Chris Brogan is a great resource of free flowing discoveries of what works, what doesn’t and new discoveries in business development and marketing. He just put up a quick post about how “his” cab driver (read the post to understand why I placed quotation marks around “his”) demonstrated incredible business intelligence, teaching “me more about business than most business books.”
I’ve ridden in dozen of cabs and only once, in Las Vegas, did a driver engage me as to my need for rides in the immediate future. And, like Chris, I too took advantage of the opportunity to call “my” cab.
Ask for the sale people. It’s right there if you’ll only ask.
