Posting on Facebook

OK this may be a stupid question but... what do you guys post on your business Facebook. I always sit there and think what to write but most of the time I sit there and come up with nothing.

I want to start advertising my facebook but if I cant think of anything to write why publish a facebook page lol

Funny, I saw you at 7/11 today on 109.

On Harrison? That's my dads house and rental house. August is very slow

I need to grab some of your cards, people always ask me for maintenance on installs etc

I post mostly pics too. I just look for any reason to keep reminding people that I know of what I'm doing. I've gotten some pretty good accounts from facebook. My business page only has about 51 likes, so everytime I post something on it I share it from my personal page that has hundreds of friends to make sure the most amount of people see it.

I only have 2 accounts (I had 4 but had to drop 2 due to payment issues) and the two I have only want mowing/trim/blow, so I dont want to advertise a yard that doesnt get the complete services needed to make a lawn perfect.

Sounds good.

You could use stock photos for the time being, I know I didn't start my Facebook page until I was about a year in and had enough pics to fill it out, and it's still a little sparse. I haven't gotten any work from it directly, but it helps build a pro image when they find your Facebook, website, home advisor page etc.

Post pics of landscape jobs, lawns (preferably green) you cut & most of all, your employees working.
Also could run a FREE service drawing, that will create word of mouth and LIKES.

Some of the pics I post are just of my truck / trailer... Or of some really high grass that I'm about to cut. Just anything to give me a reason to stay fresh on people's minds.
