Now before this thread gets kicked to the off-topic forum - read it first please. It does have to do with Commercial lawn care and LCOs in this forum. I was just thinking today about the other forum here; the Homeowners' Assistance Forum. It doesn't appear to be all that popular for LCOs. And I can understand why. I don't go there because A) It's difficult to troubleshoot landscaping problems for someone in a totally different climate with totally different plants and turf B) There is no incentive for me and C) There is nothing I will learn there. But what if we could change that a little? Today I thought of an idea that would at least get rid of A and B. What if homeowners who posted messages were told that once they posted a message, they'd get at least 2-3 responses from local LCOs? So as soon as a message is posted from someone from Dallas, TX - 3 LCOs on this board (who would first be signed up for this program) would be notified via email that they had an "advice request" from a local homeowner. A forum like this is far superior for both the homeowner and the LCO. The homeowner gets advice from a local who knows the climate, turf, soil conditions, common problems, etc. And the LCO gets a chance to share his knowledge and company name with a perspective future client. We could be helping these people out a lot more than we currently are and potentially adding future business at the same time. This site could potentially generate leads for us. What do you all think? Chuck? Everyone else?
