I was sitting around this evening trying to think of a way to increase my business for next year. I've done the flyer thing, direct mailing and coupon mailers with little success. So while sitting around I came up with an idea and wanted you folks opinion. A free; say $10, gas card for an account that signs a yearly contract. I've seen others offer a free aeration with purchase of a lawn fertilizing program or 10 % off if you sign up before a certain date and various other offers to get people to sign up but wondered if anyone else has tried this approach. Always looking for a different way than the rest to attract new accounts. Any input is greatly appreciated.
