  • Schedule Question

    Does anyone have a standard schedule that they use for new customers. For instance: January (mow every other week, blow, ?). February (????), March (????), April (mow every week, ?), May (????) so on and so forth.

    that way, a customer can see what they're getting for their money.

    thanks,

    I would think a lot of that would depend on the area you are in and the weather conditions.

    Recently our friend Chuck, in Fl, was saying he runs (30, 35, 40 week mowing season).

    Another member said this is how many cuts they offer per month

    Jan=1
    Feb=0
    March=2
    April=4
    May=4
    June=4
    July=4
    Aug=4
    Sept=4
    Oct=4
    Nov=3
    Dec=2

        If I get 20 cuts a summer, I'm laughing, the most cuts I had last summer was 18 and it was a wet one this year.

        For Canadians, your probably looking at this kind of schedule

        May - 4
        June - 4
        July - 3
        August - 2
        September -2
        October (leaves)
        November (leaves, that if it doesn't start snowing)
        December (snow, depends on the winter)

                      Have you had customers tell you they chose you because of your personal approach to reaching out to new customers?

                      Do you have any favorite business books that you have read that you can recommend?

                            This really brings up a great point. What is 'making it?' What does it mead to have made it?
