Anyone use their local paper for advertising and if so how was the response?
I have a coupon book ad coming out this week but thought I would put an ad in the local paper while I wait for that to mail.

We've been considering an advertorial type ad in local papers, but haven't pursued that yet.

Would like to hear some feedback also.

I'm getting (what I think are) good results out of a local community ad booklet (no news or anything, just ads) that is published every two weeks. So far have got around 3.5-4x gross out of what I put in.

when I put an ad in the paper I got calls from the elderly. if that's the demographic you are after, give it a try.

We always get a couple of elderly people who call each month for window cleaning because of an ad we post in a neighborhood paper. We've only tried one paper, but it was very cheap. I think it was $50 a month.
