Who in Central Indiana Has Started Advertising?

Just wanted to see what everyone else has been doing so far and your response. I am a little disappointed as of right now. I have 3000 door hangers to put out starting this week. I have google adwords, yahoo local, banner ads on various websites, and other ads posted on various free classified pages. Hopefully once the weather warms up the calls will be coming in. I am getting many calls for people looking for work so I know my info is being seen. Hopefully the calls will come in the next week or so.

I'm on the West side of Illinois, I have aleady started to advertise. It's a little early, but we had 4 50-60 degree days, calls were coming in like crazy, I told them I was going to start this week depending on the rain for clean ups. Looks like it is going to be next week before I can start, getting hammered in rain.
