Hi Chestin,

When you have a moment, could you introduce yourself to our readers and let us know something about the services your company offers at http://www.lawncaremarketingmagic.com ? How would a lawn care operator benefit from them?

Thanks!

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
First of all, I appreciate the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with everyone. I've been a small business consultant for 6+ years now and have worked with all kinds of businesses ranging from software sales, e-commerce retailers, manufacturing, lawn care, and landscaping just to name a few. In working with these businesses, my passion has always been marketing simply because it's something every business needs, but very few know how to do it effectively.

What I've found is that unfortunately, a large majority of small businesses fall victim to either 'throw mud up against the wall marketing' or 'flavor of the month' marketing, or both. 'Throw mud up against the wall marketing' is when they just try out a bunch of stuff hoping something works. However, what usually ends up happening is they end up wasting a lot of time and money with few positive results to show for it.

'Flavor of the month' marketing is when you get caught up in the latest fad or worse yet, you spend money with whichever advertising rep happens to get in front of you that month. Unfortunately, this haphazard approach rarely produces the results that are possible.

My goal is to provide LCO's with the education, tools, and resources that will help them develop a solid plan for marketing and growing their business. As a small business owner, you need every marketing dollar spent today to come back tomorrow in the form of profit and my goal is to give you the knowledge and resources to make that happen.

I'm currently providing one-on-one consulting, but am also working on several turn-key marketing packages that will walk you through every step of creating effective marketing plans, marketing campaigns, and other tools to grow your business by leaps and bounds. I expect the first of many of these turn-key packages to be available at the end of this month (11/05).

I also provide web site development for LCO's. These sites are based on proven direct response marketing principles and are guaranteed to grow your business.

Periodically I will be posting ideas, suggestions, and comments to help you better market your business. However, please feel free to contact me directly with any specific questions you might have at:
chestin@lawncaremarketingmagic.com.

Again, I appreciate the opportunity to participate in this forum and I look forward to interacting with everyone here!

I am really looking forward to hearing more about your turn-key marketing packages. Will these include actual template examples the LCO can edit and use?
