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.

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

Can you do me a favor? I would like to hear from you what exactly do you like to find inside goody swag gift bags. Please help us with your feedback with this Fast Poll Thank you.

If you have questions, please post them below in the comments, I answer each one myself. If you have a question, others do too. By you taking that step to ask questions, and me answering them it helps others. Don’t forget to request your free Goody Lady gift.

So I want to hear from you. What do you think about this concept in general? From a business prespective, what are your thoughts? How would you use this service to benefit you? What about from a customer’s perspective, what would you getting a bag full of things you can use mean to you? What or how would you think of a business that participated to give you an experience with their products?

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.

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

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. No, you will not get such a thing as a Goody Lady bag receiver. You will not receive catalogs, unless it is a mini catalog but never full catalogs.  The other twist on it is, you do not need to attend events just to get a Goody Lady bag. 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.
