I <3 Business Cards...

My day was looking rather bleak when I came into work earlier, I had not a single appointment booked. I was futzing around on the computer in my room, psyching myself up to go exercise despite a lack of motivation, when Alicia knocked on my door and told me I had a 9 AM appointment.

Furthermore, she told me the client had booked two 50-minute Swedish massages back-to-back, as it was cheaper for him to do that (due to a special we're running), than to have an 80-minute Swedish, as he had originally planned. So, one hour and forty minutes of light-to-medium pressure, full body massage. Piece of cake!

Icing on this cake? Alicia told me he had requested me by name!

Turns out I massaged him back in February, and he managed to hang onto my business card the entire time since then.

He's also a very good tipper!

What lesson did you take away from today's story, children?

ALWAYS HAND OUT BUSINESS CARDS, IT CAN'T HURT AND IT MIGHT EVEN HELP YOU MAKE MONEY!

Good reminder! Good story too - bet it made your day.

Oh, absolutely, Roismhaire...he was my ONLY client yesterday. It's rare to see repeat clients at the spa, because our clientele are almost exclusively tourists. I always get a boost when I do have one, though! :)

The main reason I posted this story is because several of my colleagues mock me for handing out business cards. HA!

That is VERY cool! Good on ya, and good on your client.

That said... if I were to do biz cards it would have to be something like this. :p

I like that business card of yours, Buck...something to aspire to for me, down the road a bit!

I thought the lesson was "Always remember who's good with their hands, in case you pass within reach again someday"...

Christina LMT said...

Sean, that's the lesson for customers! But equally valid, of course. :)
