Whether it’s an individual or a company, a first impression is hard to shake. As a professional with 10 years of experience dedicated to reviewing hotels, restaurants, and bars plus 3 years dedicated to product reviews, I feel confident in saying I’m an expert in my field.
Tonight we welcomed a company into our home, and I broke an important rule: following my instinct. Because we are brought up to be respectful and courteous, I allowed a company into our home even though they did not show us the same respect in return. An appointment was scheduled for 5pm and after receiving an additional call stating it might be a 30 minute delay, I still welcomed that company through our door at exactly 1 hour past the dedicated time.
A First Impression – Companies are you Listening?
The entire company “spiel” was meant to last 1 hour so at that moment, I should have really turned the company away because the appointment had concluded. As a first impression, a company not respecting your time should be a deal breaker. If they want your business, they will show you by being prompt, courteous, and respectful.
That “spiel” I mentioned before lasted 2 hours, not 1, making for a grand total of 3 hours lost. Talk about rude. When the company rep first arrived I expressed that we had not eaten dinner yet, and without being ill-mannered (yes, I still chose to use my manners) I expressed that we needed to make this short and sweet.
The rep proceeded to take 2 hours of our time by doing an elaborate presentation, clearly NOT what we had asked for. Although the information was educational (in many ways to say the least), it’s not what we (the customer) asked for. A company who wants your money will listen to what YOU need, not what THEY want. That’s called customer service….somehow many companies seem to have lost that concept.
With more than 60 years as the dirt authority, the cleaning experts at Stanley Steemer are certified to remove more than 98 percent of dry soil from floors – a rate significantly higher than self-cleaning methods. In fact, in fall of 2011, Stanley Steemer technicians removed more than 56 tons of dirt from American Homes!
I recently took Stanley Steemer up on their offer to be my holiday helper. A day off from cleaning? Yes please!! I was pleasantly surprised to see that Stanley Steemer not only offers carpet cleaning service, but tile and grout, hardwood, air duct, and even furniture cleaning options!
When we moved into our home a little more than 8 years ago we ripped up all the flooring, with the exception of the tile in the foyer, kitchen, and bathrooms. Although I am a bit obsessive about keeping my floors clean, I’ve never been satisfied with the tile, until now!
For the last 25 years I have visited the same dentist every six months for my semi-annual cleaning. Luckily most of those years were covered by insurance and therefore the out-of-pocket expense for me was not very costly. Unfortunately not all families can afford dental insurance or visiting the dentist “as recommended” to keep up with their oral care health.
Because I have a great understanding of the importance of preventative care and giving back is important to me, I jumped at the chance to team up with Colgate Total to create an oral care basket for someone in my community. I recently visited my local Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market to load up on Colgate Total products to help other families with their gum disease prevention.
