I WAS WONDERING WHAT EVERYBODY DOES FOR PROMOTION IN THE SPRING TO GET NEW RESIDENTIAL CUSTOMERS.
I CURRENTLY HAVE 3,000 FLYERS RUN OFF AND PLAN ON DELERVERING IN THE SPRING. (I RUN A FEW REAMS  OF PAPER OFF EVERY ONCE AND A WHILE TO SPACE OUT THE COST OF THE FLYERS)
I WAS ALSO THINKING ABOUT A PHONE BOOK AD AND A FEW NEWSPAPERS
HOW DOES EVERYONE ELSE GET NEW CUSTOMERS.
I DO REALIZE THAT THE BEST WAY TO GET NEW CUSTOMERS IS BY WORD OF MOUTH. BUT I AM LQQKING FOR NEW IDEAS.
PLEASE POST ANY IDEAS YOU HAVE
You need to "cap" your caps and do a search.
flyers, newspaper, phone book-looks like you are trying a good range. Do all your budget will allow then concentrate more on what works best for you.
Don't foget to ask for leads from any customers you get.
We do many thing, Telemarketing , door hangers, yellow pages, newspaper ads and inserts
It seems like yellow pages generates a lot of calls, but many seem to be tire kickers or PITA's. I have good luck with flyers.
call real green systems and ask for t.c.
he runs a telemarketing firm that only sells lawncare. all his reps are trained and all leads a pre- qualified by a manager. he charges $27 an hour per rep, per hour. you pick the times to call. if you cannot close the deal he will for a carge of 10%. now bfore you say man $27, well much will a new customer cost you? if he can get you a 16% - 18% closing rate on new leads what would that cost you?
hoe do i get a hold of t.c at real green?
