Hi Everyone:

Just recently, I started my own gift basket and flower business.

I'm enclosing my website so that you could see the baskets and flowers that I carry. I'm so excited about my new business because I actually help people save money on their gifting needs and I receive an
opportunity work at home and own my own business.

As my friend, I'm asking for your help. Can you take a look at my website and see how we can help you with your gifting needs.

Would you please do two things for me.

1.) Just take a moment to consider the holidays, birthdays, anniversaries or other special occasions when you could use my gifts . Then, just send me the approximate dates. I'll put them in my birthday
alarm and send you a reminder a few weeks before just so you can look
through my online catalog to see if something fits the occasion. As my
friend, you know there is no obligation to buy anything---I just want to
remind you to look.

2.) Refer me to someone else. It would mean a lot to me if you
would refer me to a few of your other friends in case they need what I
market. Since they are referred by you, I'll make sure they are
100% satisfied! Please copy me on the email so I can follow up
later with them directly since I know you're very busy.

You know I wouldn't be asking you but I'm so excited about my business and I'm excited to get if off the ground very quickly! Please take just one minute to respond to my email with your potential gift
giving occasions and send also send this on to a few friends.

Thanks very much. If there's anything I can do now for you, just let me know.

Your friend,

I'll definitely keep your site in mind for Mother's Day!

Peace and blessings lady,
I read your intro letter and looked at the web site. The baskets are very nice however (if you will allow me to make a few suggestions) in the letter the only inducements I read were you can save money and help me. In my personal opinion, your letter didn't have enough flavor.

Try adding descriptive words such as beautiful, unique, best seller... For me, those would be better inducements than saving money while helping someone that I do not know. Try this as your last sentence: Gift cards are nice; but sometimes people want to know that you cared enough to take time to shop for them. Or something along that line. Also, is there an opportunity for you to benefit if some one signs up to sell under you? I didn't read any mention of it in your letter; and in today's economy you never know. You may want to add that as a P.S. (Post Script)

Personally, I'm still in rebound mode from a nearly devastating financial situation; ;therefore every penny counts like a dollar. Otherwise I would be happy to give you a play with an order of flowers.

Peace to you and I hope my observations help.
