    i trying to get new accounts and i have been advertising like on a web page and also doing door hangers and placing them in subdivisions. i'm planning to put ads in newsletter and also the newspaper. does anyone think of a better idea? was also wondering does advertising for lawn services have a better feed back in the spring than in the summer?

    Yes, because by now most people have selected their lawn service already for the year.

    Hit them in late February this winter.

    Just grass, having similar problem but I am still hoping to line up some aeration/overseed jobs for the fall and a couple of mow customers this year. I'll be going wide open come Feb with the flyers.

    I still am picking up some every other week or so. I leave a card at every house that has not been cut when I go by (if it is worth it). try that . especially since some of the others are not showing up like they should and are slacking a little on there behalf. good luck

    It's possible to pick up new clients just about anytime. Now, there're are some that may be unhappy with their current LCO, some finally decide it's just way too hat for them to mow, people are always moving in and out.
    Keep passing your ads out, do quality work, you'll get more customers.

    Put ad in the Thrifty Nickel as well as the paper and newsletters.
