ULTIMATE HOME REPAIRS tell their story:

“Advertising with Tidbits is the best business decision we have ever made. Within the first week we received three phone calls. Within a month and a half, I was able to quit my side job (waiting tables) to run our family business full time. Tidbits has helped us become very successful and brings us about 90% of our phone calls every month.

Also, Erik & Dave are wonderful!  Their creative ideas, and designs are fantastic.  They even helped us with our company branding, and image.  Honestly, we wouldn’t be where we are today without Tidbits. Thank you very much!”

VALLEY PATIOS tell their story:

“My wife and I had been faithful Tidbits readers for years before we considered advertising with them for our backyard construction company, Valley Patios. As this was the first paid ad that we were doing, it was a little nerve-racking for such a “large” expenditure at the time for such a small business. Dave encouraged me to give it a try not promising anything, but just discussing some of the great relationships they had built over the years with other companies. We ended up purchasing a 6-week ad schedule, and received quite a few phone calls. Many of the calls turned into sales, and we were hooked! We’ve been advertising virtually every week for the last 8+ years now, and receive a wonderful amount of calls.

A few years back I started doing call-tracking with my advertising to make sure that the dollars we spent were actually producing results. We gave it about 6 months and then ran a few reports. Tidbits ended up producing about 50% of our phone calls from paper ads, but only cost about 25% of our budget. It was working great and now we had the numbers to prove it.

For any of you small businesses that are hesitant to give Tidbits a try, it will be well worth the dollars spent. Repetition is always key, and with the discounted longer contracts, it will inevitably help put more money in your pocket.

As readers, and advertisers: “Thank you, Tidbits” for such a great paper!”

Palm Springs Cruisin’ Association – Dr. George Car Auction – tell their story

Our car show has been known as “one of the best kept secrets” in the car show circuits, but thanks to our ad in Tidbits the word is getting out. As a result, our attendance increased, and we were able to make a larger financial contribution to the Desert Cancer Foundation. 

“The 2019 Dr. George Charity Car Show placed a half page ad in the two prior weekly editions of Tidbits of Coachella Valley. The response was terrific as we had numerous new attendees who reported that they came to the car show as a result of seeing the ad.

Thanks again for your help!
