    Temps are warming up and the calls are coming in. Biggest statements I'm hearing from my customers are that "I've called 5 places and no one returns my calls". LOL. Well, I'm right there to swing in and sign them up and it's working great. I keep hearing that the flyers are a very good method of advertising from them as well.

    Can't wait until next week when I unload 11,000 flyers in the local paper.

    Hey justmjc, I'm glad to hear you're getting a lot of calls. How much is it costing you to send out 11,000 fliers in the paper and what kind of fliers are you using?

    well, 22,000 flyers about $600 to print in grayscale and $40 per 1000 for inserts. I'm going to send out twice. Also, a 3x2 display ad for $80 each time as well.

    I have already been turning away calls. Right now as it stands I am only accepting aeration and fertilization customers.

    So far this week I have received about 17 calls, and did 5 estimates for fertilization and/or aeration.
