9 aerate jobs,1 fert app, and 1 weely mow for a saturday good?

Like a lot of guys here I am new to the bus. this year and went out door to door this last saturday doing some aerating. It was only me, and one other guy going door to door to introduce myself and my company and I think it went well. If nobody answered I left a flyer and if they answered the door I tried selling my services as best I could. There is a HUGE aerating company that does yards for $30 in this area, and I charged the same rate. I got 9 jobs and passed out about 250 flyers of which I havent gotten any calls from yet (but it snowed on 4" Sunday). I also picked up one possibly two weekly customers and had one guy insisted on me fertilizing also ($35) and paid my help $70. I think it went ok for my first door to door outing, what do you guys think?
