So can you offer a free lawn analysis and estimate...and...if the prospect drops his name on a card into the bin--you have a drawing for a free lawn service for the year--to one lucky prospect. (limit value of $500. )
Can you give away a free gardening calender? Free rain gauge with your name on it? Free mole chasing propeller? Grass seed? Gladiola bulb...all these with a prospects name and address usually (Or at least stop to talk for a few minutes). Free small bag of grass seed if prospect can stop and identify 5 weeds--real and in flower pots, (photos if necessary). Its all about trading a freebie for permission to give them an estimate.
