    i haven't started yet.. i finished the new flier last night.. but due to the weather.. i didn't think it was wise to start until this weekend or so.. but that's for me and my door to door advertising method.

    pass out flyers from mid March through mid April. Most calls come around April 10th.
    Best days to pass out are sunny, dry, temps above 60.

    I started a few weeks ago when we had the 70* days think I passed out around 1,000 and only had three phone calls landed two. Also had two clients call back from last year there back on board for this year. It's good to here that some one else is trying to go do spring clean ups, I thought I might have been to ealy. What do you guys think about a power rake and aeriaton is it still to wet? I'm laidoff till april 2 and would like to try and get some of this stuff done so all I have to do is cut when the time comes.
