  • 2. The Story behind SendOutCards
    • Some people start businesses purely to make money. Others have a goal to solve a problem. Then there are those who do it to make a difference…
        • Years ago, Kody Bateman, founder of SendOutCards, had a prompting to tell his brother he loved him. He ignored the prompting and a few months later, his brother was killed, leaving behind a wife and three kids.
        • Kody decided he would never ignore a prompting again. In 2002, Kody created SendOutCards to allow people to act on promptings by IMMEDIATELY sending a card in the mail seconds after being inspired to do so.

One referral came from a greeting card and it generated us $29,380 U.S. in commissions. This system is extremely simple to use, it will save you time and money and it is very powerful. Over the years we have tried just about everything and spent thousands on marketing that never produced a dime. The Send Out Cards referral system is simply the best we have used .”

I began getting calls from my clients thanking me for thanking them, and the referral rate began to climb ! The more cards I send, the more calls I receive , and the buzz it’s creating among my friends, clients, and business associates is just amazing!”

  • 24. Results in More Business!       Brad, I know the Paper Tiger is a little different from what you are probably used to. If you have not yet loaded it onto your computer, I encourage you to do so. It usually works better when you take it out of the box! If you need a little help getting started, be sure to listen to the recorded instructional teleclass I provided you a link to. Call 425-881-6627 if you want me to send the link again. If you want help strategizing on how to set up the locations to best meet your needs, I have implemented it for a number of attorneys and would be happy to assist you. A phone appointment gets most people unstuck and well on their way. Let me know if you want to set something up. Best regards,     Kathy Paauw This was the second card send. It prompted a phone call from this attorney who had purchased some software from me. He scheduled a consultation as a result. It’s doubtful that he would have called for assistance if I hadn’t sent the card. Investment: $2 (a dollar per card) ROI: $175 for a phone consultation with me
  • 25. The Power of a Personal Note       “ Short handwritten notes yield long results. In sales, never underestimate the importance of the personal gesture, and right at the top of the list of effective personal gestures sits the handwritten note. Always send memorable cards and personal notes when you are reminded of a person.” -Harvey MacKay The amount of referrals that you generate are directly influenced by the relationships that you are able to grow and nurture.
  • 26. The Power of a Personal Note       “ Thank you notes are one of the most powerful tools in building a huge network, both professionally and socially.

I suggest getting into the habit of immediately sending out notes.” -Bob Burg SendOutCards will help you establish, build & nurture relationships with the simple click of a mouse.

Referrals are the lifeblood of your business.
  • 28. The Power of a Personal Note       THE POWER OF A PERSONAL NOTE “ Because I understood that building relationships is what selling is all about, I began early in my career to send thank you notes to people . I set a goal to send ten thank you notes every day. Guess what happened? By the end of my third year in sales, my business was 100% referrals!” -Tom Hopkins The best referrals come as a result of people who KNOW, LIKE, TRUST and REMEMBER you!
