    I'm ordering 15,000 door hangers within the next week. How many regular lawn accounts do you think I can generate from this? roughly...

    Hello, I hope you plan on spending alot of time getting them out. We usually do about 4500-6000 a year. It takes 2 guys almost 2 weeks to get them out. Iv ususally gotten any where from 1- 2 percent response rate.

    Now half of those people are inquiring about one time services. And the other half are inquiring about mowing. Out of the half the Inquiring we will land for the season and hope to continue into following years. So If you put out 15000 with a 1% rate. You will get 150 calls. 75 with be for mowing, and you could probably bank on 35-40 regular customers. Plus the side work and extras from the 75 Inquiries for other services.

    Marketing rules would suggest 2-3 per house 3-4 weeks apart. :usflag:

    The one thing I have found that doesn't work for door hangers or even putting fliers on the front door is that people with garages tend to pull into the garage and go inside that way.

    I am very curious to hear the results of the 15,000!
