Last week, I took you on a tour of Ladders headquarters in New York City. Despite a first-day-of-Spring snowstorm here in Manhattan, our hearts were warmed by your many kind comments!
So, each year after taking you on a little photographic tour, I ask a favor in return:
Would you mind sending us a photo of yourself for our walls here at Ladders headquarters?
You see, we work all day on the internet, which means we don’t get to see you, our customers, in person. And what with the long hours, heartfelt dedication and total commitment to seeing you land your next gig, it makes an enormous difference to us when we can put a face with the, ummm, email address.
So I’d like to ask you to do me a favor and send along a high-resolution photo of yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each year, about 10,000 subscribers like you send in their photos, and they now grace our walls, hallways and conference rooms. Our favorites have included the Marine in Iraq on a camel, the sportsman with a turkey, the subscriber who crossed the Alps on a bicycle in an eight-stage road race, and the loads and loads of pictures we get of families – at holidays, on vacations, at Opening Day, or just hanging out. Understanding that we are responsible for helping you and your family really hits home with the team here at Ladders.
Oh, and please be sure to include a little blurb – your name, hometown, your profession, and how you’re using Ladders for your career – when you send your pics along to email@example.com.
We post your pictures along our walls and in our conference rooms to give our people a daily look at the folks we are helping. You can imagine how powerful it is during meetings when our customer is right there in the room with us.
So please send along your high-resolution photo – we print them out at 8″ x 10″ size. It would mean a lot to me and to the team, and we’ll “see” you soon!
I’ll be rooting for you, face-to-face!
