    Has anyone tried this site? I got a response from my CL ad (not really the kind of response I wanted. lol But when I started to sign up I didn't because it looks like there is a choice of $10 a month or $20 a month, and I've never heard of the site.

    Most of the service providers in my area were teenagers or people with a full time job looking for some cash on the side. No thanks.

    are they aggressively marketing in your area? Do they come up higher in search than you? If it's no and no, I'm not sure why they'd be worth throwing money at. Look how many of these "services" there are popping up right now that only exist to match "qualified, screened contractors" (the credit card went through) with "hot, qualified leads" (oh they're 300 miles away? hey that's your problem).

    I didn't actually try to sign up. If it's free I might, although maybe I should google "san antonio landscaper" and see what comes up first. I may take a closer look at it and report back (if I don't have to pay in advance). I need to go to flyers now though.

    heres mine, i think they make their money when you want a more advanced site with more options, i wasnt impressed but maybe youll have more luck

    there are numerous sites like this; meet a roofer, meet a painter, meet a homecare provider blah blah blah, like i said, it didnt do anything for my business, it relies on people actually looking for job to be done and posting them on the site
