Sometime in the not too distant future, I expect my real world business to have a lull....thanks to this crappy economy. Knock on wood....I'm fortunate that it didn't happen over a year ago.
When it hits, I'll deal with it by launching an Internet services business.
Anyhow, when I'm in the thinking big mode, i'm trying to come up with ways to get to the really big cats....the CEO's and Presidents of decent sized businesses.....especially if it is some type of chain or franchise.
These people are virtually unreachable.....
On occasion, you meet some of these people unepectedly by accident.....and sometimes you can get a quick handshake at some business function or social gathering.
For those times that it's only appropriate to get an intro and handshake, you can say anything you want on a USB flash drive.
Not just any drive, you can get them in a business card form, imprinted however you want.
I see them for $5-6.00 ea....mimimum 100
If you give one of these at a social function, they'll also show it to everyone around them (other big timers) and there's a reeeeally good chance it will get plugged in.
Many years ago when I worked for someone else, I went to golf outings for a business organization of professionals that were all doing pretty good salary-wise, and they were like little kids showing off their door prizes if they were anything but golf balls.
Anyhow, just wanted give a little food for thought about a way to reach some of those impossible to reach big guns.
Don't be afraid to spend money on people that can give you major returns.
