    Hello Gentelmen:

    I have been seeing a lot af Q's about when to advertise. and was wanting to share my experance.

    I pull my larger ads durring the winter months, and replace them with smaller ones. However The smaller ones are about the size of a business card.

    I got a call from BAE Systems in the next town over who has seen my ad and yes we got the contract. it's bidded out at 47,375.00 per year.

    I hope this helps some of you who think it's NOT a good ideal to spend the money durring the off season. as some of you know most commerical accounts accept bids durring Jan-Feb.

    Best of luck to everyone

    keep you name out there year round.
