I sent out 32k the other day and my phone has been going crazy all day. I want it to keep ringing we have a few smaller towns around and would like to target those as well. What would be the best time to send more you think? I have another 48k 11.5*8 sized cards with 8 different offers. The majority of people are calling for power raking and spring aeration which is fine. But I want fert app accounts. So far so good. I sold 6.5k worth of sales today which is decent for me, I havent sold that much since I worked for another national lawn company.

If I'm not mistaken, it has been extremely warm in Sioux Falls as compared to here in the Twin Cities metro, correct? We're struggling to get out of the 40s
How much did 80k postcards cost to have design, printed, & bundled? Care to share what they look like, possibly via a PM?

When you have systems, you have control.

Wow, sounds like around $20k to print and mail. Just guessing at .25 each.

Thats a healthy ad budget. Do you answer phone and estimate by yourself or you have help?

I ordered 5k cards yesterday of the new design bob made for me. I also opted to have them bundled. That way i can send them out as soon as they come in. I have 2500 of my design i made going out on Mon.
