Pics are of my email and invoice sent for wasting our time. Time is valuable! This "rant" below is more towards business owners
.
.
Anyone else is probably just going to find this a waste of time to read! However, if you are a business owner it's worth the read if you're thinking about doing any business with @yellowpages_ca (YP)
.
.
Approx. Nov 2013 - I renewed our #yellowpages listings for our 4 Optometry clinics. I don't like the value of YP, however I thought with our large senior base we should pay to keep our name in their books
.
.
Feb 2014 - I noticed there were mistakes on about 11 out of 15 listings we had. And not minor mistakes...major ones like the wrong phone number!!
.
.
Feb 2014 - I call YP. Either no answer or they tell me they can't change or cancel our listings until 3mths prior to renewal (approx Oct 2014). I call bullshit on this, but they insist their "system" doesn't allow them to cancel prior to 3mths before
.
.
Oct 2014 - Since I'm OCD about being organized I put a calendar reminder in to call them in October. I start calling. Each time I get ahold of someone they say they can't change anything, it needs to be our sales rep, however they are unavailable and will call me back. They never do
.
.
Nov & Dec 2014 - I continue to call YP and still no-one will cancel our listing since they aren't our "Sales Rep."
.
.
Jan 2015 - we start getting billed for the next year. I call them. Finally our sales rep answers and says its too late since they have printed the paper books already. I tell them not a fucking chance we will be paying
.
.
2015 - month after month they send bills. Month after month we call to cancel. I finally do up a complaint. Get some upper-managment guy who says they have a recording of us renewing for 2015. I tell him to play it for me. It's them completely scamming one of our staff into simply agreeing that we don't want to miss the upcoming print deadline. Not making sure the staff has authority to authorize renewal. Not clarifying the fees, etc.
.
.
~May 2015 I file a report to the BBB. A few months later YP finally credits us the money they had been scamming us on

Hello sweet honey darlin’s! 🍯 I just wanted to put it out into the universe that I’ve got limited spots open for branding/ logos and custom graphic design for the remainder of 2018. If you’re humming and hah-ing over a brand refresh this winter, I’d love to chat with you about the possibility of bringing your new year in with a fresh look and strategy 👀

We met up this morning with the inspiring Robyn Hobbs, NSW Small Business Commissioner. We shared with her our latest initiative which is aimed at small business owners who don’t know why, how and where to start with digital marketing. She gave us tips and advice on how to best promote it within the small business industry. We are pumped! Our platform will be launching very very soon so stay tuned! •

Do you skip the stretch?!?! Post workout, or even just after a long day?

#dontdoit !!! (Skip)
The “cool down stretch” is WAY too important to skip. Whether you work out or not, stretching tight muscles can reduce future injury and pain.
He’s a short one (sped up) from today’s workout.
Starting from a child’s pose, stretch your arms long out in front. Sit back on your heels.
Next, step one foot out in a runner’s lunge making sure your knee does not go further than your toe. Then shift weight back for a nice hamstring stretch. Repeat other side.
Stand up, clasp hands behind you, look up towards the ceiling followed by a big, cleansing breath.

Avoid the rejection!�
Although it looks rather simple, the ads you’d like to run on Facebook may still get rejected. The reason can range from too much text to bad targeting. We can make sure this doesn’t happen to you! #howmoccaworks

#Howto Attract Your Ideal Customer

When working with established #smallbusinesses the best way to generally identify their ideal customer is to separate the customers that are currently most profitable that also refer others.

From here you must start to research and anaylze the common characteristics found in those customers.

By understanding who and what makes an ideal customer for your business, you can start building it to attract and serve this customer segment.
