When to start advertising?

I'm in the Michigan Area. I ran one ad for a week, and got one call, that was in the beginning of the month. I'm trying not to waste my money running ads that aren't gonig to get me anywhere(I know it takes $$ to make $$)

But, should I start running the ads again now, or should I wait, and if I do wait, how long do I wait? Anyone have any insight they would care to share with me?

I would say wait until the last week of this month. In my experience, most people will wait until it is past time to cut before looking or calling. Door hangers could be put out now. They are a very cheap form and affective.

Thanks for the help, Double A.
I started flyering houses last week, and I'm going to keep doing that.
