So one of the companies I’ve been doing some work with had been doing a really good job. Anyone that has dealt with me knows I expect the best and nothing less. I can be a little demanding and I can be cocky as well on a daily basis. If you are offering a service I expect the very best, and I better see it. One thing is this never goes unnoticed by me.
This company has been doing a great job, always gets back to me promptly, and in addition I can reach my reps after hours on their cell phones. This as I’ve discussed in previous posts builds a relationship between you and the individuals representing the company. These are the relationships I want to build upon and grow, these are the relationships I want to keep.
So in appreciation I decided to buy the whole team that goes anywhere near my account lunch. Granted they live in another state and I might never get to see them, but they know me now, they understand I appreciate what they are doing, and I want them to continue to do a good job. This is a gesture of gratitude for their work and I highly appreciate everything they did for me and will continue to do for me. I didn’t have to do it but I wanted to. The response I got from my rep couldn’t have shown me any more thanks for what I did this april fools afternoon.
The pizza party went off without a hitch. At various times throughout the luncheon, statements could be heard across the office, “EDK is awesome!” and “Blow up that EDK volume!” 30 minutes and 2 belt notches later I looked around and saw satisfied buyers proving the age old theory that a well-fed publisher rep is a happy publisher rep. Kudos to you sir and thank you for thinking of the people who work hard every day with little praise.
No, thank you……..
