Who’s Calling Please?

June 24, 2010 § 1 Comment

One thing I get a little worked up about is cold calling. Not that this makes me all that special– I’d be willing to bet there are quite a few other people in the world who also kind of hate doing this.

How. Ever. Kind of hating to do it is not a good reason not to, espesh after all the success I had growing our Florist Network for Commemorate the Date yesterday. I might be converted.

After a few weeks of tip-toeing around and begging florists to weigh in on our commission arrangement via e-mail I realized (in a huff) that I was going to have to take matters into my own hands. I needed to get in their faces, pretend I was brave and tell them exactly what we had to offer. I mean, for Pete’s sake!  Do you want 25 bucks or not?

It turns out, they do want 25 bucks. Or at least they say they do to my face. So, while I’ll concede that some of these friendly florists might have chucked our cards in the trash as soon as I walked out the door, some of them did not. Now, we’re getting somewhere.

    Great work Hadley! Hey … next time I see you, bring me some more commemorate the date cards and I’ll pass them along to a friend of mine who’s a florist. I don’t know why I didn’t think of that sooner …
