    i might advertise in the yellow pages next year for lawn care, landscaping and snow plowing was wondering if it is worth putting it in there do you get lots of calls by putting in the phone book. i have a meeting with some one about it this week.

    First look at the book and see how many others are there. If you are going to advertise in the yellow pages you eather have to be first (AAA plowing) or stand out above the others.
    What % of your budget is for advertising?
    Todays world you may concider a web page.

    I don't think it's very good advertising. I haven't got many calls, most were just looking for a phone quote. Of course, I on'y have a 5 liner, but they jsut want too much money for any decent size, IMO.
