I now have set up a low key Google plus business page that is strictly geared towards my lawn business. The Google plus account lands me on the second page on many relevant searches on Google.

Is this a free service as well? Im not familar with google plus. I do know I want to get something set up so if a person does a seach for "lawn care in (my town)....) My name will pop up with phone number so they can call me.
I agree with a lot of others that say their customers will not find them on facebook...BUT i also believe that elderly people might like the option of simply hitting google search or yahoo search and type in the statement above. Why....because yellow page ads are small, and hard to read for some eyes. Additionally, as an example, the Iphone 4S with siri make it real easy for an elderly person to ask siri to find what they are looking for. "siri....seach the internet for lawn care services in (my town). From there, the phon does the rest and its easier for them to do. So the digital world is going to open up to some elderly people somewhat. Others will just stay completely away from it, so I understand where yall are coming from on that.
Just my 2 cents and where im trying to go with this. Simply want to ad some free digital advertising to get our name out there.
