Brochures

Post by Stevenloan » Fri Jul 21, 2017 9:54 am

Hi you guys! What do you call a person whose job is to hold a lot of leaflets or brochures and give them to people on the street? Companies, restaurants or language centers hire this person to give people leaflets or brochures to promote their services or products.

Thanks a lot!

Leafleteer or canvasser (the latter particularly if they are promoting a cause rather than a commercial product).

If they hand out leaflets and ask for a donation to their charity the new term is CHUGGER. These people are more often than not paid workers for the charity.
