YP Handbook: Leave Your Card

Every once in a while, we’ll come across a YP blog post that features ImpactCR.  Who doesn’t love when your group is recognized for how awesome we are?  Christoph Trappe hung out at the ImpactCR table at the Corridor Welcome Reception and came across a pretty innovative way to hit up those who might be a little… shall we say… lazy.

Email News: Easy to sign up – Drop Card in Bowl

I admit it.  I’m lazy.  I don’t want to fill out long forms (on paper or online) to sign up for email newsletters.  You might not want to either.

With that in mind this caught my eye at the ImpactCR table at the Corridor Welcome Reception at the Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance on May 7, 2013.

This is so easy.  Leave your card in the bowl to stay in touch.  No lengthy sign-up required.


The easier the sign-up the more likely I am to get on the list, especially if I’m on the fence or whether to sign up or  not.

Full disclosure:  I’m on the ImpactCR Board, staffed the table that night but had nothing to do with the set-up.  Thanks, Mallory Mohwinkle!

Christoph and Katie

While my opinion may be slightly biased, this is pretty genius!  Quick, to the point and I don’t have to wait for someone else to fill out the signup sheet and I can move on to more important stuff like networking and finding out about local businesses and organizations.  Great job, Mallory!  Huge thanks to Katie and Christoph for manning the table.
