I have only done three forms of advertising: Door Hangers before the season starts, lettered truck and trailer, and word of mouth advertising.

Obviously word of mouth takes time to start taking off, but once your name becomes more known, things will start falling into place.

I have the back window of my truck lettered with my company name and phone number. My enclosed trailer is also a rolling billboard (I've gotten more calls from that than probably anything else this year).
I'm a Stihl handheld guy, with Toro push mowers, no brand loyalty on bigger mowers. You couldn't pay me to own a Ford or Dodge.

My business provides quality lawn care, but more than that, we offer even higher customer service.
