    I just started a Landscaping Biz. I handed out a bunch flyer at first and got a pretty good response....I have also taken out an ad in the paper and got nothing....Are flyers the best way to get new customers?

    2nd part

    I am also trying to get some commercial account. I am trying to put together "Year-Round Maintenance Contracts"......Is this a good move?

    I think contracts are the only way to go. We will not accept any new customers unless they sign a yearly contract. Commercial or otherwise.

    how do you structure them? (Like X amount of dollars = Mowing and trimming), Then do you charge extra for "Special Projects"( Planting, mulching, etc)?
