i have 25 clients right now i usally mow tuesday and thursday with about 4 and half hours of work each day.i have been getting calls from my flyers all week i have been out everyday doing two or three estimates.
Flyers and door to door worked for us. We looked into getting an ad in the phone book but they wanted somewhere around $300 a month. So if your just now starting try and find a good place to design and print your flyers. Also put flyers in resturaunts and carryouts. Good luck
Same here, Have one account and have been doing flyer's and started paper adds and residential news letter adds. Hopefully this week will produce some more business. Think of any and every way to get your name out there.
I have close to 125 accounts, and getting more everyday. I still have to get in contact with 15 of my clients from last year. One thing you got to relize is most (80%) are about 28,000-35,000 + sq. ft. Were probably cutting about 110 acres a week, (last year figures) we do it in about 75 man hours, based on my 2 employee's one (crew leader gets 40 hrs reguardless), and the other employee gets about 30-35. Thats last year figures also, I did not mow myself, did the bidding/fert/payroll/etc. This year I have added areation, and am working on getting a hydro seeder, I think me and my wife will do the seeding.
