    Well, another year in the books and just received 15 xmas cards from my customers w/ cash in them:blob1:, $300.00. I went out and bought my xmas present, a sirius satellite radio with a boombox.
    Have anybody receive any present from your customer?.

    No gifts or cash here....but a renewal w/ rate increase in January is even better.

    A $25 gift certificate? I would be broke if I did that for all 300 of my customers.:confused:

    I have about 10customers, most are property managers whose large accounts I service. I just spent $250, I don't feel that is too much when you gross 50K/year. Since you have 300, I understand (do you personally know all 300 customers?)

    I have one guy who sends me a $50 gift card to Outback or Chili's or something every year. Postage stamp sized yard at $40.00 a shot year round but he never has to worry about the HOA. That's the way it's supposed to be.payup

    I always send my customers christmas cards, and also potential customers that I have started marketing to. Everytime they think of your name and biz is a great oppertunity.
