Virtual Coffee Date
If we were sitting at a little cafe someplace sipping our coffees and catching up on life, I would tell you how much I love coffee dates–including virtual coffee dates. I love just connecting with my clients and watching them light up as they open themselves up to new possibilities. I think I actually get more out of my sessions than my clients do. Imagine that.
I would tell you that I am excited by a recent discovery: Tweet-a-Coffee by Starbucks.
Tweet-a-Coffee is very simple to use. It is as simple as syncing your Starbucks account to Twitter here and linking a credit card to your account. You can create a Starbucks account if you do not already have one. Next, tweet “@tweetacoffee” with the Twitter handle of the blessed recipient. Your recipient will receive a $5 Starbucks eGift card. At this time, Tweet-a-Coffee is available in the US and in Canada.
Recipients receive a tweet that they have an eGift along with a link to redeem. They can then either print out the eGift or download it to their mobile device.
Creative ways to Tweet-a-Coffee
I find this is a fun, engaging and simple way to express gratitude to someone and these virtual eGifts are a nice surprise. Following are a five ways you can make an impact with Tweet-a-Coffee:
- Get acquainted calls
- Client gifts
- Raffle prizes
- Birthday gifts
- Virtual assistant gifts
The possibilities are limitless. I love that you also receive an @mention.
