    You want to look more professional on craigslist? Make a flier on word with nice fonts, pictures, and etc. Transfer that into a picture file. Upload that onto your website or use one of those free picture hosting websites. Now when posting on craigslist, look up the simple code to insert a picture in HTML code. That can be pasted right into the text box for the ad. Submit the ad and when you at preview instead of that little line of HTML code, there will be your picture/flier. This puts you miles ahead of the many companies posting a simple text ad.

    IMO it's way too wordy/lengthy. Focus on one aspect of the biz you want to advertise (like mowing). Get your foot in the door with them and then you can upsell them on all your other services. People are lazy...they read 3 sentences and they zone out. That's just my opinion, though.

    I say company name, phone #

    mowing/trimming/edge blow...this size is this price...this size is this price

    That's it. That's all I'd put. And the other guys advice on posting it as a flyer is really good too.

    I use the Flyer method too. Catches the eye that simple text ads cannot achieve.
