Someone explained to me how to send Darcy Willson-Rymer, managing director of Starbucks in the U.K. & Ireland, a direct message on Twitter. So I will, in response to his kind note. But my pitch to him takes more than140 characters, so I’m going to post my message here, and use the Twitter message to bring him here.
A lot of trouble, but potentially worth it. It’s a cosa de bizaneese, as Sollozzo would say. Here’s the message:
Thanks for the kind word on my blog post!
But seriously, would you pass on my idea to someone in your marketing area? I truly think my blog (and possibly other blogs, but mine first) could be part of a great symbiotic relationship with Starbucks. Starbucks stores are full of people with laptops. Advertising on blogs seems a natural fit. And if those bloggers are blogging FROM Starbucks stores, you’ve got a great promotional information loop going.
I think it could work. And in case you’ve lost the link to my idea, here it is: https://bradwarthen.com/?p=1325
Hey, I’d even be glad to go blog from some of your stores in the UK (if my fare were paid). Ireland, too.
Here’s hoping someone at your end sees the potential I see,
How was that? I’m rather new to making business pitches…
