Now I personally have always in the past used a $25 referral credit to customers that refers a friend, family, etc. that uses my services. Now I recently saw that TruGreen has a $30 referral bonus, but this is if only the customer signs up for an annual program.

What should I use?

Use what you want to use. I almost did a $60 dollar referral bonus for the current customer and $25 towards the new customer, but I decided that was giving away too much. I'm doing $30 now with $20 to the new customer.

Just a thought.

Is there something you could give away for free like flowers or something like that? Planted or potted? Something that would be a nice gift to the person referring and to the person being referred?

Could the person referring give a free lawn analysis to their friend?

Something that wouldn't take away from profits on the core service?
