    Anybody ever use yard signs at the accounts that they have to help promote business?

    We had 3 signs made with removable inserts so that we could use them year round. Started with "Firewood" and then inserted "Weed Control Spraying". Very good luck with both. Now we plan to insert "Weekly Lawn Mowing". Much better luck with signs than fliers.

    So does anybody ever make a deal with the homeowner of the yard you already mow and ask them to place a yard sign out front? do you give them a free cut or something to sweeten the deal?

    My uncle ran for city council so i got about 10 of his election signs and painted them orange, then had my grandmother make white lettering for them with her cricket machine thing that cuts stickers.

    Ok, kool. I was thinking of doing that. Saves time and money. I was gonna offer a free cut or reduced cut to the home owner that lets me. Just that they aren't very cheap. I checked vista print, build a sign and i also googled cheap yard signs. The cheapest I found was something like 11 dollars a pop. And it goes down to something like 10 or 9 if you get 6 or more. Anyways, I'm going to have to ask my homeowners if they would mind. Anybody know of any better places. I haven't checked with local places yet. They don't have that many of them around here.
