Question Posting The Signs Tonight! Suggestions NEEDED!

Well i received 100 lawn signs last week. I plan to post them tonight so i get the full weekend of advertisement (code enforcement doesn't work weekends ). Is there any suggestions on how to post them up? Any heads up?

Keep us posted on what you find with your lawn sign usage.

Here is a blog article that I think will help you.

How to use lawn care business bandit signs / yard signs.

Show us some pics too of what they look like.

If you are putting them on telephone poles then fender washers help prevent you from losing them in the wind. Ladders also help prevent Codes from reaching them. At least for a while.

I just did a search and found this really nifty idea on how to install them with a pole attached to a staple gun. Check this out.

Steve: thats a great idea. I might have to purchase one later down the road haha.

Well i put out 70 on friday night and they lasted until today. About 50 or so got taken by code enforcement. I got a total of three/four jobs and i gave out nine estimates. Here are the jobs i got:
1- 3 Acre fire prevention (not a for sure one yet)
2- Bi-weekly service (charged for a first time clean, lots of weeds)
3- Weekly service, pooper scooper (3 dogs) (charged for first time clean/ over grown weeds on a slope)
4- Weekly service (didn't charge for first time clean, yard was very well maintained by previous owners)

So i got all my money back.. I still need to post pictures of them. Im going to post the last 30 this friday night.

With the return rate i plan on posting signs at least every 30 days or so. Very pleased on the out come!!

I wanna see the pics.

If they are going to be taken down at a predictable time, would it be worth your while to go out there and take them off yourself and then reuse them?

How did you choose where to put your signs?

Keep us posted on how all the jobs go too!
