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

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 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?

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.
