    How and when do you all start getting in contact with your previous customers before the new season starts?

    I am sending my spring letters out tomorrow along with rate increase letters for 50% of my customers! I figure I should be mowing by the middle or end of March, so right now is a good time for the letters to go out.

    We always send a Thanksgiving card telling them how thankful we are to have them as a customer, and inclose a coupon for referrals or a small discount for prepays.
    Also a Christmas Card with our current flyer, and again referral coupons.
    Then if that didn't get em, we do Valentines, and also mail out letters.
    We are a fert service, so we like to get a commitment before all the big guys start hitting them up.
