Jackie Huba, of marketing consultancy Wabash & Lake sent in this viral marketing idea:
"Have you ever received a thank you note for "tell a friend?" I just got one and I think it's pretty well done. Thought you might be interested to see....
No, I am not looking for a job, but I guess I am on Spencer Stuart's list. They sent me a email regarding a marketing position which I passed on to a friend. Check out the reply I received. Extra bonus points for inviting me to "share my expertise and insights" with them. (Only improvement would be to sign it with a real person's name)."
The emailed note Jackie got:
