    "Call for details."
    How many lawns a day do you have to do to make a profit with this business plan?
    I called and he gives one free mowing per month but would have to look at the lawn to see what the payed mows would cost.*trucewhiteflag*:hammerhead:

    so he charges 40$ for a lawn he would normally charge 30$ and if they bite he has the same money so where's the { free } come in at? It probably will work for alittle until people catch on that others would charge 30 for the same lawn.

    For the customer, nothing is free in business. You either pay for it up front, or pay for it in the end. If this is who you are competing against, not to worry as the low ballers always go away.

    Something for free makes no sense at all. But Madison Avenue and the gob'mint have pitched the idea so many times for so long that people will believe it.

    We have the same idiot here doing 1 free app and 1 free mowing. It's the same guy that has been bankrupt 2 times.
