Default How to get Commercial Accounts ??

I currently do the parking lot sweeping for Best Buy. I used to do the Home Depots, Borders, and Dollar Generals. I did the mowing and parking lot sweeping for some.

Well since the sub contracting companies found me on the internet, i never really had to hunt for them.

Now i am down to 2 commercial properties and i dont think its even worth carrying the insurance.

How do i target these companies?

Thanks
Paul

Are you looking to gain more commercial lawn care customers?

There is a lot of information on here and my blog about this.

Check out this section of my blog about getting commercial lawn care customers.

Let me know if that helps.

You could do a lot of things to meet up with other local contractors if that is what your goal is. Check out the local home shows in the area. Join up with the chamber of commerce. Keep an eye out for other business owners in the area that you could hand a business card to and see if they could use your services or you theirs?

You are looking for "property maintenance companies". You can look them up online or in the phone book. Just search property maintenance company.

Default Steve I have a question about episode 27

Hey Steve on episode 27 you said you put a letter on here that we could send to commercial properties requesting to place a bid. But I can't find it
