Yard signs at customers or clients is good. It tells the surrounding neighbors that your client trusts your company and likes the service. Yard signs on busy corners and in random areas means the company is desperate. Their is a protocal on placing signs at a existing customer. So you need to figure that out.

What kind of life are you seeing out of your signs? Are they cheaper and print falling off after 6 months, or do they las 2-3 years before some fading starts?

I agree with the guy that says it helps more with branding. When people are actually looking for someone and they look up several companies and they recall seeing something about yours they are more likely to go with you. It's kind of like putting a logo on your truck. It gets the name of your business out there. Everyone that sees someone with lawn mowers in the back of their truck will know they mow. It's getting the name out there and yard signs are another way of doing this.

The guy that made the thread says he has had great success with post cards. I sent out 1750 nice post cards with great incentives to my ideal clients a week ago. I spent 700 bucks, and have had 2 calls in the last week none of which have turned into clients. I don't know how you are successful. I have seen much more productivity through door hangers where I live. I must say having having a website and an online presence is EASILY the best thing one can do if you don't have many clients to get referrals from.

So you guys know, there are a variety of signs that are referenced here. The expensive Vistaprint versions are full color and should be used at customer's properties. If youre going with neighborhood advertising, you'd go with the cheaper version.

At 250 pcs, you shouldnt pay more than $2.25 each. Those would be one color screen printing, 2 sides on 18x24 coroplast (corrugated plastic). These would be your best bet and last forever! We have old ones that are 4 years old. Also, make sure to buy your 'H' stakes from a local sign supplier instead of the sign company youve usedfor printing. I use Midwest Sign Supply, and pay less then $1/stake.
