Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
There's some great templates for flyers and door hanger on here, which is a great way to start.

Do you have a website? I get a lot of customers from our website along with Google AdWords, which positions us at the top of people's Google searches, when they search for certain keywords we select.

I have a bunch of free web templates. You can download them and get your site up and running.

Have you used any of the free flyer templates yet? Why not download one and edit it for your use and then hand them out to neighbors in your area. You have to let everyone know you are in business. Especially everyone in your immediate area.

Have you tried craigslist.org yet? You can post an ad in there for free. Are you telling all of your friends to tell their parents and neighbors that you are running a lawn care business?

Hi Dave,

Do you mean you advertise on Google? What do you suggest other lawn care business owners do to make the most out of this? What kind of key words should they look into buying?
