When i had my security company we put yard signs in every customers yard saying patrolled and protected by freedom patrol service. Believe me those signs got me alot of business! Neighbors were quick to call wanting their sign! For just $45 a month they could have one. That was my 5 around. So yes 5arounds work

For dense areas we use yard signs. We only do five arounds when we work in town home communities.

But how do you know that...aren't you the guy that doesn't track stuff?

welp, after hanging those things for a couple of months and never getting a job for the folks next door.

but you're right, i don't track stuff on paper, buy i nearly always ask how they found out about me. so i have a good idea of what's working. but i do have a hard time tracking true roi, cuz i'm too lazy to do the math.

This is the front. ( can't find the back) but the back is basically a company introduction & explanation that to give the best clean possible we use an industrial, diesel powered machine that can be a little loud,
Never thought of that angle good one

That's my question. Do they work?

Is the message the most important or just the fact you did the neighbor adding street cred enough.
Mine don't say " look what your neighbor just had done". They already know you were there for the most part. The idea behind 5 around is the the 5 most likely people to see you as your working Now have some info on your company. I would say the message is the most important to answer your question.

my thought with this, is does it emphasize that using you will bring an unpleasant level of noise?

They only know if they were home and saw you. One of the reasons why I love my yard signs.
