Default I might be wrong...

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Service where “Your lawn is my business,” we take care of everything for you.


should be "Service where “Your lawn is our business,” we take care of everything for you."


Cut outs block the text behind them...

You have 10% off, but what's "up to $100.00 off?"

All customers get 5% off


should be "Prepaying customers receive 5% off"



I would also try to center your contact information.



Maybe, "spend time with the family"


Also think about if those are the only services you would like to offer, once the flyers out, it's embarrassing (for me anyways) to send an updated one out later.

Why not "Fall Cleanups" / "Leaf Removal"

It's similar to lawn maintenance, & you can rake in a lot of dough!

Hedge/Shrub trimming $$$$

I realize you put, "and many more" though it's hard to decide what the potential customers would like to see on the flyer.




PERSONAL TIP:

Instead of putting your company name in BOLD

Just try changing the font size by +1 it will look really neat & pro!

Welcome to our forum!

Can you resave it and post it as a doc file instead of a docx file? So I can see it? Thanks!

I love flyer talk!

It seems as if we can never get it perfect. It's the only part of business I wish I didn't have to deal with, but it's there.

Great thing you don't need a translator, I had to find 4 people to translate English to French on my flyer, it took up a lot of space but overall it didn't make it worse.

Though apparently the grammar still isn't perfect, you'd think 4 french people would know how to do it, but they all gave me different forms of writing... So I gave up & printed the one that sounded the most correct.

Breeze2009, Thank you for the input, I will change it as soon as i get a chance. The only reason its "Your lawn is my business" is,because that's what I put on my business cards, so when I run out of them I will consider changing it over.

Steve, I changed the file over for you. Also I am currently listening to all your videos and podcast. They have great information.

Default flyer tip

Calvin,

Keep in mind that color sells. We are drawn to look at color ads over black and white ones.
Also, if you put some customer testimonials on there from people who are happy with your work.

Good luck.

Welcome to the forum Calvin.

Good ideas there Breeze.

Its a fine line on how much detail you should put on a flyer or any material you are putting out to customers or potential customers.

I like how you set exp. dates for your specials, lets them know ok here it is, grab it now before i get busy.

Good luck on those and let us know how it goes.

Ugh, is it just happening to me? When I look at both flyers, all the elements are piled on top of each other at the top of the flyer.

Actually that might help in making the interaction seem more personable. My vs. Our. When you use the word MY, it seems like the owner really cares about my lawn. Not this nebulous 'Our' group.
