I met Bridges years ago, and we have seen each other on and off. We reconnected this spring at an amazing invitation-only women's group, Women At The Top. Bridges' enthusiasm for life is amazing!
In WATT, we often will share our business development ideas or get feedback on projects we are working on. As I shared Random Acts of Flowers with the group, Bridges immediately caught the idea. She wanted to treat it a bit more strategically as she had received a number of referrals lately for Get Organized with Bridges. She also had recently started bringing estate sales under her umbrella of services. She was looking for a meaningful and creative way to thank those who referred the business to her.
Bridges' goals for her gifts:
Carrie Leary with Schuster Print Marketing facilitated the logo-imprinted mug, and we sourced and designed the arrangements.
For her design, we were inspired by her logo and sourced long-lasting flowers in bright colors, featuring movement. And here we are! Her ' Branded Floral Design' is shown here, and is a design she can refer to over and over again.
We are holding the rest of her mugs at our studio, with her imprinted cards for a personalized message, for the next referrals that come her way.
What fun to bring life, energy, and happiness into business relationships!
p.s. 2019 update: Bridges reports that her clients and referral sources are thrilled with the gifts. Her clients feel more connection to her, and she has seen more business come her way because of them.
Branded Floral Designs are available to our Floral Concierge Members only.
How one small business owner transformed her gift-giving experience from painful to exciting. When you want to express appreciation to a client, your attention to detail makes all the difference, and making wise choices about the quality of your gift, and whether you have time and talent to achieve the intended effect, or whether you want to reach out to a professional.
When we remember our Moms, sometimes in their luxurious beauty, they seem like exotic creatures. Then at other times they are really down to earth and taking daily life in stride. Many people might have only seen one side of them or the other and not realized how interesting and amazing they are. As we grow up, our Moms reveal their multifaceted personalities and their amazing, intoxicating, comforting presence.
