You did this show this weekend? Wow with the weather I would have expected more traffic too.
Thanks!

Yes we had a show this weekend and it was beautiful on Saturday and POOR attendance. Rained and cold on Sunday and they all came out. Our numbers were down from last year but still very good. Overall a good success.

I would have thought the opposite...as I go out when its nice and stay in when its wet and cold. Guess people worked outside taking Christmas lights and such. Dunno but glad they came out Sunday!

I had similar results with good and bad weather. People are looking for something to do when the weather is bad. Glad you had good results second year. My second year at the same show was down. It seemed like the same people go to the show every year. I got to talk with a lot of people I signed up the year before but didn't get as much new business. I'm doing a different show this year and I think the go-ilawn idea is great. I had good luck with a sign that said, "WHAT WEEDS DO YOU HAVE". People liked looking at the poster I had and getting a name for their weed.

I agree that each year the same people may come, but we still did well. And it is really cool to see the customers we picked up last year and hear they were very happy. Bob shared some awesome feed back that customers shared with him. He said it was almost better then getting a new lawn.
We still have 2 big shows left and a local one so it will be interesting to see how it turns out.
If it doesn't turn out as good...again atleast we are keeping our name out there.
