What kind of Freebies

I'll be sending out 5000-7500 direct mail post cards and possibly doing a money mailer/valpak type thing this spring. I'm going to include a freebie for both fertilization/weed control as well as lawn mowing.

I'm thinking of giving away a free fertilization/crabgrass preventer to new lawn mowing customers and a free aeration for new fert and squirt customers. The only reason I'll do the free aeration is because I'm getting a JRCO hooker aerator this spring. Both would have a 15,000 sq ft maximum so that I don't get sunk to badly.

What do you give away in your flyers/door hangers? Do you think this will work to drum up a good amount of business?

Its always good to give away freebies. Aeration is something very profitable. Dont give away that, find something else where the margins are not as good.
