Paper or plastic? Print or web?

Which do you prefer or have you had success with both? My partner (who’s also my mother) and I have been doing more advertising on the web lately. The problem is that most of our customers still have to have that advertising that they can touch and hold in their hand. Most of them can’t seem to see the tremendous benefit of advertising on the web. We have several websites and pay for top placement on sites like Realtor.com, etc. and we think it has been more beneficial to spend the bulk of our advertising dollars on web advertising as opposed to print. Last I checked something like 85% of people started their search on the web. Print advertising, especially in our local paper, hasn’t gotten us near the response we had expected. What are your views on this? Do you like print or web better? Do you have any sites that you really like? How about publications that are working out great for you? Do Share!

What kind of computer do you use? I’m using a Dell Latitude D610. I like it but I’m thinking of switching and getting a “tablet” computer. The kind you can “write” on the screen. The only problem is that I don’t believe Dell makes a tablet and I… more
