I want to buy an advertising bike and advertise local businesses on boardwalks in my area. What can I expect to charge for advertising?
Thank you for the input. I have enough capital to buy a few and cover minimum wage for a few employees for at least 2 months. I would like to test the waters and see how the market is before all of that.
I have a hard time employing/managing people that don't work as hard as me.
No specific customers yet, but the area is located in a prime main street spot (bars, surf shops, restaurants, etc.).
If I rode the bike for a day or two with a "Advertise here! Call 555-555" I would have no problem picking up customers.
One concern I have is how has someone not thought of this already? I have yet to see anyone advertising this way.
Nah, totally out of my arse.
I mean, prices are generally pretty high in the area, so you probably would be able to swing much more than that, but I really wouldn't know.
Considering that he is making the signs himself though, I'd say he could make much more than 100 a day
>In london £200 a day. £250 a day that sort of range.
potentially - though you'd need to specialise...
for example if you were proposing to advertise a strip club and cycle round the square mile or canary wharf at lunch time, or on a Thursday or Friday afternoon you could probably charge that or more...(the sort of places where the customers are and where they've got no chance of paying for fixed advertising)
if you're young and female even better
in some areas of central London you'll see immigrants standing there holding a sign or wearing an advertising board simply because it is cheaper to pay a human minimum wage to do that than it is to pay for similar size advertising space in those areas
you'd also need to look into insurance if employing people to do that... if one of your mexicans runs down a kid or gets injured/run over himself then you could get all sorts of law suits against yourself from your employees or from members of the public... especially in the land of freedom
