    Hello Everyone!!

    I recently started my lawn care business. I passed out some fliers and estimates in my hood and surrounding hoods and have not really had alot of response(Ihave only three accounts so far) I've had alot of people tell me they might call me in a few days, but still no word!! I was thinking about follow-up visits?? Does this sound too pushy, or just a friendly reminder?? I really need several more accounts!! any advice ??

    follow up- follow up- follow up then follow up some more!

    you're not being pushy, you're trying to build a business and provide a service that folks 'hinted' that they may be interested in.

    good luck

    Always follow up. Doesn't matter if it's residential or commercial....FOLLOW UP.

    Can't sell successfully if you don't. People procrastinate about lawn care. Commercial accounts especially, always follow up so they know you're interested. Just have to be cautious and not to sound like you are begging for business too. Be cool, be calm and follow up!

    Good luck!
