    i have some money left over from door hangers

    should i put it into direct mailing or yellow pages?

    either one cost over $2000 (i think)

    how much was your YP ad?

    I advertise in 2 yellow pages. Mine was $125 each for the whole year. This year it went up to $175. That is for your Company name and phone # only printed in bold type. It has got me a lot of work. I dont fool around with door hangers and flyers any more.

    do you know how much an ad would run?

    $175 isnt bad for a number, but they get shadowed by the ads. i'd think

    I pay $100/month, it's my first year though and wasnt sure where to put my advertising dollars though. Got more work than i could handle :rolleyes: , wish I would have been more prepared for too much work, rather than preparing for failure. Live and learn right? I am getting excited for next year already ha ha ha/
