Anyone place any newspaper ads? If so what section do you place them in? What does the ad entail? Is it color or B/W? I'm considering advertising in the paper and curious to hear how results where... was it worth it etc. Also, what did you use to design the ad? THanks!

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Hi bcflawnlandscape,

Some of the LCOs I have talked with in the past about this suggested to keep it simple. Something like this.

LAWN MOWING
Great price
Call xxx-xxxx

I believe the ads were placed in the service section. What are your thoughts?

been reading up on a few things, the service section in our local paper is flooded with LCO's with the classified ad. I am looking to do something a little differently, maybe take out a 5x7 ad in a section of the paper with something, or even thought about seeing if the paper would place a flyer of mine in w/their paper. Something that would be different from your typical LCO classified ad.

If I had a choice, I think I would choose the flyer route in the paper. Maybe use colored paper then?

Of course I would have to have a different type of flyer due to the fact the flyer i'm using now has the price to do the lawn box in the bottom corner. I'd have to get rid of that in order to make it work don't you think?
