Marketing to a famous person

Few more days of vacation left for me then it is back to the 9-5 job.

About 1.5 years ago I worked up a big marketing package of my candles and soap which I sent to Kat Von D of the LA Ink show. See the advantage of living in Hollywood is that there are a number of famous people around me that I can send things to.

These are the pictures of what I basically sent. I made up a tool box filled with 3 candles(the blue one was for the messenger who took the package to Kat), tons of soaps and some aroma ornies. I also included what is called a leave behind(bottom picture) which is basically a handmade photo catalog of my work. Never got a call back but it was worth a try right?!!?

What an original concept! I can't believe they didn't contact you just to say "Thanks, but no thanks" or even acknowledge receipt. Good job though!

Patrice is right: I can't believe they didn't even have the courtesy to acknowledge the receipt of your pkg. What a lovely package it was too!

I agree with Patrice and TeresaR.

That was packaged such a professional that I would have thought she or her management would have had the decency to send a Thank You note.

I guess with the world is today, I think she may have thought you were a stalker..shame.

Good luck with your candles though, they are beautiful ;)
