    Tim, have you used quantummail.com? 45 cents a post card, printed in color both sides, stamped, mailed, including the list fee. 1,000 cards = $450 on streets you pick using google maps or using demographics per zipcode.

    I can't remember if you used it, but guys here recommend it and a Remax guy I met swears by it. I'm placing my order this weekend.

    I wonder if this results in him getting business. If so I'm gonna take my 450 lawnsite posts and make a website. Hooray ! :)

    Pete, Mike G. writes his own articles. He doesn't post his lawnsite threads.

    Making use of local, regional and web based business directories can be an easy and effective means by which to gather and distribute postive informatin about your business. They provide your clients with an easy to access portal for inquiring about you and reffering you to others and some directories offer space for client's to post comments and ratings.

    Once you have a history of comments gathered on a directory page, you can include the link to that site on all your communications with your prospects.

    Simple, free, and it works.

    Have a great day.

    I am re-vamping(?) my website soon. I have always used my website as a center of information. I have looked into alot of different vehicles to get my message across but everything I do directs them to the website. As Pete said, you can change it daily if you want to. The feedback I get is that the clients love the pictures. If you are hitting the right client, they don't want to be educated, they just want the best person. (I think Pete said that too, lol) I suggest just keeping it simple. I do not use brochures due to the cost. I use 2 sided full color business cards with a pic of a job on the back. That has done the most for me. I use card decks, magazines, nicely lettered trucks, etc.

    Oh yes, as for the digital photo books, I am a distrubutor for them. If you would like free software to make the books, just let me know. I was looking for a solution for my presentation and loved these. I give one to each customer as a thank you and they leave it on the coffee table for a long time. It probably has the best shelf life of anything I have tried and it sets you apart as a professional.

    Paul has a nice CD rom he gives people. Also I gotta agree with James... Your clients wont care about voltage drop unless they have a system they are unhappy with. We have all seen it... Unburied wires... daisy chained 50w lamps... overloaded... multiple transformers chained together ect.

    On my last proposal I had 3 phases on a total of 4 pages. I consulted with james... he read it... he was right it was wordy... I rewrote it and cut it in half. Had all the information the client needed. They read it... they signed it. Issued a deposit and asked a few questions. Dont get to technical with it. It might be overwhelming. Your clients want a system that will perform... be reliable and be serviced. If they want to know more about the technical aspects they will ask.
