Here's how I adapted your Red Rose Tipping idea.
I found an Ebay seller who sells fake roses by the
pallet. I got 5000 roses.
I Used to go into companies cold. On Friday just before they
get paid I explained the advantages of our health
insurance VS what their employer can provide.
Employers are basically dropping all insurance
coverage for their employees.
NOW... I hand out a Long Stem Rose to everyone
in the room. Thank Them for their time. And only
then launch into my spiel. The Rose Result?
31% more Insurance sold. Sometimes higher.
