new to the business

I have been mowing residential lawns in my neighborhood for 5-6 years now, and am looking to get some commercial accounts this season. I am looking for any advice/ dos and donts/ anything that will help me with this. Until now I have been doing 20 lawns to make some extra money, but would like to do this full time. I'd greatly appreciate any help. Thanks.

call around and ask if they are accepting bids and if they will send you a bid sheet of what they want done. or you could just visit the places you desire cutting and ask to speak to whos in charge. goodluck.
