No, but I've seen a few like those. I guess they are funny but do they really sell the property?

Billboards - no.

Bus benches - no.

Shopping carts - no.

I have my name on the back of many shirts. I sponsor the local dog jog each year. Maybe that's not considered non traditional.

But I have thought about having my biker boyfriend tattoo my name and company logo on his back. He doesn't like the idea. He said it would clash with his other artwork.

Someone goes postal and makes headlines across the United States for free. Some other poor guy trying to sell a car has to spend $40 bucks and hope for the best. It is a confusing world at times. Trump knows how to get it free btw

When I first started nearly 30 years ago I used just about everything, read and use the Guerilla Marketing book well.

It has been a while since we have done much advertising though, the referral machine works well unless we are in expansion mode.

I have sponsored ball teams so my name went on shirts and on signage at the ball park. I have sponsored academic banquets for the schools. I have done billboards and radio and tv but they to me are more traditional.

There was an agent in San Diego who was in every (before the movie) theater ad in our area and did well. I could imagine that a billboard and even, shopping carts could possible provide leads. Bus benches... not so much.
