I am just wondering if the results we are experiencing are typical....


I'm running the business (advertising,books,equipment)aspects of a new lawn care company.

We've been able to sign up 25 weekly customers (mow/edge/trim)....average cut $30. Also about $12k in misc work (cleanups/mulch etc). We've done this on a budget of $700....and put out our first ad 23 days ago. We have another $700 worth of ads over the next 2 months coming out. We've given about 50 estimates.

Seems to be quite a start.... Ive never run a business where leads came so easily. I know we are pricing competitively but not lowballing. And the calls just keep coming in 5 or 6 a day....

Where and how did they find your website using a search?
