I would suggest targeting the people who want you to service their lawn, not just people who want their lawn serviced.

You can't compete with the piles of low-ballers out there; your target market should be the people who want the best service out there, and are willing to pay a little more for it.

Believe me, they are out there.

And YOU have the best service in Dothan.

I get most of my work from the website this year, but most was commercial and very little residential... Newspaper very little this year... Stickering the trucks and trailer not one call... Yard signs about a third here... The city is Dothan AL population is around 45-50 thousand and there are around 1000 licensed lawn care operations...

I get calls every day from organic search, even this time of year. Usually 4 or 5 calls a day in the springtime.
Thanks for the input
