    Great looking rig! But your gonna wanna hand out more than 150 flyers! Ive got a friend that said he just got in 3 thousand flyers!

    And make sure you sell door to door, not mailbox since your handing out so little flyers!

    ya thats my next goal is lettering and parking it in a much viewed area. As far as the flyers they were 70.00 for 150 at the printing place up here I went through them cause I want the flyers to look professional.

    Not wild about the flyer,...it needs some work...I DO like the truck and trailer, though?

    Get that rig badged! That will look so good, like a rolling billboard.

    I'm not crazy about the flier either. It is OK, but not powerful enough to grab people's attention and get them to call.

    I would consider putting some type of coupon on it. A coupon dramatically increases our ROI on ads we have run. People will hold on to those coupons.

    you guys should see the flyers I am competing with up here literally I see flyers that say like jose's landscaping and underneath it is a black and white picture of a ******* lawn mower so im not really worried about the flyer what im worried about is all the other well established landscaping maintenance companies up here, theres only like three but they have alot of yards and ive worked for all of them and dont have the balls to try and steal customers from them. But yeah im going to tag the trailer as soon as I can. Thanks for your replie's.
