What if you created a bbq trailer out of some 50 gallon barrels and made it available to your community for free?
How much could it possibly cost to put something like this together and then think to yourself how much good will would you create with it?
I think this is another idea that could make you a great friend to your community.
Maybe you could also get a canopy tent that had your name on it, to help promote your business. The screen printing could read ABC Lawn Care - Free Community BBQ Trailer.
Can you imagine how many of your local community groups would just love you for offering this free service? It could really give you a great ‘in’ with many community members.
What’s your take on this?
Then in your marketing material and on your lawn care business website you could promote that you offer this service free to your community and you could have pictures showing different local groups using your trailer. Wouldn’t that be awesome!
You could also have a banner that promoted your lawn care business on the serving table as well as signs on your bbq trailer.
Here is an idea of what your serving tables could look like. Think about how many local potential customers would be seeing this and hearing great things about you and your lawn care company for providing this!
You could also add a bunch of your business cards and flyers on the table and offer a raffle for a free lawn cut. Have a section where you can fill out your name and stick it in a fish bowl. The winner is chosen at the end of the day by the group. The winner doesn’t have to be there but they do need to live in your service area and have a yard within a certain size.
Then you could take pictures of the winner when you go to cut their lawn and post this on your website!
