    I am trying to think of a good opening catch phrase or line to put at the top of my mowing flyer this year. In the past I have always had "I would love to mow your lawn" at the top of my flyers but I'd like to try something different this year. Any ideas?
    Also, last year I spent a lot on full color flyers and didn't get anymore response than with my black and white flyers from previous years actually I got more response with the previous years flyers and most of my work last year came from referrals. Has anyone else had that experience? I can make up 3000 black and whites for $50 at the local copy center so I think I'll go with that this year.
    Thanks for your help.

    Same here. It seems the message is far more important than color or not. I've seen this time after time.

    "We mow cheap,We mow good,We mow fast,let us mow you cheap,good,fast."

    That's a very, very nice website Drenched. Very simple, it gives some ideas for my flyer actually.

    As weird as it may seem when we did flyers many moons ago the type of paper made the most difference.

    Slick glossy always got more calls.

    However for the cost of slick glossy you can just have Rndsigns make you some door hangers and get away from "flyers" all together.

    Remember.. you are trying to get them to spend money with you not promotor a Puff daddy concert.

    I just hesitate to use door hangers b/c I feel that they give the impression that it's some big company advertising, rather than a solo small business who will give better attention to customer satisfaction. Not that big companies can't do that but I feel that a flyer better represents a solo operator than a door hanger. If that makes any sense.
