    Anyone use them?
    How do they find them?

    I can have a small box for £40 for two weeks in mine.

    Is it worth it?

    Cheers

    That's quite reasonable. How many readers do they get? Will you be the only window cleaner in the paper?

    Newspaper never tried, how often do you check the add sections?

    Local newsletters work good for me,

    There's a local trade type pamphlet that comes out once a month round here. I think it's £27 plus VAT for a quarter page which is about the size of A7. They cover loads of areas and you choose which area you want your ad in, and each area has a distribution of around 4200. I'm going to go for it next month and have two areas.

    With newspaper advertising, if your going to do it, you have to go in there regularly - try haggling - I worked for Johnstone press, we could never negotiate on the classified, but I reckon you could now. Did they give you the price, per single column centimetre? How many insertions is that?
