    Ok this might sound like a 10 yearold thing to do, but has anyone ever gone door to door to do leaves. I went to a town next to mine and did this. Made some great money.May do it in the spring.I did this knowing that mon is a leaf pickup day. Just blow to the curb and go.

    Hi Chefdrp,

    Great idea and good for you. It's a great impulse buy.

    This is an insightful quote from Lawnsite user Clay.

    1) Get Attention... Headline is worth up to 90% of the ad...

    2) Show an advantage... Fix their problem...

    3) Prove it.... Why you?

    4) Entice them to grab your offer... 100% guaranteed....

    5) Ask for action... Act now and receive bonus... wait and lose out."

    By going door to door, you are taking care of all these marketing rules. It's no wonder you found success!

    This door to door effort in the heat of the moment really pays off. Around here there are construction guys that will take a neighborhood after a snowfall and start scooping at one end of the street and by the end of the day they'll have the whole neighborhood done and they've made more money than me running around town to get all my clients done.
    Hmmm... makes me think, does'nt it!
    Good Luck
