So this past week I have lost 2 clients. It's a lot to me considering I only now have 12 weekly accounts to do. Not anywhere close to how many I am trying to get. I know to learn from my mistakes but I'm not sure what I did wrong here. The first account I was scheduled to now Saturday. Which is what me and the owner agreed on. So I show up Saturday around 6:00. I had other lawns and did not get to it til then. Pull up to it and it had already been cut. Pissed me off a little. I knock on the door and she said I thought you weren't coming. I showed up on time and lost the job. They went back to their neighbor cutting it. Not sure why, didn't ask, didn't care. Hated mowing their property anyways. 2nd one. Called him today asking if I'm good to mow for him tomorrow since rain is in the forecast for Thursday and Friday. He came to me last year and said he liked how I did his neighbors lawn. Which is why I ended up with the job. So I asked about tomorrow and he said they went with someone else for mowing. Makes no sense to me unless they are doing it cheaper than I was. I was for $25, and I'm not sure how you could do it cheaper and make good profit. I can't say I really did anything wrong in either situation. Maybe they didn't like a more professional job than the neighborhood kid. Oh well. Time to move on. One reason I can think of the the 2nd guy didn't like my job because I used a big commercial mower and maybe he prefered a push mower look. I really don't know. Chances are someone bid him lower than me. Person #1 probably feels more comfortable with his neighbor than a person he has talked to only 4 times.
