I like to use a direct approach especially in the evenings to get new clients. I give a simple introduction and tell them about my services. Most people right now turn down my offer to mow their lawns but ask can I areate and do flower beds? I have a few nice flower bed jobs lined up. Yes I can areate. Just got my areator today. I read on this board information about being having a license to put down seed, chemicals and fertilizer. I will get my license soon do that soon. I want to advertise to areate only. How do I convince a homeowner that I will areate only? Winter is near and I want to make my money before it gets too cold. I would appreciate your comments.
