Has anyone played around with paypal? I am just messing around with it and I noticed you can have a buy a gift certificate button. Wouldnt that be great if you could sell gift certificates on your website for lawn care and holiday lighting?
"Give someone the gift of holiday cheer by purchasing one of our holiday decoration gift certificates!" Then you could show what you charge on average for specific services. A family member or friend could purchase a gift certificate for you to hang some lights or a hang a wreath or whatever!
Another thing I was thinking was you could have $50 holiday decoration gift cards made and hand them out to your friends and family for free. You could give a bunch out to each person you know for them to give out as gifts.
Then maybe what you could do is offer your outdoor holiday decoration services but have a minimum of $400 for a job.
The gift card holder would still get a value and you would get work you might not have gotten.
