IF you are one of the people who have been saying “my phones not ringing” I’m not making the $$$ THIS is your opportunity to hit up a Corporate Client…It’s the Perfect reason to head in the door of your local McDonald’s


1- Go during a NON rush time

2 – Ask to speak to a Manager

3- Take the photo of what Lisa Talip Made (stating an associate in Chicago created this design that you can recreate)

(Side note NEVER post someone elses work on your Blog or website without Giving credit to the Artist and Person who created it. I’m suggesting print out the photo as an inspiration piece to share with target client or create other items you would like to propose along with other items you think may work well in their location.

4. Plan in advance what you will charge for the Exact things you are proposing

5- Take your business Card

6- Dress like a Professional business person: – Your company LOGO Polo, shirt , Slacks. If you do not have a nice logo shirt then wear a nice Polo, button down shirt or blouse.

7 – Put a huge smile on your face, stand tall and shoulder back.

8 – Speak with confidence that you are offering them a creative and Perfect way to promote their new service.

9 – Have ideas of items you could hang from the ceiling with Magnets if they have drop ceilings – the large white Geo with yellow 5 inch and a piece of bacon – or with McDonald’s
bag or cup would look great!
Even Helium filled Goldenrod and white balloons would be fun and put the weight into their coffee cup or bag.
Or Goldenrod and white topiary’s from the ceiling if drop ceilings – have OPTIONS and pricing ready!


If “you don’t have time to go in person” PICK UP THE PHONE!!! Call them!

In person is best…but a Phone call is better than not taking action!

OCT 6th is the official date – but some stores are doing it now so they may want the balloon ASAP!!!

GET your stuff together and GET to your Local McDonalds!!!

Worse thing that happens is they say NO — you then ask if they would like decorations for Christmas – or other promotions.

You thank them for their time and you you pat yourself on the back for GETTING out and making a sales call!
