Get To Work…On Vacation!

Posted in Synergy Suggestions on 27.06.11 by John Meloche

There’s nothing better than a vacation to get some real work done. Now, at first glance, we’re sure that first sentence may read a bit weird. But it is not altogether untrue. Now, in actuality, most people go on vacation to get away from the stresses of everyday life. But, for a business owner, every time a new person is met, a  new opportunity has presented itself. And you always meet new people on vacation!

For the past couple of weeks, the Synergy Marketing Consultants Blog has been on a vacation of its own. But fear not, it is back and better than ever! And with that being said, we’d like to offer some simple advice to business owners who may also be taking a little bit of time off this summer.

You can make the most of your summer vacation by going out of your way to introduce yourself to new people. Think about it, when you’re off on a resort, you’re bound to bump into individuals from all parts of the world.  Chances are, you may never see these people again, so wouldn’t it make sense to make a great first impression to keep them in your lives?

Again, as a business owner, you’ll want to spread the word about your company whether you are technically “working” or not. Usually, one of the first questions that a complete stranger will ask you during a friendly chat is what you do for a living. Now, when you go ahead and tell him or her that you own a business, don’t you want that business of yours to be remembered?

Just about everyone hands over a business card when making this revelation. But not you. Your business is a cut above its competition. You want to stand out. You want to be different. So what do you do? You hand over to this new friend of yours one of the best promo products available! This is how you will leave a lasting impression.

Consider taking some promo items along with you on your trip this summer. Practical and inexpensive gifts like pens and keychains are always big hits. They won’t weigh down your luggage, and you’ll be sure to impress and please everyone you meet. You won’t just be making new friends, but you could be introducing your business to new clients.

All with the simple gesture of a promotional gift, your vacation may just be the best thing to happen to your business all year. You’ll be meeting people you wouldn’t otherwise meet. And the fact that you’ll be spreading the word about your  business in a unique way will pay dividends that most advertising can’t achieve. Bon voyage!
