Okay, I am getting ready to do some advertising for fall clean ups and snow removal. I called my local news paper to place an add. After they told me how much for a month, I hung up the phone. There are at any given time 20-35 landscapers advertising in my paper. The only size add they offer is this stupid little one about 2 inches wide by 2 inches tall and the writing this big inside of the dogone thing!!!! So anyone who would have a hard time reading couldnt even read it. So the price they gave me for this was damn near $2k for the month!!!!!!!!!!!! I immediatly hung up and said wow!!!! I wanna get my name out there more, but holy crap!!!!!! Thats alot of $$$$. So instead I am just going to join my local chambers of commerce. That and do a butt load of door hangers, postcards and flyers. Just had to vent that one out there. How much do some of you guys/gals pay for a monthly newspaper add and how big is the add?? I just wanna see the different prices so I can laugh at what a ridiculous price that was.
