Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
That is a very good question. It depends on a bunch of things.

But ultimately you want to start out with business cards and get them out to everyone you know. Friends, family, neighbors. Then you want to get flyers out into your area.

If you have a couple of bucks, get your truck and trailer lettered.

Then put a small ad in the local newspaper.

Experiment with putting ads in craigslist too.

Make sure everyone you know, knows you are in business.

Hows that so far? What are some of your marketing plans?
