I live in Minnesota where it is very cold for much of the year. In the summer i advertise to buy homes with my bandit signs, classified ads, and various other ways. In the winter however the signs do not work because the ground is so hard. Do any of you have any advice for advertising to find sellers in cold states like mine?
Here’s my method, fwiw…I pull my pickup right up close to a utility pole and stand in the bed or on the side and, using a long framing hammer, put the bandit sign as HIGH up a wooden light pole as I can reach. Since I’ve already pushed the top roofing nail into the sign, I can usually get the sign out of harms way (10-12 feet high) for a while.
If the poles are concrete or steel, I use those long zip ties that you can buy in $20.00 packages at Home Depot/Lowes then put 2 together through EACH of the top and bottom holes in the sign, then ZIP them onto the poles and push the sign up as high as possible once the zips are tied, then tighten them tightly.
I also use an 800 phone number to avoid unpleasantness.
