During their meeting, general managers received an executive pen and were asked to “sign up” and commit to support the program. Upon signing, the GM’s sales representatives received a “launch kit” with a built-in sound chip and featured a toll-free number which sales people could call for help when they had an immediate documentation questions. Also included, was a “penvelope” that included a pen and morse code decoder with copy asking recipients to watch the enclosed video.
