Thumbs up Check out the newest in "GEO-TARGETING" lawn customers

Hello all,
I was having a time getting my company exposure in my local area without spending my entire budget on Google PPC and Adwords. Then a friend told me about LocalAdLink and how their advertising targets by zip codes with IP addresses. I didn't really understand it so I investigated it more. Basically for my area of service, which is about 3 or 4 zip codes, I could get my company's ad directory listed for about 70 bucks a month with no contract. And what is so cool is that they send my ad lsiting around on their 3rd party websites, like landscaping.com, marthastewart.com,Davesgarden.com and some other related type websites. Then while all of LocalAdLinks advertisers are linked to one website, I am looking popular to the search engines becasue they are all linked to one website, LocalAdLink's. They had over 14 million hits last month alone. Now my website search rankings are on the front page and I am reaching my "qualified customers". Needless to say I was impressed and started working with them on the side as the winter months are brutal in this industry. If you would like more info, please go to http://localadlink.com and click on "about us" to learn more. And feel free to call me at 404-775-5876, as LocalAdLink is in every city and town in the US.

NO, but that is the best thing about it. I can get the exposure without a website. My directory is like a mini website with all my info that is needed for my customer.

I think this is good thinking on your part to utilize the internet like this to market your business.

Will you be putting together a website in the future or what is your view on the importance of a website for a lawn care business?

Also what kind of coupon promotions do you suggest using with this kind of marketing?

Default Coupons for internet directory

Yes, coupons or any type of service offer can be used as a coupon. Now, you don't want to give away the farm, but using the coupon section on http://www.LocalAdLink.com allows you to track where your customers are seeing your ads with this service. That way you are able to see if this area is benefiting with your zip code selection. And when customers see that they can get something, they are instantly more curious and will inquire with you.

Now, here is the butter on the toast. Because landscaping companies that use our services, are considered linked in with us as one listing or website. So like last month we had over 15 MILLION hits, their website now seems very popular to the search engines and places them high on their (GOOGLE) rankings and pages. A WIN WIN for very little advertising expense.

If one ad brings in one new customer, your ROI is 100% get two and you are on your way..Any questions getting your websites on our directory, pleae call me at 404-775-5876

I am really fascinated by this.

Have you seen other lawn care companies use this with coupons? What kinds of offers have you seen and which have you liked a lot?

I just talked to my corporate contact and he said that he believes that Canada is going to be a part of this incredible internet advertising platform in about 3 weeks. I will keep you posted!
