Inspiring Success in Many

What would you do for a client?

[tweetmeme source=”cbyndas” only_single=false]Do you all remember the catchy commercials from years back that asked the viewers…”what would you do for a Klondike bar?” This ad campaign was very successful for highlighting all the crazy/zany things that a person would do to get the world’s best ice cream treat – a Klondike Bar.

We can all relate. When something is really good or is something we really want, we are willing to do most any crazy silly thing to get it. This week it was brought to my attention that the “Klondike” philosophy also works well when dealing with clients.

A friend of mine, Mike Ott, President of Lakeview Staffing sent me the following e-mail.

OK in a conversation with one of my clients earlier this year I told them that they would never see me in a snuggie or wearing a cheese head.

Mike Ott - What I would do for a client

Well through my shrewd negotiating skills…yikes! I told them that if they hired my candidate I would email them a picture of me wearing a snuggie and a cheese head. I sent the invoice to them today so now it was time for me to pay up. Gosh the things I do for my customers!

Now this is a man that will do anything for a client! Kudos to Mike and his entire team at Lakeview Staffing for taking customer service to a whole new level! I will be sure to bring a few Klondike bars to our Spring Recruiting Workshop just for Mike. Do ice cream and beer go together?
