Just started lawn service business here in n.c. having tuff time getting cust, any suggestions.
You could start off with homemade flyers, then work your way up to business cards, signs, etc. The cheapest route will be flyers though, most likely. I'd go door to door and try to find customers. Never know who you will pick up mid-season. Hope this helps.
I have been passing out flyer's and handing out business cards, i have a 60in kubota pro zt stile weed eater and blower 6x16 trailer. The yards i've done have done a real nice job,Cust seem really happy,It's just going slow
Nothing is ever built over night. Keep passing out the fliers and cards. Work will come. I was out today for a little while doing that same thing. It does take time but keep doing quality work and advertise with whatever means you can.
May just have to give it time. Did you just start up your business recently or earlier in the Spring? Keep doing a good job, don't get discouraged, and word-of-mouth will help you gain more customers in time. What's the weather situation? Dry or wet? That may be a reason as well. Good luck and keep your head up.
Just started in july,It's been a little dry last couple of weeks,Thanks for the advise,anyone else in the charlotte lake norman area in n.c.?
Not the best time of the year to get started. Keep trying you may pick up a few as the lowballers drop out
