WRONG! They may not work for you but they do work for some. We do newspaper ads almost all season and we get more work from that then any other medium. Also, phone book ads, as mentioned on this forum numerous times have been beneficial to a some wanting to expand to commerical accounts.

Don't give bad advice...and if you do back it up.
