Smart Advertising

I customized post-its on vistaprint, and will be sticking them to doors.

I think that is genius idea. Next time I would put company name on there as well though.

Hi Scott,

That is a very nice design! Can you give us some insight into your design? Sometimes I do wonder how much advertising has to be dumbed down so that potential customers get it. Do you find that ever to be an issue where you have to over explain things?

It was late at night, and I was bored.

I was on vistaprint, and I created a poster for the local shop that fixes my equipment. "Thank you xxxxxxx" and it shows pictures of all the work we've done. Hopefully they will hang it up in their shop :)

Then I realized, I could make custom post-its (sticky notes), but I figured they would be really small so I decided to throw some images together and a phone number and nothing more. If they turn out well, this could very well be the easiest advertising I could do.

I'm going a little nuts with this advertising lol, I have so much product to handout as is.

Oh that looks really nice! Are those post its or are those brochures? How will you distribute them?

Handing out business cards with estimates on the back is VERY simple, but we needed something even faster. I decided to create those custom post-its.

They turned out darker than I'd like, and they actually arrived crumpled - I will be complaining to vistaprint. They are neat though, very small!

As for the last images I posted, those are brochures. I plan on giving them to properties I would really like to do. Lawns where I can mow their front and back with the tractor, no obstacles, simple simple simple lol.

I'm going to stop spending money now... I think...



OH and my lawn signs came in too! They look fantastic!!!

Steve 05-31-2012 10:13 AM

That is fantastic! Nice work! Your marketing keeps getting better and better.

Good idea with the post-it's. I think fridge magnets could be ideal also. I have not done this myself yet. It's on the list of things to do, lol. Anyway, I'm thinking a strong magnet with an attractive landscape image on the front and your business name and phone number.

I would just give it to people I do work for. Then they'll likely call you back, and their friends might notice your magnet on their fridge. It will certainly be easy for them to refer you since your number is on their fridge.

sharplawnsturf 12-11-2012 06:52 PM

has anyone found that sticking any advertising material to a customers property has caused any problems? one of my competitors that is a large company in the area has gotten a few bad google reviews for simply sticking advertisements on the mailbox, and causing paint to peel off.

i was gonna hole punch corner of flyer and run rubber band through., it mabee to much work.. lol. i may just wedge them in the door like i've seen some people do.
