HERE IS A POST FROM THE PASTOne of you said you really wanted to see the pot holders my company gives out at times. Do any of you have any other non-conventional promo items you hand out?
Looking for a place to buy stickers with my company name and logo.<SNIP>
Stickers are all about people seeing your name and phone number.
In my years I tried them all, and they kept getting bigger and bigger to be able to cover one already pasted on by someone else. Then I tried ball valves with letterd handles. Get in the house again I'd see some S.O.B pulled the cover off the handles -- replaced them or defaced them. Anyway it was not working.
So I backed up a few years and took a look at something that worked and is still working. Here is a copy of a post I made on 6/13/2015.
Works for some -- this always worked Photo is of a 1997 truck. I also did this with 1975, 1984 vans.
Now I see the same thing in a Hodes Catalog. I am now put out to pasture, [just like American Pharo -- stud service only] but I do small repair jobs for the old customers. It is not unusual to see one of these cards minus the O-ring hose washers hanging in a garage. This tells me the ad worked and was retained. For distribution I would put cards in public places E.G. gas stations, I laid them on the table in Post Offices and so on. Not many only 5 or six -- they would usually disappear the same day I put them out. Of course we always left one at the job, and every new house had one hanging before we left. The idea is not the cheapest the hose washers cost a bit. I printed in-house on a laser printer prior to that the printer had a plate made would print 2-3 hundred at a shot.
