A new trend in advertising can be seen on sidewalks across the Bay area.
People stand for hours holding signs, trying to encourage drivers to stop for a minute and spend some of their cash.
But does it really work?
Yes, say several business owners.
Lee Pattison manages flaggers who advertise for Quizno’s. He said the positions are hard to come by, as he gets about 10 calls a day from people asking for work.
“It’s just not a sticker or a banner,” Pattison said “It puts a human touch on it, a little emotion and it seems to be working well, driving a lot of people through our door.”
