Thankful For Your Family…. Business?
Landscaping businesses are often family endeavors. While this can combine the best of both worlds (personal and professional), it isn’t always smooth sailing. Click here to read more.
I have two flyers. One that people pass out for me, and one that has a spot for estimates on it. I personally give the estimates, so I peek around the fence or over the gate, and quote them a price right there on the flyer that has a spot for estimates.
I have two spots on my flyers for estimates which I fill out as I walk around. Takes less time to write it on each one, then to walk to the next house. Works great, because people already know the ballpark I am in when they think about calling for services. This also gives the impression of efficiency, as I do not have to come back to give an estimate for mowing or aerating (the two things I put on the hanger) See the attached document of my door hangers, and it seems to work well!
I do the same thing, sure it takes a little longer to pass out flyers, but for the most part, there isn't that much variation in prices. I have several flyers printed with my most common price on it and for the others that may require a different amount, than I just take a flyer with the higher price on it and mark through it and write the lower price. That way the homeowner thinks they are getting a discount.
It also saves the time of going back out and giving another estimate. With the price already there almost everyone that calls back signs up for service. I wouldnt do it any other way.....Just my $0.02
