No raise this year? Get one with OccasionOgraphy®!
Has your boss given you the talk yet? You know the one I’m talking about. Profit margins are slim... We need to protect company stability, etc. What’s the bottom line? You aren’t getting your bonus this year. Or worse yet, you’re getting a pay cut. We’ve all been there. But don’t despair! OccasionOgraphy® can help you replace that missing income, either with your sales OR by helping you leverage your day job. Let’s take a look at all the opportunities presented by your current work place.
First of all, you can become a supplier for your current employer’s promotional materials. SplashBands™ are perfect for customizing water bottles with your company’s name and logo, so print up a small sample batch for the next quarterly meeting. This can quickly turn into a regular order for a few cases per week (a steady income for you). Create some MyMintos™ matchbook mint covers for the candy dish in the lobby. Most companies have a candy dish, yet very few take advantage of getting their name and logo in front of potential clients in this simple way. The real kicker? Most mints sold in bulk are already prepackaged... perfect for these covers. Your bosses can even use the bars and Angels on Occasion® cards and invitations for thank you notes. I can guarantee you that the powers that be are looking for cost effective ways to make impact with potential investors and clients, and these small personalized touches make a HUGE impact.
You should also think about ways you can provide services for in-office events. Prizes, giveaways and placeholders for the company picnic? Sounds like a job for Cherubs-N-Chocolate® personalized candy wrappers. Employee appreciation events and company birthdays? Think bigger: a colorful bouquet of customized candy bars with greetings from everyone in the company. Do you see how it starts adding up? Regular orders of customized water bottles, mint covers and candy wrappers? And best of all, you are reaping the rewards. First through your profits from the OccasionOgraphy® products. Secondly, you are making yourself absolutely indispensible to your company. It’s kind of funny if you think about it; they are supporting your steps toward financial independence while you are adding value to the firm!
But don’t limit yourself to just your company. As soon as your goodies start circulating around the workplace, be prepared for requests from your co-workers! Keep extra copies of the catalog and order forms at your desk, or better yet, set up one a display showcasing your designs of the month. Your co-workers already know and trust you, so they are much more likely to place the order for their daughter’s wedding favors through you. There’s only one trick... they have to know you are in the business!
So before you consider getting a second job to cover the bills, consider taking a step toward your financial independence with OccasionOgraphy®. After all, once you’re the boss, you’re in control! So you never have to fear receiving the talk again!
