I had thought about something, but i dont knwo if it has already been discused of not.

What about $25 gift cards to restraunts(TGIF, Longhorns, Outback, Steak Houses, and more) when friends, family or current clients refer you to new customers on a years term. that way its a way of saying "thank you" and free food to them<**- cant turn down free food,lol

Also i thought about having the business name advertised on the gift card, i am not sure if that can be done or not, it would be another way to get the name out,,, any suggestions

new customer , on a years term would be if done bi-weekly($1,080) or which ever way... your expense would be $25


didnt know if this would be a good idea or not if so what would be a good way to market this on myspace or any other marketing ways?

i had posted this in another thread, so i had deleted it

Matt,

I think you got some good ideas there.

Did you happen to see this postcard that Bob from Plan-It Graphics sent out? Also check out this post.

Plan-It Graphics is an unknown quantity at this point
Default

The ones above are more expensive, because I have to use a diffrent printer than I normally use. The design fee would be $150 plus printing. 500 @ $265 1000 @$320 This includes the the perforation.

If you want a less expensive idea, below is basically the same concept, done on a 4x6 postcard, however i cannot get the perforation on these. Thats why is says "CUT along dotted line." You can however find a local printing company, and if they have a perforating machine you could have them do it for you. I had a customer do this before.

As with all of my designs, they are only to give you ideas. If instead of the money or visa git cards, you wanted to give Home Depot gift cards, I can design the postcards to show that.

Bob
