    So I dedicated 1000$ to advertising for the month of april. My 2 trucks cost $300 total for stickers and my 30 day newspaper ad cost $107 for 8 lines in color. That leaves me $600 dollars to play with.

    I'm curious what you guys would do with that money. I am in a county of 100,000 people that I can get to within 20 minutes. No major cities around here with the biggest town about 60000 people or so.

    Thanks for any ideas you may have!

    If you feel that is sufficient enough advertising, I wouldn't spend any more. No need to spend more just because you have it.

    Go to the nearest casino and gamble.. You have a better chance of making money and it's a hell of alot more fun.

    I don't think it's possible to advertise too much! Wondering if there are any ideas for medium size area that yield results this year?

    I like that idea! My significant other works for the largest grocery store in the area full time and her truck is plastered with decals and she parks by the entrance that most people use, hoping that brings some results. What else you guys have?
