Default Referral idea.

Listen to this on the GopherHaul Lawn Care Business Podcast.


What if, instead of business cards, you had coupons printed up that were the size of dollar bills. You could hold them in your wallet and when you handed them to people, they could keep it in their wallet as well.

You could hand these out to current customers to give to their friends or to people you just meet around town.

You could add in a few conditions like they can not be combined and maybe have an expiration date, but I think it would sure beat just getting a business card. This is something, as a potential customer, you could use!

What's your view on this?

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Here is a concept you can download and use. See how they work out. You could have your wife or husband give these out too. Maybe even your employees or your kids! Heck give your entire extended family some to hand out. Get everyone into the act of promoting your lawn care business.

Download the sample here.

Anyway you can make these in psd format, so we can change what they say, price etc...that way they will be in a layer format and easy to edit in photoshop.

Maybe a jpg would help? If you do any editing that you think others could use as well, please post it.

Thanks!

May try a few for pressure washing, offer a discount or free mowing service for referrals. I dont have any luck on referrals though.

Very interesting! What kind of offer would you make for this?

Do you mean you would offer your customers a free mowing if they bring you in a referral? So ultimately you would only then hand these coupons to current customers?
