Hello! My name is Joe, I am new to the business, I live in Maryland. I am planning to purchase a toro ztr and stihl trimmer, blower and chainsaw. Any advice on getting customers would be greatly appreciated! I enjoy crabbing on my boat in my spare time.

Hi Joe,

Welcome to our forum!

Got any pictures of you and your boat out there crabbing? I'd love to see them.

As far as getting customers, there is a lot written on here and in my blog about this. Check out this area on how to get lawn care customers (http://lawnchat.com/?cat=40).

Ultimately, you want to start with and market to your social network. Get the word out about your business to your family, then your friends, then friends of friends. Get business cards made up and have everyone you know help you get the word out by handing out cards for you too.

As more people know about you and your business, more jobs will come. Also utilize free sites like craigslist to promote your business as well.

Keep us posted on how everything goes.
