    So last week the elections took place and my city was flooded with political bandit signs/banners. This past weekend
    I decided to do some "clean up." I was able to a collect over 400 of them. Yesterday I went through them and threw out the
    ones I was not able to re-use (some were printed on both sides). I'm left with an enormous stack of signs and a ton of stakes. So what am I
    going to use these for? Bandit signs with MY campaign info on them!!! I am transforming them from political use to my economic message!

    Now the work begins (for my nephew). He is wiping the signs down and printing my info on each. Tomorrow I begin "re-placing" my new signs
    around town and picking up any others ones I might of missed.


    So what am I promoting? Pay Per Call.


    How much am I making using signs? Enough to make it worth my time.


    Does it work? See above.


    Does CJ allow it? Read the Advertiser allowable promotional methods.


    Should you do it? No, more for me. :)


    Have I got paid? Yes.


    Have you been fined by the city? No, I only place signs in areas where I see other signs (real estate) and careful not to over
    saturate any one area.

    Pay per call? I had never heard of that.

    What a great idea you have! But can you get in trouble for taking other people's signs?

    I think the actual term is: pundit

    But your mind works in an interesting way! (This is a compliment)

    Nice, do you just write your text on plain paper and put that over old message or you do some custom design?

    Nice, I used Pay Per Call with newspaper ads to test and it was shit. Could have been the offer or other issues though, good luck.

    Brilliant. It's nice to turn this political pollution into something useful.
