It is a form of franchising. People call the # and you get all work in your market. Only one person per market can have the #. I don't think it is worth it just for a phone #. I don't think most people are going to call a toll free # to get local service. I would take the money and buy a big enclosed trailer and letter it up so nice that you will get noticed no matter what your phone # is.

They do offer the best software in the industry though.

Rodfather, www.realgreen.com offers the 1-800 # thingy. I know you have heard of Lawn & Pest Assistant software.

I am a member of the 1-800-LAWNCARE. We singed up in Sept. We have not seen any great benefits "Yet" I believe we will see an increase in new business this spring. They have allot of marketing material at a very low price. The quality is excellent. I am a little disappointed in their web site they provide. Their customer support is excellent. If you have any questions please feel free to PM or e-mail me.

What kind of numbers are we talking about being a member btw? Are there different levels, degree of involvement, the need to buy only their marketing tools, etc.? Are there any "guarantees" too?

Cost vary. Depends on the market you are in. I am in a small market therefore I was able to expand my coverage area and keep the cost down. You are not required to purchase material from them but it is to your advantage to do so. Cost of materials are very low and quality is excellent. You are required to put logos and phone numbers on your trucks, again it benefits you. Yes, there is a guarantee but you will have to contact Real Green for the details. Call Brian @ 1-800-422-7478.
