    Ladies and gentlemen,

    A Kick In the Grass Lawn & Landscape Maintenance

    Do you think that people will look a this name and think "unproffesionalism"?

    I have mixed thoughts about it. My wife says that's it's catchy, cute and memororable! I think the same thing, I really have fun with the name. I've had alot of comments by people (mostly women) on how cute/funyy/cool the name is, but I just feel that it's not proffesional enough and I feel that my business may be suffering for it.

    What do you guys/gals think?

    I doubt its hurting your name very much. I thought the slogan "Best Mow Jobs in Town" was pretty hilarious, but it hasn't made it off the drawing board yet. Although all my friends said they would definately advertise by wearing shirts that said that. Ha ha, I think I'll stick w/flyering!

    I think that it is catchy. A huge key in marketing is just that. Leaving the consumer something that they will remember. The "Hook" is what they remember and that draws them in.

    The only downside that I see to your name is how long it is. It will be challenging to put that on all advertisment pieces(truck lettering, biz cards, mailers, etc.).

    Very catchy though.:)

    No...I'm sure the name helps if nothing else...a lot of successful companies have catchy names.

    Defiantly should work when dealing with the masses of consumers.I'm not so sure it would work if you're target is the two per center market.But definitely a catchy name, that would stick in the consumers mind in the mass consumer market.
