New to the site but have found some very valuable info. Would like to get your input on this topic. I have been cutting grass part time as a side job for 3 seasons, with a different full time job to pay the bills. My full time job has not been treating me very well lately and I have decided to take on my landscaping career full time and become my own boss. Currently I have 7 or so customers under my belt. Not a whole lot of words of mouths. I have been pondering whether or not to place a full page ad in the local paper, or do a full page insert in that paper, or possibly even direct mail the most prestigous subdivisions around. My question to the lawnsite world is what do you think would work best or maybe what has been a proven customer getter for you? Paper hits 40000+ homes every Thursday. Thank you for sharing the knowledge that you have with a newbee.
