We letter up our trucks not because we expect people to write our number down when they see our trucks.
Instead, we do it for name recognition. The more people that know your name, know you're in business, the better it is for you.

Well, My view on that is if you do good work and the neighbor notices, they will look out the window and call your number.

As far as driving down the road, I dont get many calls.

I get a lot of my business now from existing customers as well, but u never know when the neighbor across the street is watching you. A lot of times they would rather call then come over and bother you.

another option is the lawn-sign, they're pretty good to leave around the property for a day or two after completing a project. they also can help you target your area's as well.


ps, CAPS IS CONSIDERED SHOUTING!!

I use truck lettering because it adds to company image. When people see your advertisements, they will remember seeing your trucks on the road. People feel more comfortable with a company that portrays a professional image IMO.
