My partner is back at TAFE this week, studying commercial cookery, (soon she will be using her wonderful Asian cooking skills on people other than me)
So I go into the campus cafeteria, and I’m surprised to find the prices of good and drink around the same as any other cafe. This for supposedly “broke” students?
The place was of course full, don’t you think for a second that the pricing is putting anyone off. Everyones got their hot meals, their large soft drinks, and I can’t see a single home made sandwich anywhere.
Harris Scarfe in Adelaide is moving, and they have a moving sale on. Last day today, and I reckon there are more people in here than there are items left to sell.
Even I’ve grabbed a couple of things but the point is: people still do like a good bargain but there are strategies you must remember, the kind of thing also taught by Russell Brunson:
1. Make sure you are capturing details. Of course HS are not asking for anyones name or address. They ain’t that smart. But they could at least offer some kind of deal to be had at the new store for people who join a mailing list, even if it’s just email.
I’m sitting here writing this on a Saturday morning because my internet isn’t working. I’ve also been watching a new internet marketing video course, but at the same time, wondering what would happen if I woke up one day and there was no more internet.
And if you think it could never happen, well I’m not sure what the risks are, but I wouldn’t be my house on it never happening. What about a super-virus of some kind which takes out critical Internet systems? What about some kind of disaster befalling Google – how much traffic would you lose if this one company went offline?
Sitting in the car waiting for my partner, I’m across the road from a couple of retail locations for lease. Sign reads for one of them:
“established bakery site, highly successful location, 2 car parks, untapped lunch trade, stock as valued for sale,” etc
Highly successful location? Then why has the landlord been left with a bakery full of stock, but no tenants? I guess I define success a little differently to the agent who put tougher this sign.
Did you ever notice the announcements at target? I’m there now, and they just had an announcement and before it started, they had the 3 chimes I’m used to hearing at airports. Maybe this is because we subconsciously listen more closely to airport announcements than to ads on shops? Might be their way of getting past our defenses…
