Improve or Maintain Exceptional Customer Service
If you are a one man or woman operation or even a small firm that
doesn’t have the luxury of a support staff – you can still provide
customer service that is second to none.
Here are a few tips to provide extraordinary service to your valued
customers when you are not in your office and immediately
1. When you’re away from the office be sure to have your phone lines
forwarded to your cell phone. This is offered as a basic option for
most providers these days. This will ensure you are accessible to
your customers even when you’re way from the office.
2. Having your voice mail notify you of each message is another
great way to respond quickly to a customers needs. Most voicemail
systems have a notice feature built in that will alert you of a new
message. This way you only have to call in for messages when you are
alerted that one has been left for you.
3. The simplest solution is plan and simple - check your voicemail
often, and return calls swiftly while you're away. With the basic
use of a cell phone you have know excuses not to respond to a client
promptly – keep in mind they also know the resources available and
will not tolerate delays in getting back with them for long.

STRATEGY & EXECUTION:
Playing on the skeptical notion that free checking is as incredible
as pigs that fly,
this company introduced free checking at its 60 Arizona branches.
Designed as a flying pig, a piggy bank was created to give the
broadcast and print advertising a personality and to be used as a
premium. Customers who signed up for free checking were offered the
piggy bank in return for opening a savings account, applying for
credit or other Norwest products.
The 14,085 new checking accounts and 26,000 additional products
purchased exceeded over projections by 70% and 67% respectively.

Promotional Products Don't Work, Unless You Do This...
Author: Cindy Carrera
Promoting your business is hard work! You have the aching head and
feet to prove it. And if you're like most business owners, you're
tired tired tired of purchasing
promotional products that get
little to no results.
That's because you haven't done the most important thing first:
plan. Yes, purchasing promotional products takes more than skimming
through a mail order catalog or clicking to a promotion product site
and placing an order. You need to put some time and thought in to
what and how you plan to use the promotional product.
You need to ask questions like what's the basic idea of this
promotion. What results do I want? What IS the promotion exactly?
Who's it for, youngsters or oldsters? Where do they live? If I
received this promotional product, would I use it or toss it?
Which is probably the single most important aspect of
promotional items that marketers
totally fail to consider. If they wouldn't use that cheap pen or
soda can themselves, why would they think their customers would use
So never, ever underestimate your customer-even if that customer or
person who will be using your promotional product is a child or
teenager. In fact, you can pretty much count on the fact that unless
you do some serious planning for your promotion, any promotional
item or product you give away will be taken home and given to the
That's why it's essential to plan your promotional product purchases
around a central idea, much like you would for an advertising
campaign. And that means knowing if there's a need for your
promotional product. It isn't likely that people are beating down
your door to get a notepad or refrigerator magnet from you.
If people don't want it or can't use it, a promotional product isn't
worth very much to them. The reverse is true too. If the promotional
product doesn't directly relate to your business and give people a
reason to buy your product or use your services, then it isn't going
to do your bottom line any good at all. Worse, the money you
spend on it is pretty much wasted.
So pull together your top people and have a brainstorming session
for good promotional product ideas. Find out what your customers
really want-and more importantly, what you mean to accomplish with
your promotional product. This ensures you'll have dynamite
promotional products that get you
the results you want every time.
