Business Cards For Home Service Providers:

How My Leaking Washing Machine Created A Business Opportunity

I arrived home last Friday night looking forward to the weekend after a particularly hard and stressful week. I walked into the kitchen to find water all over the floor, once over the initial shock, my first thought was we must have a burst pipe however upon further investigation the problem was the washing machine. It had stopped working and for some strange reason decided to deposit all the water over my newly tiled floor. I looked at the flashing fault code on the machine, referred to my manual and this suggested a faulty pump. I soon realised the repair was beyond my capability and decided to contact the repair man who last called out to us a few years ago. 

The difficulty we then faced was neither me nor my wife could remember the name of the company we had previously used. We spent the next 30 minutes looking on the internet and trying to jog each others memories but to no avail.

In the end we just rang another company who we found on the internet. They came out on Saturday, replaced a seal in the pump and left my washing machine fully operational, all in all a good job at a very reasonable rate.

Business Cards: How They Generate Repeat Business

In my view it is essential that all businesses ensure customers come back time after time.

At this point I realised how my business Betterprint could help this situation, Betterprint produce high quality Business Cards on thick 400gsm board and also in a Label format. Had the original repair company either given me a Business Card, or placed a contact Label in a discrete but easily visible place on the appliance, then we would have his company name and number.

Repeat business comes from building up trust and offering reliability over a period of time. I am not trying to say buying products from my business will change this, but it can help to ensure when an emergency like the one that happened to me occurs, your business name and contact details are readily available, which should help with your retention and repeat business.
