Justin,

That is awesome Fall Lawn Care Flyer (http://www.gopherforum.com/uploaded-files/images/fall-2010-flyer.pdf)! How will you be distributing them?

Also this brings up another question. When a business is able to purchase a piece of equipment that helps them be more efficient, like this leaf vacuum, what is the best way to go about marketing that?

Ultimately, from the customers point of view, what are they getting out of you upgrading your equipment? How does that benefit them?

I'll be printing flyers and inserting them in the next issue of the local newspaper which is October !

I don't know, i've never tried to market this way before. I am willing to try new things to get new customers so I am hopping this marketing works.

I know, I got to get those printed A.S.A.P. for the next issue of the local paper and the deadline is Friday but I was told I can bring it in before Tuesday !

Speaking as someone who has created print advertisements for over 10 years, that's pretty nice. A few minor things I would have done differently, but overall, quite nicely done.

By the way EXCELLENT job on that flyer. Want to tell us what program you used to create it? I have a guess but not sure.

What would you have changed on this flyer? I am sure Justin would appreciate any ideas you had on this. He may want to implement them the next time he updates his flyer.

Great! Looks so good I'd believe it if you said professional ad people made it.

For me, Steve, I would have used a black outline on the lettering on the bottom left. Don't know how it would look but to me that is the hardest part on the eyes.

I am not in the same area as you as winter is a long ways away from now. I do not have the same season/weather as you

Justin, nice work! Do you think the average homeowner your are marketing towards knows what that piece of equipment is? Yes 'leaf removal' is self explanatory but with the 2 seconds of attention you will get with your newspaper flyer, I think I'd show before/after pictures rather than a machine that they might not instantly connect to their needs..

Good graphics

Haven't had any calls yet for me to do a before and after picture. I tried it at the school across the street the other for the hell of it and the vacuum works great when the leaves are all dry.

Hopefully I will get some calls to get some work done. I haven't got any yet out of 1300 flyers

From past experience, you probably won't get too many calls until all the leaves are out of the trees. If people are going to pay for the cleanup, they will wait until they are all down. Unless you put in your ad that they get two cleanups and charge accordingly. That way you can get the bulk out with the first cleanup instead of all at once.
