It Pays to Network

babylaughIn July on my Redhead Marketing Blog (article Catalog Marketing Successes and Challenges) I mentioned the Florida Direct Marketing Association luncheon I attended and the two women who spoke.  Leslie Linevsky, Co-Founder of Catalogs.com and Bonnie Levengood, Director of Marketing with 1-800-PetMeds were the speakers.

I introduced myself to both speakers, gave my card and went to work.  Later that week decided to send them flowers to again thank them for their presentations as I really learned alot from them. And Leslie mentioned her company may be needing flowers for an event soon.  Last week Leslie wrote a post called Flower Power on her blog about her experience with the event and also the flowers Eden Florist sent her . 

Here’s an excerpt:

“Imagine my surprise a few days later when I received an exquisite arrangement of burnt orange colored roses at work … All I can say is, what a smart business move by a savvy entrepreneur to hopefully obtain a chance to bid on an upcoming function. Sometimes you have to go the extra mile past handing someone a business card. Take a cue from Heidi and flower future employers or customers with a little extra something that sets you apart from the rest.”
