Summer Fling on Thursday, March 13 at The Hill.‏

Redefining The Summer Share – Pick and Choose from 4 Top Destinations!
Are you ready for a Summer Fling?

Everyone does Spring Fling events, but I like to be different and, as you probably know, I am obsessed with summer. Of course, you can read into it (and you don’t have to read more than a page or two) to see the obvious dual meaning and innuendos implied…all good for marketing

Check out the Urban Dictionary definition of Summer Fling here. I am NOT saying we’re taking it that far. But you’ve gotta love how Urban Dictionary can find a dirty meaning to any colloquial phrase or expression.

Sorry, I digress. Back to the party or Summer Fling. Attend Thursday for another fun after work happy hour where the ever-growing group of friends joining us this summer will be coming together.

As I’ve mentioned numerous times, if we don’t already know each other, then we MUST speak on the phone before you join us this summer. Putting together a good group is the key to a great vacation!

Look forward to speaking soon and to an amazing summer!

  Are you an explorer?


Yes. You missed the Early Sign-Up prices for The Summer Share – Redefined

No, that’s is not your last chance to get a good price on your summer vacations. If you book 2 different destination in your package you get $50 off, 3 destinations $125 and for the true explorer who joins for all 4 you are rewarded with $200 off!

I spent what seems like thousands of hours putting together this summer’s schedule.  So to motivate you to see all this hard work in action, we are offering The Explorer Special.

Break out of your rut of always going to same spot weekend after weekend and try something new. In all fairness, for over 10 years I was a creature of habit and only did the Hamptons plus the Fall Finale Weekend at Club Getaway. If I can change, so can you 🙂

Call me at 212-579-4844 for more info or email david@davidshapiro for the current prices and packages.

Looking forward to exploring with you this summer!

I need some feedback… 


Even though I studied business in college, I only took one marketing class. I thought marketing was all hype and no substance so I stuck to finance and accounting. Ironically, marketing is what I now do more than anything else.

I incorporated 2 new marketing ideas into this email:

► Summer Fling – a play on the common ‘Spring Fling‘ phrase as the name for Thursday’s event.
► The Explorer Special – using promotional prices to encourage a desired behavioral outcome and make people feel like they are still getting a deal. Everyone wants a deal. Right?

I tend to get these ideas when I am about to fall asleep or in the middle of the night. I quickly type them into my phone which is always next to my bed and hope the ideas still seem wise in the morning.

Your feedback on these ideas and any other ideas that you think we should incorporated into how we put together and promote our events and vacations would be personally appreciated!

The astute reader may realize that this section encouraging a dialogue may also be considered a good marketing strategy to further build client relationships…I am just doing the best I can with only one marketing course under my belt 🙂
