Here is Matt's newspaper advertisement.

I posted it here because Matt wanted to see if I could do anything with it but I can't. It's too blurry.

Anyone else that wants to try to make it clearer please feel free but I think it needs to be retaken.

i was still unable to get the newspaper pic up.

But this is what it says. I can always change it around.

So just tell me what you think.

Matt,

Have you thought about adding some kind of limited time offer and then also include a promotional code?

Then you can track to see the effectiveness of the ad and you would get people to jump on it.

there isnt really much you can do in a 1 x 2 ad like that, i could add a little more, but everything would be bunched up and people wouldnt be able to read it.

You could say something like "10% off spring cleanup call by x/xx/xx"

Or something else.

Maybe in one line?
