I started with mowing lawns 3 yrs ago. I put out flyers the first year. I put out 500 by walking. I got tired of that quick so I just drove around and put them in the newspaper boxes on peoples mailboxs. I done about 1500 that way. I also put 1500 in the newspaper. My local newspaper charges 35 per thousand to insert the flyers. I live in a town of about 15000. They do 8500 papers. The flyers did work very good. I got about 14 lawns and some other jobs from the flyers. I have since changed to doing mostly landscaping. I only have 8 of the 15 lawns left. People moved dropped a few etc. I will be doing postcards for landscaping this year. Here is the deal when I think about it that is a very good deal the newspaper offers. There is not a lot of junk in the paper maybe a lowes ad or grocery store a couple times a week. Just about everyone that reads the paper would see my flyer. I can have copies made for .04 a sheet that is 75 per thousand delivered, pretty good I think. I don't reley care for mowing, but it is steady and peacefull at times. I mow my 8 lawns, mostly because I like the customers and hate to drop them. I will probly do a few thousand and fill a day or two of mowing at that price. what do you think?
