I wanted to share a wonderful tip I learned from my Ralph Roberts conference call 3 weeks ago that has already earned me a lead.
Ralph shared with all of us that when he goes into a restaurant he always leaves his business card with a hand written note on the back thanking the waiter or waitress for the great service, smile, etc. and always writes their name if they are wearing a name tag eg: "Thanks for the awesome food and great service Tiffany".
He always leaves a healthy tip with these business cards. The return he says has been amazing.
I tried this just 4 days after Ralph had mentioned it and to my amazement the manager of the local "Outback Restaurant" called me an hour after I left the Outback to personally thank me for such a kind and wonderful gesture. He said his boss is looking for real estate and he gave his boss my card!
Aside from the potential business just think about putting a smile on someones face that might be having a bad day or personal problems. Paying them a compliment may just be what they need more than you or I will ever know.
Give this tip a try. It can't hurt and you never know when you will see some results.
