Online Customer Care is Instrumental in Reducing Product Returns

Remember the gleam in their eyes when the customer walked out of the store with your product in hand. You saw their desire to rush home, tear open the packaging, and use the product! What may seem like a job well done becomes a bitter pill to swallow when the same individual reappears to make a product return. Gone is the excitement! There is now a disgruntled look on their face and the angry customer is now demanding a full refund! You can appease him with a 100% refund but the hassle has just begun! You will also endure the repackaging, restocking and reselling costs and by the end of the day, all product returns will affect your bottom line!

Here are two steps your business can take to reduce product returns:

1. Implement online customer care

‘Prevention is better than cure’ is more than a popular idiom. It aptly applies to online customer service. This online CRM application connects visitors to a customer service representative through live chat. Online customer care is instrumental in reducing product returns by proffering support while the customer is shopping. CSRs analyze online metrics such as excessive keywords and webpage duration to understand if a customer is in need of assistance. Online customer service gives customers an opportunity to discuss product technicalities, shipping and return policies. This one-on-one conversation eliminates all quandaries so the wrong purchase decision isn’t made!

2. Limit the window for returns

While, 30 days is the standard window for return, some retailers are implementing a strict policy of 7-10 days to return a product. Make the return policy visible on your website and on receipts to minimize customer confusion. Richard Ignatz (President of Boutique Emmanuel) explains, “As a small boutique that carries a limited number of garments in each size, when a customer brought back an item back 30 or 60 days later, the season was over and I would have to put it on the 50- to 75-percent-off rack. We missed a chance to sell it to someone else two or three times in that period.”

The Westminster Assembly & Instrumental Music In Public Worship

Instrumental Music in Public Worship: History Surrounding the Westminster Assembly

FROM: “INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC IN THE PUBLIC WORSHIP OF THE CHURCH”

By John L. Girardeau (Still Waters Revival Books, [1888] 2000), pp. 132, 133.

Before the Westminster Assembly of Divines undertook the office of preparing a Directory of Worship, the Parliament had authoritatively adopted measures looking to the removal of organs, along with other remains of Popery, from the churches of England. On the 20th of May, 1644, the commissioners from Scotland wrote to the General Assembly of their church and made the following statement among others: “We cannot but admire the good hand of God in the great things done here already, particularly that the covenant, the foundation of the whole work, is taken, Prelacy and the whole train thereof extirpated, the service-book in many places forsaken, plain and powerful preaching set up, many colleges in Cambridge provided with such ministers as are most zealous of the best reformation, altars removed, the communion in some places given at the table with sitting, THE GREAT ORGANS AT PAUL’S AND PETER’S IN WESTMINSTER TAKEN DOWN (emphasis added), images and many other monuments of idolatry defaced and abolished, the Chapel Royal at Whitehall purged and reformed; and all by authority, in a quiet manner, at noon-day, without tumult.”1 So thorough was the work of removing organs that the “Encyclopaedia Britannica” says that “at the Revolution most of the organs in England had been destroyed.”2

When, therefore, the Assembly addressed itself to the task of framing a Directory for Worship, it found itself confronted by a condition of the churches of Great Britain in which the singing of psalms without instrumental accompaniment almost universally prevailed. In prescribing, consequently, the singing of psalms without making any allusion to the restoration of instrumental music, it must, in all fairness, be construed to specify the simple singing of praise as a part of public worship. The question, moreover, is settled by the consideration that had any debate occurred as to the propriety of allowing the use of instrumental music, the Scottish commissioners would have vehemently and uncompromisingly opposed that measure. But Lightfoot, who was a member of the Assembly, in his “Journal of its Proceedings”3 tells us: “This morning we fell upon the Directory for singing of psalms; and, in a short time, we finished it.” He says that the only point upon which the Scottish commissioners had some discussion was the reading of the Psalms line by line.

How to use Laparoscopic Surgical Instruments Safely

Putting the Trocar in its correct spot is one of the most important procedures of laparoscopic surgery for your medical instrument. Many serious problems have been reported as a result of incorrect placement of laparoscopic instruments. You should be 100% positive that you are place the trocar in its correct spot.

Their is so many different types of trocars on the marketplace, some of the most easiest to use are the trocars with the safety mechanisms with robust blades. Basic handling is pretty much the same for all trocars, it is important to understand the different functions of the different types.

Approaching laparoscopy, pay attention to the area through a laparoscope inserted through another trocar while pressing the area to confirm that the space can be safely entered. Make sure the patient is free from abdominal wall vessels, darkened the room and view the area under transmitted light. Place the trocar right next to the abdominal wall. Stretch your finger along the length of the trocar while using your other hand to provide support and prevent accidentally going in to deep. Work the trocar turning and twisting it, Try to do this by maintaining even and force when the tip of the trocar passes through the wall. Do not press to hard with your surgery equipment. Hard pressure may shrink the internal space, increasing the risk of hitting an organ and causing damage. When the tip of the trocar is inside the space try and swing it into a direction of open space and push further to avoid unnecessary injury. Locking the safety mechanism will help reduce risk. Some trocars do not have a lock mechanism on the safety. Make sure your really careful when inserting this device. Ideally you may want to use what’s called a malacar trocar. It has a self-securing lock you can use during the procedure.

Instrumental Beats A New Production Style

When you listen to commercial radio today, instrumental beats are likely to be the sound coming out of the speakers. For a while, urban music has been at a stand-still as far as production goes. Just recently, trap music has emerged as a mainstream genre. While it’s roots date back to the early 2000s, the genre is just now making it’s mark in the music industry.

Trap beats symbolize the struggle, the pain, and the victory in life in general. Producers all over are tapping into this new way of producing. These instrumentals have an authoritative presence and beg for attention. Dope trap beats are now being used in conjunction with traditional sounds in major R&B productions. With the new sound being so sought-after, the market has completely opened up for aspiring producers. There is now a demand that was almost non-existent before. So while economists claim that we are in a bad economy, these producers are cashing out with no problems.

Artists to the likes of 2Chainz, Young Scooter, and Trinidad James are only part of the clientele listing for these producers. Moreover, the artists who aspire to be like these major artists are a huge addition to that list. Old-head producers are now playing catch-up with the new wave of sounds coming in. You have new producers coming out faster than others who have been trying to make it for over 5 years, simply because they are making dope trap beats.

The competition in production is much stiffer than it has ever been since the emergence of this new sound. Everyone figures that he can make a lot of money by producing it. It is possible; they just have to do it the right way. Creating sounds that captures souls more fiercely is where trap music is heading. You have to be able to make heads bounce; make people mad, the whole nine. I do not see these types of beats going anywhere any time soon.

Taking in consideration that this genre is so closely related to Hip-Hop, some of thrown the style off as just another version of Hip-Hop. In reality, if you ask a Hip-Hop mogul what it is, he would get mad that you even made a comparison. Authentic Hip-Hop is a far-cry from trap music. It is not only a spin off of it, but a spin with a twist. Trap music is made more for the clubs and partying. Anytime a genre of music comes out that can make people dance and have fun, it is here to stay. Producers are in for a good treat with trap music being so fairly new to the general public. Dope trap instrumentals will run the radio for the next several years.
