Modern developments, such as websites and other forms of internet marketing, will never offer a challenge to the benefits of being able to reach a targeted market exclusively. According to Direct Marketing Association research, letterbox marketing has grown rapidly since 1994.

Despite the growth of the internet and online marketing, letterbox marketing is a very important and effective method of local communications and promotion.

The market in the UK is now worth nearly £1billion with 80% of the UK’s top advertisers using letterbox marketing.

  • DOR-2-DOR has perfected a business model as a result of 30 years of successful trading. Operating a proven and successful business model is what franchising should be all about.

  • Advertising and promoting your business locally is the key to the success of most franchises. The DOR-2-DOR business model offers you continuous and ongoing free advertising and this benefit alone creates a continually growing client base.

Distributing advertising material on behalf of local organisations offers a recession proof business and will never be replaced by modern developments such as websites and other forms of internet marketing.

Existing franchisees can be identified on the company website and during your due diligence you can speak to some, or all of them to ensure this is the right business for you. There are also numerous videos on the website where franchisees will identify what levels of success they have achieved.

Our website also contains more than one hundred client recommendations and case studies, many from well-known organisations, charities and public organisations providing glowing reviews and feedback on the services we provide.

Despite the fact that this would be classed as a low-cost franchise, the income potential is very significant. Many of the existing franchisees are achieving revenue streams well into six figures and healthy profit margins producing enviable net income.

60 Franchisees and Growing

Here are some thoughts from just 3!

I started my franchise in July 2014. I love the flexibility in the business in that you have so many things to offer the client including design and print and delivery or the cooperative mailer and you can make money from all these things. It’s a very lively network of franchisees and I would certainly recommend it to anyone considering a franchise.
Ryan Moon, Swindon

You build up your own customer base in the area in which you live, so you are very much in control of your own business. Owning a DOR-2-DOR franchise is a fantastic opportunity and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a local business to run. I am more than happy to speak to anyone who would like to contact me.
– Peirre Molyneux, Cheltenham

What I like about the business is that we are marketing consultants helping and advising local businesses. Talking about the content of their leaflets, what they are trying to achieve. The business is accelerated by being part of the network and without Jeff Frankling’s help and knowledge we would have suffered a lot of pitfalls.
