A local news station called me today wanting to do a report on me because I posted an add on craigslist to help out local troops. I would cut there lawn of deployed troops for free! WOW What do you think should I do it or not?

ABSOLUTELY!

Yes. Which station was it? TV or Radio?

This is all about brand building! The more you build the brand of Lawn Care Innovations, the bigger you will grow.

Make sure you let them know about your military background and how you know how difficult deployment can be on a family. The more they know, the better the human story and the better it will connect with the viewers.

If you have more questions, let me know.

Also we want to see it when it airs!

That is outstanding! Nice Work!

Which TV station is it? So we can keep an eye on when it appears?

Also I would say to consider mentioning you were injured during your military duty. I think that is a great human element as well.

One more thought, have someone in your family or a friend take pictures when the news comes to interview you. I'd love to see them posted here and you can use them in your marketing on your flyers and on your website. This is Great Stuff!
