40 Ways to Use Lawn Care & Landscaping Videos (So They Actually Get Noticed)

Chad Diller


About 15 years ago, a “RotoZip” saw was on my Christmas wishlist. I just had to have it.

My wife and I were friends for an excruciating period of time until I got the first date.

Or, if the videos aren’t great...they can have a very unfortunate effect.

Prospective customers can raise their critical eyebrows and wonder why you would ever create a video so cringe-worthy. 

Job seekers can be unimpressed and turned off. 

In the mind of that ideal prospect or job recruit, you’ve suddenly lost all credibility.
