An FYI for companies using Living Social or Groupon
If you cannot handle the influx of people requesting your services after the coupons are bought, then don’t use Living Social or Groupon. The amount of bad customer service I have seen with companies using either of these coupon services is nothing short of amazing.
It’s really simple, these are great way for you to get more exposure for your business and get new customers. So you should be 100% prepared for the influx of people going to use your service. Don’t cancel shit at the last minute, don’t ignore emails and voicemails, don’t say you can’t schedule things. Be prepared and don’t screw up, otherwise the negative experiences will outweigh any kind of financial benefits you receive.
So part of my new years resolution is to begin chronicling my life again. There is a lot going on for me in 2011, the biggest being my wedding in the Fall. So to really chronicle all of this change, I’m going to start taking pictures with my D40 even more, (maybe Santa can bring me a D700 :)) But to really be productive with my pictures, I need good lenses and that’s where lenshero.com comes into play.
They are currently running a contest where you can win some great lenses for your DSLR and honestly, I’d love some new lenses. So lenshero.com, here is my blog post saying why I should win and why your site is awesome.
If I win, I will be able to really chronicle one of the biggest changes in my life, getting married to the girl I love and that is exactly why your site is awesome. Yes, the ability to pick lenses for your camera is nice, but it’s what comes out of that lens and camera is what makes your site important. So hopefully that’s a good enough answer, but if not, I’m still going to be happy and have a great 2011.
