im looking to pick up about 30 accounts,do you think 18-24(size) corrugated signs at busy intersections would help me out?

At least I think flyers would be more professional that putting things up at intersections. IMO I don't think they look good out there.

Do you already have accounts? If so, after a job (or during) place the sign on the lot and leave for a few weeks.

Most municipalities have ordinances about signage on city (or county) property. I know where I live, if its a sign, and you aren't CURRENTLY at the site working, they will take your sign. Those things aren't cheap,either. They will take it even if its on private property. Most zoning doesn't allow signage.

Flyers are cheaper.

the only thing I can suggest is calling your local city information office or zoning department. They may be able to give you the info you need.

I dont really think so. I think that people really looking for someone will go another route.

Flyers are a waste of time. They are a time waster. cheap but ineffective.

I went to my library's reference desk. Ask the librarian for the zoning regs for my section of town. Answered the question of whether or not I could park my trailer at my residence. They also had info on signs as well. I'd call the zoning department first. If you don't like the answer see for yourself in black and white.
