Website is layed out nice. I would probably take out the "we are a new company" part. Just my opinion. Also, have some one spell check. Refferal is spelled referral. I suck at spelling but I noticed that cause I used to spell it wrong too. LOL Good luck.

If you want a pretty easy free drag and drop website you can try
http://www.weebly.com/ they also have paid upgrades ofcourse.

Vistaprints has easy set up sites and

hostgator is professional and has good customer service, they will show you how to do a drag and drop type site but it's a bit of a learning curve.

Most drag and drop sites and hosting is as low as $10 a month.

Yeah i made it all my self. Took me a while to figure it all out. i host with yahoo its like $12.00 a month with email accounts. I don't like there pre made websites so they have a few options. you can use Adobe Dreamweaver or they have a program called Yahoo Site Solutions and you basically build from a white box. I would recommend yahoo for doing a cheap website. I tired Godaddy.com and i did not like it at all. customer support sucks & can't do much to the pre made websites.

Hello!

I saw your craiglist flyer you posted. I actually like it. I made up something similar today. link: https://post.craigslist.org/manage/2795626937

I think if it looks to professional/over done it could be a turn down to some folks. They might feel that you will charge them a lot unlike the guy who has a smaller business down the road. I know that communicating with your accounts makes a big impact if they will hire you on again. When i worked for a large landscaping business doing maintenance they never talked to the home owners. Some of them don't like to be bothered.

Do you have a business plan? If so i was wondering if i could look at it to see how it is written. I want to be ready if i get enough accounts this year i can get a loan quickly. I should have one regardless.
