    Either you are past the date where people are looking at companies.... (not very likely) or there is something wrong with your ads, or your service.

    Give it time. I think I only sent about 500 this year. I got a few calls within a week and here about a month later the calls are rolling in. Local newspapers have gotten me alot of calls. I also lettered my old trailer that i no longer use and parked on my buddies lot which is in a high traffic area, thats gotten me a few calls.
