    Does anyone advertize in The Blue Book for commercial work?

    http://www.thebluebook.com/

    How well does it work out for you?
    What's your experiences?

    I really don't want to put in ad in there for 140.00/mo and have nothing come out of it. I'd like to get your prospective on it before doing it.
    I'd like to get the whole 411 before meeting with the rep next month.

    I had this same question when the 2010 edition was delivered to our office. We just have a regular listing for our insurance agency and I see a bunch of landscaping companies in there with large advertisements. I was curious about how effective that is for them.

    Depends on the projects that a company does...If you do residential landscaping then it may not be worth it, but if you do municipal work or new commercial projects then it may be the way to go.
