Default Restaurant place mat advertising

Justin posted this place mat in a earlier post. Has anyone else ever experimented with this form of advertising?

Justin do you have any feedback on how it has worked since you do this? Would you do it again?

I think I only got 1 customer out of it so far. This placemat is posted at the worse restaurant in town that could be why. And I also think my add is hidden behind the napkin since it's on the side

I payed about 300$ for 50,000 placemats.

I don't think I will be renewing it

At least, I know that doesn't work, sometimes you just gotta try a different approach on different type of marketing so yeah

Did they just distribute the placemat to one restaurant? Or how did that work?

I'm not exactly sure how it works. I think they just print it for that restaurant.
But they do other signs around town so I don't know.

Here is another pizza restaurant co-marketing flyer from David.

Dave wrote "I had these flyers printed 500 for $180 front/back and i was working at nite with the pizza company to hand them out. I was handing them out for a week now."

Remember this is based on a free pizza lawn care flyer template you can download in the flyer template section.

I got a call tonight and the guy was looking for brush cutting but he was asking for 1 km road or something like that and he said it was down below so he was looking for someone with a machine to clear i am not sure what he was talking about. I asked him where he got my name, and he told me he read my add from the placemat at the restaurant

Yeah I think people are starting to see that ad. They seem to come from out of town, so it might be a good idea

I am happy to say I renewed my place mat ad for this year. My ad will be posted in a different restaurant this time. They get about 1500 to 2000 people a month in that restaurant. It's pretty busy, their one of my customer also.

Can't wait to see the results of this output

When will the ad start to appear? Do they tell you how many restaurants in your area are getting these place mats?

They should do napkin ads too!
