    You learned a hard lesson my friend. Every yellow phone book no matter what the phone provider name on the front usually has 6 pages of lawn care guys. The few people that use them go to the big full page ad or the first name on the list. Over priced and ineffective. Sorry guy.:usflag::usflag::usflag:

    I gotta agree with Patriot. Phone book is very expensive and not real effective in my opinion.

    I have had two YellowBook salespeople call me in the last month. They both said they saw me driving down the road and got the number off my truck. I believe it.

    Lettering on trucks and trailers have brought in a lot of business and the same goes for door hangers. I used to do a lot of yellow page advertising but have scaled back this year.
