  • Off the Wall Idea

    What off the wall marketing idea have you done, that actually worked? Maybe not necessarily crazy idea, but something that nobody else might think of.

    Ok here is an off the wall idea. I haven't done but it might attract attention.

    What if you created a mascot for your company and called him something like green man, enviro-man or lawn man. Where you wore some sort of costume with a mask and cape and you cut lawns or applied chemicals that way.

    LOL I bet that would get some attention.

    Then you could go to the local schools and put on seminars about lawns and the environment.

        Can you imagine kids in the area saying to their parents "please mom can we have green-man work on our lawn too?"
        HAHAHAHA

        Then that could be part of your employee dress attire as well. Next thing you know, you have franchises all around the country based on this.

        Kind of like the way the blue man group works as well.

              What about putting a big giant weed in the middle of a lawn for advertising, and by it have a sign say something like "Are weeds taking over your lawn, then call......"

                Yea that's good! Maybe a big dandelion! Would you want it to be a colorplast sign? Or make it out of something else where it is 3-d? Then maybe it has a light inside to light up at night

                  Or how about something crazy like this snow man. A snow man in spring or summer is kinda funny and you could probably get them cheap! Then put a sign in front of it like this one.

                    Or how about using one of these 'sky dancers' on your trailer. You could turn it on when you are mowing and then turn it off while driving.

                      that would be a great idea

                      I am really surprised seeing that snowman, the amount of people that do not have lighted signs during the day for advertising. Sure, most LCO's shops are at their house, but I just really surprised.

                        Here is another idea. Could you contact the local high schools. Maybe they have a marketing class or a grafic design class or just an art class. Tell them you are looking to have some type of crazy promotion designed to help promote your company. The one you like the most will win $100?
                        Then you could promote this to the newspapers that the students are working on the contest. Maybe you could open to all people under the age of 18? So you get even crazier and wild ideas

                          I have thought about that before. I should say getting kids to do some type of business stuff or something. Like stuffing envelopes with my marketing material to learn quality control procedures in business classes

                            How about this. Go to your local sub shop or pizzeria. Come up with a sub sandwich or pizza that you like and have it specialized for you. Then name it after your business. For instance "The Tiedeman Sub/Pie."

                            Ask the facility if they will offer a discount for the sub along with any other discounts they may want to promote. In return for you handing out door hangers.

                            Then promote this on one side of a door hanger. "Thanks for making us so popular! We are now the only Lawn care company in the area with a sandwich named after us!"
                            Include coupons for the different things the store wanted to promote.
                            On the other side of the door hanger, promote your lawn services.

                            Put some flyers at the store to promote the new Pie/Sandwich along with the services you offer.

                            How's that for an off the wall idea?
