Bandit Sign Campaign

8 Replies

Hello everyone, I am finally having the opportunity to dive into this Real Estate beast. I just bought a batch of blank 18x24 yellow corrugated plastic signs. I read around on a few different places that its better making you own signs Vs. buying a batch of them that was already preprinted. 

The ugly ones get the most looks. 

So I've decided to create my own signs. I also figured that the PPS(Price Per Sign) would be approx. 28.58% cheaper if i create my own signs. So that would enable me to purchase more on the budget that i set for this campaign. 

Since i am also working on a limited budget, I've figured it would be best to put them out on Friday night and pick them back up on Sunday night. City workers don't work on the weekends ;).

I am also looking for better paint to use for the word house...so if anyone has any tips..post a reply. Here is the pics of the signs. 

Love the initiative! 

You're right, the city workers don't work on the weekends, neither do most prospects. I found the best response rates putting the signs out on Monday. 

Best of luck!

You put your signs out on monday? So should i leave them out for the week? 

I don't see anything wrong with the blue. They say red is the most eye-catching of the colors, but I think you have the whole eye-catching part covered with a bright yellow sign.

I like it, though! Simple, to the point, and well thought out with a budget in mind.

Yes I use yellow and BLACK WORDING but back to timing I was told put them out Friday and take them up Sunday night... Am I wrong?

 I am picking them back up on Sunday to minimize the risk of me losing my investment.

***Update***

I have received 1 call so far. It does bring in all kinds of different leads. The caller inquired if i had any rentals that i could rent out to her. 

Happy Investing! 

You should add rental investors to your list of contacts. Make rrefferal. I do all the time. Then when I want to ask for something people feel like they owe you one. Or at least hear your whole pitch.

 Yes, I would leave them out until someone took them down. Sometimes I was lucky and a few signs would stay up for a couple weeks.
