    Does anyone give away mowing for new account sign-ups or referrals from customers for new accounts??
    There's a Craigslist ad in my area for 2 free mowings for signing on with a new account and another free mowing for each referral???

    Seems as if the customer gets ambitious he can get a free season's mowing...

    Any pros or cons to this type of incentive??

    1 free mow with signed year contract - $5 referral reward towards next billing for each referral from current customers is what I offer.

    I have a flyer that has a coupon on it for 1 free mowing when you have paid for 6 (sign up for the season) new customers only

    Hi
    What type of stipulation do you have on contract, 30 days if they don't wont you anymore??

    I'm offering, 25 dollars of months invoice, if referral signs for season.

    Do you mean you are asking for pre-payment of 6 mowings as incentive for a free one with a seasonal sign-up?

    Free for the whole season or one free mow? (can't be for the season, because that defeats the whole referral thing)
