    Has anyone used LawnCareMarketing360.com to design your website? Thoughts on design process & costs?

    Beyond the domain name, let us know if you find any expertise in the lawn and landscape industry (or even legitimate mentions. the blog is pretty funny for their "lawn care" articles). They seem to be a page mill and nothing more. This is only a guess, as I took a very quick look at it, but I'm guessing they also have a similar site for plumbingmarketing360.com, electricianmarketing360.com, etc.

    Here's a sample of their templated work, which doesn't indicate much of a "design process": http://www.lawncareloveland.net/

    Just hit Google and search "LawnCareMarketing360.com" or "Powered by LawnCare Marketing 360" and you'll see a couple of live sites and lot of placeholders they seem to be sitting on.

    Here's their "expertise" for the various verticals they're targeting. Not only are they lawn care experts, they can help your dance school or tanning salon. Basically, if you're looking for someone that actually knows your industry, they're not the company for you.

    Compare the sites and copy:
    http://www.danceschoolmarketing360.com/
    http://www.LawnCareMarketing360.com/
    http://www.tanningmarketing360.com/

    Their full list of "specialties" is at the bottom of the page:

    Now that I've seen their footer, I believe we've previously discussed them in the web sub-forum.

    I am looking into marketing my business and one of the reps has been relentless about it, guarantee's growth. $560 a month they want for a basic package- included your own website, and they rank you on google and local listings. I just cant justify spending that much money for a website.

    If they're relentless and guaranteeing rank...run, don't walk, away. A good rule of thumb is that, if a web company guarantees results or a #1 rank, they're lying. Take your budget to someone else.

    I called them about 2 weeks ago. Decided to pass on them but I am still interested in getting, and keeping my current site ranked. Does anyone use a marketing agency for their site and are you getting enough work to justify the $5-600+ a month for a 6-12 month contract? If so, any recommendations on firms would be greatly appreciated.
