    I done a 3 month booking for an ad like this.. The paper went out monthly to over 37,000 addresses..

    1st month past.... No calls
    2nd month... 1 job
    3rd month.. A few jobs...

    Barely got the money back to cover the cost of the ad..

    Good luck with yours tho

    how much does CRB check cost ya? think worth having?
    at least it's getting your name out there, and those jobs might lead to more in that area. I'm toying with idea of having one, but not decided yet whether it's worthwhile, or just do google addwords instead.

    Hi the ads going to 90 000 houses, plus I have 3 other paper around me to cover a total of 250 0000 houses, I am going to push a waterpole article to them next week to see if that make a difference and prehaps gets me on the map.

    I dont know how much the CRB cost, my wife did it. I think it was under £100 though.

    Another advertising idea I came up with was putting my business card on the cars in the car parks (asda ect) best thing to do is stick them on the top of the driver window not the window wiper..
    at first I thought it was a waste of time but 2 came back after the rain stopped. going to do a few hours on monday. the trick is do the car park - wait a hour and the cars should have refreshed to a whole new lot and do it again.
