    Hi,

    After a halt of 2 years, I'm planning to come back to lawn mowing but for now I have 0 customers .... nada.... my question.

    Investing in 20.000 EDDM, would you think it is tangible to get 120 customers in North Dallas area?

    Thanks for the input.

    Anyone has sent flyers using EDDM? What feed back can you give about it?

    Thanks

    use the search bar... a lot of threads on this... usual return of 0.5% - 1.0% 20,000 will cost you some $$

    In 2011 I put up 7 flyers and got 5 calls.
    In 2012 I did 2600 door hangers and got one client (nice door hangers too)

    2012 business has grown off of those first couple lawns. Plus some door docking of the neighbors I service.

    Plus business card every where. Spark up random conversations with people in grocery lines, gas pumps, where ever.

    One of my hobbies in yard sale picking. I always give out cards there too.

    Good luck
