    About 5 years ago I tried to put together a type of trade show and seminar for the central michigan area. I had very little support, only about a dozen companies, so I abandoned the idea after a few months.

      Could you explain to us more about what you wanted to do with that plan? What would it consist of?

      Do you think there would be an interest if you conducted seminars in different neighborhoods about lawn care and fertilization? Would this help promote your business?

        Well, I was going to have a trade show of where reps from different companies could come and show off their products. I also was going to have guest speakers, outdoor training areas, business training, etc.

          Do you wonder if having lawn seminars in your neighborhood would help boost your goodwill and business name within your community?

            I think that if something like that was here it would be great for fellow green industry professional and pull a lot of us together. I don't know if other businesses or community members in the area would like at it as a big deal.

              I think the http://www.greengiantlawncare.com/seminars.html site positions their semiars to be for the public. Maybe they are able to teach local residents about lawn care and ultimately the resident would hopefully decide to use that lco to service their lawn.

              At the very least you would come across as an expert in your field.

                I personally feel trying to teach customers or other local residents will eventually back fire on you

                  Are there topics you could discuss in neighborhood seminars that would help your business grow?

                      Well, my whole goal is first to get the industry in the area up to par in regards to business practices, insurance, regulations, transportation laws, employee training and payroll, etc.

                      After that, then I would like to move onto the homeowners and educate them as much as possible

                            Here where I live in the Far Northern California, we have a show twice a year (spring and fall) called the Home and Garden Show. It is put on at the local fairgrounds. It gives all the local businesses in the home and garden industry to showcase their business and products. it goes over very well and is a great place to hand out business cards and offers a lot of networking possibilities.

                              Have you ever taken part in the show? How was the response? What type of things did you do for promotion at the show?
