    I have mailed out around 650 post cards over the last few weeks and have not heard a thing from them. Very disappointed

    Timing has a lot to do with it, my ad's been in the paper since tuesday before the 20th and now, by the 3rd edition, finally the phone is ringing (and omg it's really ringing, 6 calls in 2 days) but before today it didn't do squat for 2 weeks.

    The thing is, had I waited to try and hit the sweet spot, I might've missed it.
    So, I'd rather waste a little and catch it than try to save money and miss it.

    Guess tomorrow's my first official grass cutting day lol

    I think its a little early for us in the north. Ive sent out about 12,000 and received 10-15 calls. Hopefully They will start to pickup soon.

    I get good results from it. I think postcards and doorhangers are the way to go.
