e-Signatures

Posted by Dhea on June 10, 2009

Hi all

In a recent debate about e-signatures with a few “lay-people” who feel a few friends email signature is too much or not necessary.  Is there any real issue with promoting your business on every email communication or should you go to the effort to modify your signature or delete it all together?

What do you think?

Referrals are the best compliment we can receive.

Posted by Dhea on June 6, 2009

Hi all

As many of us know if we love something we just have to tell everyone about it and encourage our friends to consider. The power of the word of mouth is often considered better than some forms of advertising. Imagine if you received a referral everyday.. Imagine picking up the phone and hearing “Hello my girlfriend suggested I contact you for this bag that I am looking for….” or “I would like to join your company as my girlfriend suggested it would be perfect for me…” or “I would love to book a party with you as I couldn’t make it to my girlfriends but they all had fun and I would like to host one…”… Every time I receive any sort of referral like that I feel blessed and grateful that the client has picked up the phone and called me However I am ever more grateful to the client who suggested me to her friend… Think about the power of this.

What do you do to ask or encourage referrals for your business?

Think about it
