Goody Lady Preparation and Distribution

Welcome to Goody Lady, I wanted to show you how I prepare Goody Lady Gift Bags. I want you to get the maximum exposure for your business, event or non-profit. This post is all about the process from start to finish.

Goodie Bags

The beginning process of getting inside Goody Lady Gift Bags

  1. You fill out the proper form, depending on if you’re a company/business/vendor, if you’re an event planner/coordinator or if you’re a non-profit.
  2. I receive an email with all your information from the form. I reply back to you confirming your options and send you an invoice. This invoice is your most crucial part, if you do not pay your invoice, your business will not get advertised, promoted or marketed here on Goody Lady.
  3. You mail Goody Lady your items that you want to include inside the gift bags.
  4. As soon as I receive them, I create a blog post that tells potential receivers that you are participating. This builds anticipation from a consumer to receive your items.
  5. That same day is when I am adding items into their respective bags using the choices that you have signed up for.
  6. Goody Lady bags are distributed right away as the bags are closed up after at least 5 businesses and not more than ten are added to each gift bag.
  7. Goody lady bags are distributed two ways : Mailed directly to recipient or directly handed out to recipients at various events.
  8. I update this website with how many Goody Lady gift bags have been sent out.

Please check out these pictures of me creating a Goody Lady Gift Bags.

I take all your items, make sure you are exclusive to a gift bag. I then add you, tie, add ribbon and put them inside the envelopes.

These Goody Lady bags are awaiting to get inside the envelopes.

Freaking Fantastic Blogging and List Building Challenge Day 2

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 I want to talk to you about something I struggle with ALL the time. I struggle with speech, so my pitch or thirty – sixty-second commercial is never what I practiced it to be. I can do so much more with writing, hence why I have this as a blog and not a static website. Plus how will I help a business out, if I am not continuously updating progress and other helpful tips and info.

Back to my troubles with my thirty-second commercial, to those who have watched me struggle through them and have looked past it I want to truly thank each of you. No matter how much practice I do it just does not seem to work. I will be starting to work with someone next month with this specific skill that I would love to improve on.

I have learned that no matter how good your product or service is, if you can’t deliver the message in the thirty seconds, people do not see you as a professional. Now to those who have looked past my speech troubles, and have taken the time to chat with me further, thank you for that. I can certainly get out what I want to through conversations, I guess it is the put on the spot commercials I have a harder time with.

I have read so many things to help me get my message out of my mouth, faster I have practiced tons, still do even on the way to an event. It just has not worked for me, I am not sure why. Which is why I am now seeking out a professional.

How about you? Do you have a hard time or do you not know where to start? Do you have a different one for the events that you regularly attend? How effective is yours, does it catch people’s attention or make their eyes roll the other way?

I was doing an exercise recently and I really liked it, since the way I talk in my opinion is I need fewer words that are more effective in meaning. So this exercise, sorry not sure where I saw it but this exercise I have been trying to come up with some great words that explains what I do, but in 10 words!  I may have seen this exercise from Darby and Partners, which is a great group that I am honored to be a part of and learn from them. Or I may have seen in with my business coach, Ellen with Business Resolutions, or even at one of the WPN masterminding luncheons. Those are the main places I have found to give the best anything business and they provide so much support and solutions as well. So I may have seen it somewhere within them.

So the exercise is create a list of 5 – 15 words that are effective at describing your business.

Immediately my mind starts wondering what words to write, should they all be on the business side of my business or for the consumers side of my business? I have no clue, but I will get this exercise done, I just might go ahead and do two lists, one for me seeking vendors and one for the receivers of the gifts. I see the benefit of both lists, so I think I will go and get that done. I will post about the lists later. I wanted to toss this exercise out to you to see what you come up for your business. What would you come up for mine, please comment below with some words that you think I should consider?

I really think by me doing this exercise, I will be able to come up with an interesting commercial, how about you?

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.

Freaking Fantastic Blogging and List Building Challenge

Hello and welcome to Goody Lady, thank you for taking time to come check out this challenge. I am joining in on this interesting thirty-day challenge to help generate more interest, buzz, and seek more vendors to participate in Goody Lady service.  I can’t connect businesses and customers if I don’t get the word out. I love to give out complimentary gifts to people and in doing so I am helping a business grow, I am helping a non-profit gain and continue their awareness, and I am helping event planners create a memorable event.

This challenge will be interesting, I will be using it to seek vendors. Why do you ask and what is in it for the business? My business is all about helping to build other businesses. This is an all in one inclusive exclusive swag gift bag service. I create a fun, soft connection between a business and a person that has either never heard of the business or they have but due to not knowing enough, they say no. Something great to remember is sometimes a person says no, because they do not know enough, sometimes they say no because they have yet to try it, and many want to know that you care and they want to save money as well.

So here is your chance to shine, I will be posting about this thirty-day challenge, each time it posts I will get to help more customers learn all about you. When you see these posts,  I will be offering a special deal to those who act that day in participating in Goody Lady. This will not be an everyday posting, like you probably will see with the UBC posts. However it will be a thirty-day challenge to help me build a vendor list, as I continue to build my portfolio. It will be once a week, so that is a total of thirty weeks. This will allow you to watch it one week and get in on it the next, each time the offering will be different. I am sure you do not want to miss out, so be sure to join in each week.

The portfolio I am creating is to show businesses what I do for them, and how it benefits them in particular. This is to create a portfolio for me to use offline to show businesses what it is I do for them.  I know I have a testimonials page, however it is up to the business, non-profit, event planner and a Goody Lady bag receiver to offer their Goody Lady testimonial, it is an option not an obligation.  I would LOVE it, encourage it, and ask that you do please leave a testimonial on that page please. This helps those who are seeking online proven ways to get their business out there. This also helps consumers know that they will get different things to learn about, they will be able to directly tell businesses exactly what a consumer wants and needs. My portfolio in particular will have specific businesses, testimonials and other info in it for helping a business make the confident decision to use Goody Lady services.

Today is not day 1, this is a little teaser for exactly what I have in store for all you business owners. Please be sure to enter your email to get blog updates. If you would like to get started please check out my Vendors Page.

How and where did I come up with this, I didn’t Tiffany did. Please head on over to her blog to find out what this is all about, how things are done and let’s build together.

For this go round I am doing this challenge to start building my vendor list. Will you be joining in the challenge? If you are joining how will you be using it? I plan to do the challenge again, more towards July or August. I am open for topics and suggestions for the next time. Please comment below on what it is you would like to see with this kind of challenge, here for Goody Lady. The challenge is about building content for my blog and it is about building my email list, and we are supposed to offer something. So tell me, in what direction would you like to see my next challenge go? What types of offerings would you like to receive?

You will get to experience products and services you have not heard of yet, products and services you may have heard about, but have not yet tried them because you don’t want to waste time or money just to see if it works.

I have taken the swag bag idea from events and have put a twist on them. Inside Goody Lady  bags you will not find just catalogs and other paper that screams buy me, buy me.

Though you can find them at some events, but attending an event is not mandatory. Neither is attending a seminar, presentation or party. You can get one just by requesting one by filling out the form below.

What can be found inside a Goody Lady bag? Here are some of the many things you can find, this is not a full list.

  • Samples, Trial and or Full sized items
