Default Welcome Wagon

Anyone else try Welcome Wagon?

I've been listed in two of their directories for about a year. Haven't gotten a sniff yet.

I just redid my listing in hopes that it will attract some business.

Your thoughts?

It's tough. People aren't as open to print advertising as they used to be.

What business are you promoting? Does your ad have a call to action?

Yes, that's how it will appear starting in the January 2008 issue that gets mailed out.

What I had tried to give away until changing to the American Express Gift Card were two movie tickets.
