    I was going to ask should I hand out flyers and advertise now late in the season? Or wait until spring

    This may be a stupid question to ask but I dont know what I should do and was wanting some feed back on this.. Thanks

    I advertised last year in Mid season to start the business. I picked up 12 weekly customers off a few thousand fliers. I kept them all this year except one that wanted to pay $20 for a 1/3 acre cut. I said sorry and let them go.

    The question as I see it is are you ready to make the investment for the return you will get. I got my return almost immediately.
