    i live in CT and was wondering if it is too late into the season to send out flyers to try to get more customers? is this a good idea or should i just wait untill spring? Thanks

    Down here you can get customers all year (we cut year round). I picked some customers up in December.

    I flyer to not only pick up customers but to increase name recognition. I just started another round of flyering myself.

    You will get the ones with the tallest grass and the ones dumped by another lawn cutter.

    As long as you know this you will be ready for it. it will get you some experience for the next year. good luck.

    John is right. you have to work through the customers with issues. Like waiting til the club ends to meet a female.

    Pick up as many as you can. Try not to over do it with getting a lot of equipment. (Overhead) keep it down.

    Unless you have more business than you can handle....I'd suggest some type of advertistement year round.
