Last week, something amazing happened to me.
I went out to check my mailbox. But when I opened it up, I had to stop and do a double take. Because there was an envelope with a blown-up image of my new book, Bulletproof. The one I had just published a day or two before.
Needless to say, I ripped it open immediately.
And here’s what I found inside:
It was a card.
From a friend of mine named Jim Packard — a serial entrepreneur I’ve always admired, particularly for his ability to build tribes of loyal followers.
He was congratulating me on the launch of my new book.
And there was also a friendly invitation, to call him when I got this card so we could catch up and talk shop. An invitation that I accepted immediately.
I called Jim right then and there.
More than anything I was curious. How did he do this? I mean, this card looked “high-end” and professional. The kind you might buy in a store.
It turns out, Jim had used a service called Banner Season.
It’s for sales professionals, entrepreneurs, and, really, anyone whose business depends on being able to nurture a network of people who know, like, and trust them.
It’s an online service that lets you send thoughtful and personalized cards and gifts to your contacts with just a few clicks.
I signed up right away.
What I love about Banner Season is how easy it makes all this.
Most of us know how much impact you can create by sending a card or a thoughtful gift to someone. Often, it can be THE thing that gets your foot in the door or finally helps you clinch that elusive deal.
Yet, so few sales professionals use this tool.
Because, let’s face it — it takes time to go out and find a thoughtful card or gift, take it home and package it up, and then take it to the post office.
And now that we can’t leave our homes, it’s even harder.
Banner Season lets you send personalized cards and gifts with just a few clicks. In fact, you don’t even need to be on a computer. You can do it from your smartphone.
As you know, I’m all about giving my readers an advantage.
Especially in these dark and difficult times.
That’s why I wanted to tell you about this service.
I have a lot of ideas for how you can use something like this to build up your network over the next month or two — so that when the shutdown ends and you go back to the office, your pipeline is stuffed full of new opportunity. And I’m going to share them with you over the coming week.
