Do you get many lawn care mailers?

Here is one I got to show you what the latest trends are in coupons.

What's your view on these offers?

Do you have any mailers you can post?

They are not bad deals. The $99 a month actually might be ok if they can get lawns only around 4,000 sq ft. But a lot of the discounts can only be given with a contract. So they are actually covering their bases

Hi Bill,

Was it a mailer like val-pak or did you send them out yourself?

I mailed them all myself to targeted areas...I actually received 2 calls from other lcos telling me how great the cards were.lol Never thought that would happen. I was hoping for better responces, but still might get some calls, it is still early for mowing, and we have 5-6 inches of snow again!

I too have tried direct mail targeted to "new Movers" with no luck at all. I have tried this before and also have had no luck but thought that a new approach was needed. Flyer's are the only way I will advertise for new business and thanks to Chestin and his Free monthly news letter, I took his recommendation on flyer prep and moved my logo/name & phone to the bottom and wrote about a cause and solution heading at the top - my rate of calls received is just about 2% and new accounts at 95%. I'm in a flooded market of low ballers and "out of towner's" that charge a fuel surcharge to travel 10 miles - Key selling point! I'm local. Forget about local paper if theres more than 10 ads for landscapers. When's the last time you opened a phone book? I receive 1 or 2 estimate requests a week from the yahoo local search engine, all for free!

Happy Trails!
Tom

My Headline read " Are you tired of spending your weekends mowing the lawn"

followed with an all inclusive program list of weekly service for 1 low price. I also offered free core aeration w/ weekly mowing agreement.

Here is the ad in PDF format ready for business name insertion and pricing. if anybody wants the MS publisher format - please email me.
