Hi Frontier-Lawn,

Do you need us to help you with any flyer or door hanger designs?

Mowboy do you have any suggestions of what you have found to work for you?

Hi Frontier-Lawn,

We will have to find out why you can't attach a file. Have you looked through the logos in our gallery and could we use any of them to base a new logo for you?

Hi Frontier Lawn,

While the Gopher Team helps you with your flyers, have you thought about your marketing strategy?

You mentioned some zip codes in your original post but as you are just starting to build up a customer base I think we would be best to focus in a lot more. So we need specific neighborhoods, streets or smaller areas that we can target our flyer/doorhanger marketing campaign on. These areas do not have to be the nicest areas of town and in fact you are probably better to start in a more middle or upper-middle class area. Keep in mind as well that it may be difficult to get a maintenance agreement from people right away. They want to get to know you first so you may end up doing, perhaps a clean-up or some other service. Once they see what a great job you do they are more inclined to give you more substantial jobs... like the weekly maintenance of the lawn and garden.

So, what I would like you to do is this:

Select at least three specific neighborhoods, streets or smaller areas that are nearby and answer the following questions for each:

1) Approx how many houses in this area?

2) Why do you like the area? Why does it appeal to you? (i.e. The competition is lousy or lots of seniors who need help... you get the idea)

3) What are the demographics of the zip code in which the neighborhood is located (Team Gopher listed the demographics of 3 zip codes for you in a previous post... if the ones you need are not there you can check yourself by following the link to the census site which is in that same post).

Like this:

Area One
There are approx ??*houses.
I like this area because:
The demographics of this area are:

... same for other two.

Take a drive around and post back when you have select some neighborhoods to target. See you then!

If you had other thoughts or questions about your marketing campaign, please let me know.
