Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Hi Arlo,

Welcome to our forum! I saw the post that you were an F-15 Mechanic. Have you named your business yet? Did you tie in your military work at all in the business name?

Do you have any pictures from your time in the military you could share with us? How was the experience?

Thanks for the kind words, I was hashing around the idea to call my business either "Eagle Landscaping" or "Eagle Keeper Landscaping" I have loads of pics I will try and find one and share.

I'd love to see some of the pictures!

I like those names too. You could tie it all together. Promoting your business and showing you have all these years of military service. It would make you stand out.

Just to brainstorm a bit, maybe you could have your door hanger say something like 'for 30 years I helped defend our country and now I want to help defend your lawn against weeds and disease.' Or something like that.

Well challanges for me this year will be getting my name out to the masses since I am the on the block. There are lots and lots of sub divisions in my area so I really think that if I can get into some of the neighborhoods I have a good chance of my name getting to folks. Like other areas in the country there seem to be alot of competition so I need to make sure I market my area and do my homework so I can be successful. *I have attached a picture of the first mailer/door hanger can you all give me some feedback.

Thanks

Oh! Yes I like that! I especially liked the part that says "Reliable and Trustworthy Air Force Veteran."
Very creative.

Do you want to make it into a postcard or flyer size? How do you plan on printing them out by the way? Will you be doing it on your computer or using a printer?
