    I was wondering if any of you offer the pre pay on things like aerating & slit seeding. Last year i included fall aerating as part of the program. I feel like i was giving to much away, so this year the discount is now 7% on my application program only.NOT on services like aerating. Any thoughts?

    I also Offer Fire Ant Control and offer the prepay discount on that as well.I only give a 5% discount for prepaid services to begin with so with what I charge for the Fire Ants,I'm still not giving away the farm. I think it may depend on how you price your add-ons. To me your regular apps are your meat and potatos. Add-ons are your gravy. Sop it up when and where you can!
