    Feel free to praise or bash this flyer. I have 20,000 of these that I want to get out by April 01. Then based on response and your comments I will be revising and ordering another 40,000 flyers to be distributed in April, May and June.

    I am hoping to get about 150-200 accts from the 60,000 flyers.

    I started flyering Last Saturday and have put out about 3500 flyers up to today. So far 3 calls, but we are still preseason with no rain and the cold (for us) nights are keeping the grass dormant.

    Tomorrow I should get out another 1200-1500 flyers.

    I am targeting the bottom size lots ($20). There are about 17,000 of them in my service area.


    And in the actual print, the grass doesn't look so bad. I photoshopped the weeds out. :)

    Not bad at all. I like a nice simple, clean door hanger and your's fits the bill. One question however.... If you are only targeting 17,000 potential lots why are you passing out 60,000 of these? Target only those you wish to service.

    weed eat? Do you actually eat the weeds?

    How about you use Trim instead of weed eat.

    Also you are going to Blow them off? How bout clean walks or blow walks?

    I think the pic is fine, and over all the hanger is great. Honestly I think any door hanger will work, it just has to be in their hand and ready when they are wanting the service.

    Possible changes to consider:
    1. make the "$20" MUCH LARGER and move it to the top under "Simply mowing" or under your slogan.
    2. Show the Master card and Visa logos. You can down load a few different logos from their sites.
    3. Also, highlight your web site more....I see you can't sign up on line...I would suggest this as it can be a big time saver for you

    Hope this helps!

    3,500 a day? wow, how is 5.8 per min in a 10 hour day possible? Paying a guy from Kenya or are you just chancing the post office does not prosecute for federal offense?

    It looks good, the website does too. But on the site where you mention your sister company presision, wouldnt it be good to have that a link to presision website?

    planning on multiple hits through out the year.

    I am planning on hitting each area at least twice and also each time we land a new acct, having the crew pass out +/-30 fliers to houses nearby hopefully increasing stop density.

    I have tried trim before and clients think that means hedge trimming. And line trimming means nothing to clients either. Just going with the dumbed down thing for ease of clients. Maybe good maybe bad, but they all know what it means.

    I agree with not liking "blow off" but I haven't been able to come up with something better.
