    Hey guys, I have been in business for 2 years doing landscaping work on the side while working for a large company. I am planning to break out on my own this spring and want to get some opinions on what you have found to be the best means of advertisement. Since I started a couple years ago I have got most of my work through word of mouth but it isn't enough to support going full time. I try to stay away from craigslist because it always ends up being a lot of champagne tastes on beer budgets. Let me know what works for you guys in both maintenance and installation. I am in central Ohio.

    This is going to be my 3rd year in business and am pushing more advertising this year. before i just had a facebook page and posted multiple posts throughout the year on local marketplace, as well as posted an add in the paper. i feel like i got a majority of my work from my add in the paper. this year im getting a 1 page website, doing 10,000 "impressions"/month online advertising, paper add, and some door hangers in subdivisions i want to target. hope this helps.

    Yeah, a website has been my biggest lead generator.

    Everywhere is different tho. I use a mix of online marketing and networking(referrals, biz cards in local biz, etc.).

    You just have to experiment a little and see what works best in your area. You can’t go wrong with a website and solid SEO tho. Everyone “googles” everything.

    Thanks guys. I have a website and I have got a few leads from people filling out the contact form but they usually are generated from other locations (Facebook, neighborhood app) I may throw some money towards facebook adds and google adds to see if they work for me.
