Quick Advertising Tip Discovered by chance

After finishing one of my customers today in a residential neighborhood, I drove up a different street getting back to the main road before heading back to the house. This street was 2 streets over from the one I normally use.

As I was headed up the street, a lady stopped to ask me about my lawn care prices, and asked for an estimate because she saw my sign on the side of my trailer.

After finishing the estimate, it got me to thinking. Its wise to alter your route a bit from time to time, and work your way up and down different residential areas on the way to your next client, or headed back to the house, or headed to the store. Even if she hadnt flagged me down, people will see the sign on the side of your truck or trailer and maybe call, or refer your number to someone else that may call.

Im not saying you need to drive up and down every street, just change it up a bit each time so you are getting some visiblity on different streets in the neighborhoods.

So the quick tip is....alter your route a bit from time to time, to pick up new customers that seeing you out there.
