Hi Rob,

Welcome to our forum!

Another thing you could consider is getting some business cards printed up. You should be able to do that for really cheap! Then hand them out to everyone you know.

You should also be able to print up some flyers on your computer and get the word out to your local neighbors. Anyone within walking distance should know they can contact you for lawn care.

Did you get a myspace page up yet for your business? I bet you have a lot of friends in school who's parents would hire you.

And you can put ads on craigslist.com for free to promote your lawn care business.

I actually just ordered some business cards from vistaprint.com!

Yea I want to make some flyers, but I want them to look professional so I want to take the job to OfficeMax or Staples or something, and I dont think that costs too much.

I have a facebook page for it, but I'm going to probably setup a myspace because you can advertise for it a lot better than on facebook.

Thanks!

lol...funny man

Apple Lawns if you are looking for a printer there is a member on the forums that can take good care of that. Jon at XcelPrinting.com.

Very professional and a heck of a lot cheaper then Staples. Staples wanted to charge me over $2000.00 to print off 5000 flyers...HA!

Shoot Jon a message and he can send you a quote.
