Lessons from a Pink Bowl

Lessons from a Pink Bowl

I was reading through my facebook news feed and saw this story so I had to post it in here as it’s brilliant. Lessons from a Pink Bowl.
The story is below and you can read it, but I was amazed at how easy this was for the business mentioned below and how now it has had a viral effect, all because they sent a pink bowl out to a customer. They rewarded him for his loyalty with a pink bowl and a special card.

BUT not just any pink bowl... this was a VIP Pink Bowl.. this bowl allowed the customer to….
jump the line, he could with the show of the bowl go to the front of the line. I am sure we can all feel the good and bad of that..

I hate line jumpers and if I can find a way to jump the line that is fair then I am going to do it. The power that would give me, to walk past lines of people all because of my pink bowl wow. I want one, and I will do what I have to do to get hold of one of those bowls.
it was a limited edition Pink bowl as well.
When the customer showed his Pink Bowl the staffer was excited to see him as well…. read on …

Incredible marketing. This is an offline business that used old fashioned marketing, by old fashioned I mean real mail in the letter box, and because this person was so happy with the out come it has now gone viral all over the net.

Brilliant. I wonder how much the marketing cost the company all up. I am positive not as much as they are going to make out of it.

How to Create Word of Mouth Magic

I had an amazing experience the other day, so amazing that I just had to share it with you. I received, in the mail, a big gift-wrapped pink-box. Inside the box was a pink salad bowl, a VIP membership card, and a letter. The sender, a New York City healthy salad-to-go restaurant chain called Just Salad, apparently had just awarded me with number 17 of a total 100 limited edition VIP Pink Bowls.

I was excited, of course, and read the letter, which informed me that my loyalty had earned me the Pink Bowl. More important, the letter informed me that I could now enjoy line-skipping privileges, free toppings and other perks, as long as I brought in my Pink Bowl.

Well, obviously I knew where I had to have lunch that day. As I walked into the always-crowded Just Salad with my Pink Bowl, I immediately felt like a VIP. I walked past a line of about 40 people, several of which were literally ooh-ing and ah-ing at my Pink Bowl as I walked. I felt like Moses parting the Red Sea with my Pink Bowl.

“Where’d he get that?” I heard. “I’ve never seen one!” I heard. It was incredible. When I got to front of the long line, the woman waiting at the front said, in a typical New York City rushed-town, “Excuse me! Haven’t you seen this line?”

I gently held up my Pink Bowl, and she said, “Oh, I’m so sorry. I didn’t see your Bowl.”

Apparently, Just Salad has done some promotion around this Pink Bowl campaign. Anyway, I approached the counter, and heard the staffer say “Wow, this is the first Pink Bowl customer I’ve had!” I got my free chicken topping, and I was soon on my way. When I got back to the office, within a few minutes, 30 people at Likeable had heard the story. It soon appeared on Twitter and Facebook. Now it’s here.I had an amazing experience with my Pink Bowl. Guess where I had lunch the next day? And the day after that? For the cost of a bowl, shipping, and a free topping, ($20?) the small business reached thousands of customers and prospects.

I’ve been a regular Just Salad customer for a while now, and frankly, I’m not sure whether I got the Pink Bowl because of my loyalty or my influence. But I can tell you this: Just Salad’s Pink Bowl campaign to me and others is a reminder of the timeless formula of word of mouth (WOM) marketing success:

Great Product + Loyalty Marketing + Influencer Marketing = WOM Magic

Let’s dissect this formula for success and talk about how you can benefit:

1) The fundamental priority is to create a great product. A great product or service is worth talking about to your friends. Just Salad has these cool orange and green reusable salad bowls, dozens of different salad options, and provides fresh, fast, healthy lunches. It’s worth talking about to begin with. On the other hand, if you don’t have a great product, no amount of marketing is going to make a difference.

2) Reward loyal customers in a fun way. Your loyal customers are the ones most passionate about your great product or service, and they’re the ones most likely to talk about you. So give them something to talk about. And give them a reason to keep coming back.

3) Give influential customers something to talk about. Long before social media, you had some customers and prospects that were more influential than others: the captain of the football team, or the President of the P.T.A., or guy who organizes all of the golf outings. Thanks to social media, you can now identify your most influential customers more easily than ever. For instance, you can use Klout or Kred, services that measure how many Twitter followers and Facebook friends take action when people post.

Here are 5 examples for how different companies and individuals can leverage word of mouth magic with their customers and prospects:

1) A real estate agent sends a beautiful bottle of wine to an influential prospect – before the sale.

2) A software company launches in Beta with exclusive free access to a limited group of Twitter influencers.

3) A law firm lands a new client – the biggest manufacturing company in the city – and sends out big cookie baskets to all of the execs the next day.

4) An insurance saleswoman finds the top-connected people on LinkedIn in town, and mails them all Starbucks gift cards.

5) A restaurant offers free dessert to all of its frequent diners.

If you have a great product, and can get your loyal, influential customers talking about it, you will create word of mouth magic. Getting lots of the right people talking about you in a positive way is more valuable than any advertising – and thanks to social media, word of mouth magic can spread faster and further than ever before.

Just Salad did just that with me, and now many thousands of people know about it.

How can you create some Word of Mouth Magic for your business?

All I can say is thank you Dave for sharing this and reminding us again how import customers are and how important I am as a customer to a business. I am over loyalty cards that seem to always dissappear just as your about to use it, or you have to spend too much before you get rewarded.

What are your thoughts? When did you last have an amazing customer experience and where was that?

Love you to write and comment and to share everywhere the Lesson of the pink bowl.

The Best Graphics Ever


The Best Graphics Ever

Well I believe them to be the Best Graphics Ever… that assumption is based on so many people sending emails and making comments and asking where do I get my amazing graphics from. I have to agree they are pretty darn good.

I have also noted that every other day I get people on my website who have searched google for stick figure and ended up on my site. I just got one picture here, but when it first started happening I thought is amazing. Anything you can do to get traffic is worth it .


I am sure many of you have seen the stick figures all over the net, some on TV and I note one building in Whangarei has them on their signage.

You could have bought some off the Warrior Forum when they sent the emails out but they were no where as good as these ones.

Okay, okay… I know you want to know where to get them from… Then you need to go to Presenter Media  and you will get The Best Graphics Ever, well that’s my opinion.

I have a short video here for you to take a look at,  just wanted to show you some of the graphics I have used from there and telling you a little about them.

You can get Power Point Templates, Animated Graphics and just the standard pictures as well.

On the video I said you needed the latest version of Power Point to use the Templates well I was right and wrong on that. To use the Animated Power Point Templates you need the latest version of Power Point, however if you want to use the non Animated Templates then you can have any version that is stated. Hope that makes sense.

I have also noted that when I check out my posts that have the animated pictures they done always show as moving on Internet Explorer. Anyway all I can say is these amazing graphics will add life to your posts, presentations or whatever else you plan to use them in.

The Presenter Media link here is not an affiliate link as they don’t have an affiliate program.

The other place I mentioned in the video is Morgue File. This place has amazing pictures. Wow they will blow you away and unlike Presenter Media most of the Morgue File pictures will cost you nothing. I also mentioned on the video to be careful with the sizes. If you use a picture on your website and it seems to take a while to load then you would be best to change the file size.

If the graphics are not animated for you, then maybe change browser and take a look they are really excellent, high quality and with Christmas coming up I see they have many different options there as well.

Have fun with these. Get off the couch and go make some money. :-)
