Marketing Tip of The Month:  

Make notes on business cards.  Soon after receiving a business card from a customer, make notes on it about the meeting with this person. How often do we return to our offices from a meeting only to immediately get busy with some distraction? Before we know it, we have lost the sense of the highlight of that meeting. Taking a moment to write down the highlights on the business card allows us to maintain our connection to this person.
