I attended an amazing Power Core meeting today!  I was a guest of one of my clients.

Lots of talking, lots of (very short!) business presentations.  This group is in the business of referral marketing in a big way.  Even as a guest, I walked away with four referrals for business.

I also walked away with a small stack of business cards as new contacts.  Nothing particularly special about that – you can pick up business cards anywhere.  But, if I follow up quickly, these people might actually remember me from the meeting.

So, I finally had a chance to sit down to send out some cards to them. After sending a few initial contact e-mails, I sent out four thank you cards to people from the meeting who particularly helped – either inviting me, giving me a referral, or answering a bunch of questions.  With Send Out Cards, I was able to sit down at the computer, draft four entirely unique messages on four entirely unique cards, and have them sent by REAL mail to these business contacts.  But I didn’t have any thank you cards at home.  It was all through the computer.  I’m hoping for a positive impression through those cards to these influential networking people.  I’m excited that I’m able to do it so easily!!
