That brings up another good point. Should such sales staff be given some kind of flyer or door hanger to hand out when they go door to door that includes that specific power washing offer?

Would that help them increase sales?

Could you also have some kind of special code on the flyer or coupon that the customer presents in order to get the free power washing and then the sales staff could get their commission?

Also, what if the customer wants mowing done but doesnt want to sign an annual contract? How do you handle paying the sales staff for that?

Default Yes I have flyers and then they have codes

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Yes I put codes so I know who put it out. And if they don't want a contract they won't get the free pressure washing as I offer that as a bonus for signing up but they still need to sign a agreement that says that they will stay for 3 weeks so .. Like a 30 day notice to cancel so I always win ..

Default But about 90%

About 90% will sign up for the contract so it's a great way to do that also I went to my local pizzeria and asked if they could staple one of my flyers the one with the pressure washing special to every pizza box . They said it would be ok .... That's amazing it's not a small pizza place it's a Very Very good one in my area ... So that means people with more money would go there . Meaning better customers for me . Plus I get free advertising they put out about 100 pizzas a day .. I've Been told . Will see just started today . Mabye tomorrow il go to a Chinese restaurant . I've found that the more upscale the place is the better so compare a taco shop to a organic cafè big difference . I'll keep you updated . But to let you know this is my first year and I already have 100 customers . Wow . I'm a studying to get my degree In marketing and business . As well as some graphic design . This is my first business and definitely not the last . My favorite quotation is weather you think you think you can or that you can't , you are right . Henry Ford.

Did you have to do anything for the pizzeria? I would figure if you went their every quarter and power washed something for them, you could get your marketing material in everything they send out.

You could repeat this process at other restaurants too!

Default Ya thank that would be great

If I did do like a team up with local places that would be great. What I have seen done is amazing my plan is to market my biz everywhere . Bandit signs , restaurants, stores , truck , advertising benches and even from that ... You see those benches with huge ads right ...? Well I went to an upscale golf course to see If I could put some their they said no but .. They said I could put regular benches with a little sign saying donated by accurate lawn care . Then today when I was at my library I saw these weird sculptures like bikes and bike chains all welded together to call art . So that was I my library and on it in a unmissable sign it said Donated by Anderson bike shop . That got me thinking any ideas on what I could do . Another thing I was thinking of doing I teaming up with nursery to plant one hundred trees in our city, why well we could do so thing in the news like local lawncare biz and nursery plant one hundred trees in our city if you want to donate a place for a tree call accurate lawn care . So people get free trees and other stuff .

Yea this is great too. If you could get a picture of yourself planting a tree and then give it to the paper and a short write up of what is going on, they just might print it.

Maybe you could do this for the community section, looking for volunteers or maybe donations to buy more trees. Maybe have your business number as your contact number?

You could have a certain time you will meet to plant some trees in a specific part of town and request volunteers to show up at a specific date and time.

Default Exactly

Yup exactly that then we will have a huge celebration for the One Hundredth tree like we will have a bunch of people come down to the city park .. I know the major ..... We could sponsor a cook out sort of event and that would be a great thing . But ideas are just ideas ...
