If you haven't thought about it yet, Valentine's Day is coming up.

I know the traditional gifts are Roses and Chocolates for girlfriends and wives.

Lots of guys also buy presents for their Moms. *Instead of buying *$100 worth of flowers that will die within a week, tell your customers to pay you $100 for a flower bed "VALENTINE'S DAY - SPRUCE UP SPECIAL"

For $100 you can drop by the Mom's (certain girlfriends and wives love this too) house, blow leaves out of her flower beds, trim shrubs, pull weeds, and add a bag or two of fresh mulch.

As an added touch, hand her a Valentine's Day card saying the service is compliments of her son....and don't forget your business card.

This is a great service to offer around Valentine's Day and Mother's Day.

If anyone takes advantage of this idea, let me know how it works for you.

Steve, any chance for a flyer design for this advertising idea?

Keith

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Hi Keith,

That is a great idea! Should this include any type of flowers at all? Either in pots or planted? Or is it too early for that?

I did make a flyer a while back about Valentine's day. Maybe it could be altered?



Here is the link.

Do you have a graphic program? You should be able to download it and alter it.

What are you gonna change? I can't wait to see what you do!

It is amazing on the marketing tactics in the States...here in Canada you don't see anything like that. ie, Valentines Day, free pizza with contract, tax return, etc...
