Yet another flyer to get an opinion on....
What do you think?
Very nice however you should set a limit on the free lawn cut what if the customer has 5 acres and the beds are small?
The one thing I would consider is dropping the 10% discount. I don't think you need it. Do you really have that much trouble retaining clients for a year? I'm not sure what your % of profit is, but that 10% is going to shave it down quit a bit. Your overhead stays the same while your profit just lowered by 10%.
Other then that, It looks great!
Looks pro, you do it yourself??? Nice job!!!!

I originally had free lawn cut with cleanup." But I realized that I was giving too much as they would get a free cut with just a bed cleanup. So I changed it so they only get a "free" cut with a "FULL SERVICE" clean up which is the whole property.
The 10% of is meant to entice them to sign a "full year" agreement vs. just pay as you go. That is hard to get customers to do in this area.
The flyer was done in 1 hr by an advertising manager I know for free. (I am going to give them a gift of some type though)
I like it alot-stands out and looks very professional!!
But I would limit the coupons. Maybe put some limitations on it like for the free cut, put *New Customers Only.
On the 10% off, put *Offer ends May 1st.
I see, I thought you were giving it to them just to lock them in for service for a year. I was going to say, you can't have that many people jumping ship once they start using you.
So you are saying it is to lock them into a 12 month billing cycle? you might already do this, but I would suggest you make your agreements continuous from year to year. This way you don't have to get them to re-sign every year.
Are you going to raise their price by 10% next year? or give them the 10% every year and just raise your prices as you normally would?
Give your friend a pat on the back from me too, He did do a nice job on the flyer.
Hhmmm,... good points........
I do not have a recurring clause?? in my agreement. So I see your point of having to sign them again every year....
Also the 10% is just for the first year.... But I see how that might not be good at the start of the second year. (canxg due to the increase)
I am just looking for a way to get customers to sign up for Ann billing instead of pay as you go.
Also,. I want to send out the bills at the end of the month for the next month. example: the bill for Apr goes out Mar 25th and is due on Apr 10th or service stops.... I give the credit to another lawnsite member for giving me that idea...
Sorry,... I didn't want this to become an "infamous" contract thread. I admit I am the newest of the new and my knowledge is limited..... :blush:
Can one customer use all 3 coupons? That's a lot of revenue down the tube.
