    As some have read here I was running two classified ads in my local paper.
    I want to show my tracking here to those two ads. If interested check back as I will update as needed.

    These are the two ads I decided to run. Cost is $20.00 per ad per week. First printing hit houses yesterday.

    Yeah I could see where you would get more hits off of the more professional looking ad. But are you trying to get work from both ends of it? You know the ones who really care about their yards and then those who just want it done at a cheap price?

    Not a bad idea, It will be interesting to see what ends up with more hits.

    Your lucky that ad is ony 20 a week. My local paper is hitting me up for almost 60 a week for 4 lines, and the box is alot smaller than yours!

    I will be watching your progress. Please keep us updated weekly at least. I will be basically doing the same thing, trying to grow my business in both directions too. We have noticed a big market for quick cheap mowing too, but havent started advertising it yet.

    Hi Craig's Mowing,

    Good for you for experimenting. If you get a chance, do a google search on creating a classified ad. Most will probably tell you that you need an attention grabbing headline to get the consumer to stop and read your ad. They will also say not to use your company name at the top because most people won't know your company name and it won't make them read the ad.
    I hope this helps you as you work and edit your ads further.

    Great job :)
