Billboards were a waste. Radio is helped alot....but the best part is i get about 10 runs a day on multiple stations in return for maintaining a 5000 sq ft property. Hell of a deal. You are correct on the yp site. My big grip is the lack of updating and proofing on that....but it hasnt stopped the calls from coming. I have already been lookjng into a local Seo marketing person to step in and help me push my online presence. I have done the getlisted and all as well. Online is where everyone needs to be....in as many places as you can be too.

So are you tracking all new leads as to how they found you?

Yes. I do ask any lead how they found us. I ran billboards for 8 months and had 6 leads. . . Pitiful ROI. Local classified paper....got several calls but all from low paying customers looking for the 25$ Cuts. Phone ties with internet has been my most prominent. I have had lots also from our vehicle lettering and numbers on our uniforms. Word of mouth. And as I mentioned....best ROI for me ia a deal i workes up with the local radio network. They have 5 stations and they run me on each of them about 8 - 10 times a day...and all we do is keep their 1/4 acre property up....full service....but that is one hell of a Deal. I would encourage you to try to tap into that if you hav the ability..

I'm going through hell canceling with YP.

After talking with 2 representatives, 1 of which was the guy I signed up with. He gave me a hard time about canceling, said I made a commitment and should stick with it. Both claimed there was nothing they could do to cancel me even though it was only 3 days after I started the contract.

So finally to a supervisor who says that she has to conduct an investigation to get both sides of the story. Whatever that means.

They wound up taking the first two months out of my account even I after I spoke with the 2 representatives and clearly told them I was canceling and didn't want funds taken from my account and also sent a certified cancelation letter to their corporate head quarters. I'll be disputing the charges with my bank today.

Get your attorney involved immediately. You informed them of your decision to cancel the agreement within 3 business days and after you informed them of the cancellation they misused confidential information that you provided as part of the agreement. Once you informed them that you terminated your agreement, they were no longer authorized to access your money. They have, at the very least committed theft. That is a crime. Get your attorney involved.

I tried to cancel the lawn letter thing after I realized how useless it was to me. He told me I can't cancel it because of his contract. He still won't cancel. I've had it for months now he's updated it with a couple little word documents and that's it.

Its really a joke how people try to use contracts to lock you into something.
