Follow the Leader

August 25, 2010

I had an appointment this morning with the island’s former Avon Lady.  She not only placed a nice order, she directed me to one of her former, very loyal customers — who placed an order and directed me to one of her friends, who directed me to one of her friends, who directed me to one of her friends.

Not only that, but when I got home today I had a phone message asking me to call someone else who had picked up a book at the fair.  She placed an order, too!  In the last two days I have gained 5 new (ordering) customers and 6 potential customers, plus I’ve doubled my highest order to date.  Now I just need a plan to keep this momentum going.  Anyone have any ideas?

Tomorrow I am taking a book to a clerk at the grocery store and I’m giving her an extra to leave in the break room.  I’m also going to stop by the local clinic and put a couple of Avon books in their magazine piles.  I’m thinking I might do the same at the dentist’s office. Another friend said she’d put a couple on the benches in the ladies locker room at the gym. I already leave books in both the coffee shops and the laundromats.  What am I missing?
