    Well I have just received my business number from the state, and ready to start! Specializing in lawn care, power washing, and snow plowing for next year.

    My question is: When do i start handing these 7000 fliers out! At 1% i hope I get 70 customers, to go with the 20 lawns I inherited!

    Never to early if you ask me.
    I attach a coupon so they have a reason to put it on their fridge.

    Remember Don't lowball your work

    The only thing about handing out fliers now is it wouldnt look good if the next day we have snow on the ground (not saying that it is suppose to snow). I would just watch the weather. I would hate to see you waste fliers. Unless you plan on putting flyers in areas twice, then now would be a good time for the first round and then wait a couple of weeks for the second round.

    In the Northeast fliers can be difficult, if you send them to early and there's another snow storm all of you work could be for nothing.I also think that its nice to be one of the first one's that the potential customer receives.So what I do is watch the weather....Timing is everything.
