I recently moved to the northern MD area, very close to the DE and PA state lines. I had a landscaping business (basically just lawn maintenance) in SC for a few years prior to the move. It wasn't' the only thing I did so it suited me to keep it pretty small. As a result, I never had to market it .... literally all my customers were through word of mouth or were just people who saw my work and approached me. I'm hoping that will work here too but I'd like to jump start it as soon as possible. What I planned to do pretty much immediately was to locate a few somewhat upscale neighborhoods or subdivisions, get out of my truck, and just go door to door talking with folks face to face and leaving my card. So I'm asking, as a completely amateur marketer, does this sound like a decent plan? I mean if I could just get 4 or 5 accounts to start, I'd be a happy guy. I know I could sort of evolve it from there to the point that I'd like it to be at, keeping it at a one man operation.
