I bought these cool cufflinks from EthicalSuperstore.com. (How could I resist? Cufflinks + Ethics!)
They nailed the word of mouth follow-up perfectly.
1. A great follow-up email, asking for feedback and referrals.
Dear Andy Sernovitz,

2. Put something sharable in the box.
Check out this great postcard that asks for referrals, feedback, and proactively offers to fix any problems.
The lesson: Word of mouth is easy. Say “please” and “thank you.”
