I've rapidly started 2 lawn care businesses in 2 cities and really enjoyed the advertising, talking to potential customers and bringing in new accounts. My question to you all is.... If I came to your city and brought in 100 new accounts in 2 weeks how much would you pay for them? These accounts would not be contracted, they would be customers who recieved your business' flyer (which I would design for you) at their door, saw your sign (which I would design for you), or perhaps I walked into their business and sold them. They would be 95% residential lawns and all accurately estimated at your businesses prices. How much would that be worth? I would pay for all the advertising expenses, flyers, signs, labor, business cards, everything, just how much would these customers calling you for service be worth? I'm a soon to be business school graduate and I'm considering doing this for lawn care businesses wanting to grow at the beginning of the next mowing season (March-May).
