My first flyer

My 1st attempt at a flyer. This will be my 1st season trying to get into the industry. Any honest constructive criticism is greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking!

The part where you said you'll beat any written quote, what if the quote came from someone who didn't know how to bid correctly. You will get screwed.

Thats really just lip service to make it sound more appealing. If that really was the case I would just have to turn away the business.

Remove that. Makes you sound desperate. Not everybody is looking for the lowest price in town and you do not want to be mowing for the lowest in town either my friend.

No seasonal contracts required. Just make sure they pay you up front for a month or 50% down on larger jobs. I learned the hard way about not having contracts. I do now and will always.

Presentation is good though.

You might want to increase the font about 4 pts. Just play with it until you think its easier to read. The bold areas should be a bit bigger that the rest of the copy. Enlarge those areas. Get rid of your name. You want to market your company not you.

hey i have ben on here with my flyer for about a week. learned a lot of great stuff from the members here. your flyer is easy to read but i would increse your font size it looks nice and neat but for a older or someone looking at it fast it may be hard to read. i had several replys indicateing that you have 3 seconds to grab your customers attention to read on. i was advised to move my logo to the bottem with my contact info. i havent tryed this yet i still have old flyers to had out. but will try on my next flyer printing.

one sugjestion i have to make from personal experiance. i droped 300 flyers out over the last 2 weeks. weather was still a little cold out her in nj. not 1 call. droped 90 flyers on sunday. monday was the warmest day so far this year in nj. 3 calls from flyers and 3 jobs booked also got 2 calls from a craigs list add. today ranny and chilly not one call. seems if you hand out flyers the day befor a nice sunny warm day you get better resuts i will be testing this theary and will get back to you

I would suggest your put the logo of the company at the bottom of the page. Customers don't care who you are, they need to see something catchy at firs, otherwise your fliers will be in the trash.
