Im looking for ideas on what i can give away to new customers for signing an annual agreement? I am trying to avoid giving away any of my services. I am more interested in giving away an actual product or maybe a gift card for a store or website.

Any ideas of what I can give away that will appeal to most clients?

Dollar value I am thinking $25 to $50 range at most.

One free hedge trimming of all the bushes in the yard during the contract commitment. Oh just saw your line about avoiding services. Maybe something like an amazon gift card or something

Funny you mentioned Amazon Gift card, that was one I thought of too. Im not sure if that would alienate older clients, but then again even my 74 yr old mother is on the net!

You could also give them the option of several different gift cards so they aren't limited to one choice.

We get a lot of referral business - $10 Starbucks card and a hand written note goes along ways.

Stay local, a gift card to a locally owned restaurant. Car service. Coffee shop etc.
Go have a talk with one of the local owners and see if you can't drum up a deal. You give your customers their business. For signing a contract. Perhaps that business can do something for you?

I'd argue you don't need to give anything away. But if you do feel the need, what has the lowest cost to you and the highest perceived value to clients? You give them a $50 gift card it costs you $50. You give them a $50 service, what does it cost you?

What type of services are you attempting to aquire?

Best suggestion. Keep your money in your pocket. Let everyone else spend theirs.
