Six Facebook Marketing Tips For Lawn Care Companies

lawn care marketing

Why is social media so important for lawn care companies? Social media is a free tool your company can use to promote brand awareness, engage with customers through customer service, and can help generate new customer leads! Continue reading to see how you can maximize Facebook and other social media tools to help grow your company.


1. Setting Up or Optimizing Your Facebook Page

Ensuring your Facebook Page is set up properly is imperative to promote engagement. Before you even begin, make sure you are creating a “Page” as opposed to an “Account”. Facebook accounts are used by individuals while Facebook Pages are used by companies. Facebook may delete your account if you classify yourself incorrectly.

As you start to build out your page, consider these four items:

  • Your Profile Picture - This is the first thing someone will notice about your Facebook Page and should be a recognizable image such as your logo. Your Profile Picture should also be 180 x 180 pixels.
  • Your Cover Photo - This space should be used to show off your company’s identity in a visually appealing yet simple way. Your Cover Photo should be
  • The “About Us” - This section is where you can help your page stand out from your competition and make your company shine. Be sure to fill out as much information in the “About us” as possible so customers can get a feel of your brand.
  • The Call To Action - This is a button located in the right hand corner, beneath your cover photo. Consider making your call to action button a “Contact us” or “Call us” that allows prospects to get in touch with you directly when they have questions.  

Here are two examples of companies that have set up their Facebook Page using the above checklist.

2. Merging Your Facebook with Other Marketing Tactics

Your company already uses marketing to gain new customers and promote your brand, don’t let these efforts go to waste. Add social media buttons to marketing pieces including email, newsletters, and print material. Also make sure you have your social media buttons linked to your website so customers can easily click to see and read more about your company.

 


3. Plan For Success with a Content Calendar and Scheduling Tool

With small or large companies, we can often find ourselves becoming “too busy” to get bogged down by the tedious work of social media. However there are ways to make sure that even in the busiest of months, you can still be posting effortlessly.

One way to do this is to schedule posts ahead of time. If you know there is a certain day or week that tends to get overwhelming, then schedule a post to get automatically sent out. You can schedule these posts weeks before, allowing you to be fresh and ready for the busiest of days!

Additionally, you can plan for success with a content calendar. A social media content calendar allows you to organize your social media activities far in advance in order to make your social media more manageable. You can download a customizable Social Media Content Calendar by Hubspot using the below link:

>>Download the the Social Media Content Calendar

 

4. Always Use Include Visuals in Posts

According to Hubspot, visual posts receive 2.3 times more engagement than posts without visuals and visuals account for 87% of total interactions. Whenever you are posting to your Facebook Page ensure you are incorporating an interesting visual or a video. See below for two free, easy ways to make professional grade graphics without paying for a graphic designer!

Free resources for visual posts:

  • Pixabay: Free stock photo website.
  • Canva: Allows you to create a visually appealing post without the help of a graphic designer. They have numerous templates to use for Twitter, Facebook and more!

 

5. Create Attention-Grabbing Content

Posts should only include a 1 to 3 sentence summary about the article or piece of content you are linking back to. It should also always include a visual! When using social media, your audience is scrolling through news quickly so don’t get too wordy or they may bypass your posts. Keep posts short, simple and attention-grabbing!

When you are thinking about what content you should be posting use the “rule of thirds” to help guide you!

  • Education Pieces Authored By You - ⅓ of your post should be educational pieces authored by your company. For example, you may post about pests that are destroying certain plants, then link this back to a product or service you offer to combat it!
  • Brag About You - ⅓ of post should be about you. This is where you can get into sales in a tasteful way! Consider posting a testimonial or a promo for this section.
  • Educational Pieces By A Third Party - ⅓ of posts should be educational content by a third party.  For example you might post an alert by your State extension on a specific weed or pest that’s prevalent in your region.

 

6. Free Resources to Steal Today

As you begin or continue to use Facebook in your marketing, be sure you are taking advantage of these free resources.

  • Social Media Content Calendar: Helps you plan out your posts.

Lawn Care Marketing: Selling To The "Whole Foods" Customer

3Ways Roots Enhance-1.png

Organic isn't a fad - in fact, according to the Organic Trade Association (OTA) 82% of U.S. households buy organic with millennials representing the largest group of organic buyers in America. That many not seem like a large number to you, but consider that today 25% of millennials have families and that in 10-to-15 years, that number is expected to increase to 80%.

Can you consider how these new families will affect the consumer market - whether it's groceries, cleaning products or lawn care, buying organic matters to the millennial consumer.

You can read the rest of our blog to learn more, or watch the webinar recording below for the story. If you are reading this blog via email, click here to access the webinar recording.



Today’s Disruptive Economy

Regardless of the industry, today’s economies are being disrupted. Consider how Tesla is disrupting the traditional auto-industry. Ten years ago, few took Tesla as a car manufacturing company seriously. Compare the views of Tesla from ten-years ago to today and you get a whole different story. In fact, Tesla’s market valuation exceeded century-old titan, General Motors in 2017 by $1Million Dollars. Earlier this year, reports stated that the Tesla Model S outsold the luxury flagships of Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi in Europe for the first time.

In the green industry, robots are starting to be disruptive and have the potential to displace labor. Last year, the manufacturers of Roomba announced a solar-powered, weed eating machine dubbed the “Tertill” for presale on Kickstarter. While the first or second model of the Tertill may not function 100%, in a few years it’s our firm belief that devices like the Tertill will be commonplace.

It’s important to pay attention to innovation in and outside of our industry in order to outcompete the competition.


The “Whole Foods” Customer

Additional innovation is happening in our industry when it comes to the technologies we have to create a beautiful, green, weed-free lawn. Biologicals like Holganix Bio 800+ products (Holganix Lawn, Tree & Shrub, Bloom, Agriculture and Golf) are creating disruption by offering a better way to reach results using fewer chemicals. That innovation is being disruptive because there is a need to not only be more sustainable for the environment but because the customer is demanding it.

That customer could be called the Millennial but for this presentation we are widening that demographic to include anyone who would potentially shop at a "Whole Foods"-type of grocery store. These consumers are demanding that today’s businesses use sustainable products.

According to a report by Satista, the organic product industry in the U.S. is worth 26.7 billion dollars. This translates to us in lawn care as well. The millennials are going to be our consumers and if we take a look at the trends of this group of people it is going more and more organic. 82% of U.S. households are buying organic items already and 30% of those purchasing organic do so to avoid fertilizers and pesticides. Don’t you think that diversion from fertilizers and pesticides can translate to their lawn care services as well?

5 Facts about the (2).png


Get Credit For What You Do

One way to combat the disruptive economy is through your company’s “why.”  A customer is more likely to use your product if you have a “remarkable message” on why you do what you do. If you are using Holganix products, it’s important to tell your customers and prospects that you are doing something different and get credit for the steps you are taking to meet customer demand and do good for their plants, family and the environment.

Let’s look at a few examples that are currently using the “Holganix message” of using environmentally friendly lawn care products to build a green, weed-free lawn.


UltraGreen Lawn Care

UltraGreen Lawn Care allows the “Holganix message” to do their marketing for them! In any marketing or sales piece they create, UltraGreen, ensure they include the organic, environmental message to sell their product. Because they took advantage of the Holganix message, UltraGreen grew from 0 to 7,000 customers in just four years and saw a 15-to-20% savings on material costs! 

 

PureGreen

According to PureGreen Lawn Care owner, Nathan Brandon, “over the last ten years, I have really noticed that more and more of my customers are requesting organic services.” He latched onto this trend and changed his messaging to focus on communicating how PureGreen is responsible for the environment and how their customers play an important role in that mission.

According to Rob McCoy, Holganix sales manager, “This is giving people a purpose beyond what their lawn care choice is, and this message has really helped sell the product!”


Tomlinson Bomberger: Lawn Care Landscape & Pest Control

When Tomlinson Bomberger decided to start using Holganix products they designed the “Soil Smart Lawn Care Program”. Each time they get a new customer or lead they offered the customer the ability to either choose the “Traditional” lawn care program or the “Soil Smart” lawn care program. The Soil Smart program was roughly 20% more expensive than their standard program but incorporated Holganix products and thereby offered a more environmentally friendly solution. According to Tomlinson Bomberger, the Soil Smart lawn care program is their fastest growing program yet!


Using Holganix Products and Want to Get Credit For What You Do?

We’ve created multiple marketing tools to help you better communicate why your lawn care program is better than the competition because you use Holganix. The Holganix Launch Box is our most popular tool - it contains a multitude of both print and digital marketing pieces to help you grow your business.

What is Holganix?

At Holganix we want to revolutionize the way the world grows by focusing on biology as the solution to soil and plant health. We have noticed that lawn care needs a good foundation in the soil and roots to really focus on plant health and to produce a happy customer. That is why our line of products uses living biology to nurture soils and ultimately create a stronger and healthier looking lawn!

Humus – The Essential Ingredient

Humus is what is left after soil microorganisms have decomposed organic matter. It holds nutrients and moisture and provides a great structure for planting in. Humus is essential for food production and is being gradually depleted. Learn more in Graeme Sait’s TED Talk.

 

Healthy Soil, Healthy World 

If you pick up a handful of soil, you will be holding more microorganisms in your hand than the entire number of people who have ever lived on earth. Think about that for a moment. Can you imagine the quantity of living things in your grasp? Soil is FULL of life. In this TED Talk you’ll have the opportunity to explore the soil from a microorganisms’ point of view.

 

Putting Carbon Back Where It Belongs

Good news! Plants can quite literally change the face of the earth. By growing more plants, we can capture more carbon dioxide, water, production, biodiversity and profit? In fact, a 1% change in soil organic matter across just one quarter of the world’s land area could sequester 300 billion tons of physical C02. Check out Tony Lovell’s TED Talk here.

 

Stop Treating Our Soil Like Dirt!

Healthy soil is not dirt! Healthy soils are critical for keeping water clean producing food and buffering the effects of extreme weather. Soil plays a fundamental role in our lives in three key ways… Watch Karen Wynne’s TED Talk here.

 

Soil – From Dirt To Lifetime 

Did you know there are more living organisms beneath the soil then there are above it? Soil scientists can’t even come to an agreement about how many microbes are actually in the soil. Check out Fred Kirshenmann’s TED Talk here.

Getting Strategic about 2017 Growth

AdobeStock_130941605.jpeg

After a short winter, anticipation for the start of spring is thick. Many of us are itching to get back on the properties and begin normal maintenance operations. The marketing and sales machines are moving. Early telemarketing campaigns have begun and post cards are already starting to go out the door. However, before full-blown spring chaos is upon us, it’s important to slow down and really think about growth strategies for 2017.

Scottish author and historian Thomas Carlyle once stated, “A man without a goal is like a ship without a rudder.” In other words, don’t confuse being busy with real growth. How do you know you’re moving business growth in the right direction without a rudder, or goal, to guide you?

 

Setting clear, measurable growth goals

“Step one for 2017 needs to start with setting a clear, measurable growth goal,” says Barrett Ersek, CEO of Holganix and former lawn care company owner.

“Once your growth goal is made, creating a plan with actionable, clear and measurable objectives is key to ensure you reach your goal.”

For most of us, starting with the marketing and sales plan is key to hatching the appropriate marketing and sales campaigns to reach revenue goals.

 

A tool to help plan

That’s one of the reasons why Holganix has brought back its acclaimed webinar, “Building Your 2017 Marketing Plan for lawn and landscape professionals. To date, we have a webinar scheduled for February 21 at 5:00 PM ET (Register here).

Attendees will set revenue goals for 2017 and break down campaigns needed to reach that revenue goal.

According to Nathan Brandon of Pure Green in Nashville, Tennessee, working on his marketing plan with Holganix’s marketing department has been a contributing factor to helping him stay focused on growth objectives. Nathan started his business in year-end 2013 and grew to 500 customers by December 2014, just 12 months later.

Shar McLaughlin from Irish Green Lawn Care attended the webinar in early January. According to Shar, “The 2017 Marketing Plan webinar has been a tremendous help to me in scaling my business. As a die-hard goal setter and planner, this is the most detailed plan I have used. I attended the webinar twice! Only one month in, but so far we have hit all our goals.”

Seven Ways Holganix Grows Your Lawn and Landscape Business

Did you know Holganix helps grow your lawn and landscape business?

We are passionate about sustainable GROWTH! And to us, growth means more than just growing plants. It also means the growth of businesses – ours and YOURS! Here are seven ways Holganix helps grow your business.

Grow business.jpeg

 

Holganix differentiates your business

In lawn care, you don’t have to just compete on price. In fact, if you rely on LOW prices as your mechanism for growth, you could seriously damage the health of your company. Going up against national lawn care companies that have buying power with reduced costs associated with treating lawns is a big NO!

Instead of competing on price, show your market what makes you special! Grow DIFFERENT!

When you use Holganix, you reduce your synthetic inputs by 50 to 75%. Reducing inputs allows you to market your company uniquely against your synthetic wielding competitors.

 

Combat the growing green movement and government regulations

Going green doesn’t just help differentiate your business, it also allows you to offer a service that sustainably minded homeowners desire.

Do your customers really care about organic services? You bet they do! According to Statista, in 2013, the United States was the world’s largest market for organic products. In fact, it was a $26,700,000,000 market. Your customers want organics; why not offer them?

Screen Shot 2017-01-11 at 2.09.48 PM.png

Consumers aren’t the only ones thinking organically, so is the government. With government regulations around the use of synthetic products increasing, you can escape the noose by going green.

 

Increase productivity with LOGISTICS

If you use liquid fertilizers, it could take your technicians up to 45 minutes to fill a truck with product! Because of the Holganix RAD (Refrigerated Automated Dispensing System) and other equipment offered by Holganix, lawn care companies are able to fill their trucks on average in 12 minutes!

 

Reduce customer call backs

By using Holganix, you are nurturing healthy plants. Healthier plants mean less call backs and less money wasted!

Learn about the seven ways Holganix grows healthier plants here.

 

Reduce reliance on UREA pricing

Fertilizer costs associated with urea may be low now, but they won’t be forever. By using Holganix, you reduce the use of urea fertilizer by 50 to 75%. Why rely upon urea pricing and a finicky market when you can control your cost of doing business with Holganix?
