    we began last week, and I must say, the success rates go way up when you meet most of the people while their home, totally seperates you from the pack. Sunday I met so many nice people in a brand new development...out of 60 homes I knock on the door and either spoke to or left the info when I left, we signed 6 on the spot, 2 more estimates Thursday night, and a topdress job. Not even going to advertise again until this Saturday. All 6 of the people from last week are also getting an Easter Lily

    I would like to try that approach. Instead of just knocking on the door, approach them with a flyer and contract in hand.

    I came across a few people asking me for contracts. I think this is something they expect from lawn care provider.

    Hi chevyman1,

    Good job. There is no doubt in my mind that you will find a lot more success with the way you are doing things.

    I was thinking about trying that this year, glad it worked out well for you.

    Sunday's usually a great day for doing estimates/advertising. Saturday's can be iffy, a lot of folks have kids sports and other things planned. Seems like I find more people home during the week than on Saturday.
