    For those of you who use postcards and mail them out in bulk, what is the primary focus of the ad itself?

    I want to design a postcard which can somehow illustrate the value of having someone else do the lawn..Saving them time and hard work. I want something simple and not too wordy.

    Would anyone be willing to share some of their postcard do's and dont's. Or share their ideas?

    Thank you.

    Post the price on it. People don't want a free estimate - they just want to know what the price is. Of course you will need to include some restrictions or something like that.

    Post the service that you provide on it.

    They already know why they don't want to mow their lawn. You don't need to tell them. Just make it easy for them to find out what services you offer, what the cost is, and make the whole process as hassle free as possible. They should be able to read your postcard, make a phone call, and then forget about it. Try and stay away from the free estimate except for the larger jobs.
