On occasion I have offered to mow a lawn free or at a bargain price when I have considerable uncertainty about how long a lawn will take to mow and I really want it. I'd rather eat a few dollars once than over and over. Over time I can usually get my time down 15% to 20% from what my first mow was, but I price it based on that first mow anyway. I've never offered a "foot in the door" discount...it's always been a case-by-case decision. I think I've gotten every one of those jobs....they get to see my work and I get to price it based on real data rather than an estimate.
