Service Wins The Game

“Being on par in terms of price and quality only gets you in the game.  Service wins the game.!” Tony Alexandr

During  a recent call that I co-host on a monthly basis with George Ross for a select private group of business owners and entrepreneurs, we discussed how to create the “wow factor” in non-real estate businesses like a convenience store or hardware store.  George advised all  to focus on the personal touch.  Sure appearances and merchandising are important.  Getting to know your customer, demonstrating a sincere interest in the person is what keeps people coming back.

I have no favorite stores any longer. I mostly shop on line and even the on line experience is mixed with ease of shopping. I do have a few favorite restaurants and as a business traveler I have a few (very few) favorite hotels.  However, nearly every day there is an opportunity for a business to provide memorable service and they do. Trouble is the memories are not very positive in most cases.

Here is a recent example. It happened this morning. Jos A Bank is offering a two day buy 1 get 2 free special. There are a couple items I really like from that store.  This is a great opportunity for a deal. However, their on line shopping cart is not working properly for the special.  So I called and a pleasant lady helped me by phone.  When I received my order confirmation, it was wrong …very obviously wrong since there was only one of an item I order instead of three.  I called back to customer service and hopefully the order will be correct now.

Look at all the steps and look at the additional time and look at the impression I have of this business.  Now I will shop again when I see a great deal since there are items where I like the fit and quality.  Guess what there are many places where I can get the right fit and quality.  I am not finding places where I feel I am honored as a customer.  See the opportunity?

I know if I were to visit certain specialty stores I would receive personalized attention.  However, I do not have the time and neither do a lot of other people. There are a growing number of businesses that promote deals: Groupon ,  Deal of the Day and many more.  Nobody is promoting service…big opportunity.

Speaking of service ….that’s my business. Actually your success is my business.

Root For Success….Wayne Allyn Root Speaks On Today’s Opportunities

Wayne Allyn Root  is the leading candidate for the Presidential nomination by the Libertarian Party in 2012.  He is best known today for his energetic outspoken views on individual freedom which means he is very outspoken on the reason for the debt, unemployment, restrictions to business growth and other less than desirable situations  the US finds itself in today.

I have the honor of hosting a private monthly call with Wayne. This experience has helped me understand his passionate focus on the opportunity for individuals to become very successful in any economic environment.  This was very evident in Wayne’s response to a key question asked during a recent call that I am able to share with you. In summary, the question was about how an individual can make a difference in our society dominated by growing government and debt.  Wayne advised us to focus on the opportunities for individual success.   He said there are  more than 3,000 new millionaires every day in the US.  These people are achieving this success by taking action.

The number one action step successful people take is to start their own business. Wayne highlighted a recent article in a major national publication detailing the benefits of network marketing. I spoke of my experience coaching people developing a real estate investment business. Wayne shared a number of examples of his success starting with an idea and relentlessly pursuing the idea. He is relentlessly pursuing at path that will take him to the White House. He has never failed to achieve something he set out to do and this will be no exception.

Action Steps

1. Click Here to visit Root For America and meet Wayne Allyn Root.

2. Register for his alerts.

3. The calls are for a select group. However, I do have an inside track. If you are interested in being  a member, email me and I will see what I can do.

READ THIS IMPORTANT ARTICLE REGARDING THE CURRENT BUSINESS CLIMATE:

 

The Business World Is Changing.

What worked 6 months ago, 1 year ago, 3, 5, and 10 years ago, no longer works in today’s economy.

The 1990’s tech boom and the tech bubble… the real estate boom and it’s bubble…it all caused major shifts and ripples in how we do business forever.

Where were you during those times? Did you profit?… Did you take action?… Did you get out at the right time?

The US Post office will be bankrupt by 2012 unless they get bailed out. Mail is down 19% and it stands to lose over $6 billion. Over $1.9 trillion email and texts will be sent out this year.

Blockbuster is bankrupt while Netflix is up 43,101% since 1999 and is projected to have $2.2 billion in revenue this year.

Borders Book store is bankrupt and Amazon will have sales of $14.9 billion and is up 808% since 1999, showing no signs of slowing down.

CD’s and the record business are pretty much out of business and are down 60%. Record stores are extinct and iTunes are up 1,169,900% since 2003. ITunes will have sales this year of $11.7 billion.

This means we need to strategize starting now. Here are the things you need to do:

1)     Focus more on creating strategic partners and even joint venture with competitors.

2)     Surround yourself with A-Players, millionaires and do-ers in the business world.

3)     Reposition and change the way you do business every 3 months. (Because what works now may not work 3 months from now.)

A lot of companies like Blockbuster, Borders, the CD and Record industry, and the US Postal office are bankrupt or near their end because they failed to adapt their companies and remained complacent.

No one is ever on top all the time. We need to practice Zero-Base Thinking to change our thinking and our strategies every step of the way.

I am transforming the theme of Mega Partnering IV to reflect change. Together we will create the business model of the future. Something we can all use, apply and help us differentiate ourselves from the competition.

Lead Capture Toolkit adds  to your Facebook page the option to offer an incentive for a Facebook Fan to join your email list. Once set up, (the set up is very straight forward)  the process is very smooth for a subscriber. Subscribers receive the opt-in confirmation in their email which in compliance with no spam practices.
