What a great day!!! Eight business people coming together to share a lunch that had a strategically random flavour. How did this happen? I am always trying to think of new ways to market my business - events that pack a little punch and are more than a sharing of business cards. A way to build a relationship.
Like the quote "A rising tide lifts all boats!" I enjoy sharing the glory and getting in one another's slip stream.
Good food, good people and an opportunity to showcase what you do.
I took out my LIST of inspiring business people and I drew random names until I had a group of eight. That's a good number for lunch. Everyone said yes when invited and that was the start of our first month of #LetsEatTogether and #CreativeMarketing.
We shared stories of how we ended up in this business place. We talked about our big plans, the importance of jumping in with both feet, the hustle and grind and we laughed. We really did laugh especially when stories were shared about......oh you had to be there.
Somewhere near the end someone said "What about our business cards?"
Oh ya, we had so much fun that we forgot to share those. Isn't that novel? We spent so much time building relationships that we forgot to try and make a sale.
In February we will do it all over again - I love meeting new people.
How do you get creative with your marketing? What do you have in mind for 2018? I'd love to hear all about it!
