Incentives and discounts

As we gear up for 2013 I'd love to talk about incentives. As it stands I give a customer referral discount of anyone that passes my name on. I base it on the amount of money generated by the lead.

I also do a 5% prepay discount for anyone who wishes to pay up front.

I'm also going through my list and raising some prices where I need too. So I was thinking about other ways to attract customers.

Thought about a discount if anyone adds apps to their mowing package? Maybe 5% here and raise prepay to 7%? They could pick one or the other

What about a discount for adding optional services like grub, lime, or fungicides? I offer a preventative fungicide and grub program that might encourage people to sign up n

I feel that I offer affordable services and would love to build a business and reputation on that basis.

I give senior / veterans and referral discounts. But I thought about discounts for more of my services, then I sit back and think I'm in business to make money. I try to help people the most but then they take advantage of me thinking that everything I do they deserve a disount or a break. I know it may sound rude but I just stick to my normal discounts. I looked at it this way. When a cop asks " do I get a discount for being a cop ". I simply say with a smile, " if you pull me over and mention I'm a landscaper are you gonna give me a break " he's says nope. Well there's your answer. I come from a family of police and myself being a former firemen and veteran. I appreciate the service but again I'm in business to make money.
