GopherHaul 26 - Lawn Care Marketing Business Forum Show is available online.




Title: GopherHaul 26 - Lawn Care Marketing Business Forum Show

Show description:

Hello and welcome to GopherHaul 26 - Lawn Care Marketing Business Forum Show

GopherHaul breaks the 1,000,000 view mark! Thank you everyone for watching us!



New 1-on-1 private lawn care business consulting forum added.

I just added a new section to the Gopher Lawn Care Business Forum. This section will fill a gap that I have seen for quite some time. I have met a few very talented businessmen and lawn care business authors who are able to assist in answering questions on the forum. However they were not able to dedicate the amount of time that they could have because of other commitments. So I asked them, if we set up a private forum area where a reader paid a subscription fee of $19.95 a month to get 1-on-1 business consulting advice, would they be able to make time to assist the forum readers? They both agreed, so lucky for us, we now have access to tap into their insights and thoughts for business advice. If you are running a lawn care business and are in need of business advice that will put you ahead of your competition by leaps and bounds all for less than the price of mowing one lawn per month, we have a great service for you. To sign up, either visit the Gopher Lawn Care Business Forum


Is It Too Late To Start Your Lawn Care Business?

One of our new forum members made a post asking if it was too late for him to start his lawn care business. We got quite a few great responses to this question and ultimately came to the conclusion that it is never too late to get started.

Question On Hiring. How Much Should I Pay?

A question was asked on the lawn care forum on how to go about hiring a new employee. How much should the lawn care business owner pay them per hour? An interesting discussion followed and James told us when he hires a new employee, he pays them $8.00 per hour no matter who they are and then after 6 months, he re-evaluates them to see if they should be promoted or fired.

Lawn Care Marketing Idea

This past month I got the chance to meet up with a new forum member Eric, who runs the company http://www.stealthdumptrucks.com He used to run a lawn care business but sold it off to explore the niche market of pickup bed dump conversions. In a post Eric shared with us some of his marketing ideas that made him so successful in his lawn care business. Eric said he used to send out letters to his customers that included some business cards wrapped in a dollar bill. In the letter he would ask his customers to please spread the word about his lawn care business services, to their friends and family. The idea really helped him expand his business.

If you would like to get involved with this discussion further, visit the post at http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/...1;&#entry39407

or here http://lawnchat.com/?p=155


New Lawn Care Business Book

I just got our latest Gopher Lawn Care Business Book “Stop Lowballing, A Lawn Care Business Owner's Guide To Success” available online. It's 122 pages packed with great information we learned over the years on the forum. You should get this book and read it to help yourself grow and succeed. To order the book visit http://www.createspace.com/3342248 or check it out on amazon.com in the next few days.

Also I am putting together the GopherHaul Lawn Care Business Show Episode Guide and I want to include as many of the forum members as possible. So please send me your photos for the book cover and a short bio I can use to promote your business.

Visit this post to learn more and see what others have sent me so far.

Another Lawn Care Marketing Idea

Matt made a post about how he created these bid cards and distributed them out around his area. He would print four cards per piece of bright yellow stock paper and on the card he was able to jot down a price to service the lawn per week. He would place these postcards in the newspaper boxes of residential homes around town.

Also Chuck shared with us an idea about how he marketed his lawn care business at his part time job's building. Chuck works at a car lube center and on the counter at the facility, Chuck placed a flyer promoting his lawn care business. He also had a bunch of business cards to allow customers to take one. It seems a lot of people did take the cards from the display. So keep in mind, if you are working a part time job besides your lawn care business, you should always be thinking how you can reach out to this group and turn them into future customers for your lawn care business.
