Hi Eric,

You are welcome. I wish I had some pictures of you and I would have included you in the GopherHaul show.

What do you feel was your key to success in getting those new contracts even in mid-May? What advice do you have for others as far as this goes?

Does anyone have any mower advice for him?

i think the advice i would give anyone trying to start up in mid may is that all you need is to get your name out there and have a little patince since there arnt going to be as many people out there looking for you but their are still the people who have not realised that the lawn needs to be cut. i recomend the flyers that you have provided the one with the light switch worked the best for me i also purchesed t shirts and signs for the truck so that also helped but the biggist adivce is just to go out and do it but i wouldnt of been able to do it without this fourm and this website so thank all of you guys

I am very glad it all helped!

Next you should be considering using the clover leaf marketing technique to build out your routes more.

Check out this post and see if it helps.

Hi Eric,

Did you see my free collection of logos at top of the forum? There are a couple hundred of them and you can take them and add your text to it and bingo you are off and running.

Would that help?
