From my post it says this guy is temporary as I can't employ him full time. So he isn't going to be a full time employee. If I get in a pinch I might call him and ask for some help.

What he would be doing would be working commission only. Maybe he talks to some business owners or a neighbor.

From my view, I would gladly pay him a small commission if he called me and said... "call Ms. smith. she wants to talk about her lawn." So my guy has already sold her on considering a change and more than likely spoke highly of me. All I got to do is go meet her and give her a price. If my prices are competitive it's probably a sure thing.

It would be very similar to a customer passing your name on to a friend. I give that customer a discount.

So maybe you guys don't pay for referrals, but seems like a cheap way to get new business to me. It would target a specific market and only customers that I want and is a lot cheaper than a round of mailers.

Thanks for the input.
