I think that's a pretty common operating procedure, actually. Unfortunately...

I have one on my front door. I hate salespeople or religious idiots coming up and knocking. If they do anyway, they get a few choice words.

I really don't think it matters much. The hard-core people - the ones you absolutely hate to have come around - are going to ignore a "No Soliciting" sign anyway.

I made a sign that I put on the inside of my storm door (facing out) that reads 'All Solicitors Will Be Sacked'.

I'm a Monty Python fan, if it wasn't obvious.

If someone comes to the door anyway, I'll send out the mother in law to regale them with stories of her latest medical procedure on the front steps. So far, ten minutes is the record.

Around here, solicitors must be licensed. If you call and complain, the police check and ticket them if they don't have one. Then they are escorted to city hall to buy a license.

Goodness I detest them too, electric companies, telephone companies, religious proselytizers, kids selling magazines to 'win a scholarship', I want to put up a sign too but fear it won't stop many, if any. Besides, I already promised hubby the first sign I make with be for the back gate "Plant Cemetary - where all good plants come to die young" (as half of what we put in do just that).
