How Did you guys get your contracts?.

I'm just starting out in the landscaping business. I'm very new, like VERY NEW.

I'm like 1/10 NEW on the scale of being new.

I've been reading more and more of landscaping www sites, features, articles.

I'm curious as to how did you guys get your contracts at 1st?

I will be handing out flyers in Jan' to people's mailslots and put it through the mail slots. When I see people standing outside, I will approach them with my flyer and say could I interest you in our services!

So, my main question is how does a newbie get basic contracts? I'll be doing; hedge trimming, basic garden maintenance, lawn care, and water gardens (after some schooling.)

Lol, I've been reading through the posts..

You guys answered most of it, lol..



Would you guys do a combo of handing out flyers and door hangers in the same resident? or would it be a waste?

How fast do you want to grow? how big are you starting? How much equipment do you have? Take all that into mind when doing alot of handouts and all. you dont want to be doing est. all the time and having to rush to get you jobs in. If I was you I wouldnt do doorhangers and flyers its a bit much. Good luck with it and remember dont over extend yourself
