    I have t-shirts, but I think a truck or trailer with a sign carries more weight.

    You have to remember what each component of marketing is for. Websites, T-shirts, truck lettering, etc. are not a driving force to make the phone ring. These things although can land you calls have a different job. These things help contribute to branding "name recognition". These things help to make your appearance look more professional. They also give you a slight edge on those who do not stand out in the crowd. Name recognition means a lot. Also, if they do not know that you exist, do not know what you do, then they can't call you.

    TLC nailed it. Most of these items are just for branding purposes. A website can be helpful for existing clients. It can be a good way to interact with them and even allow them to pay online for your services. By listing all of your services on their it may spark a thought in their brain as well. They may add some more services from you. Good Luck.
