I think I might do this for aeration this fall. This would be on top of my current customers and other flyers. I got done too fast last time (24 hr. rental....18 jobs with a helper last year= wasted rental time) and want to maximize my aeration time. Ok, well I got this idea from a guy that sells roofs and it seems to work well for him, here goes... Find a desired neighborhood (s), area, etc. go by in the morning the day or so before you plan on aerating and flyer the houses. Leave a flyer/doorhanger saying something like "We will be aerating in your neighborhood tomorrow, call us at 111-111-1111 to schedule or simply leave an envelope with payment on the screen door and we will swing by the neighborhood sometime tomorrow." ---- not exactly like that, but along those lines Then at night, say around 5 p.m. and on, go back to this neighborhood(s), knock on the doors, introduce yourself, "I'm Steve from ********* Lawn Care, I left the aeration flyer on your door, did you get a chance to look at it?" Then you go from there talking with the homeowner. This would also be the 2nd time the homeowner sees you (we all know about name recognition and how many times the customer needs to see you before making a buy) Has anyone ever tried this? Any thoughts as to if it is a good idea? I can think of a couple downsides to this, but think it has potential. What are your thoughts?
