How often do you go to spend money with a company and the person behind the counter or on the other end of the phone are “doing you a favor” by assisting you? They half-heartedly greet you, if at all, or even ignore you until they are ready to interact with you. The sad thing I am finding is that our younger generation does not understand the personal interaction needed to serve customers well. Could this be a result of the internet, a lack of direction from parents who are too busy with their own lives, or is or is the “who cares” attitude coming from boredom? Today people feel they should be constantly entertained rather than lavishing others with attention and great service.
I can't tell you how many times I go though the self-serve checkout at the grocery store and walk by the person “supervising” my transaction, and receive no acknowledgement or gratitude for my business. I might be old-fashioned but I expect a, “Thank you.” or “Have a nice day” especially after a transaction I completed on my own.
There is one place that has always impressed me. Have you ever dined or driven thru at Chick-Fil-A? Every single time, no matter what location, I am always greeted with a friendly helpful voice from a person who then thanks me for the order I placed even before the transaction is complete. This type of friendly service is what I expect to receive and give to my customers; it is a two way street.
I walked into a fairly busy Subway, with a few customers ahead of me in line and did a double take. The young man helping people with the start to their sandwich had an ear bud in his ear with a visible dangling white cord. He was half-heartedly interacting with customers, using a disinterested tone of voice and making none or very little eye contact. The interesting thing is I know the manager and owner of this particular location. This employee made a sandwich for the person two people ahead of me in line and then the person directly in front of me gave his order and the young man. The employee said back to the customer, “I’m sorry. I wasn't paying attention. Can you repeat that!” He wasn’t paying attention? Why not? He’s getting paid to assist customers!
If that wasn't shocking enough, I called that Subway to speak with the manager the very next morning since I was so taken back by this scenario. The response the manager gave me was even more horrifying. He said, “I wasn't working yesterday. It was my day off. There’s not much I can do about that.” ‘Wait, aren't you the manager?’ I was thinking? Completely stunned at this point I explained that I’d just wanted to share the information in case the managers were interested. Even though I pass that Subway once or more everyday, I have not gone back and do not plan to do so. The golden rule is so important; treat others the way you want to be treated and appreciate the people who give you the opportunity to earn money.
What kind of service and appreciation do you show your customers? Are you available for them? None of us is perfect, but make sure to apologize if someone happens to catch you in a less-than-desirable behavior. The words “I'm sorry” go a long way. Show your customers how much you appreciate their business and loyalty by “being there” for those who spend their hard earned money at your establishment.
When you think of people who save your day, what comes to mind? Do you think of a family member, friend, neighbor, or religious leader? All of those are good choices but a superhero you might not put in your top 5 is your local office supplier. Yes, I just said office supplier.
Here is a scenario for you. Have you ever gone to the supply cabinet to get what you think is your last box of envelopes. What about your last ream of paper or even roll of bathroom tissue and then have that sinking feeling that sets in when you find an empty box or no box at all. NOW WHAT? You have a deadline to hit, the phone is ringing off the hook, you need to leave work early for a family event or business meeting, and lunch is not even penciled in your work day until maybe tomorrow if your lucky. The last thing you have time to do is solve one more problem or get in the car to go get that item you need.
You wish clicking your heels together 3 times like Dorothy did in the Wizard of OZ, would make the missing item appear. The stress free solution is just 10 numbers away 314-227-6771.

Check out these 3 true stories and then consider if calling 314-227-6771 and getting an industry educated live person without going through voicemail prompts is real or just a fantasy.
The truth is the reason they have not been delivered is that all the items had never been ordered. NO BIG DEAL! The customer called and said. “Help! Is there anything you can do to get me motivational signs 10 minutes ago?” We went online with the customer, picked out the signs, and walked in the door with the signs and a smile about an hour later. Was this person's day saved? I am pretty sure the answer was “FOR SURE!”
These are just a few ways your local office supplier can be a super hero in your day.

Consider the last time you drove to get office supplies. Did it bring you any new revenues or help you build your business? Stop for a second and think of the cost to your bottom line when you spend your time doing anything that takes you away from what you do best and the activities most supportive to meeting your goals for your business.
What most people experience by neglecting to get adequate support purchasing their office supplies is a lack of productivity, a waste of gas and lost hours that could have been better spent developing their business, building client relations and running their staff. And while it’s possible you may have needed a break from work, wouldn’t it be a better use of your time to jump on Linked in and make a few new connections, spend time developing your staff or deepening the relationships with your customers?
Do you remember times you felt frustration walking up and down the aisle of a supply store, wasting precious time trying to locate items and people who will give the personalized support you want and need, only to find you are in line behind the next guy. Need I go on?
Most business owners and executives suffer ineffective time management. Too often, they do not delegate tasks to others that represent an inappropriate use of their time. You have unique strengths in your work; similarly helping you with your office supplies is my strength. It’s my passion and pleasure to fulfill this; my JOB to support you and cater to you. I love it when I save my customers time, money, and stress by providing all the printer cartridge and office supply items at the best price, delivered right to their door.

Kathleen, a client of mine recently said to me “It’s so easy working with your company! I order items and they just show up. When I need your help, I can always count on your excellent service.”
Do you like to be catered to? Does it make sense to delegate the job of office supplies, including pricing, selection and delivery to your business, off your plate so you can focus on more important tasks? Better use of your time?
