Here's my add for the spring.

I know there's a few errors but I will fix those

Very nice! Did you put this ad in the paper last year too or is this the first time for this ad?

Well you remember the Hockey tournament add... well it was similar to that so I asked my graphic guy to make me an add and he suggested to keep the same theme

This is my 1st add like this so i hope for some good results

10,25 inch by 7 in (so half a page)

What I was wondering was, how important is it to have a call to action? Where you make an offer that the potential customer must contact you by a certain date to get that offer?

Call to action = very important... I think it's probably the most important item on the business. That way you know how many customers your gonna get and how much money your gonna make. The customer has to contact the business within a certain date that way your schedule is ready for adding new customers to the list and you have to plan your routes

Oh Justin,

You just made me remember too, did you get calls from the hockey insert? I didn't see any pictures of that yet either! Are you tracking your incoming calls to find out where they heard of you from?

I didn't receive any calls yet due to the fact that it's still winter up here and spring ain't for another 2 months or so but I've noticed when I go check out my stats that there was a few people that downloaded my coupon from the hockey tournament.

I got the hockey program in my car... I will scan all that when I return from my trip from Curacao (not far from Aruba).. little island not far from Venezuala
