    How agressive is to agressive ? What do you guys use; direct mail, cold call, yellow pages, drop in sales calls ? I'm looking to increase my density (picking up targeted clients).

    I use the cold call, or drop in sales for myself. But I start in July, not December.

    Looking for next season, we're booked for this season. I want things more consolidted & possibly looking at getting out of the HOA's. We started using loaders & pushers. The guys are just pounding out the work (1 acre lot took them 15 minutes), the contractor plowing 2 buildings down was still on the 10K front lot he was on when they arived on site, they we're laughing at him. The larger lots around here (5+ acre) go for cheap, I'd rather do a bunch of 1-3 acre lots in a row.
