    I think that is genius idea. Next time I would put company name on there as well though.

      Hi Scott,

      That is a very nice design! Can you give us some insight into your design? Sometimes I do wonder how much advertising has to be dumbed down so that potential customers get it. Do you find that ever to be an issue where you have to over explain things?

        It was late at night, and I was bored.

        I was on vistaprint, and I created a poster for the local shop that fixes my equipment. "Thank you xxxxxxx" and it shows pictures of all the work we've done. Hopefully they will hang it up in their shop

        Then I realized, I could make custom post-its (sticky notes), but I figured they would be really small so I decided to throw some images together and a phone number and nothing more. If they turn out well, this could very well be the easiest advertising I could do.

              Handing out business cards with estimates on the back is VERY simple, but we needed something even faster. I decided to create those custom post-its.

              They turned out darker than I'd like, and they actually arrived crumpled - I will be complaining to vistaprint. They are neat though, very small!

              As for the last images I posted, those are brochures. I plan on giving them to properties I would really like to do. Lawns where I can mow their front and back with the tractor, no obstacles, simple simple simple lol.

              I'm going to stop spending money now... I think...



              OH and my lawn signs came in too! They look fantastic!!!

                  Good idea with the post-it's. I think fridge magnets could be ideal also. I have not done this myself yet. It's on the list of things to do, lol. Anyway, I'm thinking a strong magnet with an attractive landscape image on the front and your business name and phone number.

                  I would just give it to people I do work for. Then they'll likely call you back, and their friends might notice your magnet on their fridge. It will certainly be easy for them to refer you since your number is on their fridge.

                    has anyone found that sticking any advertising material to a customers property has caused any problems? one of my competitors that is a large company in the area has gotten a few bad google reviews for simply sticking advertisements on the mailbox, and causing paint to peel off.

                    i was gonna hole punch corner of flyer and run rubber band through., it mabee to much work.. lol. i may just wedge them in the door like i've seen some people do.

                      We discussed this in the past and I think it came up that you can't legally put anything on or in a mailbox.

                      Either way should be fine. The more people you talk to as you distribute your flyers, the better.

                            As you may have realized, marketing has changed. It's even easier now than its ever been too.

                            I creat pages on Facebook and get thousands of friends in the area I'm going to target. Then I post an add from my business FB and repost to the John Doe account with the thousands of friends. Then I offer some type of incentive to all my customers (like a free flat or 5% off) to just repost the add on their FB.

                            My ROI is crazy when compared to my friends (other landscapers)

                            I recommend giving social media a try. It's free!

                              Creating fake facebook accounts is also known as spam. Facebook will catch on and start banning you for days, then weeks, then months if you still continue. I'm shocked no one reported you already.

                              By posting this worthless tip for us, I'd assume Rangers don't think clearly of the repercussions. But then again, what do I know? I'm just a dumb grunt. Semper Fi.
