Call Turfco and get a booklet called Why Aerate My Lawn or go on line and print a copy. Use it as you see fit Turfco allows that or they will sell you some at print cost. They work.

Put you best sales message at the top. Logo and number to call at the bottom. Beneath the lush green grass photograph. Or use Turfco flyers. Be sure its in full color.

Always have an "exclusive feature". Like..."Available only at Mylawncare company".
"We are the first and only company to offer free...(something) with every order."

Just saw this on Ryan's website while I was looking for parts.
http://www.ryanturf.com/door-hanger-kit.aspx
I have an aeration flyer made up with information from several sources. But I like the idea of a nice door hanger in color with a name brand on it. They put all of your information on it NR the best part is that they're only $15 for 25 hangers and free shipping in the continental US!
I'm gonna give it a last ditch effort with these and see what happens

Best of luck to you, but $15.00 for 25 door hangers is extremely expensive!

Seriously? I thought that was a good deal. Can you tell that I have not done much marketing?
