    Is this going to be a text or a graphical ad?

      Most likely just text with my logo or something simple. Im junt not very creative with things like this(you give me some landscaping though and im your guy lol) so i dont have any ideas on what it should look like.

        Well, what size are you looking at for the paper and graphics will usually cost more in the paper than just text.

              This is the only copy I can find at the moment.I ended up leaving off the email address(Ritchiem and I were working on getting my website set up).I also removed the Licensed and insured/commercial and residential text.Just seemed like too much info in a small space.The ad size was 4x6 and was ran in a special home & garden section of the paper.

                        Hi MCSLAWNCARE,

                        One of the things I learned in the past that seemed counter intuitive is to NOT put your company name at top in such ads. It may seem strange to you but the ad header is the thing that must jump out to catch the readers eye. If you don't catch the readers eye, there is no hope your ad will be read.
                        Words like FREE really stop someone dead in their tracks when reading classified ads.

                        Here is something that is off the wall but may inspire you.

                        What if you did something like this

                        FREE
                        I will mow your lawn for free.
                        Call now.
                        xxx-xxx-xxxx

                        Then when they call you could have a special offer, you will give them their 5th mow for free with a sign annual contract.

                        This should get people to call. That's an important step. Then you can get their information and check out their yard for a price quote.

                        What are your thoughts?

                            How about if we put the text in there with some grass clipart at the bottom like the one used in this flyer.
