    How's everyones marketing going for those of us who live in the Connecticut/northeast area?

    Do you guys already have your advertising done? Have you even started yet? How many ads do you have and when are you going to get them out?

    I know I already asked this question in another forum but it applies here as well.

    This is my second year in business. My church bulletin ad went in last week. One pita from that. Some door hangers went out (aprox. 150 out of 3000) waiting for next week for the weather to break. My newspaper ad goes in the paper on the 28th for 8 weeks. My flyers have been in the grocery store for about 2 weeks also.

    its march 20th and 75% of my advertising hasn't hit yet.

    We still have snow on the ground in my area. Regardless, I start all my ads in April, and continue until July 1. At that point, I still advertise, but scale way back. In the fall, resume heavy advertising for aeration, cleanups, seeding.
