    I have an acquaintance that ownsa fleet of 25 trucks. He is looking to lower the cost of the trailer by placing advertising along the length of both sides, and the back. Effectively, it is 2 10'x50' panels, with a 7'x10' panel on the back. As a rough estimate, the price for advertising would be in the range of 2-3K initial setup and $1250 give or take a month.

    The trailers haul freight back and forth inbetween New York City and Indianapolis, Indiana, as well as a couple other metropolitan areas in Indiana.

    If you think of the cost of a stationary billboard, versus this cost, and how many more people will see the truck as it moves through cities across America, I think the cost is reasonable.

    Obviously, this would require someone with fairly deep pockets, though. Is anyone interested, or does anyone have suggestions?

    I would be looking for a 3 year contract, if possible, on 1-25 trailers.

    PM me if you are interested.

    Either way would be fine. Obviously, he would not want controversial topics, porn or hate related, but anything else he would be pretty open to.

    I knew a couple of whores that use to advertise the selling of their bodies, via CB radiios, and got quite a response. My friend and I were using hand held CB Radios once, and caught wind of the lively chatter. It was quite humorous listening to them talking shit with the truckers, bartering and all. The truckers kept trying to talk them down on the price, and one of the girls responded, "what do you think we are? a couple of whores?" lol

    I remember one gal saying her name was "super girl", and the other was "Dixie". Anyhoo, you said something about truckers advertising, and I just happen to recall that moment of laughter.

    A 3 year contract with up front costs and 1250 a month. Did you say "lower the cost" or did you mean pay for the whole fricking truck? I doubt a city bus charges that much - At least where I live.

    Advertising is usually sold by the size of the ad. I admit it sounds interesting but not at these prices. I'll take 1/4 of a side panel - LOL or better yet maybe I'll get my CB out and see if I can find super girl .

    I wonder if advertising on super girls buttocks, or thigh would get just as much exposure - roflmao!

    I can see it NOW! "www.yoursitedomain.com" tattooed on one cheek, and a "click here" on the other! I bet you get the advertising cheaper, too!

    How's this - we commonly now see a fighter in the ring with a casino site domain across their back. Maybe I can find a budweiser girl doing the round cards to flash the audience my web address. You know the rankings with boxing viewers would only go up - along with certain other portions of the body - LOL.

    That casino that sponsors the boxers found a new guy to sponsor. This is the only pic I could find of him, it happened last week at a soccer game.



    I figure you can probably sign this dude up for a couple of six packs.

    Hey! That's my advertisement the cop s covering up! and I paid good money for that 15 seconds of streaking across the field! I think a lawsuit is in order! Of course, I will probably have to sustain a hit from a class action for offline spamming of the audience (unsolicited advertising), as they were forced to see the ad!

    In regards to the photo above, I've had to work some ugly jobs in my life, but I gotta admit: I've never had to tackle a naked guy on international television. So, there's worse jobs out there!!!!!

    As for the cost, yeah, it's expensive. The owner of the fleet of trucks was comparing the cost to a bilboard that would be seen by far fewer people than his trailers. I guess his feeling was that advertising that is driven through metropolitan areas such as NYC and INDY and all points in between would be much more effective than a billboard. But yeah, it's expensive. Anyone who's interested is free to make an offer, of course.

    Haiko has come up with a lower cost solution in his mobile Ad campaign. Obdon has an exact replica of the famous Beverly Hillbillies Truck which can be outfitted with a revolving neon URL flashing sign. Your can rent sponsorship Ad space based upon it's next destination in a 48 state tour.

    Now we just need to to cast the characters riding on the truck. Big Chuck could be Jethro and SSanf could play Grannie. Paul Nichols would be great as the conieving Banker if he's agree to streak the next town with EcomCity tattooed on his butt.

    BLFH wants to be Ellie Mae. Jed has all the bucks but can't drive the truck ...maybe Haiko will jump for that part if he's one of the few NYers with a drivers license.

    In regards to the advertising on the semi.

    I think it would be pretty ineffective. Advertising is about repetition. I think they normally say, 3 times before it sinks in. Since you are driving, this means probably 5-10 times of seeing it before you actually see it.

    So standard billboards are more effective since the campaign will sink into the viewers mind who pass by it everyday. On the side of a semi, travelling that long of a distance, most drivers will only see it once. Not enough repetition for it to be worthwhile.

    We use trucks to carry our Web site name throughout our area. As a regionally focused site, it makes sense and since the company deploys a number of vehicles every day, it only make sense - no cost, repeated exposure to our target market.

    I drive Interstate 10 every day. I can't tell you want a single billboard says. I noticed that the only time I payed them any attention was when I was thinking about advertising on one.

    I see url's on those little signs beside the road, on cars, hear them on the radio and think I need to remember that and look it up. If I don't write it down.. I forget it.

    Put your web address on your back car window. It's cheap and in their face. Your local sign company can make you removeable colored vinyl letters for $20.00 or so.

    I don't know my way around anymore. I moved to the far far west side in 1987 and I don't go any farther east then my workplace or Microcenter on the west loop.

    Even better than a window sticker - get one of these.



    It's a 3d chrome or gold URL you can put on your bumper. I had one and it looks MUCH better in real life than the picture I am posting from their site.


    The letters are raised and very high quality, just like the manufacturers chrome logo that's on most cars. I loved mine but don't have a picture.

    I sold the car AND the site but mine said "Want more traffic? InfiniteHits.com" Pretty good play on words since I live in CA where everyone hates traffic so it got a lor of attention. I got a lot of comments on it - but no way to tell how much traffic I got from it - domain plates don't come with a hit tracker

    They have an affiliate program too if anyone wants to resell them. http://www.domainplates.com
