    Walk in, cold calls just make sure the bid gets to the right person and follow up. Most commercials will entertain new bids every year. I would say 80% of my commercial work has been from me looking for them rather then them looking for me.

    Word of mouth - Working with landscapers as referral people - Knowing someone that knows someone in the company in charge of mowing - Cold walk-in or make an appointment, and go prepared with pictures of properties you do, and a plan for their property (I stress the fact that when we finish, the curbs are trimmed, the lines will be straight, the angles will be random to eliminate wheel patterns, and we will treat their property as if it was our yard!!!!!)
