    Do any of you guys have a letter that you send out to your customers as a reminder that you offer over-seeding and de-thatching services. I have been trying to write one for the last week, but I seem to have some serious writers cramp. I am usually good at writing but I am hurting this week. If anyone has a letter I can get some ideas of please let me know. thanks<p>joe

    Photo copy a brochue on the benifits of aeration. Ryan has a nice one out. Put that in your monthly billings along with your letter.

    I agree with Bob, a simple note in an invoice usually does little to attract interest. But if you tell a customer that they need this service either in person, phone, or an informative brochure they will be much more likely to seriously consider it. I am considering purchasing some professional fertilization and aeration brochures just for a more professional approach to selling these services.
