Default Halloween marketing idea

I was raking some leaves earlier in a big pile, here's the proof


Anyways, I had a brain fart, while your bagging these leaves into garbage bags and since Halloween is coming soon, why not buy some halloween bags and sell them at 10$ (i think it's resonable since you raked them) and sell them to people so they can put in their yard for decoration

I like the idea of using those bags. It would be awesome if you could get them printed with your lawn care business information on them too.

Or how about this.

Take the bag side of the halloween pumpkin leaf bag



Then make a stencil with leaf cleanup and your phone number



Then spray it with black paint and you got a great way to advertise.



Use one of these bags when you are bagging leafs to get the word out about your business.

You could even take this idea one step further and put up an inflatable halloween display on your property and maybe at the home of your family or friends in town too to help promote your services further.

Use a stencil on the inflatable display


It would make for a great evening display.

All I can say is nice, I am so sorry I could not talk to you on the BB using messenger, I had a big one on and the wind here this evening is nuts.

I LOVE the image and in marketing, try it and see what happens, have you done anything with the mulch er?

Your capital outlay should be small, great idea so why not, who knows the people buying these bags could be potential clients.

Justin,

Does that shred the leaves at all? It looks like it does a fantastic job. I wonder what is the best way to maximize time and also maximize the amount of space it takes to dispose of the leaves.
