How late to advertise Fall clean ups?

    I started running an ad the beginning of this month (Nov.). It runs until the end of the month.
    Was wondering if it's worth it to run it again in December?

    Last fall I had done clean ups as late as Dec. 23rd.

    You know how people like to wait 'til the last minute. What do ya think?

    No advertising this year, word of mouth works much better.

    I would think that that right up until the snow falls would be fine. We have a TON of leaves around down around here. One thing I WOULD consider though, is appeal to those that are late getting their leaves up when it starts getting late. In other words, when that time comes, you may want to change your ad to say something like "It's not too late to get your leaves up!" Or,... "Do you still have leaves?"
