Flyers? Whats givin you the best response?

I wanted to know any tricks that will give me the best response with my flyers. I know before I have put an approx price for average size yards and targeted specific neighborhoods and got a fair response. This year I am thinking of adding a coupon or two for some kind of service with signing of new mowing service. What are your thoughts?

Flyers are NOT the best bang for the buck. true you get to target your area but your only reaching ONE customer per. flyer.
the return rate is around 2 to 3 % with those being call backs, and about 2 to 3 % of those being a sgin up.

of corse you may get a diffrent result. it seems that diffrent types of advertising works for diffrent areas.

Best of luck

Flyers are cheap and work superbly for me IF IT'S THE RIGHT TIME OF YEAR.

Spring Clean up flyers are killer for me, I always get more work then I can do (people are impatient) I literally cannot put out more then 10k because I would just be wasting money.

But flyers for lawn mowing, in the middle of summer get me nothing. So for me, we have 4 seasons up north here, spring is the time for lawn flyers.

Thats what I did year one and it worked extremely well. In the past I've just done some plain jane flyers and haven't have had nowhere near the luck. This year I am goin a lil more flamboyant hopin to catch more attention.
