Name Your Poison Day, June 8, 2023 (In-Person Connection)

In the mid-19th century, liquor was jocularly referred to as “poison.”  At a bar, patrons were often asked to “name your poison.”  This day, however, can be celebrated with a wide variety of “poisons” – ice cream, coffee, adult beverages, etc. Invite a past client or SOI to join you at a local shop serving their preferred “poison.”  Before you part ways, let them know you appreciate them referring new business to you. Make sure to give them 2-3 business cards to pass along.

You and your referrals are INK-credible! Create gift bags with ballpoint pens (branded if you have them). Attach a tag and your business card.

Birthdays and Anniversaries (Snail Mail)

  • For your Power Sphere (those past clients and SOI members who will definitely refer business to you), track special dates, such as birthdays and anniversaries.
  • Keep a supply of cards on hand.
  • During slow time periods, consider assembling the cards/envelopes, pre-addressing, and stamping, so that all you need to do is drop by the post office 1 week before the special date to mail the card.
  • If the card lends itself to including a gift, add something small and fun.  Example: If your card says, “It’s Your Birthday…Go NUTS!”, gift a bag of mixed nuts.

National Smoothie Day, June 21, 2023 (In-Person Connection)

Call a past client or SOI member and suggest getting together at the local smoothie shop for National Smoothie Day. This can be a 15-30 minute get-together to catch up. At the end, make sure to let them know that you appreciate referrals. Provide them with a few business cards to hand out.
