Pull the Trigger 
(triggered emails that is!)

Triggered emails are generated based on an interaction a customer has with you.

- The welcome email. When a new customer buys or signs up, do they get a welcome email? Now is the time to tell them how great they are for choosing you. Better yet, how great you are and the item/service you are providing for them. A bit of personal communication that goes beyond the sale. (And maybe a discount coupon if they return again?)

- The Reorder email. Does the sale/service have an expected consumption date? An email reminding them it’s that time to reorder as they may be running out of product soon.

- We want you back. Has there been no activity from a customer for a certain number of days/months etc.? Just a note to let them know how much you miss their business. ( And don’t forget that important discount coupon if they return!)

At Gozooko, the customer always comes first. Our lines of products are customer driven, and our goal is to meet your needs and to help your business grow. As always we welcome your comments and suggestions. We look forward to hearing from you. GozookoGuys@gozooko.com

Angela Friedman Launch Event

Last month, we were treated to Angela Friedman’s launch event showcasing her Versailles collection. It was a beautiful experience that felt more like an adventure than a launch party. The night started out with me and Mozz Manzoor heading out to the gallery where Angela was holding her event. It felt great going to event not tied to the garment district or the showrooms in midtown. We walked inside and were led to the freight elevator.
As we made the slow climb up, I had the urgent sense that I was going to be part of something special. The doors opened and the sound of a violin filled our ears. We were let out into a gorgeous space filled with guests networking and enjoying drinks and pastries.
Off to the side, there was, what could be best described as a set, a miniature world evoking a bygone Baroque world. In the center, a wonderful vintage, velvety blue couch. It looked gorgeous and knowing what Angela’s pieces looked like I couldn’t wait to see the models take their place in this little world.
Angela didn’t disappoint. Everyone was treated to a parade of three models showcasing each of Angela’s stunning pieces. We were able to see Angela’s corsets, slips, kimono robes, lingerie and camisole sets in action with a live violinist in the background. It was magical. We filmed the evening and put together a short video for our readers to enjoy.

If you missed this incredible event, don’t worry, you can also experience Angela’s collection at the Lingerie Designer Showcase this August 5th – 8th at the AKA Hotel here in NYC.
Buyers are encourage to make an appointment with Angela

Pipedream would like to thank the 2 Brians for letting us be a part of their ANME coverage.”
Eldorado's purchasing department placed several new orders for some of the most innovative and unique products this season. Retailers can rest assured the experiencedteam picked up only the best of the new products offered, deemed to be the strongest potential sellers.

Loud, Mad, or Sad 
The psychology instructor had just finished a lecture on mental health and was giving an oral test. 
Speaking specifically about manic depression, she asked, "How would you diagnose a patient who walks back and forth screaming at the top of his lungs one minute, then sits in a chair weeping uncontrollably the next?" 
A young man in the rear raised his hand and answered, "A basketball coach?"
