John,

Great insight! Do you want me to put your company name and phone number on the banner? If so, what number should I put on it?

Do you post to craigs list with the same spelling errors that you have on this post?? I find your post very hard to read. I would suggest taking a little time to proofread so you can sound a little more professional.
