Yes,

I had I think T-Mobile advertise for approx. 10 days a few years ago for a promotion. They did everything installed and removed the advertisement. They paid us approx. $150.

I'm interested as well.  I read a post on here a while back about a mat that used a TV monitor with looped advertising.  I have yet to find a marketing company here in Charlotte that does that.  Apparently, the way it works, a marketer comes in and installs a monitor in your store and will pay you for the space/time, etc.

Never liked the idea.

If I'm a customer the Last thing I want is a TV with non-stop advertisements.
The poster on the wall, ..... Maybe.

The Ad Stickers / Vinyls covering the top or door glass of Every Washer, and On the Glass of Every Dryer Looks like CR** !!!.
( Not just the expression, like the real effluent )

I have only seen these types of ads in Dying Laundromats.

We are already bombarded with over-advertising, and product placement everywhere.

A Clean, Classy place doesn't go for the Gross overbearing Non-Sense.
Or Need to.

I agree. I don't like them. It cheapens you.
the amount of revenue it would provide can easily be made in much better ways I feel then splashing your business with someone else's business that is not related.

Otto,

I suspect that such advertising is penny wise and pound foolish.  Is the advertising company going to pay you for the customers you lose because they are turned off from your laundromat?  Is the advertising company going to pay you for the revenue you lose because you now hesitate to raise your prices due to a less appealing facility?  Forget sideline income like this and instead concentrate on your self-serve customers and providing things that actually help them rather than irritate them.
