Timing is huge with direct mail and door hangers. I wait until all the snow is gone and then I keep an eye on the weather. When I see 3-4 days of 50 degree+ days in a row coming up I start. Of corse its different in southern states where 50 is still cold.

are you talking post cards to existing customers to touch base before you start the new year or sending them to non customers to get more business?

I do two separate sets of door hangers! One right around now while there's still snow on the ground for people who like to be prepared in advance and another in end if April early may for people who waited and are now rushing to get there lawn services in place!

thats a good idea...ive had most my customers for many years so they know im coming as soon as i can. i was looking into expanding this year though this is a great way to drum up business. i currently do 10 lawns right in a nice residential neighborhood and would love to pick up more. it saves so much time and money being able to just drive the mower to the next lawn. can you reccomend me somewhere to go to have these made?
