Do newspaper ads work for anyone?
It really depends on how big of a town you live in. Around here newspaper ads work very well but I have heard from several people on here that are in larger cities that said they don't work at all. The same can be said for yellow pages. Smaller communities tend to get much better responses with newspaper and yellow pages and larger cities do better with web pages and internet advertising.
Wondering the same thing myself! Thanks!

I have run ads in two different local papers, I have gotten enough work from them to make it worthwhile to place the ads, but it is not the best way imo, word of moth is the unchallenged #1 advertisment there is
Word of mouth advertising only works once you have an established business thats been doing quality work and been around for awhile. New businesses need to advertise to gain customers
I run an ad year round in local paper and it seems to do ok. Word of mouth, even better. One new account pays for a year of advertising.
Ad seem to work good here in a small town
Use a nice professionaly designed open house sign at the entrance of a neighbor hood followed by a well designed door hanger. It gets their attention. People always want to know whats going on.
