    I was just wondering how exactly I go about making my first commercial bid? Do I just go to any business that needs lawn care, ask for whos in charge, introduce myself and ask them if the property is being bid out for the spring or what? Also what are some good formal introductions to help you get the business?

    I went and talked to two businesses today and asked them if they were both accepting bids, they told me yes and they'd like a professional form for my bid. Do I just hand them an estimation sheet with my bid on it or what? Any help is appreciated, I've been in the business working for someone else for 4 years but i'm pretty poor knowledged in this area and want to be professional.
