    Mike, it seems that I have rubbed you the wrong way. I'm sorry, that was not my intention.

    I was agreeing with you and do appreciate you feedback. I was just saying that while getting work for next spring is important, I need to be cost effective with my marketing approach. I think it came across a little snippy. Sorry about that, I wasn't trying to be offensive.

    Pay no attention to him. he's a cranky ol' hippie that hardly works, and drinks wine all day as he cruises the highways in a tin can winnie :)

    Wait a minute, that sounds pretty darn good right about now!!

    I've been regularly deleting the e-mails as soon as they arrive, which seems like every other day now. :rolleyes:

    A well designed smaller ad, placed frequently will draw more calls than a one shot special. Often the first ad or two get ignored.

    What kind of publication is it? I will say this, I get 3-5 different publications per month in the mail with ads and coupons for different companies and industries. I may have used ONE coupon, or called ONE of those companies in 10 years. They usually get skimmed through and thrown in the recycle bin. I get a great return on google ads, and I haven't even used them this year at all. Not one bit of advertising this year except our mailer to existing clients.
