Yeah, I made up a really great flyer. But that is really the slow road to growth-but unfortunately, it is needed the first few years.
I think you should personally leave them at the doors WITH a price per visit. THAT is what alotta people really want to know. Plus it keeps you from having to backtrack to quote prices. Just make sure you say everything you want them to know on it.
And get to droppin' them. These big LCO's that have telemarketing divisions will be blanketing the area soon. Make sure they have yours first. Good luck.

Flyers for lawn care

We use flyers to attract new customers. I would be interested to see what kind of response others are getting by using this advertising method. ex. maybe so many per hundred or thousand and if someone could tell me what kind of cost are involve in the print and distrubution.

It seems to me that it would be costly to go door to door.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

My cost is 2.5 cents per flyer. I used white paper,green ink.
Going door to door is free, that is, you don't spend $$$ to do it. You only lose time where you could be making $$$. But in the late winter, most of us have extra time. I had about a 1% result which is normal IF you do not follow up. This year I am going to pre-qualify leads by calling certain areas asking if they will be interested in a price quote. This should raise the sales results to 20-30%. Most people are lazy about lawncare, and will even keep a Co. even if they are priced high or results are questionable. But if YOU call THEM and give them a good reason to switch, the odds are pretty good they will.
