    I was thinking of giving my customers a free mowing for every referal they give me if I end up with the job. I was wondering if anyone else offers anything like this? If so how has it worked out? Thanks

    We started giving away gift certificates to local resturaunts for $20.00 for referals, we keep our business seperate from say like free mows and ect. Found gift certificates to returaunts work great!

    My dentist has always sent us a nice box of candy when we sent a referral! What a great way to get new business and keep the old ones coming back!

    One thing I meant to add on my reply was if you decide to give resturaunt gift certificates out (which worked best for me in my trial and error times) you contact the manager of the resturaunt and see if he will work with you on rebates on bulk gift certificates like we did. EVERYONE or most everyone one likes a nite out thats why this has worked best for us!
