"Good stuff Clifford.  There definitely is a spot for billboards.  Out of curiosity, what type of traffic do you get from the tracking number? Is it only for that billboard?  Also if they come in off the web do you track it?"

"Try some TV spots on cheap local channels. Try to get with a local news channel and do a "how to buy cars with bad credit" segment  (makes you seem more trustworthy) Billboards havent paid off for me."
