Door hangers

When will everyone start your doorhangers advertising around here. Weather is pretty crazy right now. I'm thinking about starting in the last week of February. What do you guys think?

I agree w/ you 100% about the pains of a "bed and bush" crew. Do you keep your "bed and bush" crew busy all season? I use my "Clark Landscape" crew on Saturdays to take care of these pruning requests. It is really just over time for my guys.

Do you run any "full service" crews?

What's your game plan for the year? Adding any crews?

My game plan is to add about 150 mow and go accounts. My only fear now is labor, as my H2B visas have been delayed by the government until after April. I will be scrambling through March on labor I am sure.
I want to know the same questions. What is yalls game plan for this year? When are you all putting out flyers? etc? Oh yeah Clark where do get those trailers made. Someone told me there was a guy here in Garland that did em but I can't remember who it was.

Thanks, Jason

Just put out 10k

I just put out 10 thousand yesterday and did not get the same day calling I expected. Might be best to wait two weeks.

Lawn Jockey,

Thanks for the update on your door hanger put out! We will be waiting 2 more weeks before our first distribution.

Last year we did 30K in the last week of Feb, and the return was poor. My best return was end of March, beginning of April....also did very well in July (HOT).

Thanks for the info!

30k WOW!

What kind of customer return do you get on 30k flyer's? How much does it cost to print 30k flyer's?

I would think 100 flyer's would get 10 phone calls.
10 phone calls would get 3 cuts
3 cuts would get 1 customer

Does that sound about right? So you could end up with possibly 300 more customers this season @ $30.00 per cut x 33 cuts = $990.00 x 30 customers = $29,700.

Kevin
