I'm thinking about putting together an idea for potential clients to commit for a full season of lawn mowing. It's kind or risky but the plan was to promote a full season of free lawn mowing. With a signed agreement the new customer is entered in a drawing at the end of the year, to recieve free lawn mowing for next year. Customer must be paid in full to be eligible for the drawing. We have about 24 cuts a year and the maximum payout would be based on a $30 a week account. Anything over that the customer would have to pay the difference. ie. $45 a cut the customer would be billed $60 per month. As an added incentive for additional work any extras the client wanted that required $100 or more in labor would enter them a second time in the drawing. I have thought about this for the last few years now, and I'm still not sure I am going to actually do it. Seems like people respond to free or chances of winning something. Other companies give stuff away as marketing tools so it must work. Keep in mind I would be giving away about $720 worth of mowing and thats a lot. I would hope that the winner would want extras considering they dont have a mowing bill and this would make up part of the cost. I know I will probably get slammed for this post but thought I would throw it out there anyway.
