I'm Overspending My Advertising Budget Again This Year; I Can't Afford Not To...


I am considering sinking another $ 1,000+ into front page placement on  I currently own two featured listings for this area and they are getting plenty of hits and a decent amount of leads. 

How many of you are using the Featured Listings vehicle, and have you found another advertising venue that garners you better results for about the same cost? 

Where should I put my money?   The Real Estate Book, Homes & Land, the Local Newspaper, The Wall Street Journal, Google optimization, web enhancement, web design, direct mail, signage.  So many choices, such limited funds.  I need the most bang for my buck!!!

Please share your best Advertising Venues with me!  I am in desperate need of counsel!

I would love to have your input on this, as I overspend my advertising budget yet again; I do it every year; I can't afford not to...
