Default saturated with LCO's...thoughts?

in a new marketplace flooded with lawn and landscape contractors what is your thoughts and suggestion on picking up some customers for mowing and reeling them in to choose you? there are so many in my area what do you do to make your company name stand out. Sure word of mouth is great but truely getting started with 0 customers how do you do it?

Great post to the link! How do you get registered with google? not the ppc (pay per click) but just have your business name type up when someone neters lawn care or landscaping

You need to join google places and register your business, also submit your website to the search engine

www.google.com/placesforbusiness/

http://www.google.com/submit_content.html

Then do the same for yahoo and bing

Also are you marketing yourself to people you know? Those might be your best first customers. Friends, family, neighbors, friends of friends etc.

It's a lot easier to sell to people you know than those you don't.

Make sure you have relivent keywords

Use googles keyword tool to get a bunch here:

https://adwords.google.com/o/Targeti...=KEYWORD_IDEAS

Also make sure you use the towns and zipcodes you service as keywords, also be sure to include all the services you offer.

Also, google places is on the 1st page so listing on that is a must.
