How do you intend to get these clients? Hoping and planning are two very different things.

Develop some assumptions for your fertilizing business plans. Be reasonable in your assumptions. If you think a tech can do 8 home an hour, your very wrong. But 2 or 3 per hour is fair. How many square feet per hour/day is that? Work those numbers into your business plan and the associated spread sheets and run with it. If it turns out your assumptions are wrong, you will either go too many or not enough responses to your marketing. If thats the case, rework your plan and try again until you have enough data to understand the relationships within your business plan and spreadsheets.
If this post seems mean, it's probably because I'm drunk posting. Maybe my next one will be better...
