    When advertising in the newspaper services directory, which approach has yielded the best results?

    Hook 'em with a line or question to get your ad noticed?

    List services performed in hopes they are looking for someone that offers "mulching"?

    Offer reliable, licensed, insured, english speaking service?

    Discount for % off XXXXX, or other discount gimmicks?

    What will get the phone ringing with buyers?

    A basic 5 line is running about $90/mo and does not leave much room for words that won't pull their weight. 2 lines are already accounted for with company name and phone #'s.

    I have the best luck advertising the list of services you want to market.

    Ours is $99 for 8 days i guess that is why there is only about 6-10 companies in there.
