The Christmas Clock is Ticking

Holidays are crazy. You're running around buying last minute gifts, scurrying through grocery store shelves and frantically cleaning your house for your holiday guests...well at least that is what's going on at my house this year. You end up getting those last minute gift recipients clearance Christmas ornaments or over-priced bath towels in desperation.

But some retailers do make it easy on you during this crazy time of year. Some offer gift pickup services, personal shoppers, and some like NB Web Express offer free express shipping with guaranteed delivery by Christmas. But that is only if you can place your order in time...

If you're one of those late last minute shoppers this year, e-gift certificates are the way to go.
NB Web Express e-gift certificates are always the "Perfect Fit." Your loved ones can choose their own shoes or apparel, not to mention their correct size! They are a lifesaver for last minute shoppers. Forget the craziness this time of year; relax and send e-gift certificates to those last minute gift recipients. I'm sure they will appreciate getting the "Perfect Fit" under the tree this year, not last year's Christmas ornaments.

Customer Care - Not Pushy Salespeople

Some years back, I can remember working in a highly competitive shoe store. I sold shoes, fitted feet, arranged displays, stocked shelves, rang up orders, unloaded boxes, etc. My manager encouraged me to push certain products; no matter if the customer needed them or not. Everyone was given a sales pitch when they walked in the store.

My previous manager used to hold in-store sales contests; now those were the worst and they were very cutthroat. I can remember a specific contest; the Insole Contest. Each customer no matter their age, size, or type of shoe they needed, I had to put them in an insole. My manager wanted our store to outsell all the others in this category. So I did my job, I tried one on every customer; some bought, most of them did not. And along with insoles, I was trained to oversell customers everything from embroidered socks to over-priced canvas shoes.

But when I started at NB Web Express, a whole new world of real Customer Care was introduced to me. I worked with a group of extremely knowledgeable people who genuinely wanted to give the customer the best fit and the best shoe possible for their needs; no matter if they made the sale or not. People of all ages and ailments call everyday. Each person is given the same high class treatment, not a set of insoles they don’t need.

But it’s just selling shoes…right? Wrong. Customer Care at NB Web Express is more than just selling a pair of shoes; it’s about never losing touch of what is really important. Knowledgeable staff, a friendly voice on the other end…how about someone who genuinely cares about you, not about making the sale? Non-pushy salespeople. Period. Now that is a company I want to do business with.
