Give me your thoughts on my new ad

I always like to get your feedback on my advertising. Everytime I post an ad somebody gives me a helpful piece of advice.

This ad is going to be a full color postcard. I am printing up 1000 of them and will be handing them out door to door. They will be 6 x 8. The attached image shows the front and back. All said, design and printing of this ad will run me around $500

I need to add more copy in the blank area on the back. Originally we were going to do a addresses there -- but I think I have decided instead just to deliver them.

My target audience is high-end properties where the homeowners are looking for the best looking grass and are willing to pay for it. In addition to high quality turf, I also provide a personal service that is not available from other big companies.

Let me know -- I can't wait to hear your thoughts!!! What other info would be good to add?

I have to admit, that looks really sharp!!! Did you do those yourself? I might hire you on to do some of my advertising designs.

No - I have a graphics designer that I work with. He is very talented I think. I do what I do best and have experts do the rest.


It pays off in the long run I have found.


Thanks for your input!

Hammons, that ad is top notch. I like the colors and it looks completley professional. Do you offer the weekly grass cutting or just the fert programs?

GOOD LUCK!
