    I've been thinking about this for a while. Basically, I'd talk local business owners into paying me to dress up in a costume and stand by the side of the road with a sign, waving and stuff to get people who are driving by to come in and spend their cash. Could also do events and sidewalk stuff in the next town over (handing out flyers or samples). Three national chains in my area pay employees to do that currently. I don't know if it would result in more business for the companies, though. What do you guys think?

    I'd never work for money doing that type of advertising, but hey that's just me. Your better off being their advertising partner and use FB to bring all local traffic and make even more money charging them as your client.

    :D

    Dude, that's a great idea! I just don't have any confidence in the Facebook area yet. It's something to think about tho, and far more lucrative than what I was thinking. Thanks.

    I used to dress up as a koala bear to collect for the WWF - I used to love growling at little kids and making them cry.

    (but I'm older now and a parent, so I probably would have punched myself in the face if 2012 me encountered 1995 me.)

    I doubt you'd be paid much for this kind of work, maybe a bit above minimum wage.

    It'd make more sense to actually sell them services where you can make some cash. You're on BHW, you know there a million services you sell clients that will add value to their businesses and money to your pocket.

    Most mascots make barely any money. Bigfoot1 is right, there's so much you can find on this forum that's much better and less demanding (being in those mascot suits is hell).
