I assume those pics on your site are from the web. As soon as you get some lawn clients take pictures and update your site. It makes you look legitimate, not like your just pulling pics off the internet. otherwise good looking site

That is fantastic! I like how you offer lawn care and property maintenance. It's a wider base to allow you to find the most profitable services.

April has been real good to me so far. Been keeping busy with snow plowing, spring clean ups, Power Raking and Areation all in the same month:)

I think a combination of things has helped out. I'm in the new phone book that just came out and my website has been a big help getting customers. also the signs on my trailer and truck cant miss them. I was thinking of doing flyers as well but don't feel the need to right now..

That is amazing the phone book has worked. We don't hear much about phone book advertising anymore since the internet has become bigger and more popular.

Are you tracking all of these marketing efforts? Do you ask people where they initially heard of you from?

yes I track were I get my customers from. we have a lot of older people were I live so that's why I took a chance on the phone book and I get younger people from my web site.
