Default FB Marketing

Try this -

Ask one of your full service clients if they would host an afternoon luncheon as a way to introduce some new people to what you do and so they can see your handiwork firsthand. Grill hot dogs and make potato salad. Comp the host's service for 2 weeks for letting you have a 1 hour picnic. It's a chance to educate prospective clients and make your current one feel like a superstar.

Post this as a Facebook event and spread the word until 50 or so people sign up. If you are good at confirming the Facebook RSVPs, you will have 20-25 perspective clients happily munching away on a Saturday afternoon while you tell them all about the great work you're doing for the host.

Using Facebook, this will work if you live in a fairly metro area.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
I know we haven't had much input lately on using facebook to promote your lawn care business, but does anyone have any insights to share from experimenting with it this year to gain more customers?

Any pros or cons in their experiences?

I have a Facebook page and presence because one, it's FREE and two, everyone is on Facebook. It gives you credibility in my opinion. I gained my first three customers on Facebook.

I list my link on my business cards. I keep my page updated constantly with information helpful to my customers or potential customers and also have a Paypal link posted so my customers can pay that way if they choose to do so.

I haven't found a cheap business web provider yet and I've had a website before with another business that sucked more money than it provided so until I get to the point that my business can afford me a website I will continually seek free advertising i.e. Craigslist, Facebook, Google, etc.

Great service and word of mouth is the best advertising.

We have a Facebook page that gets used all the time. Even though the count is low, I added over a dozen regular customers by having the page and advertising in local groups for my area. I also use Craiglist. In my area, I am the 4th largest mowing service and have never had an ad in the newspaper or on the radio. My clientele comes mostly thrugh an online presence and word of mouth. Do a good job and your customers will refer you to their friends. It really does work

Thats a great idea...I have also thought about:

Having a Christmas party and inviting clients..a drop in kind of thing

Having a BBQ/watch football.....

Renting a box at the minor league baseball stadium


This would give an opportunity to talk to clients more since they usually are not home when I am there (many of them I have never met).

Tell them about other services you offer

Some how you could tell them to bring a few guests.


This would be awesome if you invite other business owners of different companies (realtors, business owners with physical locations who need lawn management companies... and you could invite them to invite other business owners)....networking networking networking
