If you follow trends on social media we see allot of #PayItForward – what does this mean exactly? > Pay it forward is an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying it to others instead of to the original benefactor. The concept is old, but the phrase may have been coined by Lily Hardy Hammond in her 1916 book In the Garden of Delight. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pay_it_forward .
While Pay it Forward Day focuses on marketing the concept of selfless giving for just one day a year, everyday can be Pay it Forward Day… Here are three recommendations:
1) Endorse your local business by giving them a review on Four Square or Facebook.
2) Write a recommendation on LinkedIn for a colleague / associate / someone you have done business with.
3) Send thank you notes to your customers for letting you earn their business.
