Customer Satisfaction is the Key

Having a business is easy but getting it moving forward and prosper is a different story. You need to have customers coming back and patronize whatever you have to offer them. And if you aren’t going to satisfy them with the kind of service you have then the day that you’re going to close down is numbered. So customer satisfaction is what I believe the key and most important factor.

And that is also what’s in my mind when I set up our e-store knowing the fact that there are fierce competitions in luring customers your way and make them come back for more. You also have to be patient or perhaps extend your patience when there’s scarcity of customers in the beginning as you are still trying to build up name and reputation. But it doesn’t stop right there as you have to maintain if not improve your customer’s satisfactions. This reminds me several months back about the great service that we experience in getting our drinking water most especially at that time since we just came back from our vacation.

Perhaps, it is the reason why hubby did not pursue his plan of adding a different brand of bottled water so we won’t run out of drinking water in the house. So I always put it in my mind that a quality service for the customers may not bear fruit now but someday it will. You just have to be patient and do not hastily get those big results when you are still starting running your business. Don’t expect to gain huge customer turn out overnight but having an online presence will help you ease the burden of tapping the previously unreachable and potential customers.

A Good Gift for the Holiday

It’s less than ten days already before Christmas holiday and I have seen a lot of shoppers in the mall as well. Perhaps they want to avoid the crowd in the last minute shopping spree and at the same time, there are lots of shops who are offering discounted prices. Branded products are on sale also anywhere in the malls, so everyone is tempted with the reduced price tags.

I am just hoping that I can find a Chuck Taylor designs like the converse high tops at musicians friend because it will be a good present for my relatives considering that it never come cheap in regular season. That’s why everyone should take advantage in this kind of situation when they are on sale and also buy products during their off seasons. I’m pretty sure you’ll get a good bargain during those times. So I hope that you already bought your presents for your loved ones and relatives before they run out of stocks.

The Process of Losing Weight

I’ve been blogging and advocating about healthy balanced diet and some practical weight loss tips and that everyone should not expect to lose weight overnight. The process of losing weight the right way is not that easy yet it’s not that hard as you think it is. We just have to look into the right combination of diet and workout regimen whether it is high intensity or low intensity. And recently, there have been a bunch of weight loss camp coming out in order to deter boredom, as replacement in going to a routine workout in the gym.

We all know and statistics have shown that most of those who lost interest in continuing their workout are due to the lack of determination from the start. Repetitive regimen is another factor that might lead into discontinuing the whole program itself. And a fitness retreat to break that monotony might be the good solution and perhaps the only way to shed that excess flab in a healthy manner.

A weight loss retreat is what I’m talking about because the four walls of the gym could be a humdrum but being in nature and making changes in the environment should help you attain your desired weight and losing inches in your waist. But don’t forget that losing weight and getting rid of the unwanted fats is not just about training and food but also having a good rest is important as well. A relaxing environment will add to a restful sleep and in regaining your strength and endurance.

Paper Based Prints

Despite the enormous advantage of the digital era, the catalog and magazine are still cannot be outdated. And these paper based prints will always be around and part of any corporate documents since it provides comprehensive information of the company itself either about their products or services rendered. The only good thing is that, you can easily create your designs then have it outsourced for printing through and with the use of the internet services.

And this industry like the zoo catalog printing is growing in numbers and probably will stay for a longer period. While the pricing I’m sure will only differ on the thickness, durability and the additional services the company are offering. And perhaps the glossy appearance of the cover and pages does matter as well which will add up in the cost of the finished product. But nonetheless, no matter what kind of products and services that a certain company has, I will always go for the company that offers good customer service because you can conveniently go back to them in case there are some problems you encountered.

Off to the Movie House

We went out yesterday afternoon after hubby came from work to go to the movie house. But it’s not the regular thing that you are thinking or expect because what we watched isn’t a love story or an action movie. We were in the movie house because of our son and we’re watching the Tarzan cartoon movie. And I am laughing at him when the movie has started because he will stand on his seat and would act as if he’s going to jump every time when Tarzan leaps and jumps. He is imitating what Tarzan is doing in the movie.

I’m pretty sure he is enjoying the movie on the big screen. I think this isn’t the last one and I’m sure there will be more to come especially now that he starts going to school. The only thing with him is that he is scared with live mascots and he will hide in our back. But as long as it won’t move then he will be happy to be around and playing. In fact, he was posing beside the Jollibee mascot when we were in Cebu, as if he was having a good time.
