    2.5% return is pretty good for just flyers, distribute more of them.

    You might try to talk to some of your neghibors if you see them out mowing, also try to get a good reputation, word of mouth is one of the best advertisments. I'm in your same situation though, 13, 14 in 11 days, and I am looking for more accounts.
