    Dude LOL you got to be joking, you can put ANY ad in the paper come leaf season so long it SAYS you do leaves, it doesn't matter if you look like the WORST or if you're green in the face, EVERYBODY will call you for leaves!

    Here's all you need:
    Yourname + Yourphone
    And say you do Leaves

    You'll get a SLEW of phonecalls, guaranteed! Just make sure you put ONE word on that ad (the word is 'leaves') and it doesn't matter what the rest of it looks like but yes, I'd include the phone number heheh.

    Never will I do that again if you need the work then I understand entirely but I found the people that called were very impatient. They would expect me to drop everything and be there in 1-2 days I had my own accounts it was not fair to them to do some one I met on Sunday ahead of them when they stuck with me for the last 8 months. As topsite said you will get calls mostly early ones and the reason for that they feel you should kiss up to them and give them a better price I never did play that game to well. Thank god I no longer have too.

    Timing is everything , so dont put in in too early.. or at least run it until the snow flies... I hate cleanups.. but i too may ad this season ,, just to get a bunch of extras before the season wraps up.
