Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
I just joined this site and havent explored many post however one I see a lot is Travis's post .

Travis you asked for an opinion on your web site

-I think its great that you have a web site . ( I dont have one ... YET)

-I think you should check your spelling ( cant beileive Im saying that )

-Your prices are to low . Think about it.
Most people pay $5 for gas for thier mower.
Other guys ,who are trying to support thier kids ,
can not even phathom cutting a lawn for so little.
If your prices where more I think you may get more
lawns to cut as people would think your serious

- About your experience.
When you show up at someones house to do an estimate the first thing they will notice is your age .
I think people will have more respect for you if you let them know you are young and very ambitious

you been working on that for two weeks? WOW, i guess school did not help you much.

you never tell people in your ad what you wont do or to hire someone else.

i take it you are either trying to punk us as suggested earlier or you are like 12 years old which by itself you have no business marketing yourself for hire.
at that age you would be a insurance and liability nightmare and anyone who hires someone under age 18 for landscape work is a fool.

most states have minimum working ages and require working papers as well as have age restrictions on certain trades, my state does.
the days of hiring the kid down the street are coming to a end due to these laws as well as there has been some instances where a minor got hurt and the home owners insurance would not pay because the laws state that you can not hire a minor.
what happens when little jimmy from down the street sues your a$$.

Can you please tell us what I made up ? Also ,when you ask for suggestions and opinions ,why would you be offended when they are offered and genuine ?I stand by my earlier post ,and I am certain I am not the only one who feels I spoke the truth and gave you proper advice .

So how do you read the domain name?

Webs or We BS?

There is also something known as truth in advertising, look it up.

You are not of age where you can enter into a contract with someone else. You are 12 and you still have a lot of growing and learning to do. Take this time to learn how to properly run a business. Based on your pricing, you have a lot to learn.

Lastly wTF does Autisim have to do with anything? Sounds like more of an excuse than anything else. Throw down that crutch and learn to walk without it. If you have autism you will always have it but it doesn not mean that you can not overcome it, you just have to work harder than most.

Travis,

No one here is trying to be a jerk to you. We have all tried to help you and have given you advice when you asked for it. However every time we do try to help you and you donr like the answer and you get very confrontational. This I think we could all put up with.

Its the fact you've lied some many times about your age, your company, and countless other things. The part that bothers me the most is that on your website your stating you have 12 years of experiance. If you just turned 12, how is that possible? Im 19 and I only have 5 years of experiance. This is the reason we do not take you seriously. I hope your parents see what you have been posting on here because in all honesty it could get them in trouble as well. If someone hires you, and you break something or worse kill some one, its on them since your under 18.

You need to take all of what we are telling you and put it to use if you want to be successful in this industry.

I highly doubt you will take any of this seriously but It needed to be said.

When I was 12 years old, I knew nothing at all compared to what kids know today.

I have to say that I am impressed with what you are doing, and I can see that you are learning the ropes pretty fast, being only 12/13 years old.

Everyone here starts out the same, we all make mistakes; only few people will admit to their mistakes or present their flaws to thousands of people on a forum. The fact that you are presenting a situation like this one, means you are helping out quite a lot of people, in the exact same situation, who are too nervous about writing on a forum to seek help.

-

I personally go out of my way to write about every aspect of my troubles. I may come off as a downer, but I am in fact creating a pool of solutions that people will later be able to find. No thread here is pointless.

-

As for your website, I am looking at it now and will do my best to assist you on making it better.
