    How's this? do you see any thing els that could use improvements? Do you think I should add snow cleanup or something to that affect? Or wait till winter is closer?

    Looking very good. Couple of minor tweaks to suggest.

    1. Leave out word "occupied".

    2. Leave out apostrophe (') in "offer's".

    Wishing you success

    Leave out service from "allow Fidelity Lawn Service to maintain your lawn." Drop the service at the end of that sentence. You are maintaining their lawn, not their lawn service.

    Hey Resiak,

    Now might be a good time to let customers know you do snowplowing too. I have heard many of our software users will start contacting their customers as early as May!

    Oops's, didn't mean to put 'service' at the end of that. But does it sound ok if I put maintenance at the end?

    Do you think I should leave Fidelity Lawn Service underlined or no? Oh and do you think I should add 'snow cleanup' to the list of services? Or should I wait till winter is closer? I plan to pass out more flyers around then anyways.

    Hows this?

    P.S How would you hang the flyers on peoples doors? I don't want to use tape because it could peel the paint off there door. I don't have money for door hangers so thats not an option. Nor do I have the money for magnets with my business name on them etc. It would be cool if someone sold a box of little 1/2" by 1/2" plain black magnets for cheap. I was thinking about punching a hole in the flyer and tying a string to it with a loop at the end to hang on the door. But I think that would be kind of cheesy. Any suggestions?

    No, it doesn't sound ok to put maintenance at the end. You are maintaining their lawn, not their lawn maintenance.


    As far as hanging flyers, get some door hanger bags from Lesco.

    I would try using bags that hang on the door. I got mine from http://www.rndsigns.com/door.htm They cost $24.95 per 1000, with a minimum purchase of 2000. I have not used mine for fliers, but use them to leave an estimate when the prospective client is not home. I use the one on the right. It is actually white, but from the picture it looks clear.

    bruces is right....that does not sound right. I would suggest leaving it just as "maintain you lawn". Also, I would drop the underlining.

    IMHO

    I used tape, last time. I will find out how much additional cost is going to be invloved to use the hangers, and see if that will be an option next time.

    My solution to the tape pulling off paint was to tape the flyers to the door knobs. I know it's not the most professional solution, but I think people will be more likely to look at your flyer than if it is just rolled up in the door, which is why I would rather use tape, if I don't have door hangers.

    By the way, I like your logo. How did you make that?
