LOL, last month I did almost $9,000 and when my ad went out the phone blew up. Like it has every month for the last year.

This month, same ad, almost nothing!

I guess kids out of school has slowed things down.

Where do you run your ad?

Back in the day another cleaner told me to only take a phone book ad every other year. He was soooo right! I got virtually the same phone traffic without the extra $500 per month bill. I got calls for 6 years after my last half page phone book ad! Perhaps think about bimonthly for the same effect??? Definitely balances out slow months overall.

Not sure. This is a monthly mailed magazine that has a bunch of home improvement ads in it. I usually get 30+ calls per month which is great for me.
