Okay...I am ready to get going here in colorado...limited budget for my first round of advertising. I want to get some clients for Winterizing their systems. This is between 3 weeks and 5 weeks away from happening due to our weather...maybe a bit longer, neverthe less...I need a plan. Here is what I thought I'd do. Call all the landscape maintenance companies in the phone book and however else I can get their number and tell them who I am. In Arizona, we specialize in working for the landscape maintenance companies. 70% of our clients came to us through their landscaper. I would like the same to be true in Colorado...but I am new here so I need to pound the phones? I was considering buying a mailing list in the areas that I am interested. I drove those areas yesterday....gates and long walks between homes really prevent any sort of door hanger work. I am considering publishing a 'COLORADO' version of my quarterly newsletter and mailing it to this list. Will be better than some stupid flyer I suppose. Most bang for your buck? remember, the door hangers are not going to work well. Phone calls are free?
