3 Secrets Driveway Marker Companies Are Using To Get Your Business

The fiberglass driveway marker industry has changed drastically since it started about 10 years ago. The competition has increased and with such a simple product, it is hard for companies to stand out from one another.

Below, I am going to let you in on three little marketing secrets driveway marker companies are using to get your business. Believe it or not, some of these stakes may work for you, but overall they are offering an inferior product for pennies cheaper than a Pro Stake. Here are some of their secrets:

4 ft snow stakes

1. 3 Foot Driveway Markers - Did you see 5/16″ cap and tape driveway markers for $.75? Welp, that’s because the company took a foot off the stake so they could offer a cheaper product to keep up with competition…. Ultimately, the snow covers the stakes…. but until it does, you only get about 2 feet of stake visibilty if you go with this option

2. Diameter - Look, some companies can do 1/4″ diameter, but for the most part, 5/16″ is  the standard for any pro snow removal company. 1/4″ snow stakes are a good way to save money, but they can give you a fit when installation time comes

3. Hollow Stakes - $.39 stake sale? Yes, but they’re hollow! This means you can get through the season, but these are throw aways. They’re flimsy and brittle, so even if they stay in the ground, they will break easier than most stakes would.

When To Pick Up Your Snow Stakes From Properties

driveway markers on islandLet’s face it, the snow stake investment that companies make each year is significant. Smaller residential snow removal contractors are in the $500 range, while larger commercial companies can be over $5000. One of the many benefits of choosing a high quality fiberglass driveway marker over a cheap wood snow stake is that you can re use them year after year. Unfortunately, many companies don’t bother with the snow marker pick up process and throw away thousands each year.

March 15th to April 15th is the ideal window to pick up your snow stakes from all your properties. Depending on where you are geographically and what the weather patterns have been, this can obviously change pretty dramatically. reflective driveway marker

The main benefit of picking up all of your snow stakes at the end of the year is the saved money. From the polling that we do, Discount Snow Stakes estimates that 15% of driveway stakes will be lost to breakage and theft, so it is important to be vigilant in the pick up. Also, retrieving your snow stakes reduces overall fiberglass waste which helps the environment.

So if you haven’t picked your snow stakes up yet, get out there and get them so you save yourselves some money on product costs for next season.

These pictures show Alma, the Wahlberg matriarch, testing out our driveway markers and basically agreeing that they are the best fiberglass marker on the planet. Ok, maybe it doesn’t show that, but you can see our trademark 9″ reflective tape that distinguishes us from any snow marker company in North America.
