Small Business B2B Marketing Tip: Get Social Over Coffee

Lots of networking groups, such as Business Networking International (BNI), encourage one-to-one meetings between members so that each member can learn about the other person’s business. These meetings often take place over coffee. Here’s a way to take that concept to a whole new level.

Getting Social Over Coffee…And How to Follow Up

After you have your coffee meeting, follow up with your contact by sending him or her a personalized coffee mug filled with a package of coffee and a hand written thank you note. What this accomplishes:

  • A handwritten thank you note shows that you have manners and that you’ve taken a genuine interest in the other person. It also shows you care about the details.
  • The coffee mug serves as a nice reminder about your networking meeting AND it’s a billboard for your business.

As for what types of mugs to use? Here are three of our favorite personalized ceramic mugs that we recommend considering:

1. Aztec Flare Custom Mugs. We love the cool shape and the contrast between the dark-colored exterior and bright interior colors.

3. Custom Bistro Mugs. We love the look and feel of these sturdy mugs that are reminiscent of diner coffee mugs.
