Today the ambassador bags were supposed to go out. Alas, there was a printing issue with their business cards (wrong paper) so we’re hoping for a ship date of tomorrow. While I’m frustrated with the printing process, I trust my printing partner and know we’ll get it right. I just hate making anyone wait. I’m sure you know the feeling.
The issue was I wanted a certain thickness to the paper. The same as my business cards. These ambassadors need know they are very important team members. They’ll be getting the same treatment as any full time employee would – a real bag, the real packaging and real business cards.
Besides, that’s just the way I do things.
Speaking of the ambassadors, I’ve had lots of requests for other ambassador programs. One of the biggest reasons I’m doing this program is to test the college market. Is there a desire for a nice bag among students? Or are they happy to shove their laptop in a backpack? Will they put the Alesya Bag on their Christmas list? Or do they need Target gift cards more?
I already know there is a need in the professional market. More specifically, thanks to Corporette I’ve also seen a need in the law firm market. If you can think of another market that’s under served, I’d love to hear about it. Perhaps another ambassador program will be in order!
