    Just wanted to know if anyone in the southern areas started running there flyers yet? I put an ad in the paper 3 weeks ago ran about 300 doorhangers, and not one call yet. What do you guys think?:walking:

    What kind of ad were you running (services)? When does your season usually start? How has the weather been down there? I know that we have not started to aggressively advertise yet. However, the time is coming up quickly.

    Grass is not growing yet and still dormant. Just figured people would want to know who is mowing their yard this yr.

    I mailed out 300 Direct letters on Feb 1st, signed 5 yearly contracts today, and got 3 landscaping jobs, a few people have called because they saw my new graphics on my trailer. It was like 75 deg today at 1pm.

    Still cold here. We are still doing leaves, yard cleanupsand re-establishing old flower beds. We pass out flyers each season (4 X per year). Got an add in the newspaper and yellow pages. All seem to be working fine.

    I was going to mail out tomorrow to a specific neighborhood that I'm targeting but it was 10 degrees this morning. Anything outdoors is the last thing on peoples minds right now. Granted, I'm mailing to them 3 times I'm waiting until next week yet then there is Valentines day so I may send it just after that when people don't have anything else on their mind.
