Chocolate-Covered Grasshoppers

Chocolate Covered Grasshoppers
These marketers know how to get attention!

I received a FedEx package today. I opened it and there was a package of chocolate-covered grasshoppers! Attached was a card that said:

ENTREPRENEURS can CHANGE the WORLD. JOIN the MOVEMENT NOW!
grasshopper.com/idea

I had no idea about grasshopper.com, but I now I know! Turns out it is an advanced telephone service for entrepreneurs. Evidently, they are rebranding gotvmail.com to grasshopper.com and this is one of their marketing tools. See the video below for more information on changing the world. LOL

That sure is an innovative idea to get attention. Sure to be in the business you need to hold the attention of your customers. Good one.

That was a very eye opening video and you had to be a quick reader as well. I will check the site out to see if it is right for me. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Friends 4 Life!

@fivemonkies-Yes, that is what I thought as well.

@prop trans-Thanks for stopping by.

@nin-I won't forget it.

@eddie-Thanks for watching the video. I hope entrepreneurs use their power for good instead of lining their pockets.

@kasandria-I still have them. I am a vegetarian. I have tried to get friends and family interested, but no takers so far!
