I don't want to overload myself or saturate an area to the point of annoyance so I do 100 pieces at a time and give it a two week rollover before hitting the next area.   That doesn't count regular hand to hand distributions and reloads in racks or other business locations.

Depends on the content, subject matter.

An EBM goes to EVERYONE effected.

JL/JS goes to 50 closest.

Valuation models to those in house more than 10 years.

and so on.

NEVER to everyone because any topic that broad, broad enough to interest EVERYONE will get very little response.

I send out 500 pieces every other month to a neighborhood as property value reports.  There are over 2800 homes in the community, so I picked the streets where I wanted listings.  It works.

I read this question twice and I think you are asking about repetative mailings to your farm. Minimum once a month. If you list a house it should be followed up with a just sold also.
