Social Marketing Through Sickness

Well…back in upstate NY and back to spring colds.  Every time the weather makes a drastic change, I get sick.  This didn’t happen when we lived in KY because they don’t have the drastic temperature changes down there that we have up here.  It can be 80 degrees one day and 30 degrees the next.   And I get sick in that kind of weather.  Generally it’s not really sick, sick.  Most times it’s just a cold and laryngitis.  Laryngitis is always present.

In the past, when I did most of my prospecting offline and by calling leads, etc…  my business suffered.  This past week, my business hasn’t suffered.  Why?  Because I don’t need to speak or feel well to do social marketing.  I have had to reschedule a couple appointments that were to take place on the phone, but I’m still selling products, I’m still building my business.  If I’m feeling tired, I go sleep for a while.  Then, I social network when I wake up.  There is always someone online.

What about you?  If you couldn’t speak for a week or so, would your business suffer?  Or would you still be bringing in customers, clients, or business partners?  If you found yourself ill and didn’t feel well, would you still be able to work and prospect?

Savannah Smiles Girl Scout Cookies

I bought a large amount of Girl Scout cookies from a friend’s daughter.  One I really looked forward to was the new Savannah Smiles Lemon Crunch Cookie.

After a long day of running around to doctor’s appointments and grocery stores, I sat down to relax in front of the TV with a box of these cookies.  I opened them and after the first bite thought “What?  There is no lemon taste.”  I figured maybe the next one would taste more lemony.  It did not.

I am severely disappointed in the Savannah Smiles Girl Scout Cookies.  If you like a VERY LIGHT lemon flavor, these are great cookies.  They can either be crunchy or “melt in your mouth”.  BUT…if you are looking for a LEMON flavored cookie, these really are not what they are advertised as.  Still good.  Don’t get me wrong, just not lemon.
