Never done bandit signs, but they seem to work according to others. Newspaper ads, in my opinion are a waste of money. I’ve had small ads in the penny saver type papers for years and can’t recall ever getting a deal from them. With ads two things happen. One people call expecting FMV or above and two, I get numerous calls wanting to get into the business asking me how I do it.
I think business cards are good. hand them out to evryone you meet. Offering referral fees to people if they bring you a deal also will work.
What has worked over the last 25 years for me is just keeping your antennea up as you progress through your day. You never know when you will come upon a lead.
A big help for you would be to attend the upcoming CREOnline Convention in Atlanta this month and network with everyone and ask them how they market themselves. I 'm no marketing expert myself.
