    Man, the referal program i have been pushing for 2 years is really starting to pan out. I have been bidding higher than ever and have not lost a single bid yet. It feals amazing. I attribute it mainly to my marketing pieces though. If you sell profesionalism, you can demand professional rates. :)

    I'm just north of Akron and have had a great response with the flyers. I just got back into mowing after a four year break. Had to buy all new equipment to boot.

    Anyway, I hit three nicer neighborhoods with flyers three times each. The first round was at the beginning of March. Anyone who signed with me prior to April 1st got a free cut. I also give a free cut to anyone who referred me to someone else which results in a contract.

    I passed out 600 flyers total which resulted in approximately 25 calls for estimates. Of the 25 estimates I landed contracts for 12, which was my target for the year. I have had to turn down close to 15 accounts since then so I don't get overloaded!

    Wow!!!! Great Response. I'm working in the Fall, Stow and Hudson. I can say my flier have not done so well. But I'm still working it. What area are you working???
