Default Flyer Design

Hey everyone

Im looking to design a new flyer

im planning on making it a door flyer so it saves some money on paper

black and white

to the point

last time i had the price box and i got a huge response on those..but i want to pass out alot..fast..so i think ill skip that

does anyone have any design that really stuck out and worked for them?

Im thinking about putting we will beat any competitors price and quality.


any suggestions?
and yes ive been through the templates a gazillion times..
i just want some personal opinions
maybe a flyer you used and it got alot of response

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
I went really simple this year and just scanned my business card and transferred it to a half sheet of paper. I used color paper with black ink.Pretty cheap 2 flyers 1 sheet of paper. Most office stores will let you borrow the board to cut them after they are printed. I also put out some door hangers, same design concept, but added a box and gave and estimate on the spot. Did this on a couple of condos where all the properties are basically the same. Door hangers got a little better response but they were also more time consuming.

I actually got better response this year than any other year about 3%.

my door flyers had the estimate box and i got a huge response

but i was thinking i might get a bigger one if i put

well beat the competitors quality and price

or

cuts start at 20$

i might go back to the rough estimate on the flyer though..


i was also thinking of a we fix mismanaged lawns flyer since we dont use heavy machinery yet..

I used the price box too. I think that works the best. I usually based it on the neighborhood I was in, and put the same price on almost every one of the flyers. (All the lawns were approx. the same size) I'm going to be handing out more flyers in the next week as well, due to school finally getting out.

Have you considered marketing to the neighbors of your current customers with the flyer that says 'sorry about the noise'? That might help you fill in your route better and help you make more profit per stop.

I personally would never say that I will beat or even match someone elses price, you could be setting a trap for yourself. Also, customers who are willing to swap to a new company in order to spare a few bucks cares nothing about their lawn, they just want the weeds knocked back from time to time.
How are you ever going to showcase the quality of your work with this type of customer base? Do quality work for a price that is fair to both you and the homeowner and people will begin to notice.
