After talking about this business idea for years, Cindy and Dawn began moving toward their long-held vision of helping their communities through a unique and effective form of marketing: bold advertising that would incorporate a personal touch. Visually-appealing gifts and gift certificates from local business owners would be delivered to new home owners in the area. The strategy would go above and beyond any standard form of advertising and would bring new customers in the doors of participating businesses. Free prime rib dinners, free hair cut & color, free bowling for six – with shoes, a large pizza and pitcher of soda. This approach would be based on building relationships—the foundation of effective sales strategies. This vision would also carry them to the non-profit groups, enlisting the help of these two goodwill mavericks in delivering organizations’ needs and volunteer information to new residents. This service would be provided at no cost to the group, and would bear the hope that newcomers (while unpacking in their new homes) might consider donating unwanted items or volunteering some time to their community non-for-profit organizations.
