    Depending on what that cost you for those two years two advertise. It doesnt sound too bad too me, Roughly 12 or 13 new accounts a year from one source of advertising, it seems like the ad paid for itself and then some.
  4. $1820.00, got @ 25 calls, not accounts!!!

    3 or 4 new accounts

    Not again!!!

    word of mouth been my sucess, but going to use flyers, door hangers
