Smile Hello from vermillion SD

Hello!I just joind this forum looking for some new advice. I'm 15 and I've been pulling my mower behind me since I was 10. Of course now I upgraded to a riding mower, 2 push mowers, 2 string trimmers, and a blower. I have much to learn still and hoping that I can learn most of that from this site

That is part of the reason why i joined. I am lookinf for some different ways to get more accounts. Recently i have been putting out door flyers on some doors around the neighborhoods that i mow. I live in a college town with about 12,000 people in it. There are 4 or 5 other lawn care services in our town and i want to stick out from all the others. For the past couple years i havent been improving much and im hoping that will change this season.

Do you ask for referrals from your current customer base? Do you market to the neighbors of your customers? If you have a client base of happy customers, they should really be able to help you reach out and get more customers.

What other ways are you feeling that you stand out?
