    the 1-800-lawn-cuts is a vanity # you pay them to use in certain zip codes that you pay for each month.they help with marketing and get post cards and etc. @ a lower rate. i will meet with them on wed. just seeing if guys on here have thought to use them or what?

    How much does it cost? I've heard they can range from $200-$300/Month per Zip Code?

    I talked to the rep for a long time. In my opinion, they do not properly utilize their vanity number.

    Their main plan is to make you go out a put up a bunch of door hangers. When putting up door hangers it doesn't matter if you have a 1800 number or not.

    I think that it is pretty much a scam because after you put out all that advertising you still have to pay for their stupid phone number to get the calls. For instance if you publish a yellow pages ad with that phone number you won't get any calls if you ever don't feel like paying $100-250 per month..

    $110/month, that's not too bad, how many zip codes does this include? I've talked to the guy in my town that has the 1-800-LAWNCARE #, and he says it cost him a lot more that $110, just curious?

    Rule of thumb for me would be that if I have never heard of that number, chances are customers around here probably havent either.
