Beautiful Toy Kingdom, Ugly Sales Tactics

Will do all they can to make a sale and they're making a 'killing'
Will do all they can to make a sale and they’re making a ‘killing’

This example is not like what I experienced because this video is not Toy Kingdom, however,  having seen this post on Facebook proves what sales representatives are doing nowadays to make that sale no matter what — even to the detriment of the customer — they will continue doing it and it should stop.

This is my story and it happened in Toy Kingdom.

It was Wednesday, 28th May when I ventured in SM Megamall’s Toy Kingdom in Building A or the one that is right across the Fastfood Area at the basement level.

Holding a PhP300 toy train for my eldest son, a salesman for a competing brand came up to me and blurted out, “Sir! Pangit yan.” referring to the toy I was holding. “Wala yan sir. Walang kuwenta yan.” (That toy has no value, sir. It doesn’t amount to any thing.)

Ouch!

The toy I’m holding has no value and the impression he gave me is that I don’t — in effect — value my son’s happiness because of a 300 peso toy train. What a father am I huh?

I obliged to see what wants to show me and showed this colorful toy train that is structured like a roller coaster. Nice indeed but it’s not within my budget but now how can I go back to the train I still want to give my son that he already labeled, “Walang kuwenta!” I’m almost embarrassed to move or to even pick up the box I want.

I ended up leaving the store without the toy for my kid.

Toy Kingdom Megamall is beautiful but the sales tactics of representatives who want to make a sale…boy, that’s UGLY! Change that please.

I don’t mean to single out Toy Kingdom because you can see from the video that this kind of up-selling strategy is demeaning and provocative that will not bring out the value of what they’re selling.

Super 8 to end VISA Privileges?

See the VISA logo? Now that is what I call value!

I got word yesterday, not from my suking Super 8 Shaw friends, that the new wholesale store player has done several changes with its privilege card. To name a few…

  1. Replaced partnership with UnionBank with RCBC
  2. Points redeemed can no longer be spent outside Super 8 stores
  3. You can ‘reload’ your privilege card by depositing money via RCBC bank
  4. Transition starts in July

It is sad that this privilege of being able to spend the points you earned inside the store to other stores will end. It is an edge that Super 8 has that no other stores have done. To me, it is one advantage that truly rewards loyal customers who buy their daily, weekly, monthly grocery items from the store.  The idea is radical and I believe the failure to promote this feature and engage customers to use this new card feature boils down to failure in communications, failure in marketing.

By using points earned inside the store, Super 8 will be losing its edge over SM Advantage Card (SMAC) whose dominance hinges on a variety of partners who can give SMAC holders more reasons to get points and use their points in SM stores.

SMAC is a very good privilege card, there’s not just a worthy competitor who can give customers an alternative card who can truly win – not just their hearts – but their pockets as well. I’m all for giving customers more value. So why end it?
