    In March I passed out 1000 flyers and only got 5 regular customers + a few leaf and gutter cleanups from it. I would like to get more of course. I'm thinking of passing out more and putting the price right on the flyer as I've never done that. Two questions:
    Anyone had success putting the estimate on the flyer?
    Anyone have success w/ flyers this late in the season?
    Thank You kindly

    You don't necessarily need to put an estimate on the flyer to have success at this point in the season. Many people may get your flyer and think, "Gee, I hadn't really thought about hiring someone, I think I'll give him a call for an estimate." Or, maybe they've been mowing it themselves and are thinking, "Man, this is a pain in the a** and it's not even June yet." So they get your flyer, and bam! Or, maybe they missed your first flyer and this time around they actually read it. It's all about timing, hitting the right audience and the messaging you put on your flyer.
