What type of advertising / marketing will you do for January?

Phone calls, Letters, postcards, discount coupons?

all of the above, none of the above?

what works for your company this time of year to keep your name in front of mine?

Thanks for your reply
Tom

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
A lot of my marketing will be online... different coupons... new specials... an "Easter Egg" on my site for a HUGE discount for the first few people who find it... and the information and video on the home page will change as often as we can get time to change it... I've already gotten 3 jobs from the website so far... and it's only December... they'll be beating my door down come spring!

Then, of course, we'll beat the streets, too... flyers w/coupons attached... business cards... postcards... door hangers... etc etc etc.... I'm hoping we win the printing contest to give us a good head start! (hint, hint)... lol

...and of course we're doing the referral program... may have to re-evaluate the offer, but we're going to be doing one, nonetheless.

Will anyone be offering a yard cleanup special for Super Bowl Sunday? Or something similar to that?

Tim,

I wasn't able to get it to work. Has anyone else?

Matt you could use this code.

Code Sample

[/quote]

That should get the image to show. Let me know if it works.
