Here are some ads that recently appeared in craigslist.com. They are promoting lawn care service. Maybe they will give you ideas.

I have close to 6 years in the landscaping business. I can mulch, edge, plant, remove, cleanup, trimming, or just about anything else you could ask. The only thing I do not do is cut lawns. I work by myself and gaurentee to get the job done the right way and within 2 days. I charge 12$hr for labor, the cost of mulch(which I can pick up to save on delivery cost), gas, and dumping/removal cost if necesary. With all considered, I charge muchh less than your typical landscaping company. Send me an email or give me a call @ 1-978-767-6583(leave your name, number, and address). Thanks

I would have never thought to put anything on craigslist

TigerTime 06-30-2007 06:22 AM

I have put ads on Craiglist but I have only gotten 1 customer from it so far.
I have also put some in the Memphis Flyers back pages. It is free so why not.

Do you require a contract for that or is it simply first cut is free?

How does posting it every night help? Are the repeat ads deleted? Or do you have multiple ads appear?

rudeboy 07-13-2007 08:54 PM

yeah i use craigslist too i just started putting ads on there

Steve 07-13-2007 11:12 PM

What kind of response have you had to the ads?

rudeboy 07-16-2007 05:26 AM

i had a few emails back to me on the first ad i put i put one on there every night

Little's 07-17-2007 11:46 PM

I have been using craigslist for some time now and usually get a couple of calls a week. In my ad I offered to trade my services, and have gotten many of good deals, such as a 3/4 ton F250, among other valuables. It works well.
