I have had a policy for the last 4 years that referrals earn a customer free mowings.<br>My stipulations are that if a cust. gives me a ref. & they sign on, then I will give them 1 free mowing after I have mowed the referral 3 times- Eliminates those who'd refer people & then they'd quit after they got a free mowing.<br>Works out in a # of ways. A friends referral will always outweigh someone picking you out of the yell. pgs. <br>Second, alot of times they'll refer neighbors, which means more lawns right where you're already at. No driving across town for 1 lawn. If people like your work enough, it can snowball. My first year I ended up with 5 lawns on the same cul-de-sac.<br>Plus, once they figure it out, they can work towards free mowings all the time- who wouldn't want that?<p>----------<br>Smitty ô¿ô<br>
