    Nothing wrong with "starting at" or "bulk product" prices. I agree it helps cut down on tire kickers. Provided they know how to read and comphrehend.:usflag:

    I tried that for mine this year. I thought that would filter out price shoppers but it seemed to do the opposite. Once I trashed the page, calls dropped like a rock.

    I appreciate the feedback. I've just done quite a few of these type of proposals this year- the kind where you're really not giving a set project price and getting into specific details/plants/material pricing. More "general" proposals... that still take some time to write up. More for longer-term maintenance stuff that people say, "Mowing, maintenance, an occasional project, maybe some mulching, blah blah blah..." Non-specific stuff from higher-end clients. People who, if you went over on materials and a bit on labor, would be fine anyways.

    So that's maybe where i'm going with this. Referring to pricing online.

    OR- maybe I should just type up a separate "pricing/proposal" sheet that I can use for this type of situation! Then I can e-mail it out and not have the info totally public... better idea?

    Obviously people will fill out forms because service magic gets them to do it all the time.

    I am truly interested in how this works out for you either way you go
