Freaking Fantastic Blogging and List Building Challenge Day 3

Hello and welcome to Goody Lady, thank you for visiting. If you are not a business, event planner or non-profit please visit this page to read other blog posts. Please head over to the post that offers you a free gift before you leave the blog and go about your day, I want to be sure you get it, thank you :).

This series is for helping me seek more vendors for Goody Lady Gift Receivers to experience and to help me with creating an offline portfolio.

Thank you for staying with this post, it means you are ready to get a special deal for helping me create my offline portfolio. In case you have not seen my first post about what this is about, please head over to The Start of the Series. I want to share with you some things I have been learning about.

This week let’s talk about what brought you to make the decision to start your own business. Did you join a team or ground floor opportunity just because of what was presented to you as far as compensation, the products, the bonuses, exactly what was it that drew you in? During your first month in business, was it going how you were told it would go? How about six to twelve months down the road? How were things, going and what has your journey been?  Please share with us all the good and bad times, the learning curves, the road blocks, and your triumphs during your first year.

So back to this portfolio and why I am creating one. I want something for offline use. When I am, at one of my networking events, or doing a one on one with a potential business or some other situation that would like to see how it works, what other businesses have done and how it helped them as well. I sort of will be using it as a testimonials for offline. Not at every networking event will I be able to bring Goody Lady bags with me, some events I attend regularly, like a leads meeting. My goal for Goody Lady gift receivers is to be as unique as possible.

If I attend a particular event each week and it has the same people in it, which when this occurs it is like for leads clubs. I wouldn’t give a Goody Lady bag to the same group, every week. I rather ask them if they needed more free gift or complimentary gift cards for their display at their office or place of work for their clients or customers. Remember Goody Lady wants to reach as many unique people or have unique impressions as possible.

So now for the deal you are here for. Please fill out the form today in order to get in on this deal. You will have even more exposure with this deal for both online and offline, especially offline. Since you will be shown over and over to others, you will get your brand seen by different people. They are business owners, event planners and even non profits too. Each of you can possibly benefit from one another. Connection making is key to every business.

About Goody Lady Swag Gifts

Who is Goody Lady? Hello my name is Marilyn Arriaga. I am a mom to five children. We have two dogs and two bearded dragons. I am originally from Boston, Ma. I moved to Florida in September of 2009. Why did I create Goody Lady? Read below…

Goody Lady was created January of 2013. I created it because I have noticed that when I offered free gifts of samples to people I had a better connection with my customers. I get to see happier people when they receive a free Goody Lady bag. Since I was already creating Goody bags for my self to get my products into someone hands to experience them, I decided hey, let me get some other businesses to participate and give a goody bag receiver a great experience. Goody bag receivers get to experience and try different things. Many companies offer coupons for you to save on products and services that benefit you. Many people, myself included do not know what products and services are available. This is a great way to not just learn about new products and services, but to also try them before buying them. Once you try different products you learn how it will simplify your life. We are all so busy with life, it is hard to get to learn about new things.Goodie Bags

Goody Lady Beginnings

I tested out Goody Lady Swag Gift Bags starting in October. I was only doing it for my other business called Spoil Yourself Boutique. I also got two of my friends to join in so they too can also get others to learn about what they offer.

So I created some fun small treat bags. These treat bags had some chocolate, hard candies and a Scentsy wax sample along with a chalk poem with a piece of chalk and a sample of Lemon Grass soap. So with three different companies, I was able to fill these cute little Halloween treat bags with some goodies and some samples for people to try out. It was fun creating them and even more of a blast to hand each Goody Lady Treat bag out at an event held at UNO’s October of 2012.

Each time I handed a bag of treats to someone and I watched their face light up with happiness I just knew that it was the perfect thing to do, it is fun to do and I can help other businesses grow. I am already doing it for myself, why not offer it to other businesses, and make money while connecting a business to a prospect and more importantly just plain old have fun filling someone’s day with a little happiness.

I was not just handing these out at an event, I was also doing it while doing daily activities like going through a drive through, at a store and handing the cashier a fun treat bag. One day I handed a wonderful women a treat bag and she just lit right up. It was nine in the morning and I ordered a coffee, I saw she was stressed, so I said while handing her a treat bag, “here don’t be so hard on yourself and beat yourself up. Things will get better”, and I was giving her a friendly smile, she reached over to me and gave me this big hug! I hugged back, she said “wow thank you so much, no one just hands free goodies to anyone or says thank you. I must look terrible and you can see that I am having the most horrible day.” She said “Thank you, you have made my day” Did I mention it was only NINE AM! I hope she had a better day after that.

Goody Lady

Right then and there, I just knew exactly what I wanted and need to do. I want to make someone’s day!
