any time now is ok but, if you can catch the week right after the first nice weekend is always the best that i've found. when it is cold out, people won't think about lawn service. the first nice weekend, people get out, aliitle yard work, maybe wash the car and enjoy being outside. then they know spring is in the air. then the mailer shows up.

I ordered around 5000 postcards last fall and started to send them out in mid January. I have a buddy in real estate and he got me all the addresses for Mission Hills and about 15 subdivisions out south (Leawood OP) that I send them to twice a month and will continue to do so till about late May. Ive already started to receive calls and emails for spring cleanups and gutters which Im starting this week. I also send them to the 400 addresses in my database for people that I have done work for in the past.

We also use door hangers. I use the 10 house rule when doing this. Ill start a house and my guy will go up and down 10 houses on either side and across the street. Then he will come back and help me finish up.

One of my customers in KCK had a really nice asphalt driveway put in. I could give them a call and see who did the work for them.
