Turning a "Thank You" Into GREAT Word of Mouth Marketing!

From the guy who wrote the book on Word of Mouth Marketing—literally—Andy Sernovitz—comes some great tips you can use to turn a thank you into great word of mouth marketing.

Never offer a normal thank you.
Only send gifts that make people say “wow.” No one wants to receive a gift basket full of weird food that you don’t want to eat. Try this: Flamingo Surprise will cover a lawn with 100 pink flamingos or happy faces. Ship the best BBQ from Tennessee. Send a cheesecake from the Carnegie Deli for less than you’d spend on a boring gift basket.

The Lesson: If you’re going to send a gift, make sure it’s worth talking about.
