    This is my second season. I picked up about 6 word of mouth and about 57 by advertising. I passed out some 4-5K fliers and mailed 100K targeted direct mail pieces.

    Well I wonder how many I would get if I sent out 10k direct mailers, I'm hopein to pick up about 30 more lawns, Do you think this is out of the question?

    Not if your really try. I think your not going to get 30 with 10000 flyers. Maybe if its a really good place that lots of ppl want lawncare. Try 25000 and your probly got your 30 accounts.

    Well everyone says that there is a return rate of 1-3% to me if I do the math right it will come out to be 100-300 calls, I know I won't win every bid that I give out, but I think that it could happen.

    Who do I call for a direct mailing? Or should I just look under the yellow pages for "direct mailers"??

    I think I may do that this coming season...
