It's nice that my clients become friends.
People will sometimes say "I can't believe you're in sales." I don't feel like I'm in sales. I feel like I'm in the help business. I help my friends with ideas and we have a good time creating promotions together. I just try to make it easier for them and we have fun.
Rick of National Patient Services/Triplefin was looking for some interesting giveaways. He wanted to do USB flash drives but didn't want the same ole - same ole. His company works closely with drug manufacturers. He decided on a memory drive that looks like a doctor.
Rick wanted to incorporate both brands, National Patient Services and triplefin. So we Branded the doctor's jacket like an actual promotional wearable. We put the triplefin Icon on the doctors front pocket and the NPS logo on his back. We joked back and forth during the production process calling him "Dr. Flash".
Rick's a really nice guy to work with. We've never met in person, but I feel like I know him. It's always really nice to see his name on the caller ID. We've done about four projects together.
Dr. Flash was a big hit at their trade shows, so more were ordered. (Yay) I received a great email from Rick this summer with a photo attached. He was letting me in on a campaign they were building around Dr. Flash.
It was the best compliment, the fun we had creating became a successful marketing piece. I have the best job.
