I like this lawn care business name "Busy Bee Lawn Care."

How about their logo? What do you think of it?

And then they carry the theme along when they say, Give us a Buzz.

Check out the back of Ashley's truck. I like the window graphics.

Did you also see he is involved with a local Business Development club?

On his site he has links to other members of his club and they do the same thing for him. Do you have such a club in your area?

What's up guys! Ash Brooks here...I did a backlink dig and found that my logo was posted on this forum - I'm flattered to say the least http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Is the participation and reply time better in this forum that in **ahem** "other" bulletin boards?

I hope so, I have so much I'd like to share with new guys and learn from veterans.

I also have a link swapping program if anyone is interested...I'll start a separate thread on that.

best regards,
ash

Quick question - I get a notification in my outlook inbox of reply to topic, but the link is not a hyperlink. I don't have a "turn on link" bar at the top either like on IE.

any idea how to get this to come to my inbox with it hyperlinked properly?

Hi Ashley!

Welcome to our forum! I love your site. You really present a friendly and welcoming image! What got you to promote that on your site? Did you do that just starting out or did that evolve over time?

I am guessing a lot of other lawn care operators in your area don't project the same welcoming attitude.

I don't know how this would be changed.

Yes, you're exactly right.

A positive attitude, marketability, fair pricing, and communication are what we have that the others don't have (ie: the larger companies who's workers often don't seem to want to talk http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif )

Also: email billing and email communication - ALL of my customers are billed by email. They love it (and so do I come billing time).

Also: Whenever they need something done, they email me and I put it on the schedule.

I can easily upsell with all my customers on email. If "pinestraw" pops into my head one day, I just email the customer, present the cost and the vision of how this will benefit them, and bam.

Anyway, I don't know it all - what can I do to my site to increase traffic and appeal? Does it load quick enough? Any tips?

thanks again,
ash

Your website loads fine!

I am just blown away by your outgoing imagery!

Did you start off like this or did you scale it up as you went?

Also, do you find yourself doing much community work? If so could you tell us about it?

*I Started off just like this. Check out the "wayback machine" - google it, to see old versions of my site

No, I can't say that I have done community service - er, actually, when I ran from the cops back in '91 on a 1984 GPz550 (and got cuffed and stuffed), oh nevermind hehe

I could totally see you being involved with your community. Maybe hosting rc events in the neighborhood for local kids. Sponsoring a local little league team.

I bet there are a lot of tie ins we could come up with that can pull together promoting your lawn care business and your love of rc cars.

Maybe you could host local races with your local rc store?

Create a local rc race league? Get the local parents and kids involved?

Why not have a section on this on your website? Get fathers and sons together on the weekend and take part in a Busy Bee Lawn Care RC Day.

It would be fun and help you reach out to more people!

During the holidays you could have a charity to give away a few rc cars to local kids that are having troubles to help cheer them up. This could make you a hero of the area!

I actually do just that - NitroShow.org is my way of giving back to the community (sometimes its hard to recall when you give back to the community, that's why I didn't mention before).

Great idea though, you're obviously a great marketer!
