Last year was a phenomenal year here at Decor Girl. We could not have logged the travel miles, met new and exciting people, learned about new products, delighted in new experiences and expanded our design and lifestyle knowledge without the participation of our sponsors. Seriously in 2013 it is quite possible I met, had I ever kept track, more new people than ever before in my entire existence. Totally cool.
Sponsors not only offer the opportunity to expand one’s product knowledge but a chance to build a relationship and learn from others. With so many products out there, it is much easier to specify something from a company one actually knows about and has a relationship with. It becomes automatic.
However, for us to endorse or recommend any product or sponsor they have to meet our rigid expectations first.
Life is sales no matter who you are, but this doesn’t mean phony, stagnant, cold or impersonal. Relationships are the key component to anything. Someone once said, one doesn’t by a product as much as they buy people. Don’t you want to buy from someone you like or know?
Having learned about their products and gotten to know the people, these companies make products I would reach into my own wallet for, one of my guidelines.
Just how does one say thank-you? Food or Wine? Both nice but this has been done before. Yawn…
Saying thank-you, sending a note or an email just does not seem to cut it for such an incredible year.
How does one put into words, as a wordsmith I am not, or show one’s appreciation for the generosity, kindness and trust of others… in a big way? Trite cliches and rambling platitudes are so, not me.
In our extremely visual and global social media world there is only one possibility for me to express my gratitude in an appropriate manner.
- Make it memorable.
- Make it personal.
- Make it unique.
- Make it shareable.
- Make a statement.
You know how I enjoy my cars…
