I have ad's running in the Warren and Sterling Heights local papers, plus we frequently pass out door hangers when work slows. I have gotten a pretty good response from our website too. Have been getting about 2-3 leads per week average from there. The advertising seems to be getting a good response overall, and plenty of calls, just not many intested in cutting it seems. I'm enjoying selling the higher margin services, but think Im pretty much at the end of Aerating and Dethatching season.
I've signed 3 new mowing accounts this week already though, so like I said things seem to be slowly picking up. As I expressed awhile back, alot of estimates I gave early in the season where just up against rediculously low rates that I couldnt even compete with. I was getting calls, just not signing anybody up. Now it seems alot of the super-cheaps are filled up and have withdrew their ads from the papers.
