Anyone ever try Ebay????

For the heck of it, I stuck up a cheesy Ebay auction for lawncare in my area, included my phone number... Recieved two calls and going to talk to them on Monday... In 2 days, it has had 33 views.. Not bad for 80 cents...

Very very interesting!

So what did eBay charge you to put it up? Do you mind sharing the link?

I e-mailed that guy. He said it didnt really work out. Could have been just the way he had his set up though.

I was really not sure what to put for the price though, went with $19.99 as $20 is my minimum, tossed in "average size yard", which leaves it open ended.. I think the key is to make sure you list the towns in your area so when people do a search for their town, looking for who knows what, they will see it... I guess I will keep putting it up, if I keep it up there until June it will only cost me about $14... Might try to figure out how to stick my logo etc on there next time, spruce it up a bit..
