    -Door Hangers
    -Do the job right the first time
    -Actually meet your customers when doing an estimate. Helps with word of mouth if they know you personally. (If your not ugly that is)

    It all depends on where you are and your market. The key is to find what is effective in your area. People can list all sorts of ways they built there business but it doesn't mean it will work for you. Start up some avenues and start tracking the effectiveness of them. Good Luck!!

    Do good work and yard signs. I did one job for a very picky pita. Threw out a yard sign and landed 4 $600+ jobs and a new mowing contract. The best part is people didnt even ask for prices from their weekly lcos they just accepted my price because of my work

    Door hangers worked well for us over the past 16 years. We also developed an instant online quoting system on our website. We would simply put "get an instant online quote" on the door hanger and our web address and many customers will sign up online. Check out Acculawnsystems.com.
