    Do you guys think it is a good idea to put out flyers saying something like ..."Sign up now for next season and get a free lawn mowing" or something like that

    I would still be advertsing for fall services at this point. However, you could be prospecting for new lawn customers for next year at the same time. We are still picking up new customers for the 2007 season. Most people at this point will want to wait until next season anyway.

    So if I start advertising for the 2007 season and offer a good deal you think I can start acquiring new business? I am thinking about sending out 10,000 very professional looking postcards offering a good deal on next years services along with a pre pay discount if paid by the first of the year. Do you think 50 or 100 new accounts is possible from this?

    So what do you think is a feasible number for this kind of advertising? In early march I am going to be sending out 20,000 or 30,000 more postcards. What kind of numbers do you think I can expect?

    Im fairly new also but isnt 20,000 - 30,000 postcards going to be fairly expensive, postage is .39 cents already (im pretty sure). That seems costly, also i was wondering if some of the vets can post some example flyers of lawn mowing, and their fall flyer. All responses to this is greatly appreciated.

    Actually postage is 21cents per postcard when you do mass mailings like this. There may even be cheaper rates. I am just curious what kind of results advertising to this degree will bring.
