The more I talk to people who have used Google Adwords, the more I think it's a scam. Will ANYONE ever tell me they actually got results from it? Sheesh.

That said... You might want to consider placing an ad in the classified ads of your local newspapers too. Many of them allow "free" ads for free. Look into it.

Also, see if any of the radio stations will let you put up a service announcement in exchange for free banner ad?
