The pennysaver should work for you.

Do you cut or are you only into landscape work?

This will get your phone ringing off the hook. You have to sort out the pitas though.

Advertise in the Pennysaver.


Grass Cutting Average cut $30/shrub trimming/mulch jobs/spring and fall clean-ups. Free estimates 724-555-5555

Keep it simple, it works. Of course the $30 price is a way to get them to call.

When they call, ask them if they have an average lawn or above. The majority always say above average. You now know that it is at least a $35 cut. Go and do the estimate and give them a estimate on the size of the lawn.

You will be getting a lot of call next week due to all the rain and the time of year.

First, newbies are hanging the business up right now and with all this rain, other newbies are backed up - leaving a window of opportunity for you to gain customers.

Make sure you leave a number you can be reached at when the phone rings.

Also, get your ad in by Friday and your ad will be in the paper next Wednesday.

I've been advertising in the pennysaver for weeks .

This is my current ad:
COMPLETE LANSCAPING/ MAINTENANCE Yard cleanup, edge and mulch beds, hedge trimming, grass cutting, 15 years experience...blah blah blah.


one call a week.

What I need is more work, not how to advertise. Thanks for your help. I've read many of your posts and repesct you. But I need the jobs. So you have any?


No offense to you , just flustered

I just showed you how to get them. The problem with your ad is that it's just like the other 50 in the Pennysaver. You need to be different, catch the customers eye.
Believe me about this marketing - It's what I do best.
