those fliers sure work

  1. hey all. i had gone and passed out fliers maybe 2 months ago. or a month and a half ago. i was a scrub and put the fliers in the mail boxes because most of these areas i went to are really upscale and dont want people walking up the driveway and what not. so far i have gotten calls back from 10 of them? and i only put out maybe 6 - 7 hundred. i think the lowest price i had quoted for the lawns was 50 dollars? per cut every week. however the one i looked at today made it all worth it. 3 homes 2 locations each round is 500 dollars. and they are gonna give me a shot. one place is 6 acres in all but there are fields there and what not. the other place is like another 10 but only maybe 2 need to be cut. beautiful place. every week cut the grass. cleanup for the spring should be a 3 day job 2 guys. minimum. and the fall cleanup i dont even wanna think about. between the 3 homes they are worth i would say about 10 - 15 million. not too shabby for an 18 year old college student right? however i think my best one was last year at the one place that went for 20 million and i was a senior in high school. i gotta post a picture of that one day. but anyways. thanx for the idea for the fliers. it really paid off.
     
  2. how do i post pictures anyways? thanx again

    Good for you. I put out about 100 flyers a year ago, spring. While I only received one account last year from my flyers, I have received five accounts since March 2001. I was amazed that people kept the flyers.

    When we designed our flyers, we wanted people to keep the flyer on-hand and not discard it. With that in mind, we placed each flyer in a document protector, ($8.00 for 500 at Sam's.)

    The people that have called had placed the flyer in a three ring telephone type binder, or kept it file in the yellow page book.

    So, IHMO, flyers do work.
