    I do not have a scanner so I am unable to upload exactly what the add looks like(color or format), so this is in TEXT ONLY.
    This is an add I simply made up on Microsoft Word and pass out to homes in my area. It is basic but I feel for a text only ad, it still conveys what I am trying to market. Also, it is just a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 post card ad.
    Any input would be appreciated. Thanks! :cool2:

    I'd use different words, and leave off all the "( )" 's

    Thanks for your input.

    So what "different" words would you use and what's so bad about the "( )"?
