I have a point. So bare with me a little.
In my line of work I created a program called H.I.S.S. Within this program, one of the main themes, is having my business be an extension of the other business, and thier business be an extension of mine. In this, the teamed businesses are able to provide a greater amount of services/products through combined forces.
A major retailer for example. Within this major retailer, it has 27 point of sale registers. Each customer of theirs is a potential customer of mine, and one in which I want to reach. My business, has one point of sale register counter, but thousands of customers each year, and this major retailor is interested in reaching these as potential customer of theirs. After several appointed meetings, we agreed to swap advertisement in our rooms, and word of mouth selling and promotion at counter (with my employees, which then become an extension of the retailer). In exchange, I was allowed brochures and pamphlets at each Point of sale Register, in store flat screen advertisements, and----25 50 dollar gift cards, I could use as I saw fit. I too, allowed then to use so many rooms (such as suites) for employee of the month, special occasions, and other things as they come up, and even used one of my other business partners to give them free food when they stayed. I use this approach in merchandise retailors, food establishments, flower shops, and various mechanical incarnations, and the possibilities become near endless. These business partners offer food, merchandise, etc, that I could also use for customer service situations.
Here is my point. I am writing this fast, since I am still at work, so I apologize for this.
If a major business was contacted, and with the right offer and communication, what do you think MAB could do? The purpose here is mutual and obtaining a benefit.
The benefit could then be used to award a forum member for a special occasion, PR, personal goal obtained, etc, etc.
I probably need to be more specific, and I can later if anyone is interested.
Be at your best!
