i'm in northwest jersey and for the 1st time, really feeling the "pinch". been doing this (lawn/estate maintenance) for a bunch of years now and have always counted on happy and/or satified customers, word of mouth and fliers if need be. so far this season i lost a few "problem" customers (good riddens) and unfortunately have picked up NO new ones. i got my (800) fliers out over the last few weeks and haven't received one call... i double checked the contact info just to make sure a mistake wasn't made! are you all pulling in work, or is this "lull" a byproduct of the overall economy? i'm in an area which is quite affluent and didn't think my business would be affected too greatly however some friends, in other fields, said it's "rough" for them too, right now. how are you all doing and what's selling well and/or not, in your neck of the woods?
