View Full Version : Getting new customers

Just wanted to see how some of you go about getting new customers (besides referrals from your clients). Do you advertise in the news paper, put out yard signs, send out letters/fliers?

What are some of the ideas that you have tried that worked, and did not work.

Has anyone gone after high end residential customers, what method worked in getting those customers?

Have signs on your truck, work in high visibility areas, in the fall aerate peoples lawns and then say you give discounts to maintenance accounts (do not give them a discount), we send out flyers in the Spring and Fall, we did not want to do it in midsummer. I have also heard of going up to a lawn where its not so good and saying I can do a better job than whoever is doing it. Next year, I am thinking about putting a sign in a yard and giving them free mowings. About 3000 cars a day pass by this house and notice it.
