I agree that offering money to your clients doesn’t feel right. A proactive method is to give your client extra copies of their DVD as ‘gift’ from you to give all their friends. Most likely many of their friends are not married and you get similiar results if you were paying them to go out and advertise for you.
One thing that has helped me with photographers is to give them my demo before we shoot together so they can see that I do a great job and my time is well spent at the wedding and that the client is expecting an incredible video. And then when the wedding is over I send them a copy of the final DVD. I’ve been amazed at how many photographers will show that DVD to future clients that come into their studio. Of course, you are going to get wackos no matter what you do!
