.. My area is very Snowbird dependent and the Snowbirds are already starting to comeback. Oct 15th kind marks the return of the Snowbird. But Sept 15th to Nov 15th is the time frame. Many return to the North for Thanksgiving and even stay for X Mas. Then Jan 15 marks the second coming of Snowbirds. The Bottom Line is: While yard Boys are finishing up on their blow and go customers and even ready to sell off equipment for Beer Money. The smart professional is and has been marketing to the returning Snowbirds who are disappointed that their property doesn't look like Disney World. I find this time of years is the best time to pick up Year Round Customers. Advertising can go far this time because those interested in your ad are looking for a year round service. They are unhappy with the cheap blow & go guy and are willing to pay. Your area may not have as high a percentage of Snowbirds as my area. But Snowbirds are a big factor in Florida's economy unless they are the cheap ass Canadians who get in the way and are a PITA. BTW April 15th is Snowbird go home day. It is the time frame leading up to returning north that offers a upsell market for those DIY things they didn't get done. ..
