    just wanted people's opinions on how useful a local TV ad could be and or instructional videos on lawn care etc etc. What's a fair price for any of this? anyone have any experience with this side of the industry?...i know markets are going to be different everywhere but what are people charging/paying for commercials or instructional videos?

    Hi SHM,

    Here is a quote from a previous thread dealing with this topic. A great read!

    "Cable TV Commercial,

    We were servicing the local cable news station owners properties and let myself be talked into a 30 second spot commercial. The commercial itself was excellent and well produced, and had it running something like 30 times a weekend for 8 or 10 weekends. Cant remember the exact details or cost but yielded zero calls for new work.

    Still got a lot of pride seeing my name and face and tv while the ad was running.
