Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. I survived chaperoning my daughters’ 17th birthday party. We rented out a clubhouse for the 30+ guests and half way through the party, I realized this was a missed opportunity. It would have been so easy to put together a “promotional bag” regarding my homemade soaps, brand new blog, and upcoming launch of my websites, a special coupon, and a sample-sized bar of soap to give out to all the guests, including parents that stayed and enjoyed the night with us.
This made me reflect back on other opportunities I may have missed and how I can prepare myself not to miss another chance to promote myself. I decided that these promotional bags should be available for me to grab for any opportunity at any time. I have plans to make fifty or so bags to have on hand – this way I can just grab and go. I am confidante that this plan will help turn more missed opportunities into promotionally opportunities.
