    Hi! A local interior home cleaning company is planning on sending out raffle tickets to her clients. She has included in her raffle a very nice gift basket (full of goodies & treats) and a $100.00 gift certificate to be used towards her company cleaning business. She would like me to put something in - but I can't seem to think of what to put in - a gift certificate (say $50.00?) or a FREE service gift certificate (say residential aeration) or a buy something get something free/discounted type certificate. She does this every year and has good results from it. She has also teamed up with a lawncare company in Regina (SK, Canada) and they do the same sort of thing.

    Any help? T.

    I would say maybe for one free aeration service up to XXXX sq. ft.
    then you're in and out in about 30 minutes is all it costs you, and this is something people generally have done rather then do themselves.

    good idea though, cheap way to get your name out there
