    Our Company, in just starting out, is trying to decide on different ways to advertise and exactly where to advertise our business. We are forming ideas now and are working on a door hanger and a half-page flyer. We would love to hear some of the ways you promote your business and how much you might spend on advertisements/promotions in a season. Thanks.

    I run a small classified ad in local paper each spring to pick up extra mowing customers around March and run it about a month. I average around 30-40 calls from it and pick up 6-8 good paying jobs. I also have ads in every phone book in are area both under landscaping and lawn maintnance. I get around 50% of busn. from phone book and 20% from classifieds ads and 30% from customer referals. Yellow pages can't be beat for the bang for the buck you spend.
