How about something like this on your trailer. The banners should be cheap and could be put up fairly easy. It wouldn't be permanent either, if you wanted to change things.

I bet AMW graphics could set you up nicely with this.

In fact you could have different banners for different times of the year to promote different things.

I have actually been talking with Tony from AMW graphics about either doing somthing like

"Stop me today for a free estimate and analysis" or "Lawn Applications starting at only $25. Stop me to find out how."

Something like that.

I have seen one trailer before that has graphics on the back that says something like "We are aerating. Stop me me now. Most Aerations only $65" or something like that. I will try and find the trailer. I actually think that it was in the Gopher trailer graphic contest.

I think that is a great marketing idea because you are giving customers a price right there up front

It really does stand out.

If you were behind them at a stop sign or street light, you could write down the number and give them a call.

Having the price on there too is pretty amazing.

The banner on the back of the trailer would not last long, just to much wind (maybe if you stay under 30MPH?, even then the forces are very high).
I would go with magnetic signs for a few reasons..
can take it off when ever you want.
can have a few difrent prices depending on what time of year it is..
and not very expensive.

the enclosed trailer looks great, but getting the price changed could be a pain, taking off vinyl can cost just as much as putting it on ..depending on where you go.
(to bad magnetic signs down work on alum. trailers..)

Another opption would be dry erase magnetic signs, you could change the "special" every day.
(Max. last 1 yr out doors)

I have never seen that or thought of that before. It's a good idea. Maybe some how that could be incorporated!
