Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: It's So Special to Receive a Thank You!

It's So Special to Receive a Thank You!

flowers by nancy too lakeway txRing Ring... Hello?

Hi, Donna, you have some Flowers that were just delivered to you up here at the office.

Flowers?  For me?  From Whom?  Is there a card?

You want me to read the card?

Well, They're not from my Husband, so yes, please read it...

Back in August, I wrote a blog post about Flowers by Nancy, too, a local flower store in Lakeway TX.  When I moved here, to Falconhead West in Bee Cave TX, I was sent a welcome package with coupons for different things. One of the coupons was a house-warming plant from Flowers by Nancy, too.

When I went to pick it up, I spoke with the lady there, and decided to write a post about the store and its history. 

Low and behold, it's six months later and the store owner found my post.  She sent me flowers as a thank you!  I called her to thank her for her thank you. She was very excited to hear from me. She explained that her son is just getting her into the "Internet thing" and she has a lot to learn, but she thought it was really cool to see my write-up.

Just another example of how your writings can catch the eyes of the people who really need/want to see your writings.  Maybe the extra exposure to her company has drummed up business as this is a very busy weekend for the store, with it being Valentine's Day and all.

Stop by Flowers by Nancy, too and tell them you saw the blog post about them!! They'll love it!!

Hi Donna - Sometimes we feel that we are blogging in a vacuum and that our clients and/or the subject of our blogs will probably never see them.  Then something like this or a client call will happen and we realize that our blogs are truly performing on a large stage with a big unseen audience.  That is another reason for being thoughtful about what we write and when we should hold our tongues a bit.

Hi Donna... what a nice acknowledgement from someone you wrote about!  This sounds like the kind of business I would like to patronize!

Posted by Steve Shatsky about 9 years ago

Donna - This is very cool, it's always great to be acknowledged, especially with flowers.

Donna: I think both of you will profit from this kind gesture for a very long time. It was kind of you to write the post and it was kind of her to send you the bouquet. (Ceil)

Congratulations. Isn't it great to get a "Thank You"?  And isn't it even better to know that your blogs are actually getting read? I think that's fantastic.

That's a great story, do what's right what you believe, and good things happen when we least expect it.

Good luck and success.

I posted something similar on my blog.  I wrote about Nothing Bundt Cakes and got a delicious bundt cake from the Cedar Park location at 1890 Ranch.  It was yummy.

I think that is pretty cool for two reasons. The first that she found your post on the internet and second for taking the time to reach out and thank you. Very cool indeed.

That's really cool to really be surprised with flowers like that. I got flowers but they are from my husband.

Kindness is always in style and always counts to the one that you were kind to.  The post that you wrote meant something ot her.  How nice that she wanted to say thank you.

Thank you for all the comments. I apologize for a delayed response. I've been in Dallas at Raincamp, and it was a 4 day trip when you add in drive time there and back...

I have added them to my newsletter, so I definitely hope they are a source of future referrals!!
