Thumbs up New

Hello I am new to the forum. I am 34 I have just started my lawn care biz about 2 months ago. I am doing this part time. So far biz is good, I made a great flyer and clients call all most everyday to sign up. I have about 40 clients so. I live in Maryland I do lawncare and light landscaping.

Welcome to our forum!

WOW you are doing awesome! 40 customers in two months? Can you give us a little advice how you did that? was it all flyers or did you do other things as well?

Sure I made it in color half a sheet. The one thing that clients like is that I put
an on the spot quote on it, this way clients know my price before they call. I can upload it when I get back in town. People also so call because of word of mouth. I hope to get 60 total clients before the end of the summer. My accounts are 70% townhomes 25% single family, 5% commerical. I am going to do a website this month.

How do you land the townhomes? Are they handled individually or do you do this through a home owner's association?

Do you have any advice to others as far as how to land town house accounts?
