Default systems and fathers

thanks for the feedback everybody.

My father has played a big role in the creation of this company. I have worked with him alot and have inherited his buisness like mind. Such as protection, contracts, not loosing your behind, kind of stuff. And not only did i do property managing for him, i also did all his estimating and project managing. So i have learned systems are really important to any buisness. And it helps the stress level too, keeps it fun. I would not be where i am today with out my father, very fortunate and lucky. He is going to have a good fathers day.
Happy fathers day to all the fathers in the forum as well.

Matt

That's a very nice card! How many do you feel you hand out per day or week? What other kinds of things have you been doing to market your business?

I designed them myself. I just used vistaprint.com to make them. Your card holder idea is not a bad one. I pass out cards a every other day on the average. My letter head is done and I'm mailing them to property management business along with 2 cards. I cannot upload them here, they did not work. Not sure why so here is what they say (below) however it's best to see the whole thing to see how it all comes together.
Everything matches. I really do not want homeowners,been there done that. However if push comes to shove I'll take them and move on later.

It does not copy and paste, email me and I'll send it. bigguyslandscape@att.net

I just started to advertise thru ATT Yellow pages on the Internet. Still working on the ad but had to go for it. Cost $102 a month. Plus like I said before, my focus is on commercial apartments etc. So my letter head that introduces the company is short and to the point. Email me and I'll try to send an attachment.

Are you doing anything to track that ad to see if it is working? When new people call do you ask them where they initially heard of you from?

The ad is not up yet, but I will ask where they heard of me. It will me on the major search engines thru AT&T. It will be in my surrounding area within 75 miles. That way I choose how far to go depending on the job. I'm also considering a co-op, but one step at a time.
