It's Only On Sale If You Need It!

One day when I was walking home from school, I walked past a local store that was having a sale. I told my mother about the sale, and she told me that “it’s only a sale if you need the stuff.”

In this day of age, everything seems to be a sale. The only way companies can sell any products is if they’re on sale. As consumers, we must be careful.

Stores use all kinds of phrases to describe sales these days: there's "everything must go", "buy one get one free", "buy one get one 50% off", "blowout sales", "clearance sales", "overstocks". The list goes on and on, but they all are conducted for the same purpose.

Think about what these words mean and how they affect your brand when used too frequently over time. Why have we become so "discount driven" as a culture? Maybe because it's in absence of value? Maybe we're buying too much these days? Or perhaps, we're not buying enough, and now suddenly since it's so easy to buy we're actually buying less.

You have to wonder what the real price is to begin with for all of the products we purchase. A lot of stores are upping prices just to knock them down to a “discount”, which often-times is just the original product cost. Stores need to come up with better excuses to win my attention in 2020.

I would love to see more companies use the phrase increase value, not lower price. What else can they provide customers with? What kind of value will they receive by making this purchase?

I’m dying to walk into a store that has a sign saying new and improved increased service. And not just say it, but mean it. I want them to promise to really take care of you when you enter the store. Consumers have to start deciding whether they want to speak with robots when they have problems or real human beings. Customers may have to give a little extra money to keep customer service people staffed, but I think it’s worthwhile to preserve what’s left of customer service.

Instead of constantly focusing on the price point, companies should really start advertising that they’ve increased the quality of their product. Send me a notice that the prices may remain the same, but that you will start stepping up your customer service and product quality. THAT will excite me.

  • Being the winner of a multi-million dollar lottery certainly will be a life-changing event for almost every single lottery winner. My name is Mavis Wanczyk from Chicopee, Massachusetts, the famous PowerBall lottery winner of $758 million (£591m). I know many people would wonder how I had won the lottery. Would you believe me if I told you that I did it with spell casting? I met this famous spell caster known as Doctor Odunga and he was the one who did it for me. As shocking as it was to me, my famous comment to the press was “ I’m going to go and hide in my bed.” Never did I believe that Doctor Odunga made me wealthy overnight. If you want to have your chance of winning and becoming very wealthy just like me, contact Doctor Odunga at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR WHATS-APP HIM at +2348167159012 and you will be lucky. Thanks for reading and hope to see you at the top

  • Do not invest in any trading platform, there is nothing such as get rich quick, it doesn’t always end well. I was also a victim to this kind of scam. An Asian girl introduced me to ibitminers and i got really deep into their shit and all i can say is these scammers are good at what they do. I was allowed to withdraw a little amount which i believed was to build my trust but they sucked me dried and i never got my capital after all was said and done. I lost a ton of asset and when i reported to local authorities i was told since crypto is untraceable, there is nothing they can do about it. I couldn’t get any help from them until i contracted the service of a professional ethical hacker. He hacked into the eth wallet address i made payment to and retrieved my stolen crypto and he showed me the transaction history of these scammers, I was in shock. If you also wish to check your partner Whatsapp conversation to know if he/she is cheating then Osecybersailing is the best team for you.

  • The need for more legitimate hacking companies are rising each passing day because of the magnitude of scams being run on the Internet. I know what I went through before I was able to contact Osecybersailing to work on my case after getting scammed multiple times and trying to retrieve back my lost investment funds. After I have invested $670k usd with a fraudulent crypto investment company and i lost everything in the space of one month and got scammed again and again trying to find a solution which wasn’t easy to come by given the circumstances that brought about the incident, getting scammed multiple times is never a good experience for anyone involved which was what exactly happened to me when I got scammed investing into crypto currency. Many posing on the Internet as hacking companies aren’t really what they are because most of them are scammers waiting for a prey to devour, I got referred to reach out to Osecybersailing through a friend and after I investigated about their legitimacy I came across many of their testimony from their satisfied clients that got their lost investment funds retrieved working with this legitimate and evergreen hacking institute which also changed my story helping me retrieve back my lost investment funds. Many of the testimony really were saying great and worthy things about how the company saved them from financial loss, I decided to hire them after many consideration and they didn’t disappoint me by making the choice of choosing them after what I have experienced lately trying to get my funds back from the scammers. They proved they can be trusted with the recovery of lost investment funds which is why I wrote this down for other victims of scam who wishes to ever retrieve back their lost investment funds to let Osecybersailing solve their case, they’re worthy and has what it takes to restore back your funds and peace of mind. If you also wish to check your partner Whatsapp conversation to know if he/she is cheating then Osecybersailing is the best team for you.
