The new Adbox Card holders work great on Vehicle magnetic signs

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
THAT IS FREAKIN SWEET!

Are you keeping track how many cards are taken each month and where they tend to happen most often?

Do you do anything in specific to make your truck available for potential customers to take a card from your vehicle? Like park it somewhere at a busy intersection or something like that?

I do not keep track anymore. I used to, but stopped because people are always Taking a card!

Yesterday I was at a Birthday Party in Daytona Bch FL and parked on the street, and my friend said someone just pulled up to my car. I looked out the window and they were taking a card. I still get so excited everytime.

This Morning I had 6 orders, and one was from Daytona Bch FL.
That is what makes it so cool.

I make sure I park close to walking trafic everywhere I go.
When I go to Walmart. I love to sit out there and watch people taking a card.

Thanks!
Artie

This is brilliant.

Here is an idea. You should make a video on youtube kinda like Billie Mays had done and then cut to showing a person taking a card. Show yourself at the Walmart parking lot and parking near the foot traffic.

You are an outgoing guy, you can do this!

I'd love to see what you create!

Funny Story

My wife went to Walmart today and she was putting our baby girl in the cart next to our car.
A guy pionted at our card holder and says. Wow those are great I realy need a pair of those on my Pest Control Truck. He turns to his wife and asked for a pen to write down information, and my wife says
DDDDAAAAAAHHHH TAKE A CARD!!
She said it was just so funny, his own wife called him a Dumb Ars.

Just wan to share some funny stories.

Walmart is the best Place for parking advetisments!!

Thanx!
Artie

Great Story!

I had another idea. Would it help if you added some kind of flashing L.E.D. lights around it too? Can you imagine!

Or if you added L.E.D. signs to the products you offer to gain more attention.

I did look into that too, But We can not put flashing or any lights on the vehicle. There would be fines, and possible liabalities. To RESKAY!

That would be Cool.

I do use one of these in my Model Center and a big Neon Open sign.
The other sales people make fun of me, and that is when I ask them if they need to borrow any money, cause they have crappy sales numbers.

I love these ideas keep um coming!!!

Thanx!
