    The results will suprise you. when you are in peoples face they are all about looking at a price. If you just stick a flyer in there mailbox they just pitch it. Same with landscaping. Last spring we averaged 4 quotes/bids per man on a Saturday. We would close at least 1 sometimes two with them all in the 8-15,000 dollar range.
