    Have the opportunity to purchase a 1" square YP ad for $65/month or to consistently be in the local newspaper's "Service Guide" for $170/month. My experience with the newspaper is mixed -- sometimes excellent, sometimes miserable. What would you do? I'm looking for fast results. Thanks! Chris

    The service directory/guide is where I started and had numerous calls. So many in fact that I had to quit my full time job almost immediately and have never had to advertise since.

    Thanks. This is what I needed to read. I knew it was in the newsgroups somewhere - I just couldn't find it... Thanks! Chris.
