I am curious to see when you approach your commercial clients about renewals for the next year, right away or? Thanks.

Right away!

From MY experience, commercial Co's have budgets and the managers in charge get paid a commission based on how much they save compared to the budget. They will often call several LCO's in the book in DEC. to get a lot of bids to hammer out the numbers. Make sure they have yours right away so you have the appearance of being prompt in EVERY aspect of servicing them.

This year all my customers will get their spring letter at the end of December. I know half won't answer until they see the ground in March but they may have a suprise. I try to plan my spring start to be better organized every year.

DO IT NOW!!

For all the reasons that Matt said plus, hopefully you just did a beutiful fall cleanup and they are very happy with your work at this time. If so, it will all be fresh in their mind when they get your paperwork.

Don't wait.....stop reading this......do it now!!
