    I love these ideas. There are some really great ones on here. I love the Special Customer's Lunch idea. I also think the one about calling customers just to see how they are doing and to say hello-without any sales pitch is really great. I don't see too many businesses implementing ideas like these. Great work!

    I think the one about contacting clients just to see how they are doing and to say hello-without any advertisement is wonderful. I don't see too many organizations applying concepts like these.
