Blinds for the home

September 30, 2009

Furnishing a new home can be an expensive business; all the ‘little things’ quickly add up and budgets never go quite as far as planned. Sooner or later you’ll have to think about what type of window blinds you want, and more importantly; what you can afford. You know that if you invest in quality blinds you’ll have something for life. Yet, with the early morning sun streaming in through the bare bedroom window (and the last of your money gone on sandpaper and paint), the overwhelming temptation is to rush out and buy some cheap blinds. Luckily technological and manufacturing advances mean that cheap no longer means nasty and today there’s a great range of budget blinds that won’t break the bank. Just because you don’t have money to throw around doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on style. Most designs and colors are available at very competitive prices as long as you know where to look. The Internet is If you buy cheap blinds you can expect quality to be compromised in a variety of ways. Most will be made from untreated fabrics, which may loose color or yellow with prolonged exposure to sunlight. It’s unlikely that any materials used will be damp or mildew resistant and shouldn’t be used in kitchens or bathrooms. You’ll also find that cheap fixings don’t perform well, headrails may bend due to inferior materials been used. In extreme cases you may end up with a wonky window covering that rises on one side and not on the other. Cheap window blinds should be avoided at all costs in wet areas such as bathrooms. Buying cheap blinds is a false economy, as sooner rather than later you are going to have to replace them, rememeber buy cheap buy twice.

Live Chat

September 19, 2009

In todays age of internet and digital communications, customers want answers fast, many customer no longer wish to email thier querys, many want an instant answer. So how do you as a online merchant respond to this?

One way Lancashire Rose Blinds interact with our customers is by using a live chat feature on our site. This allows our customers to ask a range of questions from queries reagarding measuring windows to general fabric queries. We then can answer these queries in real time, which helps build customer realtionships and also aids the customer in making a “buying” decision.

Lancashire Rose blinds, understand the need for customers to gain the information, quickly and that is why we belive that live chat can only be an asset to any online business. It can help improve customer relations, help customers decide to buy from you and more importanly show the customers that you, the retailer, have the knowledge and expertise to assisst them at all times.

Customer service is a vital part of any business and should be seen as a valueable marketing tool and not a hinderance.

So how do you interact with your customers and do you think live chat on a website is a gimmick or sales tool?
