How many people have taken this approach? What are the results? I just put an AD in the local "Shopper". It is a local ''classified'' paper that is inserted into several local papers. It gets to 100,000 people. So i just signed up for 2 weeks ( due to my budget ) to see what kind of return i get on it.

Hi Jesse,

We do hear other lawn care business owners do this. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't depending on how many other lawn care companies are in the ad.

What did you put in yours? When will it come out?

What do they charge per ad?

What we did was put in a colored business card and hey place it randomly in the paper. I havent seen any other lawn are companies with colored advertising. It cost me $130 a week. I put it in for 2 weeks to see how much return i get, if it is sufficient i will do it again.
