Good for you for taking the time to get it made up. I'm just starting and need to make flyers.

Here's a few things I would change:

Contact Person, change to Contact:

that way instead of saying who the contact person it, it's sort of telling them what to do, a call to action.

Typo, services starts should be services start

Might want to put contact info at the bottom.

I'm sorry but all I can think about is SS Nazis' when I look at your business name. Those flyers aren't the best either, I would lose the clipart.

thanks!
I just did it real quick on ms publisher. and the clip art on ms paint. Maybe thats why they are not the best looking. I just wanted something simple. But your suggestion is much better than mine. And about the pricing, is 40 dlls to high to start or should I start at $25 like you suggested?

You can charge whatever you want. Just put your prices start low. If your prices start at $40. people are going to think their lawn is going to cost $60.

I hope you do well in your business but I would definatly get some flyers made by a pro. It will pay off in the end. I had mine designed for $75 and there are super great.

Lose the flier. Get a professional to do it. Putting a starting price of 40.00 is too high. 25.00 is more in line.

Not trying to be hard on you, but just giving you my advice directly. I truly wish you good luck.

I do think that professionals can do a better job however i also made my own flyers Also using publisher and imo honest criticism i think you can make them look a little nicer then that. maybe make it more eye catching?


i edited out my name and address etc etc but here is a look at what i did.

i am not saying mine is perfect but i think a little more effort can help you improve it. like find a lawn mower pic online or something etc etc.


THIS IS ONLY MY OPINION ! take it or leave it you choice. Mine i know can be better probably too but i think publisher is cabable of more then what you did you.

Please PLEASE understand i'm just starting myself and in no way knocking you down but just trying to help and offer advice.
