Ok, i have been toying with an idea....and i need your opinion. Here it is. You know how when you go to Krispy Kream, to an ice cream parlor, or pretty much any local store, you can ask for a sample of their product - even bakery. and you ALWAYS leave the place after buying something, right? you know where this is going, right? So, what about the idea of, "let me cut your yard for free - 1 time. If you like it, sign the contract for a whole season right now. If you don't, i am on my way and you have nothing to loose..." now, i know that you guys will not like the idea. or say, "There are going to be people that will take advantage of that.". but how many times have you gone into a store, tried a little sample of ice-cream and then said, "No, thanks". and left? anyway, i know the logistics will be a pain for the guys that have a full schedule. but i have only 4-5 clients and i can go and cut their grass on the day that i dont have anything going on. I know that i will not CUT EVERY SINGLE estimate i give......but i can throw the offer out there and see if they take it. at least they can see my commitment to quality. think about it........and then reply, please!!!
