This episode is a real gift to our audience and after listening, you’ll totally get it! Literally. John Ruhlin from Giftology is on the show today and he is absolutely amazing when it comes to gifting with the right amount of thoughtfulness and meaning. There’s been a paradigm shift in marketing recently, so the idea of gift-giving is very timely and John has a knack for staying top of mind, and growing relationships and referrals all through the art of gift-giving. 

John works with some big companies and agencies and he discusses his process as to how to figure out what your intention is, what your strategy is, who to send the gift to, and what your budget should be. We go deep into how to pick the right gift, how much money to spend, and what to do if you are just starting out. We also talk about how the power of gifting comes back to you as well as how to justify the cost to determine your ROR – return on relationships. We even talk about how to gift better to your spouse or significant other. At the end of the day, John wants people to show gratitude with action and not just lip service as this is something that can generate business and referrals with an impact that can last a long time. After you’ve listened, check out our shows that we recorded with Jordan Harbinger and Omari Broussard for more tips on relationship building and reaching out to the right audience for your business.

If you take care of the family in business, everything else takes care of it itself.” – John Ruhlin
