  • Back in the field!

    I am glad to see that there is a forum like this... sharing tips, giving advice and frankly sometimes just being blunt. I live in FL and have been in the field for many years. I left the field in 01 and opend a store selling cell phones and accessories.... was not the gold mine I had hoped for!! But a desent living to say the least. As it stands now I am getting back into the field I love and starting another Landscape Management Company!

              Welcome to our forum!

              What lessons do you feel you learned, running your cell phone business that can be applied today to your new business?

              Did you find it was easier to get this business started based on your previous experience?

                Advertising was a must in the world of cell phones I would spend 20% of my profits on ads alone, and I plan to do the same with my Landscape Management Company as well. Customer service is key I had all kinds of issues come in the door of my store, some were a quick fix some were a pain, in the end mad customers left with a smile AND THATS WHAT COUNTS! My skills in customer service are helping me everyday. I was also a fine sales rep leading my area in sales for 1 full year PROUD! I now find it easy to sell and upsell my services to pontential clients. At the end of the day business is business no matter what you do, I kinda see both of my ventures going hand and hand....funny how that is.

                  How effective is word of mouth in your area

                    Word of mouth works great around here when your established. My theory on starting out...Everyone knows a lawn company but not mine. Thats why I use ads to introduce myself and my company to potential clients. Worth every single dollar.
