I was thinking about creating an account. Has anyone here had any luck with this service?

I was thinking about it before, but it just seemed a little expensive. I do admit that I think it work though because I see the adwords ads all the time.

Hi nlminc,

I am sure there are other LCOs out there who use this form of advertising. I just am not sold on it yet. If you get a chance, ask around people you know where they would look for someone to perform lawn care. Give them a few choices in your informal survey and include searching on Google. I would bet most people would say yellow pages or flyers before they said Google. But that is just my view.

I think meeting people in your area and word of mouth is just the best way for a smaller service industry.

I agree with Gopher about that. I just think it would be a waste

I have had an account since April. I get a few hits on it, but not much. You only pay for the hits, which can range from 10 cent to a dollar depending on how much you are willing to spend a day. I have mine set up for a 10 mile radius to my personnal address, so only people in my area will see it.
 
i got tons of hits when I did it..but I never realized the phone calls. I think lots of people clicked on the ad, but never called or emailed.....mostly tire kickers.

The few jobs I did receive worked out well for me...but my bill was upwards of 200 bucks per month....so I stopped.

Reminded me a bit of ServiceMagic...hmmmmmmmmmm...
