    Brand recognition and advertising is the only way to do it. Sure word of mouth works but you'll be working for years and years.

    Look at tru green, brickman, valley crest, etc. Lawn doctor is always advertising as well

    I'm pretty much starting fresh in a new market area. It is 45mins from where I currently live. (I own property in this area & plan to build/move in the next two years).

    Word of mouth works great if people know you exist. I take pride in my work and the branding/marketing of my business. I've slacked off on the attention to detail and my business has shown it. I let my trailer go to crap and some of my equipment.

    I gave myself a $5500 spring marketing budget and this is allowing me to wrap my enclosed trailer, graphics on both my trucks, 10k postcards & 5k door hangers.

    We have been asked to bid on 5x HOAs so far in this area. It shows that having the proper licenses & insurance do make a difference.

    No paint. Just water sealed.

    Having graphics on your trucks & trailers is called building a brand. You cannot rely on "word of mouth" to build an ever constant growing business.
