Serving Up a Delicious Incentive

Your partner served up their flagship client and introduced your team and solutions. Now, maybe it’s time you served them up something in return. In fact, I have just the thing.

incentive solutionsIf you’ve ever been in a position to help your partner achieve a sale, then maybe you know first-hand how good it feels to be rewarded for your efforts. While it’s never something you outwardly expect, a gesture of thanks always goes a long way toward generating some serious goodwill. As most of us, at one time or another, have been on the receiving end of such a gesture, it behooves us to always keep in mind the ageless maxim, “What goes around, comes around.”

Now we’re the one who’ve been handed ­- let’s be honest - a gift-wrapped new business opportunity. It’s our turn for thanks, how are we going to reciprocate? Are we going to offer an email, a handshake, a complimentary phone call… or are we going to do a bit more? As a small gesture of gratitude, maybe our partner deserves a piping hot plate of good karma, in the form of a Gourmet Selects incentive reward.

If it was the partner's sales person that went the extra mile to get us in the door, maybe we should serve them up a year’s worth of the “dessert of the month” or, my favorite, the salsa of the month. If it was the partner principal’s decision to finally bring us in, let’s serve up her whole team with a Monster Grill. Maybe we show up with an apron, spatula, and enough fillets to feed the team over lunch. Maybe the grill doesn't have a home at the office, but the company could give it away to a deserving team member, or even make a contest out of it.
