services: WORD OF MOUTH MARKETING - 02/25/13 07:03 AM
This is where the rubber meets the road and results don't lie. When someone brags, boasts, shares, comments and insists that you have the same good experience they did if you use so and so or buy this product.... then something of value must be taking place. Word of mouth is like a living reference, a working resume and a first hand testimony of what to expect and from whom READ THE REVIEWS AND COMMENTS When you visit with products online, they have customer review and comment sections usually with a score or a rating. Today that is what people use (7 comments)
services: SUPERMARKETS ARE WELL RUN BUSINESSES part 2 - 01/08/13 06:57 AM
In part one, we explored the supermarket and great effort is put into the word super as it is a well polished and presented place to shop with lots of dynamics going on. Here you will see how billions of revenue are generated and it is a living business plan that works.. THE MARKETS THEMSELVES WOKE-UP ONE DAY The markets themselves woke up one day and discovered a gold mine right under their own noses. Billions were being spent by others to promote their products and were successful. Markets decide to copy the coloring, packaging and positioning of the other products (12 comments)
services: SUPERMARKETS ARE WELL RUN BUSINESSES part 1 - 01/08/13 06:56 AM
Next time you visit the neighborhood market, take a moment to see how it is set-up. It is a business first and there is a reason and a rhyme to all that goes on inside those four walls. First off, everything that one needs called the basics are found on the outside walls themselves. Produce, baked goods, dairy and meats all line the walls. In the center are more the optional items LIKE OR NEED IS PRESENTED The place is set-up to either help you find what you want or to the delight of all concerned, cause you to shop. They want (2 comments)
services: WHO IS BEHIND THE CURTAIN? - 12/29/12 07:14 AM
People at large want to know just who or what is behind everything when it comes to purchasing services or goods. They get bombarded with advertisements, marketing campaigns, leave behinds, tokens, Internet ads, and even referrals or word of mouth telling them about something they should look into, have or hire POINT OF SALE Eventually however the biggest impression will be when the actual contact is made and we get to see the person behind the scene running the show or the one that has been appointed to do so. That is the final ultimate moment of truth for most people. (6 comments)
services: PEOPLE WITH MONEY LOOK FOR PEOPLE TO SPEND IT ON - 12/06/12 07:05 AM
For the wealthy or well off or even the careful person who just wants what is represented, there is a serious lack of constant reliable services of people that will actually do what they say they will do. Often money is not the issue as much as if the service rendered was completed as represented and in a timely professional manner FOR INSTANCE I know of a doctor who makes $20k a month and wants a Real Estate service performed. He is quick to to offer $2-3000 upfront I am told to get the necessary results. The first person up took the ball and (8 comments)
services: ACTION PLANS IDEAS MOVING WITH A PURPOSE - 10/24/12 01:50 PM
To do business one has to be in business. That meant rising to the start-up occasion using an action plan and monitoring the ACTION. It is as simple as having the right tools, communicating effectively and providing a service. From there, you can tweak the endeavor to make it go where you want. BEING IN BUSINESS IS NOT HARD Today it is so easy to represent that you are a business. If you go back 50 years, you had to have an office and show up there from specified times, dressed accordingly and be accommodating. Today, you can literally carry your office (0 comments)
services: BUSINESS CARDS ARE LEAVE BEHINDS & PROMOTIONALS - 10/14/12 06:49 AM
Over the years, business cards remained an interesting subject and a relevant one too. You can do so much with them. You can over do as well. What do we do to make the card functional and modern and part of our business plan without trying to cram everything in it? You got two spaces available called front and back. With font reduced, that can tell quite a story.. MY PERSONAL USES Now I have two interests going that I wanted promoted and kept simple. So on one side, I did the Real Estate data and on the other side, I promoted the (9 comments)
services: WHEN SHOULD WE SELL AND WHEN SHOULD WE TELL - 06/05/12 04:48 PM
Imagine you go shopping in a retail store and someone keeps following you around. Bothersome to say the least, but you manage to shrug it off. Suppose that same person keeps trying to sell you something. That can be a turn-off. Now, suppose a person is trying to tell you something meaningful like a sale that is starting or ending or some free gift or discount is available if you shop today..mm-mm...sounds good thank you INVITE AND WELCOME WORKS In the seller example, we respond to being pushed...PUSHINESS. No one likes it. Annoying comes to mind. People don't even push back (11 comments)
services: WHAT DOES YOUR NAME REALLY MEAN - 04/03/12 07:59 AM
I remember looking up my name one day. Today it is easier to do because you can go to the Internet. So, I look it up and see my name RICHARD means = strong, hardy, powerful and brave...My last name NAGGAR means educated person or carpenter. Oh yes. We have a BINGO here...Now how did my folks know all this in advance? See that remains a puzzle to me HEY YOU...YEA YOU... Now, how about your name? What does it mean? I will excuse you right now to go to a quick Google search and then come back to share. Does what you find compliment (4 comments)
services: SYSTEMS ARE ONLY GOOD IF THEY WORK AND WE WORK THEM part 2 - 08/15/11 10:25 AM
In part 1, we talked about systems at large that govern the population and how the masses are so dependent on systems wherever we go. Now let us take a look at our personal systems that need to be relied on and developed as well. Part 1 is the outer systems and part 2 we will talk about the inner systems THE SYSTEM OF BODY HEALTH Our health has to be safe guarded and that means treating ourselves correctly and with care less we cause part of the inner systems to receive more stress than what they were designed for. Not (4 comments)
services: SYSTEMS ARE ONLY GOOD IF THEY WORK AND WE WORK THEM part 1 - 08/15/11 10:23 AM
We are a country of systems. We have to move bulk; people, goods, food, cars, clothes, and hundreds of items and services too. We depend on these systems and when they fail, we feel it. It is no longer about the individuals needs, but the needs of hundreds of millions of people. People get lost in systems and systems can fail Here are some thoughts on various SYSTEMS to prime the pump for discussion and reflection: 1. What happens when you turn the key in your car ignition and that system fails? 2. How about your Utilities systems going out? Gas? (0 comments)
