Default Introduction

Hey everyone,

I just though I would introduce myself. My name is Tim Oezer from Racine, Wisconsin. I am the owner of Belle City Lawn Care, LLC. I worked 2 years at the age of 16-17 for a friend of mine doing snow removal and lawn care. Last winter I decided to branch off and make my own business. I started last winter and here in Wisconsin we barely saw any snow. Even without the snow I did very good in my first year of lawns. I advertise in the paper, adwords, craigslist, facebook, door to door knocking, door hangers, mailings, and of course talking to friends. I am now going on the age of 19 and I am excited to do lawns full time this summer. I am also working on getting my horticulture associates degree. Any tips would be helpful!

Thanks!
Tim Oezer

Study your plants.
Know what you are talking about. i am sure you do.

and make sure you keep advertising. even if you think you don't need to because it is winter keep doing it.
you got an okay website, but you really need to look into seo.
so that you get found online.

krzys666,

I have continued to advertise all winter. I have picked up about 20 accounts this winter already. As for the website it has been my project this winter and I actually updated it a few hours ago. Now that my website is beginning to look professional I am beginning the SEO process. Thanks for the advice!

LawnBoy0311,

Well this fall I picked up about 30 accounts for snow removal. A decent amount but not too many. After mailing out coupons with my spring specials on them to the 30 snow removal customers with the bill for December and January I turned the 30 snow removal accounts into 20 new lawn care accounts. Not to mention all the door hangers I have waiting to go out in a couple weeks and paper ads. You just can never stop advertising for the season you are in as well as the next season.

Thanks,
Tim Oezer

Welcome to our forum!

I checked out your website and you could do more with your title to improve your SEO.

Instead of using HOME as your title, why not include Racine Wisconsin Lawn Care Services along with the different zip codes you service. There is more you can do but this is a start. Read up more in the SEO section of the forum to see what else you can do to improve it.
