||Are you doing this yet? ~~~ Internet Friends Goodie Bags for local meetings...
|| Hey Folks.
I've had an idea just looking around here today.
Some of you attend Chamber of Commerce meetings, Business
owner mixers, Jaycees meetings and so forth. Have you
thought of asking online friends (here at Ryze) to send
you business cards, pens, key chains or the like to build
an introduction goodie bag for meeting giveaways?
Specify a number of items, say 50 of something or a number
of how many attendees you expect from each member who wants
to advertise and build your own goodie bag to give away
with a mixture of services from PEOPLE YOU KNOW on Ryze.
With the Holidays coming up, this might be the very best
time to be assembling bags to give to potential clients IN
If you plan carefully, you could build a bag with a letter
of introduction to summarize your friends and their
services, how you met them on Ryze and so forth.
OR have each vendor write a letter of how they met YOU on
ryze and the projects you've worked together or clients
you've referred... Funny Ryze anecdotes, etc.
Holiday goodie bags are fun to make and assembling them
could be a family project. If you assemble 50 bags, you
could be ready for several meetings or a mixer party at
your own home or business.
I don't attend mixers as a rule, but I do attend PLF
(Prairie Land Food) meetings once a month here in Derby as
I am the volunteer secretary for our host site. There are
usually six to eight other volunteers in attendance and
many of those ladies have jobs or own a business in town.
It would be a pleasure to give each one a nice bag with
business information from my friends on Ryze, along with
whatever gifts I give them this holiday season.
I also attend workshops for PLF yearly where a hundred or
so folks attend.
Then there is my client base, for whom I send bags and
boxes in December or January with my AD materials as a
thank you for their business. Many of these are local.
Some of the long distance clients have never received
anything from my business, as they may not have been put on
the correct lists, and such. I hope this year to be able
to get bag/box to everyone.
Anyhowsen, local goodie bags for Ryze Friends,
What's your take on this?
