    I agree its to long to say hello I'm raising prices, You don't need to explain Why your raising prices the people already know. They buy gas same as you, so just tell them its gonna cost X amount more but in return can you offer something there not paying for? How about a free PH test for soil amendedment cheap and fast, and you can upsell from it. offer to take care of any small spots of snow mold free and then upsell a slit seeding. In other words give one free and then upsell from the freebie

    I actually don't find it too long, and I feel it has been written quite well. Very Good job! You may want to go one step further and include prices for some of the items such as fertilizer treatments, spring and fall cleanups, etc. that is if you have the time. I know in my are it has been a very slow winter and not much snow cover to cover the grounds making it easy for estimates. I'm just thinking ahead because I know how it is once the spring rush comes and its not uncommon to work all day and then have to do 15 estimates at the end of the day. If you could eliminate some of the estimates and do them now while your slow it might help.

    I agree with sheshovel, a lot of long winded sentences. Just get to the point without being too descriptive,(too much info). It wasn't that bad though.:waving:
