I know you'll beat me up on this! I also know it's illegal.........except here in GA where the law on soliciting mailboxes seems to have been thrown out the window. Couple of guys I know in the area have done this and have picked up quite a few landscape and maintenance jobs. One guy picked up over 30 accounts in his first try! In the past I always advertised in the sub division news letters(monthly) or direct mailings with very little results while I see other LCO getting accounts from littering mailboxes and driveways. This year, I'm going to plaster mailboxes because it seems to be the acceptable form of advertising around here. Yesterday I found a window cleaning co. business card IN my mailbox.....2nd time from them. I stopped my mail woman 2 weeks ago and asked her what the deal was. She told me she didn't care if people advertised on her route so long as they didn't obstruct the box. She even told me to give her my flyers and she would put them in the boxes on her route!!!! She told me she did it for a neighbor of mine who has a pest control business. I picked up a new customer last summer. She told me she saw my ad in the news letter from her sub division but called the guy who placed a flyer on her mailbox because she figured I would be more expensive. He decided to go out of business and he referred me to her. As it turns out I gave her the same quote $45.00/week for her 4k sq. ft lawn as the company that littered her mailbox. I told her I disagree with the idea of littering mailboxes and driveways and her response.........everybody does it and you should too! This is from a couple in a 500k home. Starting in February I'm going to hit the newer sub divisions with my flyers.......don't like it, but it's the way to advertise in North Georgia!
