    My ad runs in a weekly newspaper fro 8 weeks currently, about $112. It isn't fancy, but gets my info and web site out. It is 2"w by 1"h.

    Hi FFMED74,

    I like how you use 'firefighter owned.' Have you ever heard any of your new clients mention that is why they chose you?

    I must admit that struck me a bid odd too.

    Not as of yet, but I have had people at other jobs say they feel more secure knowing that I am a firefighter, it is more of a trust issue, I guess. Gopher I think you went to my web page www.straightwaylc.com and I give a free safety walk-through as a sell point to new residential customers.

    I gotta say running an add in the newspaper was a waste of time for me. I got a ton of calls but they where all price shopers and I didn't sign realy anything up. if you bid work cheap i guess it works but if you bid jobs to make money I wouldn't waste the time running around doing all the estimates. Thats just my experience for what it worth.
