What exactly is Lawn Mowing Online? How does this work?
LawnMowingOnline.com is unlike any other lawn mowing service. We go around the country offering lawn mowing jobs to anyone with a mower, a computer and a digital camera, and when you place a order we send the order to the mowers that are closest to your address. Whoever wants the job accepts it, mows the lawn, sends us photos and we pay them.
There's a little programming behind everything but for the most part that's it, a very simple concept, however it took digital cameras and smartphones (Thank you iPhone and Blackberry) with 24/7 instant email access reaching mainstream consumers before an idea like this could possibly work.
The best part is we're putting Americans back to work. Since anyone can register we're giving jobs to those who really need it. If they had worked for a regular lawn care business they might receive $8 or $9 an hour but here they receive double that per yard, and our mowers are given the opportunity to mow when it's convenient for them so they can have an interview or resume a full-time job at any time. Or continue mowing, it's completely open.
But we're not taking jobs away from the professionals! Quite the contrary: many professional lawn care companies use us to fill the gaps. Why would a lawn care company accept $19 a lawn instead of their usual $40+? Simple: their employees are hourly so they have to pay them regardless, so what can they do when they've run out of work for the week? Send them home? Fire someone? Instead, the companies use us to provide them with a few extra jobs a week so they can keep paying their employees. Which means many of our customers have their lawns mowed by professional lawn care companies but pay $19 instead of $40/week and signed contracts. It's a win-win for everyone!
