Default FREE Professional Website For New Business Owners

OK, I'm all but finished up on TheGoat's site. He was the winner of my last contest. I decided to run one more. This time making it available to those brand new to the lawn care business.

What You Get
One basic website. This site will have you basic pages. I will include a contact form and enable you to take credit cards via PayPal if you so desire. I will also provide 1 full year of maintenance on the site. (ie, any updates, changes you want made will be free of charge)

How Do I Enter?
This is very simple. You pick a number between 1-1000. I have again already private messaged Steve with my chosen number. The closest to that number will win the contest. You can only guess one number and you can't change that number. In the event two people pick the same number or two people are equidistant from the winning number, there will be another round of "number guessing" until it is narrowed down to one winner.

Who Can Enter?
This is where the contest gets a little different from the last. This time, there are a few stipulations.

1. You must have not been in business for more than 2 years.
2. You must not have a current site.
3. You must own a lawn care company and be a member of this forum.

If you meet these qualifications, you may enter. Again, if you are a lurker that meet all but the being a member of this forum, there is a "sign up" button around here somewhere.

The Fine Print
I'm going to do this a little differently this time. Since this is aimed at new people without websites, I will be setting EVERYTHING up for you. I will set an account up in your name with godaddy and purchase your desired domain name and a hosting package. I require advanced payment of this. You are to send me $10.00 via PayPal within 24 hours of winning this contest to cover these costs. From that point, a domain name will run you around $12/year and hosting is around $5/month. That is the only fees associated with this contest.



CONTEST ENDS AT 11:59 PM EST, THURSDAY 3-24-2011



I have noticed a lot of new members as the season draws nearer so I wanted to help someone new to the business. If you have any questions regarding this, you can PM me here.

Happy Guessing!

I do. As soon as things are finalized, I'll be letting everyone know where to go. This is my primary reason for doing this. I don't have a big portfolio and I want to let you guys see the work I do. I'll keep you posted.
