Videos Vs Flyers: In 2019, is paper flyering still worth it?

Short answer? 

Flyers are most effective when there is direct interaction between you and your customer. If you don’t have that, then you’re not getting the best bang for your buck. 

In the table below, we compare having 10,000 flyers printed to having one video distributed to 10,000 targetted people on social media.
