I signed up for business listings and polished up the website, and by the fall i was getting more calls from the website than anything. I've never had much luck from craigslist, i have heard of guys on here getting many accounts in a year using craigslist, but i'd love to see there prices though. I can't stand out on craigslist myself because i dont cut grass for 25 bucks.
Craigslist is a great opportunity to put a huge gap between a professional company and a 5 second '25 dollar full service add'
