This story takes place about 5 or 6 years ago.
I had a regular client named Larry.
He was a great client that ordered 3 or more times per week.
Larry was the ultimate bachelor.
Often during the week Larry would order multiple errands and deliveries at once. Sometimes he would even order a couple days of deliveries to be completed during the week with varying drop off times and locations. They might include shopping and dinner pick up or dropping off a payment and picking up mail.
I can remember the week of the scam so well. Larry needed new pillows. He found some he thought he would like at Big Lots. He also needed groceries and cleaning supplies.
The biggest part of his order was a satellite that would help him get cable tv reception. He was going to have a friend install it on his RV. It was at the RV store that is located near the Concord Motor Speedway. I can not remember exactly how much everything cost but it was a pretty penny. At that time, I did not have any caps on the amount of money I paid for client items. Especially great returning clients like Larry. I paid for most of the stuff in advance except for the satellite which he paid for when he ordered it.
As a small business…. really as a micro business, it is difficult to make tons of offers. What I mean by offers is a variety of different services and combination of services. It’s hard because you have to have all types of different systems in place to record the service, take payment for the service and make sure it fits in with all the other services offered. Many of the experts say to make new offers all the time and see what sticks. Then if you get to something that sticks you can roll with it for as long as it is helpful to your clients. I must admit that the process of thinking up new offers is so fun to me. It’s the hoping clients like it and give it a try. But what I have realized is my real issue with the offers I create is that I rarely tell enough people about them. I am not even really sure people know all the ways that Rollin can help. Crazy, right! It’s so easy to get caught up working in the business that lots of things slide by. I am going to use this opportunity to talk about some of our offers. I hope you see something in here that can serve you.
