Better to advertise on free sites such as Facebook, google or nextdoor.

Those other sites you mention encourage you to drop your prices to win jobs…
Not worth it
This. It’s a race to the bottom, and no one wins. People think the customer wins but trades end up cutting corners to win jobs and then either leave a crappy job, or they’re forced to add extra charges on afterwards to finish the job. It’s not good for anyone.
