    Hey everybody, Im in my third year doing business but havent distributed any advertising until this season. I made it thru a terrible situation recently and but managed to save my truck, trailer/equipment, laptop and printer. I own a 32 inch scag, 22 inch toro, kawasaki trimmer, mcclane edger and two blowers. I have 4000 cash and need as many customers as I can get. I would like to distribute somewhere around 10000 and expect to get about 150 weekly customers. How would you spend 4000 bucks to get the most customers for your investment?

    Does any body go thru the post office with bulk mail? If so, whats the cost per half page flier and how do you get the addresses?

    What do you think about putting the pricing on the flier themselves such as "yards priced at 25 35 and 45 per cut"?

    Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you.

    For one thing, don't expect to get 150 weekly accounts in one year. Thats nearly impossible. I Have roughly 85 and thats been over the course of 4 years, and their not all weekly either. I have roughly 1/2 weekly and 1/2 bi-weekly. I dont advertise and work on word of mouth. But again, you'll be lucky if you can land 50 accounts, and even thats pushing it. Good luck though!
