I think the graphics are great. A suggestion I would have for you is instead of having your name up top, why not have fall leaf cleanups at top and then put your name lower and smaller.

Usually you want the headline to be attention getting as it will be the wording the customer will see first as they click through the screen. If they see something they want or something that interests them, they will stop. If they don't they will keep going until they find it.

Does this help?

Thanks Steve I think that is a very good point I will def change it up! I was worried about it looking too amateur but im glad the graphics are ok.

From one Devil Dog to another...I like it!

There was a study that came out a while back, it was saying peoples eyes are drawn to the center of what they are reading. Menu's, newspapers, postcards, etc. Maybe put an attention grabber in the middle, with the font a different color and a little bigger?

Thanks brotha and Semper Fi!

Good idea i think i will try and see how it does.

Im gonna put a different ad up each week and see if one gets a better response than others.

Keep us posted on how they work.

If you had two phone numbers, you could use one on each design and see which brought in the most calls. Or you could use a different coupon in each that had to be presented at the time of purchase to help you track as well.
