And the weather - if it doesn't rain, the phone is not going to ring no matter how good your advertising is.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
I spend 9 dollars a week, in the local penny saver. I have over 40 customers, make aver 4000 a month, work alone. I try to give each customer the best service Ipossible can, and make each of feel as they are the most important customer to me. (yes even the guy with the trashy yard and bad attitude) I get refferals from current customers, I get calls from my advertising, and sometimes from the cards I leave laying around. I spend 10 dollars per month on website, and have gotten calls from people who are willing to spend more money than average on work. What works for me may not work for you, my neighbors son does nothing but cold calls to businesses, and makes about 6K a month. He is one of those people that you feel like giveing your 18 yo daughter to with no thoughts that anything bad would happen, and he does great work.

WOW!!! what did your postcard look like???? If you spent 5k on mailing these postcards why didn't you hire a professional graphic designer?!?!?!

At that rate you could have called me and I would have my company set you up a website and drive thousands of visitors to your website with a decent conversion...It would definitely land you a good handful of clients every month for years to come.....

Next time, I would suggest hiring a professional before spending that kind of money.
