An ad that attracts droves...

I have been contemplating it now for some time, and after much rumination I have decided to place an advertisement in the local newspapers in order to make myself known and attract droves of rich and willing customers. The advertisement will be forty by forty centimeters and it will cost me € 90.90 for a single placement. I have a chosen a simple and straight-forward approach, and this is what it will look like:

te maken.

Nieuwsgierig naar onze aanpak?

For all you unfortunate souls out there who are unable to decipher all this gutteral Dutch drivel, I will attempt to translate it into readable English. Here goes:

Is your website doing what it's supposed to do?

» Make it work even better! And... for a decent price.

I would say that there are probably few souls out there who can resist this declaration of my unbelievably professional services, guaranteed to improve your e-business beyond your wildest dreams. And all for a reasonable and solid price. When you have a good idea, it can bring you a long way, I think.

Very nice ad Kiffin! Have you gotten any response yet? How much is € 168.40 in American currency?
Posted by Scott M at April 25, 2003 07:10 AM

For those unfamiliar with the exchange rate bewteen US dollars and Euros, one Euro is now 1.10135 dollars (25-May-2003). So that means the ad will cost me around $, including tax (19%) bringing it to a grand total of $119.13. Kind of expensive when you think about it.
