i read alot of critism on smaller accounts. (nothing to do with the other thread on here dvm,. that was nothing). i am one of the very few on here with an urban business where the accounts are considerably smaller then the rest of you guys, as well as some of my pricing. like the article in turf, got me going the other day. i can understand the appearance of "(50) $30 vs. (100) $15) accounts. i don't have aproblem with that if it works for you.. believe i see a big differnce in the markets. but i line up several $15 - 25 accounts . here you eventually wind up taking over neighborhoods, and spend a large portion of your day with little to no driving and knock out alot of houses. it comes to a really nice figure per hour. (granted my booking has to be refined, but it is obvious). pros of this method, or type of market: you can litterally loose 20 customers a year and not bat an eyelash vs. loose 20 the other market and your are in trouble. 100 customers at "x" amount for the lawn... then remember all the extras.. 100 trimming jobs, 100 fertilizer applications, 100 oppurtunities for landscape installs, 100 times your lettered truck is sitting as advertising giving you exposure. 100 times someone can spread word of mouth about you.(maybe not 100% of the customers, but you get the idea). point being overall, just can't always look at the lawn end of it, (unless you're a mow only guy, buy most on here claim not to be). there is alot of money to made off each account on top of lawn mowing.. and each account you have large or small is a potential big $$$ install or job.
