Hi guys i have recently finished school and i am looking to start my own lawn care business and i have a few questions:
How should i advertise? Whats the best method you use to get business?
i was planning of printing of flyers to post to peoples houses and create a facebook page as a start using this as the place where people can contact me. After i have mowed there lawn i can ask them to write a review on my facebook page.
What equipment is a must? What are some good extra items i should purchase?
-Edger (whipper snipper)
How should i structure my client data base? What do you guys use?
I was thinking of using an excel sheet and having a big book as a back up. What details should i make sure i get and write down such as there phone number etc.
How much should i charge?
As i am new i am not sure how much i should charge for my service i have been looking around and researching and i think $30 sounds fair? should i charge per hr or on the size of the property?
Any extra tips or things you wish you knew when you started?
