It is a ton of fun chillin with great party people all weekend long. People are really nice when you are giving them free stuff. We have tons of awesome shirts left. My wife's cut up DIY shirts were the most popular. So she has been cutting up as many more as she can for this weekend. We are much better prepared for Biketoberfest later this year.
Without a location to sell and no more peddlers Licences it's not an easy task to sell at Bike Week. So we switched tactics to Donations only and that went pretty good. No matter which way you approach people at Bike Week they will either be super nice or tell you to piss off right away. As a group of people I would have to say they are loving and generous to their fellow bikers as well as honest people doing honest work.
The second part of the goal in selling/giving away T-shirts at Bike Week is to get people to put them on right away. So they will show up in the many pictures taken and all their friends will see the ad for the Bail Bondsmen. I am sure you can assume that there is more than just a few people jailed during this massively over crowded event. Last year 2nd 2 None Bail Bonds made a very nice profit. So of course we are doing everything we can to increase that for them this year. Having people put the shirt on will hopefully lead a cloudy mind or a heart full of despair remember who is publicly advertising to bond out fellow bikers with no collateral. The "girls" ask guy to swap shirts with them so of course the guy hsa to leave the Bondsmen advertisement on his body for the night. Also the "girls" will take a picture with the donator as long as he/she has the shirt on.
Making money in hand at Bike Week is Dangerous yet easy when you carry around a small child with candy beggin for donations as we saw one scout leader doing this year with a kid that wasn't even his own( wonder if the parents knew?). Then the best thing for attention a pair of knockers that will get heads turning every time. Let's just say we had no problems getting people to talk to us.
I used pictures from Bike Week to practice the fine art of Hashtagging on Instagram
