HI I AM THE OWNER OF MCGRAIL LAWN MANAGEMENT & SNOW REMOVAL, IN OAK FOREST, IL (NEAR CHICAGO)

I CURRENTLY HAVE 3 SNOWBLOWER SET UPS.
AND WOULD LIKE TO GET ENOUGH BUSINESS TO GET A PLOW.

HOW WOULD YOU RECOMMEND MARKETING MY BUSINESS TO GET NEW CUSTOMERS?

If there are smaller properties where plows are not as effective, market in these areas as alternatives to snow plowing. Add in sidewalks and you might be able to get 2 or 2.5 times the going plow rate. Sell it as a premium service, an upgrade to what they might already have.

Helpful Hint,

When I first started, after the first snow I drove around and
wrote the business name and address down of places that
had no service.

I only chose places I knew I could handle, I then mailed them
a flier of your services available.

Got about 1 out 3 places to call, and now on contract.

When I feel the need for new/or better locations, I will still go out and scout this way. Keep in mind this area does not have lots
of competition.

I tried that with residential. I found out that only meant they were too cheap to pay for someone to plow.
