who has a referral program for clients?

So i've been taking on projects, live and studio, with a few poets.

Its pretty fun work actually, and a totally different vibe from recording a band.
Quiet Mic, Quiet Pre, good atmosphere.... occasionally have to produce a beat or some ambient wierdness for background music, but i produced a ton of electronic music 12"'s over the last 4 years so i really don't mind doing that stuff.

Anyways, the poetry community here is very close knit. I did a 'demo' at a coffeehouse reading a few months ago. Basically just recorded an open mic night, and gave playback in the headphones to a few poets. There were like 9 poets there and 2 of them have booked time with me for rather involved projects.

I'm wanting to get more poets in because
A) its fun
B) its refreshing
C) i'll be honest... its easy work.

So i've been thinking of implementing a referral program to kind of throw that into high gear.

What are your thoughts on referral programs? Are they worth it? Do the discounts galvanize income? If you use a referral program, how is yours set up?

I have set up a referral deal with the main poet, who basically hosts the major readings here and knows every poet in town. Its set up as 20% off a live session (up to 2 hours) or studio session (up to 8 hours), per referral. And multipliable... i.e. 5 referrals = free session.

I'm wondering if i should extend this to other poets, or not.

really would like to know what you folks think...
