I like them a lot. What is the plan with them? are you mailing them out or putting them in doors? Maybe only sending them to current customers? Also when will you send them out?

Around March 15th I plan to mail the black one to my past mulch customers. The core aeration ones are going to be a part of our door to door campagne this year. The white mulch postcard is going to be also part of door-to-door campaign.

I think they are great a little education with a customer goes along ways. It helps, the more they understand the more cost effecitive the service is. As I try to remember when talking with customers most know what the cover of the book looks like but few open it up to read and understand what is going on inside.

How many postcards do you try to get out door to door per day?

Also, do you send them multiple times to the same address or do you send them once?

The plan is to distribute twice, but with a different card each time.

On the one postcard I noticed you went with a black mulch image. Have you found that to be more popular than the other colors?

That is another great design. Do you track which of them bring you the most responses? If so, what have you found to be the best way to do it?

I use a coverage map, when I do a street, I use a colored marker to fill in the street, blue would represent one post card, pink another green another etc

More great work!

Do you experiment with different postcards throughout the year to the same area to see if some work better than others?

I like the post cards but I don't think I would Mail any out it doesn't seem like you get much business from the in what distribution way do you think works best my favorite is door to door

I concentrate doing door to door as well, mostly to the same streets we already service. I'll pick a new neighborhood and solicit to them also, I only mail post cards to current customers, but the mulch card is going to be mailed to all my past mulch clients.

I bet with all the post cards you send to your current customer base, you must get a lot more upsells throughout the year than most other lawn care business owners.

These cards are such a great way to remind them of what you could be doing next to their property.

Soliciting to my current customers has proven very smart. I dont get them all to buy more services but it does work for some.
