Most people don’t care where they buy their every day goods from. Food, essentials and toiletries are often mundane purchases, with little interaction or uniqueness.

A lot of people say price is the sole deciding factor for why we buy things these days.

Ballymena Today love the wisdom of Seth Godin and, he had some brief but valuable thoughts on worth on his blog recently. He said this…

A Challenge for you
What kind of picture are you painting for your customers?
If people aren’t buying your product, how can you get us to believe in you and your service or product again? How can you get us to love what your business does?
How can you get your town to care again?
If you still care about your business or product, if you still have some courage left, paint a new picture.
Let us help you.
