This one's for marketing buffs

I'm in sales position for a trucking company. I'm looking for ways to get leads (information, like names and numbers) on potential drivers. We already utilize extensive marketing, and I'm having trouble coming up w/ fresh ideas...maybe a rut. Any suggestions are welcome.

Got any military bases near you? Get with them on their transition programs.

If your near an army base, they have what is called the ACAP program. Soldiers leaving the service spend a whole week going through career siminars, resume classes, etc.

The only ways I could suggest is to park recruiters in the truck stops to give your speel.
Advertise on XM radio Sonic theater and old time radio channels, thousands of us drive all night long listening to those channels and never hear an ad for a trucking company, they all advertise on the trucker channel but the trucker channel is listened to by the old guard that allready know all they want to know about "HUNT"

I don't love porn. You need counseling.

You may be onto something... It might be a good way to promote the forum too.

Don't be. I don't require those type of images. I don;t really care to discuss it, so if you want to talk about it, find someone else. This was a member asking a legit off topic question and yall thrashed it.

Well, thanks for the help I got. Say what you will a/b J.B., but we're not a front runner for nothing. Thanks Amerijeep! Mike, I'd like to help you out. I'm not a recruiter (those guys get commission, I'm hourly), but if we have anything you'd be interested in I'd be happy to help you out.

Don't mind me, I'm just a bitter old trucker and I hold all the top tier truckload carriers in the same contempt but I don't mean any personal offense

I heard an add for J.B. Hunt on the Old time radio station, was that your doing?
