Aerating Your Customers' Lawns

Aerating, Lawn Care, lawn

If your customers don't have the thick, lush lawns they've imagined, you can rack your brain trying to figure out the cause.  While you interrogate them about their watering practices and second guess yourself on fertilization, the problem might be a lot simpler.  It might be time to aerate.

Are there tracks in the lawn?  Are there tons of weeds despite a good fertilizer with weed prevention?  Are pests becoming a problem?  Is water pooling in the lawn after heavy rains?  Are there bare spots that you haven't been able to help?  The soil might have compacted, and it might just take a little aerating to make the lawn thrive.  If the customer has clay soil or it's a dry area, you'll need to aerate more frequently.  There's a simple and pretty unscientific way to tell when it's time to aerate.  Grab a stick.  If the soil is difficult to penetrate with the stick, you should aerate.  

You should choose a nice, clear day to aerate.  If the soil is wet, you will have a huge mess and a lot of explaining to do to customers.  You're also going to get compacted soil much more quickly if it's wet.  If it's too dry, you won't be able to penetrate the soil with an aerator.  Pay attention to the weather.  You should have nice weather for as long as possible (a week at least) after you aerate for maximum benefits.

If you don't yet have an aerator attachment for your mowers, you can rent one.  I recommend renting them before you buy one anyway.  There are different types of aerators with different features, and the best way to determine which you prefer is to try them out.  Aerators with spreaders allow the plugs (or cores) of soil to be spread throughout the lawn.  It's fine to leave them, but they should be raked to make the lawn look better right away.  If you have a lot of clay soil yards or live in a dry area, you want longer spikes on your aerator.  You also want more spikes to play the odds.  The more spikes you have, the more likely at least some will penetrate harder, dryer soils.  In particularly dry areas, it's a good idea to water a day or two before aeration, just to promote penetration.  Then simply mow in the same pattern you were going to mow anyway, with the aerator attached.

Aerating a lawn allows air, water, and nutrients to get to the roots of the grass.  It allows earthworms to move about.  Other good little organisms that take care of pests and naturally fertilize the lawn will thrive.  You'll also break through some weed roots, and the healthier lawn will have a better fighting chance against the weeds.  You'll have fewer problems with flooding, and the lawn will be more drought-tolerant.  Bare spots will fill in much better.

Right after aerating is the perfect time to overseed if you are trying to repair bare spots or filling in during fall for a green winter lawn.  By core aerating the lawn, you've perfectly prepared the soil to thrive on the seeds.  This should be done as soon as possible after aerating, and it's best to remove the pulled plugs from the lawn if you're going to seed.  It's also a great time for water to get deep into the soil in dry areas, so watering after aeration is preferable.  If it's fertilization time, it's also a good idea to aerate first if it's needed.

In hot, dry climates, you might need to aerate in summer, fall, and at the beginning of spring, depending on how dry the winter was.  Cooler weather grasses are better aerated early in fall.  They are too fragile and will recover more slowly if aerated in the summer, and fall is the perfect time to prepare them for winter.  If the soil is heavy with clay, you might need to aerate more often.  It's a good idea to keep your stick (knife, screwdriver, etc) handy to check if the soil has compacted.  

Aerating will save your customers time and money watering in the summer as their lawns will be better able to withstand drought, and they will be thrilled with their healthier, fuller lawns.  It's well worth investing in a good aerator.

Niche Marketing Secrets To Make Money Online by Patric Chan

“I can't sell information products online anymore. It's saturated." Have you heard that said?

Actually, it's common to hear that. Yeah sure ... It is somewhat true if you want to sell another eBook about sales copywriting and compete with the veteran copywriters!

But you know what -- EVERYDAY, many people are laughing all the way to the bank from making sales of info-products. You see, they are smart. They don't sell another 'Harry Potter' or 'How To Make Money' eBook when they want to start their online info-product business. They sell info-products in a niche market.

You don't believe me?

Just go to !

You'll find all kinds of info-products that you would never have imagined that people are selling and making money out of!

Here are a few examples:

·         An ebook info-product about Ipod MP3 players.
·         An ebook on how to do magic tricks.
·         An ebook on how to improve golf swings.
·         An ebook on how to improve your volley ball game.
·         An ebook about tropical fish.
·         An ebook about training Boxer Dog.

In a nutshell, I can give you 101 examples how these can all be home run, profitable products on the internet. The market for info-products will never be saturated if you know how to sell in a niche market. To be frank with you, I know it works because I have one of these sites that is making money for me while I sleep. In fact, you may be surprised to find out that some of these sites in Clickbank are actually mine!

Why niche marketing?

Niche marketing can be very profitable because you won't be competing with Internet gurus (They are busy with their own 'How To' niche) and your info-product can be highly 'targeted' to the prospects. For instance, someone who wants to start raising tropical fish at home, might order "Tropical Fish Secrets", which is an eBook in Clickbank. And the best part is, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to start an online niche business in less than a month!

Simple plan:

i. Get a niche info-product.
ii. Start a website.
iii. Drive traffic to it.

Of course, there is more to it than that, but by just by doing that... you should be able to start making money in an online niche market.

Note: Best-selling author and international speaker is now giving away his home course for just a few bucks-- discover the exact steps how you can make money with information products FASTEST POSSIBLE:

La puissance des Articles

E-éditeur et Infopreneur, abdou karim Gueye, Membre des Articles Libres, trouve souvent son inspiration dans du contenu en droit de label privé. Vous ne connaitrez plus le symptôme de la "PAGE BLANCHE", découvrez une source d'inspiration inépuisable :

 L’importance des articles pour les sites internet d’aujourd’hui, ou pour toute entreprise en ligne, est inestimable. Ils comptent pour beaucoup dans le succès et l’ampleur du trafic qu’obtiendra un site. C’est devenu un élément clé pour la réalisation d’un site, mais aussi pour générer des profits.

L’éditeur d’un site devra avoir du bon sens et y inclure des articles qui iront dans son sens afin d’en tirer tous les avantages possibles et imaginables. Les articles sont reconnus pour leur capacité à renforcer le trafic sur un site. Les articles sont la CLE  pour avoir un bon positionnement dans les moteurs de recherche. Plus un site est bien positionné, plus il génèrera du trafic. Avec plus de trafic, les profits seront plus élevés et l’on aura plus de potentiel pour développer d’autres activités qui peuvent, elles aussi, générer des revenus.

Mais il ne suffit pas de farcir votre site d’articles, ceux-ci doivent également répondre à certaines exigences. Ces exigences doivent être respectées afin d’obtenir le maximum de bénéfices qu’un article peut apporter à votre site.
Un article bien écrit captera l’attention et l’intérêt de vos lecteurs, ce qui pourra les fidéliser et les amener à visiter régulièrement votre site. Il se pourrait aussi qu’ils le recommandent à d’autres.

Maintenant, faut-il encore pouvoir rédiger à la volée des articles de qualité ?
 Il faut suffisamment d’inspiration ou de ressources, faire des recherches et regrouper tout cela pour en faire plusieurs articles.

Imaginez maintenant que cela vous soit proposé, que quelqu’un fasse ce travail à votre place et qu’il ne vous reste plus qu’à y ajouter votre touche personnelle afin de rendre ces articles vraiment uniques !

Plus de feuille qui reste blanche, plus de panne d’inspiration, il ne vous reste qu’à lire ces différents articles et à vous les approprier. Un vrai jeu d’enfant. Surtout que ce contenu sera à vous, vous pourrez le modifier tant que vous le souhaiterez et le publier autant de fois que vous voudrez, c’est ce que l’on appelle des Articles Libres, vraiment libres, car votre imagination sera votre seule limite.

How To Come Up With The Best Idea for A Product by Patric Chan

We all have problems right?

Information products are created to help solve those problems. In essence, your product created is the solution to the problem. So when there's a problem, there's an opportunity for you to make money online.

But sometimes, when you've found a problem, there's already products created to solve it. However, this does not means that you no longer have the opportunity to tap into this problem because you can make your product better, faster, cleaner, more reliable, more cost effective, better presented, you get the idea.

If you look at the bright side, it means that there are a lot of people who are willing to pay to get their
problems solved.

Don't get me wrong -- I'm not telling you to go out, buy peoples stuff, and just clone it and give it a fancy new name and change the layout a bit and sell it on. Aside from probably getting you into trouble with
copyright laws and such, it's just not practical or ethical. What I am teling you is you can take basic ideas and you can make them a better solution to a specific problem from the ground up.

Be innovative.

You'll probably find these products in's Marketplace. There are plenty of info-products for you to look through there.

No matter how weird or crazy your product creation idea seems, no matter why you think it won't work, don't give it up. Never calls it quit before you give  a deep consideration about how it can BE SUCCESSFUL. You'll never know whether that idea could be your big money-maker one day.

Open your mind a little, and don't start dismissing things on a whim because they seem impractical or  even impossible at first glance. Sometimes, it has a lot to do with your self-confidence.

Some ideas you got there, when you wrote them, they look impractical. It seems like there was no market for them or couldn't afford to create them.

Keep an open mind and don't start placing these limits on yourself before you start. Once we remove those limits, the ideas will start flowing. Start recording them. One of them may well be the next big thing in your field of expertise. Sort out the good from the not so good ideas later.

Then, evaluate your ideas.

It's hard to start creating an info-product, but once you settle into this idea of bringing new concepts to the
front of your mind and exploring them, you'll see that things will become possible and you'll never run
out of ideas for new products.

There are 4 types of formats you can use to create an info-product. Four of them are ebook, software, audio and video types of info-products. The easiest and fastest way is to record an audio product. Then, transcript it and you'll have the ebook version product immediately.

If you can't create an audio product by yourself, interview an expert in your niche market. I'm sure
many people would want to learn from him.

Come to think of it, it'll be such a waste if you don't create your own product after reading this article simply because you have nothing to lose.

Here's Your License to Print Money...

If you want to learn how to do something, find someone who's a mind-blowing expert at it, and then make them spill all their secrets to you.

Do you want to make money online?

In fact, do you want to make money on demand, whenever you want?

Because I've found someone who does EXACTLY that .and I'll bet you've heard of this guy, too. His name is Ewen Chia, and he is THE affiliate every marketer wants promoting their products, because whatever he promotes, he sells a TON of. Now he's ready to spill his guts and tell YOU how he does it. Ewen has even promised to hold NOTHING back.

In fact, he's going to give you his PROVEN, step-by-step secret system that will have you generating massive cash in just a few days from now and he's backing his bold claim with his GUARANTEE that you'll make a fortune or you get your money back.

His system has been a secret until now, but he's going to reveal it all to you in a way that you can use to start seeing results almost immediately even if you're just starting out!

Does all of this sound a little too fantastic?

It goes back to what I was saying if you want to learn how to do something, find someone who's already doing it, and then just do what they do. If you find a great tasting cake, ask the baker how he made it. Follow his recipe, and you'll have your own cake that tastes just as sweet. Makes sense, doesn't it?

And once you've got the recipe, you can bake as many cakes, (or in this case, sell as many products) as you want, forever and ever!

The secret is in having the "recipe."

Ewen Chia is the world's number one "Super-Affiliate."

So how does Ewen make hundreds of thousands of dollars EVERY MONTH?

He has his own system that took 10 years of trial and error, research and testing to develop. He's perfected his system down to the last detail. And he reveals EVERYTHING to you in "Super-Affiliates, The Easiest Way to Make a Fortune From Other People's Products."

You could, of course, try to discover every secret Ewen knows through your own hard work, small successes and big mistakes,  Or you could simply do what Ewen does, and start cashing those checks...

Abdou Karim and SOFthinking

P.S. So what is a "Super-Affiliate" and why would you want to become one?

Super affiliates have hyper-responsive lists. They can sell tons of copies of a single product. So product creators will literally BEG a super-affiliate to promote their products...and hand them extra large commissions and incentives to do so!

Now here's a secret... it actually takes LESS effort to be a super affiliate than a regular affiliate, when you know what you're doing. And Ewen will take you by the hand to build YOUR super affiliate business from absolute scratch. Plus he's agreed to CONTINUALLY hand you more money-crunching affiliate strategies every step of the way.
