I am back home again. Just pouring over here in Richardson. We did 4 yards and that was pretty much in the rain. Forget it.

I managed to get in a full day in Flower Mound today... I had my fingers crossed the whole time. I'm still behind by 7 lawns though.

I also find that leaning on clients to spit out some referrals this time of year is also pretty good. You get the people who havent been pleased this season with their current company and are looking for excuses to swap companies. A friend referral is typically all they need.

I wasn't sure if you were referring to having the time to door hang in general or your thought was our Door Hanger Stick-It would take longer than the typical hole and slit style. In case it was the reference to our hanger itself, I thought you may want to see this post we found on another forum where one of our customers was telling other Window Cleaning companies about his success with our Stick-It style Door Hanger.


HERE IS THE POST:
Stick It Doorhangers Tip

I recently found and ordered 5k of their stick it door hangers and they are awesome, cuts your time down easily by half when going around door to door putting out either fliers or door hangers etc

I love them, ordering 20k more soon they stick to pretty much anything no more bending down for us old farts just stick them onto a glass door or next to their driveway and they aren't going anywhere!! I have the door hangers and you simply peel off a small piece of paper on the back of them and stick them any place. Has save me a ton of bending and opening storm doors to place fliers.

watch the video on their website its www.adeasprinting.com i highly recommend you give them a try.

.....

tip 2

If you get one of those annoying snobs when doing door hangers saying you can't leave fliers in the area, just peel one of these babies back and stick it to their forehead and walk on. ha ha

tip 3

run like hell

That's cool. I hope the design company isn't charging you a ton for the design work. I did my website and my logo design myself but I'm considering hiring a company to provide me with an updated and finalized logo to start using in the offseason.

Well, the logo company is charging about $600, but that includes my logo that can be trademarked, buisness cards, a couple other stationary products with logo on it, like 3 logos to choose from or use for different things, 3 page website with all the important features, 24/7 web support and a few other perks. I am looking for a logo that can be trademarked and is original. Not to bad compared to some of the other logo design companies. Also, I saw some of there previous web page designs...very professional.
