    I'm down the rugby club and my mate who is a landscape gardener is advertised in the club handbook and fixture list
    35 quid a year and he gets no end of work from it
    I reckon it's worth it for 35 notes a year

    Anyone else use local mags etc

    Yes, well worth it, i advertise in a local magazine called the Village Voice and i'm the only windie in the magazine along with my son in law who is a painter and decorator, always getting inquiries. People like to use locals from the village.

    He is a local from the village whereas i am in the town next door albeit on the outskirts so only 1/2 a mile for me to be in the village

    I use to be in the great ashby local one years ago which was good and brought work in but I have done some which were rubish.
    Look at where and how they distribute them.
    For £35. It's well werth a go for the year.

    I use to always ask job enquiries were they got my details from to gauge what advertising was working.

    I took a full page ad in our local mag.

    Cost £180. He reckoned it would be delivered to 10'000 residential addresses.

    I got a total of 6 enquiries and just 4 jobs from it one of which was a one off.

    I have honestly had more customers than that sign up over facebook this weekend alone.

    Still you can waste £35 to buy a round of beer so why not try it?
