    I was wanting to see what worked best for you guys when it comes to advertising when it comes to installing systems? We have our usual contractors we install for and our regular maintenance calls but what was wanting to stay a little busier since the housing and building has slowed down a little and what was gonna see what kind of advertising worked for you guys best?

    I don't do installs, but here is something. I don't know if you have a website, but we do. We usually are the first company listed when people type in the key words "sprinkler repair colorado springs" or something similar to it at either yahoo or google. We just got set up at adwords.google.com You basically pay for people clicking to your site. You pay based on what you bid as your price, and depending on what others bid and what placement you get for the ad you set up with them. I've already gotten three new customers in 2 days and have paid $2.76.

    Now, I am no web guru. That's my GFs area. Kiril or some others here may be able to explain better for you.

    Ive considered it quite a bit, probably need to make the leap.
