    Well I waited and waited to do my first advertising ever, hung 500 door hangers in specific areas that I picked based on home values, my mowing route from last year and just location. Hoping I didn't drop the ball on this because tonight we are suppose to get 3-5" of snow with another 1-3" to follow Tuesday! Wish me luck haha but at the end of the day today will more then pay for itself if I just get 1 new client out of it so I won't complain!

    Took me by myself 4.5 hrs, about half were pretty close to each other then the other half the lawns are bigger so more distance between houses, I will tell you what my legs are sore as hell today haha

    Hey did you get any more calls? I'm real curious re: response percentage for this kind of advertising.
