I don’t think I’ve ever worked so hard to buy a TV in my life!
Let’s just say after 48 hours, I felt like I worked a full time job just trying to purchase a new TV.
Here’s how it went down…
I decided that even though I’m not a ‘TV guy’ that I would like something larger than my 32 inch TV whenever I do decide to watch a movie or something.
So I start to peruse Walmart’s website and find a TV that I think would be great, but still within a nice price range. Since I’m not that big on TV I’m thinking about $700 or so should do it.
Well after being wowed with all the 4k Ultra this and that, I decided to take the plunge. Fork over my credit card, buy the warranty (or my wife will yell at me even though you never really use it), and I’m ready to pick the TV up a little bit later from the store THAT DAY.
Or so I thought. (dun, dun, dun!!!)
So after waiting in the store for almost 2 hours (Walmart gives me hives and makes me itch), I still didn’t walk out with one single pixel that I paid for.
But Walmart put a hold on my bank account. What the heck? (yeah, that confused and frustrated look you have right now? Imagine me with that times 10!)
So after getting on with the chat department, the store manager, and maybe even Sam Walton himself, I found out that there was a ‘freeze’ on my purchase.
But I had to do all the digging or else Walmart would still have my $700 smackers today some 1 month later.
Admittedly frustrated, I had the order refunded and then proceeded to purchase from a rival competitor Best Buy whose prices are just about higher all the time.
But at this point, I didn’t care.
The hoops that Walmart made me jump through just to get a television I purchased was absolutely insane.
But here’s where I want to turn this story.
With the AMAZING amount of frustration and anger I had to endure in that AWFUL process that Walmart took me through, validating everything I think about them, if you were a local business selling TV’s that weekend - I would have sought you out and BOUGHT FROM YOU.
And if you showed any decent level of actual customer service? (cough...I’m looking at you Walmart) I would have most likely considered shopping with you in the future.
But I wonder how many other people like me go through similar instances in your category of business, but don’t even know you exist?
And thus, go to another big name brand when you could have snagged a loyal customer again and again?
And there’s a reason why it continues to happen.
Because we don’t know how to find you! And that’s most likely because you don’t have the time to focus on marketing your local business correctly.
Let’s rectify that shall we?
I’m not saying that together you and I are going to make Walmart bankrupt. Not by a long shot.
But what I am saying is that when you have us in your corner, we won’t just be a stone and slingshot in the hands of your local business going against a Goliath like Walmart.
We’re going to do much better than that. We’re going to be a rock quarry set on automatic rapid fire to help you get the best results possible and become the known go-to local business in whatever category you care to dominate.
Go ahead and put us in your hands and hurl us at this whole online thing.
You’ll find that just like David, we’ll help you emerge victorious and change your life forever.
But if you don’t believe us, then think about this…
