I'm still getting new customers from my newspaper ad. At the beginning of the season there were only a couple of ads. Then there were about 20 for about 6-8 weeks. Now it's down to 3 and mine is one of them. I'm glad I kept it. I'm also getting weekly customers at my price and they're asking about fall cleanup. It's a business expense. A three line ad is only $56 a month. Best gamble I've made so far. I'm even planning on keeping it thru the winter (if you can call it that) just so I can keep the low rate. I guess I don't have a question or some ground breaking news but, just thought I would encourage the lurkers out there to go for it.
