Here is one great marketing idea I came up with while playing golf.

I was sitting on the bench at Hole 9 and was thinking how crapy the bench was.
I said to my self that if I build a bench for the golf couse holes, the club owner would just love it. New benches Free!!!

I talked to the Club Owner and told him that I would make 2 new benches for him on hole 1 and 10 as long as i could put my advertising on the back.

He said Yes and asked if I would do all the holes. I told him that I would get people for the other holes.

It cost me $160 for each bench, and the best part was the Club Owner gave me $200 back because he just loves his new benches.
That only cost me $120 for both benches and they stay there for as long as I want.

I put the bench next to the hole yardage and put my Outdoor card holders on the pole next to the bench. People look at the ad and take a card.

Story is not done yet!

Now I talked to the gas station owners that I deal with and they all said it would be okay to put my bench outside around the stores. There is always great spots next to the air or vacuum machines.

Free Advertising, I just build the bench!!!!

Here is a Picture! I took this picture with my cell. sorry bad quality!

That is fantastic! Did you look into making them yourself with the concrete molds? Would that be cheaper?

Here is a site that shows you how to do it.

Great website, I just do not have the time, but that would save a ton of money. I pay $50 each leg. that $100 for the bench, the other parts are cheap. The laminated full color sticker cost me $60.

I could start another business if I had the time. Just charge other people to advertise on them, and I could get the placements for free.

Thanks!
Artie

What do you put the back sticker on? How to you apply it to the bench? Is it one big sheet of vinyl?

Also can you show us a picture where you put your take a card dispenser?

Another thing I was thinking, what if you some how or another maybe burned into the plastic, your web address or maybe a small display of your website so when others see your take a card dispenser on vehicles, they will know where to buy one of their own?

I will try to find my picture or get some new ones.
My friend owns a fence company, so used vinle fence for the back of the Bench.

I did buy a vinyl cutter, so I can make all kind of vinyl lettering. I am still learning the software for the cutter.

Thanks for that idea, I wonder if I could burn the website on them after I get them from the manufacture. It would cost too much if I have them do it.

I have to look in to it!

Thanks!
Artie

Or maybe have it put into the mold?

But that looks like it was printed out full color on a sheet of vinyl. And behind it, it looks flat and not like you just stuck the vinyl sticker to the fence slats?

I had a full color sticker done, and then put on the back.

It turned out real nice weather resitant too.
