I also donated a light package to a local charity that gained a lot of air time. Another thing I used is Google Adwords and Facebook advertisements. I targeted females 35 and older within 25 miles of my residence on facebook. All avenues of advertisement got about the same return. Next year I am gonna double or triple the amount of advertisement I did this year. If you want to hear one of my commercials it is on my website www.cuttinedgelawncare.com
here's a stupid question for ya. how did you make the radio ad? does the station work with you when making an ad? i guess im just curious on the whole set up process.

I had the general idea and they created it from my ideas....it took several takes until I was satisfied with the final product. Next year I am also thinking of doing a tv commercial so that they can get a visual of what we are trying to sell them as well. I got a lot of calls from people wanting me to install thier lights from my ads but I did not put up any one elses lights for liability reasons as well as profit reasons.
