Do you send them to targeted demographics, or just everyone?

I offered $15 off one fertilization. I also offered 1 free mow when you sign up with us. I sent out 1750, spent 700 bucks, and 1 day later have had 1 call from a guy that acted like 20/week to mow was outrageous. I sure hope things pick up. I don't want to have wasted hundreds of dollars.

estimatI have found that going door to door with a hand writen estimate on a nice card works best. It takes a lot longer but its the only thing i have found works.
