MAGNETIC CAR TOP SIGN – Pizza delivery vehicles often employ a magnetically mounted roof or window mounted sign. In most cases, these signs include an internal light that plugs into the vehicle’s cigarette lighter, which draws even more attention to the sign after dark. The signs are visible across a sea of cars and in large parking lots. Most cost about $150 and can be reused indefinitely.
COSTUME – Dress idle employees in a costume and have them wave at passing traffic. Costumes (such as the popular chicken, lady liberty, or hotdog) can often be purchased for under $100 and be used over and over. I am reminded of a variant on the costume idea when I travel to places like Sturgis, SD, during rally week. There you can often see businesses who hire shapely young women to wave at the traffic sporting nothing but bikinis to draw attention to their business.
SANDWICH BOARD – You see them on sidewalks, inside office buildings, and even at busy intersections. A sandwich board is a free-standing A-frame sign where you can place your message on either side. These signs have the flexibility to set them up and/or move them to a new location in seconds. A deluxe A-Frame sandwich board can often be purchased for under $90.
WEARABLE SANDWICH BOARD – A variant to the traditional stationary sandwich board is a wearable version. Have an idle employee walk along the street in front of your establishment or at an event to draw attention to your business. Professionally created wearable sandwich boards, complete with straps, can be purchased for under $75 for a blank board. For another $75 the board can be printed with your logo and message. Of course, you can create your own wearable sandwich board by using two poster boards and some ribbon for next to nothing.
CAR MOUNTED MEGAPHONE/PA SYSTEM – The classic image of a car driving slowly down the main street with a political campaigner urging people to get out and vote for their candidate has been used for years. Or the iconic ice cream truck, slowly driving down an urban neighborhood street playing music, which acts as the pied piper for kids. That same concept can bring brand awareness to your business in the same way. Either project a live voice, a recorded message loop, or music while you drive your signage-affixed vehicle down a busy street, drawing attention to your business or special invitation. A decent car-mounted megaphone can be had for under $150. Handheld units can be purchased for under $75.
