I have made up written estimates for local businesses last year and I have been asked to drop of estimates for business that I have done residential work for (co'owners). Last year I drove around and looked at all the commercial places I wished to have business with. I can home and made them all a separate estimate sheet with a one page color flyer, paper clipped a business card and put it all in a white manilla envelope. I didn't hear back from anyone and the one that I was asked to place a bid, stayed with their current lawn service. I'm not sure if placing bids with the price of each cut was scaring them away or just the idea that they just want a bottom line of what it will cost them monthly without having to add all the cuts to get an average. I figured you guys would know more about it. Do you guys think I should drop them off this fall and mail them large postcards this winter?
