Can We Transcend our Usual Mode of Perceiving and Get Outside the Box? How Do We Reach and Sustain Our Highest Awareness?

Are you a looking for a non-aggressive way to gain new clients , contact old customers and increase your business? Do you want something different than giving away pens, baseball caps and the usual? Do you hate to sell or be in the pushy salesman mode? Have you thanked your employees or staff recently with a meaningful gift that will give them daily tools that will be beneficial and that they can keep and share with others?

What is something of value you can give to someone that will also remind them of you and your company?

Stress

I've written a 24 page booklet on Stress Reduction tips incorporating my training in yoga, meditation and psychological tips from my background as a Social Worker. I have an online, home study course on ways to use Meditation, Breathing and Simple Yoga Poses for Depression, Anxiety and Stress available for 3 continuing ed credits for psychologists, social workers and nurses at ToolsforStressRelief.com . The 24 page booklet has been used by schools for educating students and parents for healthier ways to manage stress. It is also used by businesses to reach past customers instead of sending out a sales flyer that will be thrown away. Put your label or sticker on the front cover. It is viral marketing because people show it to friends, read it in waiting rooms, and keep for a long time.

NOTE: I am full of gratitude for the generous funding from the Nok Foundation that I received recently that enabled me to distribute several hundred booklets around South Florida. These have been given to the Mental Health Association of Broward County, Broward Schools Department of Attendance and Guidance, Boys and Girls Club of Deerfield Beach, Coconut Creek Community Center, Rebel's Drop-In Center for Disabilities and other local agencies. Please contact me at quietmind2000@yahoo.com if you like to be a donor or sponsor so that I can replenish these centers and more requests can be fulfilled . I can put a compliments of sticker with your contact information on the cover.

Here's a few ideas how you can use it for your own situation. How many times do you want to approach a potential customer or client but they seem busy or the setting isn't right? You know if you give them your business card it will end up in a pile with other ones and not reviewed. A booklet with a cute graphic on it and helpful information that they can use to deal with daily stress is something they will keep. Also what about your former customers? :

1) Send it out to customers or clients you haven't seen for a while with your business card or a flyer inside. Offer a free 30 minute session, class or phone consult. If you're selling merchandise have a coupon enclosed. Include a brochure , menu or other info inside the booklet for them.

2) At Holiday Season mail to new and former clients wishing them a happy New Year. You can also do this on someone's birthday or for July 4th.

3) If you are at a fair or tradeshow these are nice to have at the table to give out with your contact info on cover.

4) Include with an invoice, a new catalog or brochure.

5) If you are announcing a new location, you can enhance your announcement with this booklet.

6) Are you a speaker? You can give these away at your workshops or even sell them at back table for a small item. Sometimes you can't collect e-mail addresses or contact info at talks or seminars . But you can give away something. Your contact information will be right on cover so they can contact you.

7) Do you market to local businesses? You can walk aroud town or the mall and stop by, introduce yourself and then give them the booklet with "Compliments of XYZ.com" on the cover. People are much more receptive when they receive a gift than if they are given a hard sell. You can get the word out about your business by bringing these to networking events, meetup meetings, leave in health food stores and other locations as a free gift as well.

8) If you have distributors for your business they can buy or receive these from you to get new customers without having to cold call or give a hard sell.

9) This is a wonderful gift for Customer Service Week, Employee Appreciation Day or to give as a surprise at anytime to let your staff know you recognize and appreciate their work. The tips also are helpful to reduce sick days, employee tensions and will increase one's energy and motivation for work. The first week in October is customer service week. Does your company have a gift in mind?

Travelers Insurance purchased this booklet in 2009 for Customer Service Week for employees.

Did you forget employee appreciation day this year?? Don't feel guilty but let your staff know you value their work.

Testimonials:

"I just love Debbie's stress reduction booklet! There are a few things I particularly like:
- Debbie includes an explanation of how each particular "Tip" might be of help to you.
- You can browse through the book and choose those that appeal to you the most.
- The exercises are simple and easy and only take a few minutes!
I have a private practice and specialize in working with anxiety, so am especially grateful to be able to have this booklet to give to all of my clients; a great tool that they can take home with them, so they can "stay balanced" throughout the week!

Thanks Debbie!

I'm sending these out in February to my clients with a greeting card and letter that details the benefits of massage." E-mail: antosha@tstt.net.tt


I bought your booklet after my divorce because I kept putting myself down and was very irritable towards my kids over small things. I felt sorry for myself and was not able to cope with daily stressors like the kids not cleaning their rooms, money issues and worries about being alone the rest of my life. At work I was very on edge and felt got nervous before group meetings. I didn't think this would work for me but the 3 part breathing technique helps me a lot. I also am much better at changing my thought patterns when they are negative. I would like to order one for my sister who gets feelings of panic before speaking at work presentations. Thanks.
