Getting appointments with busy people can be a difficult and trying task. But, using Maple Ridge Farm's Jelly Bean Dispenser, a distributor in the Midwest found a creative way.
Case history: Tired of being ignored by busy purchasing and marketing people at a large auto manufacturer, a local distributor came up with a creative way to get invited in any time she wanted. Using the Jelly Bean Dispenser, she put one at the receptionists' desk, one in the general area in purchasing, and one in marketing. She shows up to "just fill the jelly bean dispensers", and gets waved through by the receptionist. Once in purchasing and marketing, she usually winds up spending half a day working with the people that formerly wouldn't return her calls.
One last idea, from Maple Ridge Farms: We offer small, non-imprinted gift boxes (SR 101 to SR 171) with a wide variety of food available. Pre-sell your customer on using these as follow up gifts after first appointments, referrals, or first or large orders. Just have them send you the addresses on a regular basis, and we'll do the rest. We can even imprint a card for them if they'd like. We'll drop ship the boxes directly to the recipient for a tasty "Thank You"!
