I AM GLAD YOU THOUGHT OF ME
Here's a light-hearted Guyanese-inspired poem about how to nurture relationships and turn them into loyal fans who refer others to your business:
In de land of Demerara's shine
Where friendships sweet like sugarcane entwine
There's a tale of referrals, so divine
A path to business growth, so fine.
First, plant your seeds like pumpkin in the ground
A database of patrons, you have found
These are the folks, so trusted and true
These are the folks who are glad you pursued ...
Now, 40% may be your goal of loyalty and trust
To nurture and turn into customers, can seem like a mighty thrust
How do you keep them engaged, sending their baskets for more
because make no mistake; strategies they don't trust, will soon leave you buss.
Offer them value, like sweet pepperpot stew
Show them you care, and your loyalty will accrue.
Send word, calls, and cards of cheer
take care of your village and watch your business prosper year after year.
When your villagers are happy, like a Mashramani sound,
They'll spread the word, all around the village and town
Referrals will flow like the Kaieteur Falls
And your business will thrive, we want you to know.
So, in this Guyanese tale, there's wisdom to glean,
Nurture your neighbours, like Guava and Five Finger trees.
With care and attention, your business will thrive,
And the 40% will help you come alive!
