Kurt,

Here is the basic idea. You are selling YOU. Your personalized service. The goal is this will make you stand out from competitors. It is especially important now as you are trying to bring in more customers. You are building your name and reputation.

You can see why I need a bigger picture from you. Otherwise it is way to small. I scaled this image down to show you here but you would need the larger image if you were going to have this printed.

On the back you could show the services you offer and other information on how you will personally make sure the customer is satisfied etc. We can come up with more ideas for that.

I just wanted to hear what you thought and what others thought too about the basic concept of it. We can change the image or whatever.

'Don't leave your lawn care to chance....
leave it to Kurt Chance.......'

It promotes you as the brand. Personalized service.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Looks good so far! I like the little saying too! I was watching a racing dvd last week and there's a company "Neal Chance converters" and their saying is "You don't have a chance, unless you have a Chance" and I wanted to come up with something like that. I think you got it!

I'll get the bigger pictures tomorrow and I can send you a large picture of my company logo in color too for the bottom.

This doorhanger has me excited, pretty soon is when people start to see they aren't satisfied with their current service or are deciding they'd rather have a company do it, so this will really help touch base with a personalized effect I think.

Thanks again!!!

Great!

I totally want to see you grow this year and maybe this will help.

Maybe on the back we can point out why a homeowner should switch to you. Or point out why you are better.

I think going the personalized way will really make you stand out from the pack.

I would personally have a head shot instead of the picture of him by the mower.

Good idea, maybe you can do that too Kurt?

I really like the thumbs up. I think it promotes confidence. That you can do the job.

Troy what else would you put on it?

Well, I would put the head shot to the left and right beside it have it say something like "I guarantee quality work"

what about a shot from like chest up? This way I can get the thumbs up in there and have more then just my head.

On the back maybe do a little business profile like TG said. Describing how kdc is a locally owned business, our main goal's are customer service and quality work, how i'm also insured and state certified to apply fertilizer (I think adding credentials is a good thing, it pushs the fact that I'm experienced and that in a way shows quality, at least I think).

I still want to do a price quote at the bottom, this way people can cut the bottom off and it would be like a business card on the front and on the back would be the price quote.

I'll send you the pictures later on today along with the logo. My website address is www.kdclawncare.com if you wanted to toss that in somewhere down below too.

Yea try a couple of different things with the photos and we can experiment. I am looking forwards to seeing what you come up with.

I think the picture worked out great. Perfect size.

Here is a design. Let me know your thoughts.
