  • Halloween marketing idea

    I was raking some leaves earlier in a big pile, here's the proof


    Anyways, I had a brain fart, while your bagging these leaves into garbage bags and since Halloween is coming soon, why not buy some halloween bags and sell them at 10$ (i think it's resonable since you raked them) and sell them to people so they can put in their yard for decoration

    I like the idea of using those bags. It would be awesome if you could get them printed with your lawn care business information on them too.

    Or how about this.

    Take the bag side of the halloween pumpkin leaf bag



    Then make a stencil with leaf cleanup and your phone number



    Then spray it with black paint and you got a great way to advertise.



    Use one of these bags when you are bagging leafs to get the word out about your business.

      You could even take this idea one step further and put up an inflatable halloween display on your property and maybe at the home of your family or friends in town too to help promote your services further.

      Use a stencil on the inflatable display


      It would make for a great evening display.

              Vacuum results

              All I can say is nice, I am so sorry I could not talk to you on the BB using messenger, I had a big one on and the wind here this evening is nuts.

              I LOVE the image and in marketing, try it and see what happens, have you done anything with the mulch er?

              Your capital outlay should be small, great idea so why not, who knows the people buying these bags could be potential clients.

                  Justin,

                  Does that shred the leaves at all? It looks like it does a fantastic job. I wonder what is the best way to maximize time and also maximize the amount of space it takes to dispose of the leaves.

                      Looks good but I have to ask why offer a discount when you haven't seen the site. We do not have Craigslist here and I know people are looking for a deal so take the following comment in stride, when I see anything offering a discount they are desperate to get rid of something, you are offering a free estimate so.....personally the market that we are in look at this as an act of desperation and I am in no way suggesting you are...give it some thought or ask your network what they think.

                        Ive never looked at it from your view. I dont think anyone in this area looks at a discount as a call for desperation but i suppose its a possibility.

                        RARELY do i offer discounts, only senior discounts to be nice and attract them a little more. and then i have refferal contests with my customers that i offer discounts or gift cards.

                          That is fantastic! Great attention grabbing headline. Yea if you could have a blank one on here for others to download, that would be much appreciated.

                            My fiance and I thought of a great idea for marketing our business during Halloween and fall. We recently had our new trailer painted and the tongue hitch replace. Refer to attached pictures.

                            Anyway. Maybe have a Halloween party or free hayride for the neighborhood kids in your neighborhood. Post flyers on telephone poles advertising about a Spooktacular haunted hayride. Gets some hay bales, and maybe a boombox playing spooky sounds and drive around the neighborhood giving potential customer's children a ride on our hayride.

                            We are still playing with the idea. I thought of contacting the local school near where i am moving to and asking if I can drive the truck and trailer on their sidewalk around there huge property or just drive around the neighborhood on a set route. Then as you discharge the children back to their parents, you hand them our company flyer and remind them we are hear to make more time for them to have family time like this or something of that nature. Maybe also have a haunted moon bounce in our yard.

                            what yall think of this idea?

                              Your trailer looks great! I like your idea too! Why not try it out and see what kind of results you get. You never know until you try.

                              Keep us posted!
