im sure there is alot of paperwork to go through... I was thinking of asking Red Bull since my guys drink it all day every day. I should buy stock in that drink...

I'd just use it for advertising myself. IMO advertising others would be kind of wierd.

I would keep it for yourself, I find that out of all my advertising yellow pages, ad in newspaper and stuff that my enclosed trailer gets me the most calls. I was amazed after I got my trailer done how many people called and said, " I saw your trailer parked down the road and was wondering if you could give me an estimate?".

Got a few guys in my area that advertise for their mower dealer....you may want to try that and workout a deal with your dealer,in exchange for dicounted parts or labor.

I think it is a pretty good idea. Getting an enclosed trailer this winter and might look into that. Atleast talk to my dealer see if he wants to work out a deal

Good luck with that. How many of you had to buy the hat you are wearing with someone elses logo on it? Yes, some give you a hat when you purchase or at a show, but some of you paid to advertise someone else's product.

You are advertising their product evertime you open the door and the mower, blower and trimmer come out.

Put your name, logo & info on it. If you feel strongly enough about a product, then put the stuckers in a corner.

I think if you have a landscape related ad that would be okay like a big stihl decal but a redbull decal is a different story

Why it doesnt happen.

What happens though when your one of your employees is caught selling crack at the local diner to children and your trailer is plastered all over the front page of the newspaper.

See lawsuit.

So you don't put your name and phone number on your trucks just incase this might happen?

I think it would work best with local businesses...places where you share the same type of clientele. Maybe not even exchange any money, they slap their name on your trailer and you get to stick your business cards and flyers inside their store. I really can't see Exmark or somebody bothering with some small LCO, and as far as dealers go, pretty much we all know where the local shops are anyway, probably no point in it.
