Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Hi Brent,

From previous discussions on this, I think most of the members tended to keep business out of the christmas cards and not include anything that would be promoting the business.

Although you could go the opposite way and see how it goes but I don't think you need to include anything as a gift.

I have done both in the past. I did just a card thanking them for services (making sure to sign it), and a couple other times I included a $25 off card in there.

The big thing too that a lot of people over look is their supplies. Don't forget to send out holiday cards to your suppliers. They will remember it. I sent out one years ago from my entire family, and now when my wife goes in there to pick up supplies they remember her by name.

Was that for lawn service or like a gift card for a store?

What did you think about using such cards? Was it worthwhile or no?
