    Default Newbie in South Eastern Victoria

    Hello to everyone. Great to be here! I have just commenced my business. I have picked up a few jobs from Google. I place my first ad in the local paper, a 6 week run, and got 6 calls in the first week. None in the second week? Is this a pattern that I can expect to continue? What are your experiences with the local paper?

    Hey mate, I’ve never put an ad in the paper or any paid ad online.
    The best way I’ve found to get customers is head to any new housing estate and drop flyers.
    You only need 20-30 customers which you then get a Facebook page going and get your 20-30 customers to push and recommend your business for you.
    I’m outer south east Melbourne��
    14 years into full time mowing and still love it.
