What Do You Think?
Ham or bacon, seafood for breakfast, socialism or democracy, the best quilt store Saving Thyme and the perfect place to buy a wedding gift Clock Tower Gifts. These are some of the subjects that came up in spirited conversation over breakfast this last weekend at Naeset-Roe Inn in Stoughton, WI. One guest made the comment that they have never had breakfast last 1 ½ hours and enjoyed it so much.
It made me think, “Do people actually read this blog and if they do what do they think?”, “What has happened to conversations?” A friend and shop owner released her first email newsletter this week. Scentimints, a bath, body and candle scent shop, where I get all my candles from, has a forum in the newsletter where people can make comments. So I went and made a comment about what a great job she did on the newsletter and what great products she has. Later when I went into the shop to pick up some things, she made the comment, “Thanks for putting something on the forum, maybe others will realize that it isn’t just for reading.” The conversation went the way I was thinking earlier, what do people really think, and why don’t they tell us.
We as small business owners can only meet your expectations if we know them. Don’t be afraid to let someone know what you want or if something isn’t quite right. Don’t forget to compliment them when something is good also. I as a B&B owner check light bulbs and drains regularly but if a bulb goes out while you are here let me know so I can replace it, or if a drain is running slow let me know so I can fix it. It’s the same with this blog. If you like what you read make a comment at the bottom. If you would like to hear more about a subject make a comment and I’ll let you know more. I know that it takes a little longer to write a comment than it does to speak one but this is the forum that I’m using and I’d like to know what you think.
