Well i started really late with getting my business up and running, wanted to make sure i had most of everything covered before I did anything...well last week was my 1st week of marketing, as of now I have 6 clients and 4 of those are year long agreements the other 2 are just for the summer I just got my door hangers delievered and will be handing them out this weekend, I am very excited about my turn around right now, i have had 8 leads and won 6 of them, so think I am doing something right, atm I am charging an adverage of 140.00 a month, a few of the ones that signed year long agreements I got 50 for the 1st job cause it's either alot of work (cleaning, yard hasn't been cut in a long time, stuff like that). I also won a bid today, told her it would be 40 per cut cause she is about 20 miles away, but I liked her area she lived in and thought it would be a great place to try to branch out, but she kinda made a face when I told her the price, I plain out told her, "you will find a place that is cheaper then I am" but you won't find the service that I will provide 100% of the time!!" She smiled and said "where do i sign" I have to thank everyone on this site!! I have browsed around here for months now reading everything I can...and without alot of the stuff here, I would have been lost or learned alot of stuff the hard way so thanks...i think I am headin in the right direction!!!
