Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Well I stopped him one day and asked if he would be interested in me cutting his grass, so we got along to talking when he says to me to leave business cards in my mailbox and he'l distribute them for me. I think is cause I'm only 14 so he felt like helping me out.

No shipping was 4.99, and I noticed that before it said 50% off then it said 20% off.

I distributed over 4000 business cards with small magnets on each. So far, the return is very disappointing. I was hoping for the average 1% (40 customers), but have only picked up 5 or 6. I have picked up a few one-off jobs but not very many.

I put out around 3000 last November for the fall cleanups, but no takers. I should have been able to double my clients to 70-80 total.

Coupled with the 3 months of ads in two city newsletters with total distribution of 15,000 copies each time, I was less than impressed.

Thank you Obama for coming to my rescue.....NOT!
