As cool as it might be to give your customers that one fantastic experience they’ll never forget, it can be hard to pull it off with limited resources or a small budget. But the good news is you don’t have to do it alone.

In fact, partnering with other companies to make something awesome happen is a great opportunity to spread word of mouth — for each business involved.

One dentist in Bee Caves, Texas did it by teaming up with a hair salon and an optometrist. The once-in-a-lifetime experience? A makeover from all three. Tomasik Family Dental, Shear Headcase, and Bee Cave Vision held a contest for one customer to win complimentary dental work, professional styling, and optometry services.

Here's the winner, Janet, showing off her new look.

That meant each company was spreading the word, reaching a wider audience, and offering an amazing opportunity. Their combined contributions made the contest that much more remarkable and earned them an advocate for life.
