hey Steve, Thanks...
Well i started in property management, managing rental propertys for out of state owners, but the constant phone calls and pressure made me hate it.
So, i have all these propertys that im managing, and included in my management service, i mowed lawns, removed snow, etc...
I quit the property management business and started landscaping...more laid back, you know...
Lets see...to market, i was going by word of mouth, CRAIGSLIST, door hangers, flyers sent to real estate & property management companies, the basics...
I also offer an incentive to all my existing customers, get me a new account, 1 service free, plowing or mowing.
i've noticed that word of mouth is the best results, because I make sure I do the best job i can for the customer. I actually took a $2000 loss over the summer on a job. under bidded it trying to imprerss someone who has like 45 propertys in the area, but it didnt pan out.
oh well live and learn.
i am now using your estimater calculators now, but they are a little advanced for me.
I own 2 1988 Jeep Commanche Pick-ups with meyers plows. I have almost 30 accounts, but i would like to get more, as everyone .
Any Input to get this company going better, please tell me.
Thank You Steve
