I can say that I have not had any calls or refferals due to the door magnets.
When you are out there working on lawns, do you use the clover leaf marketing technique?

This could help you land more accounts right nearby.

Did anyone else start out my way (push mower, using personal lawn equipment) then purchase other equipment. If so was there a difference in volume due to that?
I would venture to guess 90% of the forum members on here started this way.

I think the difference in volume comes is due to a small network. The more people you know and the more people that know you are running a lawn care business, the better your chances are of gaining more business.

Take our one friend on here Andy. He drives around with premade postcards for different services he offers. If he sees a home that needs such a service, he takes a postcard and goes over to talk to the homeowner.

That is just one step you can do. There are many many proactive steps you can do to attract more customers.

I think it's important to not focus on having all this equipment to show off to those driving by. It would be better to see yourself as running for mayor now. You want everyone you can meet to know you are in business and things will pick up.

What other things are you considering doing to get the word out more now?
