    New lawn care (mowing, edging, etc - for now) business in the Belton-Raymore, MO area. Have 6 jobs at this point and now that all licenses and such are in hand would like to take on more...any and all referrals appreciated.

    If you have questions, please ask!

    Thanks so much!

    Do you use a referral system for your current customers? Right now I am offering half price cuts to any of my customers who refer a new customer to me.

    Funny you should ask...we just discussed that yesterday and yes, we will be offering something like that here very soon.

    We pick up our first round of flyers from print tomorrow...the thought for the referral system came right AFTER we finalized the order! :hammerhead: GO FIGURE...that's okay, we'll print some more!

    Hey, thanks for your reply - appreciated!

    I started a new refferal program.. I send a thank you letter to all customers and explain a few policies and also include 3 fliers for them to hand out, please in the letter it says 1 referral is $10 off next invoice and 1 referral who signs a contract is $25 cash, 5 referrals who sign contracts is 2 months free mowing. I get ALOT of referrals.
