With all the threads on how to get business, I decided to go in my database and compile a list of how I got each customer. This is my 3rd season in business, working solo. 65 active residential customers as of now. Just for reference for those starting up. Most customers have been with me at least 2 years. Flyers- 28 customers (43%) Referrals- 11 (17%) Saw truck/Saw me working- 11 (17%) Community newsletter- 5 (7.5%) Friend/Relative- 5 (7.5%) Took over previous owner's contract- 3 (4.5%) Rental home (2nd house) for existing customer- 2 (3%) I rounded off so might not add to 100%.
