      What do your flyer have on it, how do they look, do you have a starting price, what time of the day are you passing them out? I have a company that I pay $150 for full color front and back gloss postcards if I want it design they charge $225 for (5000) they can ship anywhere in the usa for about $20 more I just go an pick mine up.
      My flyers are simple, black letters, white print. I'll attach it. No prices or specials, just info. I usually make copies at staples, or even better, I have my mother print them out at her job for free.

      I like to pass them out in the middle of the day, say between 9:30 and 3:30. This way people are mostly at work so I can pass out a large quantity with little interruption.

          About Craigslist try to re list one a day so you are always update customers don't always look through the past postings.
          If you run more then 1 ad at a time or relist more then once a week. CL will start flagging, deleting, and ghosting your ads.

            You need to get a persons attention the first few seconds is all about do i read this or just toss it.
            You need a big flashy head line. but you also need to stand out from the other 20 lawn care guys out there.
            I have about 8 fliers that I rotate through out the season
            I just attached a couple as examples. I have had great results from them but it works out to 3 new customers for every 1000 fliers you put out.
            Word of mouth is the best advertizing you can do so get out there and blanket an area and keep at it till you get 4 or 5 customers and then they will sell your company for you.

              I have several different ads. They do have to be different otherwise it does happen. I only re list them when they allow me to. Not a problem yet, I hope you didn't curse me .

                hope I didnt either. Its the competition that does it. I cant run a ad with a picture for more then a day before it gets deleted.

                I was doing it the same way in the past. Then last fall I started having problems. I contacted craigslist and they told me 1 ad per week, 1 at a time.

                      Did you submit your website to google places, bing maps etc. What keywords are you using for your website? Keyword phrases are important also, such as your town and services are important.

                      mowing your city

                      include all the towns you service, plus the zipcodes, and all your services you offer in the keywords, utilize the title tag for this as well.

                      What is your website?
