    Jon, in the time it took you to type this thread you could have called the paper and got the exact numbers.

    Everytime I do the newspaper ads I say never again. Then I somehow seem to try it again later that same year.

    I called the paper, they wouldn't give me their rates over the phone, only during an appointment... Its at that point that I became worried.. :)

    Yep, you better be worried. High pressure with high price tag and high promises. No guarentees of course. Try a small ad in the classified section instead of the bigger ads. See if you get any response then maybe go to the appt.
