Alright, rough draft is made up, I emailed it on over to my brother to put it all together.

Heres the breakdown, it has a cover sheet which has the company logo and number. Then 2 pages that describes the business and it's advantages, next page has copies of fert certification, business license, proof of insurance. Then a thank you page, basicly thanking them for taking the time to read it and to keep us in mind when they're looking for bids. I'm going to have a few pictures scattered in the first page and maybe one or two in the thank you page just to help fill it out and show off alittle.

Question though. Do you feel that there is enough there? Theres a total of 5 pages there, and these will be in the clear plastic binder type deals. I don't want to have too much content and cause them to lose interest, but at the same time I want to have enough to really convince them that we're the company to be with.

The first thing I thought of when I read this is that it would look really nice on a tri-fold brochure.

Have you ever thought of that?

It's just something to think about but it might be easier to read in such a manner versus 5 pages in a plastic binder.

What's your view on that?

I've thought of that too. I would have to skim it back to fit on a tri fold brochure. It would probably be cheaper too. What if I just go tri fold as a "feeler"? Put them out and see if I get any response from property managers as to when their accepting bids and then go back in with the larger more detailed binder? That could possibly work.

Yea that sounds like a good idea. I bet it would look really good. You have plenty of information to put in it as well!

The brochure could help sell your services and could be included in a cover letter sent to local property managers in your area to break the ice for a visit from you or your brother.
