just wondering where do you guys advertis at. yellow pages, internet ect. what are your monthly price.
in my area full page ad/yellow pages. no color will cost me about $2500 monthly. valley yellow pages.
Not yellow pages too much $$ for return in my opinion.
Local directories, diner placemats small local publications work best for me in print.
I think best is 1 on 1 by joining local Chamber of Comm. Lions Club, Rotary anything you can go to a meeting regularly & chat with people
we have a full page color ad in our phone book, but of course we live in a small area so it is around $400 a month we probably get 5-10 jobs a month out of our phone book ad. we usually do 60 to 120 jobs a month average.
I hired the Blue Angels to do a skywriting show at the beach, cost $40,000. But seriously I was in the yellow pages for a long time and you really don't get a good return on your investment. Besides, I personaly haven't open a phone book in about five years, I use yahoo yellow pages, its free.
I carry a bare minimun yellow page add. We put our money in radio and have good results. The secret to good results is how the adds are witten. This is not an ad but if anyone wants a good agency leave me an E-mail and I'll send you the place we use.
Toolman - we tried the bus thing it work pretty good but i like the fire truck thing i bet that would work good.
We've been thinking about a T.V. ad on A&E and run it during the Driving Force Show or some other show that has to do with cars. We had a quote for $499.00 for the ad then A&E charges $44.00 for a thirty second spot. Do any of you guys have any advice on a T.V. ad ?
