Tell me what you think of my upcoming years advertising plan. Put out 2000 flyers with pictures and a hand written price by me. This isn't just your basic flyer with time new roman font and basic design. The design is meant to capture someones attention and finish a sale by giving special offers. I have run it by many people both in the green industry and even my College Marketing Professor (great free opinion and expertise). I can estimate by just looking at the front of the house and seeing into the back very closely what it will cost to mow. I have done this before and never had a problem. I figure people will like to see a price right in front of them and if they are interested they will call me. I'm expecting a 2% return on these flyers as they have pictures to document past work (showing I'm not just a lawn boy) and a price (so they don't need to make excuses that lawn care is too expensive for them) There will also be specials on the flyer to help drive the sale. Continue my word of mouth advertising which has gotten me about half of my business. Advertise free on Craigslist and set a limit how far I will go. I have extended myself too far before and don't want to do that. 7 miles from the shop should be good. This has worked well for me and surprisingly two of my best accounts have come from it. Anyone serious about helping or wanting to borrow the idea pm me or say on the thread you want me to pm it to you.
