Default Best Way to Market

The best way of marketing for a business owner in this field is by the word of mouth from a current customer to their friends and family or even neighbors. I have tried it all and by far the difference is going out of your way here and there for your current customers, hit those couple weeds in the bed that look horrible with the weed whacker as your going by, hit the weeds growing in the cracks of the walks, it makes a difference( weedwhacking can make or break a company, i have had 4 new customers which are all neighbors of current customers who switched to my service because of the difference in trimming). Another thing i do for my current customers is provide them with professional looking flyers on nice thick paper with it clearly stating all the services that i offer, It also says in big letters, FREE ESTIMATES. The agreement between me and my customers is every full maintenance customer that they refer to me equals a month of mowing half off, so if its $30 a cut i would normally get $120 but instead i get $60, hey i break even on there lawn for the month with all my over head but in the long run it is worth it. The catch that i throw in is that you dont get your month half off until they have received service for a month themselves, so i also make money off them before i have to reward them for the referal. I have learned that you have to use your current customers for links to get more work, and the only way to do that is talk to them for a min or 2 here and there, find out where they work? who provides them service? Ask them if they have any family members that receive service from another company? It doesnt hurt to ask
