    I am wondering when it is a good time to advertise. I currently have a bunch of neighborhoods being built around my area and I want to get to the word out about my lawn care service but im thinking whether if it would be to late. I offer packages monthly so maybe i can start now with blowing leaves and cutting bushes or miscallaneous stuff. What do you guys think?

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    Hey Kevin,
    Anytime is a good time to start! The sooner the better! Name recognition is the name of the game with any business. Start with utilizing different types of advertising and see what works for you in your area. (door hangers, yellow pages, newspaper ads) Search around and develop different formula's for advertising and see what works, its alot of trial and error at first but you gotta see what works in your area and start somewhere! So start now with the cheapest method and see how it goes... Good luck!
