From what we have seen here on the forum, they do but it depends on how many other lawn care business owners are marketing in the paper.

Have you looked in yours lately and counted? How many were there?

Also, what would you be promoting now?

Have you considered something like craigslist.com ?

Well i would have to say, Yes and No.
Let me explain, i have never had any good luck with the major papers, but have had good response from the penny saver, a classified paper around here.
The best thing to remember is this, as my dad always said " K.I.S.S. Keep it Simple Stupid" If you look at most of the ad's in the paper they run on and on and people dont like that, Be to the point, Co. name, what you are A LCO, phone #'s web site. good luck

Sherman, what kind of wording would you advise putting in such papers as the penny saver and when do you advise doing it?
