CRAIGSLIST!!! This site has got me a whole bunch of new customers. But, theres a trick to it. Make the title of your ad catchy. Thats the BIG thing! Everyone posts subjects as: XXXX Lawn Service, Click here for lawn care, just take a look what people are using in your area and use something different. I used one as simple as "Summer is here!!!" and got a few emails. Different is better. Be funny with it too! In your ad, make it work for you. Tell the customers about your services offered, and put in your service area. Add in there some contact info and you'll be all set! After 2 days, log into your account and go to the ad's you have posted. Click on "renew" and your ad will start at the top of the list. Good luck!
Craigslist... you may as well give him a gun and tell him to go kill himself. Craigslist has lots of potential clientele.. they are just all cheap POS

Steve,

I put out a total of 15 around at local restaurants and such. Like I said I got the calls but after I performed my service they never called back and I expected a few but guess people are a lot cheaper than I thought. Lesson Learned I suppose. I also got 4 contracted clients from it but they insisted on paying me. Where I live lawn care if very competitive cause everyone with a mower thinks they can do it so I just want to gain and edge on the so called "common guy". Cause I know what i'm doing due to experience of cutting at my college the past 3 years. I just lack the budget at the moment.

Thanks

Keep marketing through your social networks. Have your friends and family hand out business cards from you as well. Talk to your neighbors and give them cards too. You don't need money to market. If you have time to do it, you will be all set.
