You can pick up new accounts any time through the season. When it gets hot out like in july or august, people will start when calling when part-time lco doesn't show up in the heat.

Hang in there! If your work is good, you should have no trouble finding somemore accounts.

i have to agree with everyone else. i picked up 2 new ones yesterday, one hadn't seen their other guy in weeks, just stopped coming. the other was a neighbor of one of my current customers. i got a question..how well do flyers really help out? (not trying to ask a stupid question). all of my current yards are referrals, i've never advertised, except by word of mouth, and have thought a lot about advertising.

what's the best way to advertise this time of year? I need to find roughly 15 jobs and am having no success passing out flyers door to door. Anything I'm missing? I can't exactly mail thousands of letters or anything like that, though.

I'm interested what kind of flyers you have, not all flyers are created equal.
