Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
I love the pics! I think they are great! You look like you are really having a lot of fun with it all!

I was thinking about more co-branding ideas.

Here are some for you.

Could you come up with a song that was about remembering the environment and say for instance to not use certain types of fertilizers? Could this be something you could mix in with lawn care mowing footage and then include your town name in it. Like "Let's keep YOURTOWN safe." Then maybe present it to the township as your way of trying to help improve the town. Maybe your song is about getting kids to volunteer to help pick up trash. Then you could include a chorus part in the song where a bunch of kids are all signing along "let's all pitch in." Or something like that. Then you could send the video to the local press and maybe you are called upon to play your song at times live at different township events.

Is it over the top? Yes, but this is the kind of thing that could reach out to a wide group of your potential customers.

What's your view on something like this?

Not a bad idea, Over the top...yes. I'd probably be a little cheesy or difficult to make it un-cheesy but it could work, I'll letcha know what I come up with.

LOL I know it's cheesy but cheesy reaches out to a broad spectrum and that's your lawn care customer base.

When you think about all the lawn care business owners you know or all of the lawn care businesses you have seen, what marketing that they have done ever stood out to you?

What has been wild, different or outrageous ?

How can you take all of your talents skills and everything that makes you so unique and make your lawn care business as unique?
