Referal Network

I have been thinking about setting up a program almost like a rainbow vacumn dealers program. Thinking something like, Ask the homeowner for the names and numbers of 2 people that they believe could use our service, then just call those people, tell them who you are and who referred you to them and ask them if they would be interested in you coming out and setting up a bid or at least doing a demo for them. I am thinking that I could set up some type of reward program for the original homeowner, something like if the 2 people that they referred agree to service they get something, and if they refer us to 5 homeowners instead of 2 they get something bigger. Obviously needs alot of tuning but just an idea, it seems to work for the rainbow people.
Thoughts?

We offer a $50 credit to our customer if they send us someone and they sign up. It works OK.
