    I agree about the "new company" take it out, and the pic of you mowing. start taking pictures to add to a photo gallery, people like that, you dont have to have a ton, just show quality work, and before an after stuff. take a look at my site and tell me what you think.

    Thanks, I still have some updating to do on my website. I will get rid of that over the weekend. Your website looks nice! I see what you mean about photo slide thing. Wow you do some big homes. Your work looks really good! i want to get a striping kit for my cub cadet. I'm think i will get one from Big League Lawns that way it will be universal and when i upgrade to a ZTR it will work. just need the accounts before i can upgrade.

    No. I just copied the URL in the address bar & hyper linked it to the picture. Just as you would do for text. whats your website?

    If you want a pretty easy free drag and drop website you can try
    http://www.weebly.com/ they also have paid upgrades ofcourse.

    Vistaprints has easy set up sites and

    hostgator is professional and has good customer service, they will show you how to do a drag and drop type site but it's a bit of a learning curve.

    Most drag and drop sites and hosting is as low as $10 a month.

    Thanks. Yeah idk i have a garden tractor so i thought it works until i upgrade to a commercial unit. Once i get enough accounts i will hopefully get one in late spring. a lot of lawn care websites use a pic with that guy in it so im not to worried.

    Hi, I just thought I'd jump in there & tell you that I also think your website looks great! I know you said that you already have a marketing supplier, but if you are looking to mix up your materials I wanted to let you know we have a fantastic special going on right now at Adeas for door hangers with our patented Band-It feature. You can get 1,000 for only $99.00. You can also add Stick It to the back for only $20.00 more. We have video on our website explaining how they work. Take a look: http://www.adeasprinting.com/Door-Hangers
