I look for indicators that the advertiser is well-established, and has taken the time/effort to create an advertisement that is free of "gimmicks" and uses proper English.
Have you seen any craigslist ad gimmicks that turned you off to that company? What kinds of things should lawn care business owners try to steer clear of putting in their ad?

I like that idea of adding zip codes. I'm going to do that from now on.

They are a Lawn Route reseller...they build a lawn route for you and sell it to you at around 3x the monthly service.

Here in Southern Cali, lawns can be very small 300 sq.ft. to about 7,000 sq.ft.

Those are fantastic! How often do you find yourself changing your craigslist ad graphics?

Do you test them at all or do you mainly focus on rotating them to keep them constantly changing?
