The Value Of Signs.

A frequently asked question is......"How do I advertise cheap."

Some of you guys have signs, so to keep from being bored, move on.

For those who don't, we have some good metal signs which don't get used often. Either HOA's don't allow it or they don't seem to get stuck in the work vehicles. (my fault) Have one on a current job and in a few days time it has got us 2 estimates.

Signs are a silent salesmen. They are re-useable and if you don't have at least one, you ought to consider the investment.

I don't know why anyone would believe that signs are for "bottom feeders". It's just perception, but I always that the bottom feeders were the unlicensed guys who hid from the authorities buy NOT advertising and instead selling on price alone. (just MHO)
I use the coorigated plastic ones. They are one color on a white back ground. I order 500 at a time for $250. I can put them in yards or on street corners(make sure to buy your permit). the metals ones are expensive and always seem to get beat up by the neighborhod kids.
Couple of questions:

  1. Do you plaster the area with them? If so, how often?
  2. Are both sides printed?
  3. Where do you apply for your permit?
  4. How long do you leave them?
  5. How is all this working for you?
