Robin Harrison who is the MD of Dolly Char (UK) Ltd

November 3rd, 2011

Robin Harrison who is the MD of Dolly Char (UK) Ltd is one of a dying breed of franchisors who can still be found actively work on their own business. Robin Harrison

Robin believes that continuing to manage his own territory/business enables him to keep ahead of his competitors by allowing him to focus on trialing and testing new marketing techniques, business ideas.  Those ideas that prove to be successful he then shares throughout his franchise network.

Robin goes on to say that being hands on  he can “spot any problems a mile off and offer the remedy at a much earlier stage a really great benefit to my franchisees”.

A small sample of what his franchisees have said about him:

“The support and training I have received from Dolly Char has been second to none and nothing seems to be too much trouble.”

“That must have taken you lots of time to do last night. I am truly grateful for your continuous, unequivocal and relentless support.”

“Just like to say a big thank you for coming over and pointing me in the right direction with the computer.”

Robin also spends frequent days working with his franchisees in their territories offering them his personal help and providing them with his unequivocal and ongoing relentless support.

The Dolly Char owner says that he works tirelessly day and night for the benefit of his franchisees and will not accept second best.

He says that he is often up into the early hours working on updates for his franchisees’ websites and “tinkering with the SEO as well as advertising their businesses to bring more work their way”. He says nothing is ever  too much trouble for him.

Leaflet Law

June 21st, 2011

I was Leafleting in Waddington and Central Lincoln yesterday and whilst walking downhill on Station Road, Waddington, I thought to myself that it should be ‘law’ to have a letterbox over a certain distance from the public footpath. Some of the drives belonging to the houses were a good 50 yards long. If a Letterbox is more than; eg. 10yrds distance away from the footpath, it ought be law to have a box near the gate-post.

Agree or disagree?

Spring Cleaning

April 4th, 2011

Have you ever wondered why we chuck the pets in the garden, open all windows and completely bottom the house?

Back in the old days of coal fires and straw matresses it was standard precedure for the housewives to clean the house from top to bottom. The idea was to wait for the winter chill to dissappear and completely freshen the house up. The housewife would clean out the fireplaces and the soot in the house created by the fires, this included the floors. walls, ceilings and furniture in all rooms.

There was often a smell which built up over the winter period due to not being able to air sheets and blankets. Spring was a chance to be able to hang out the laundry after washing and feeding through a mangle. The matresses were normally emptied, washes and refilled with fresh hay.

Jews believed that bread was a forbidden food during ‘passover’ So spring was a chance to remove every last breadcrumb from the house before passover which is in April.

Persians believed in completely bottoming the house in which they called ‘khooneh takouni’. In English ’shaking the house’. A similar tradition is the Scottish “New Year’s cleaning” on Hogmanay.

An ode to Cleaning

AUNT MAG’S

It’s Friday morning,
Two minutes to nine,
A knock at the door,dollycharduster
She’s always on time.
Her hair tied up,
All dressed in rags.
A wart on her chin,
And stinking of fags.
She walks in, hanging,
Her coat and shawl.
Casting her eyes,
From wall to wall.
At 9 A.M.,
She makes a start.
Armed with Marigolds,
She cleans to an art.
Up the stairs she climbs,
And straightens the pictures.
Runs her duster over,
The furniture and fixtures.
‘Round the hall she races,
Like a witch on a broom.
Into each bedroom,
with a whizz and a zoooom!!
Next up - the bath,
Then onto the shower.
Every last smear,
Her cloth can devour.
Then is the toilet,
She pours in the bleach.
Makes sure she removes,
Any evidence she can reach.
Scrubbing the floor,
With arse in the air.
She washes and buffs,
with great pride and care.
Bathroom now spotless,
Then down to the lounge.
Cat next to the fire,
And Dog on the scrounge.
From out of her pocket,
The dog gets a treat.
On with the vacuum,
Under ‘His’ feet.
Dining room next,
To the table she comes.
Wiping away any,
Stubborn Stains and crumbs.
Onto the kitchen,
She lets out a grin.
She pulls up her gloves,
As she homes in.
A sink full of pots,
Not a problem to her.
She washes and dries them,
To the eye it’s a blur.
Under the kettle,
And then the toaster,
Cloth sweeping ‘round,
Like a roller coaster.
All rooms are clean,
She’s done her duty.
Saved me my time,
What a beauty!
She takes her wage,
A ten pound note.
Five pound coins,
And picks up her coat.
Outside she heads,
Lighting one of her fags.
First cleaner now friend,
We call her Aunt Mag’s.

The Forth Bridge or Forth Railway Bridge Business marketing

October 28th, 2010

 The Forth Bridge or Forth Railway Bridge Business marketing and associated ideas?  Talking in riddles are we? well not really rather talkingforthrailbridge more about a few thoughts I had whilst visiting the Edinburgh, Lothian and Firth of Forth region over the past few days.

 

We were looking out from South Queensferry over the Firth of Forth admiring the wonderful structure and design that is the Forth Rail Bridge and it made me think how the ups and downs of this bridge that was once described as the eighth wonder of the world reminded me of the trials and tribulations of business marketing, infact for a few seconds I thought I was looking at a graph showing me the peaks and troughs of business marketing!

 

Like the Forth Railway bridge business marketing does have its peaks and troughs or highs and lows.  Through my own personal experience to give you just one small example of where I am coming from over the years I have delivered thousands and thousands of leaflets and on occasions I have delivered a few thousand without getting much feedback what so ever (troughs) and then just as I am starting to despair and feel like forthrailbridge1throwing in the towel suddenly after a  few hundred more leaflets delivered I get a few phone calls and from those maybe four or five new clients arrive (peaks).

 

Anyway enough about business marketing and back to just admiring the eighth wonder of the world that is the forth Rail bridge or Forth Bridge as is its correct title, enjoy my photos and feel free to leave a comment.

Junk Mail and associated rubbish

October 14th, 2010

Junk Mail and associated rubbish what is all that about I ask myself?  Want and where is the criteria that deems that a perfectly well designed and professionally produced leaflet  should become categorised as Junk Mail.  I have personally designed and delivered my own circulars/leaflets for almost ten years, and on occasions I have had people pushlincoln-leaflet-distribution my flyer back out of the door, even had people come out of their homes ranting, raving and sweaing at me and even on a couple of occasions had them chase after me. 

Some people have signs that read please NO JUNK MAIL, but when does mail become Junk Mail?  All my leaflets advertise my business and the service that we offer and have provided successfully for almost ten years and we certainly do not class ourselves as junk or a junk business!

I suppose a perfectly legitimate well designed piece of marketing material, leaflet, circular, pamphlet or the like could be categorised as Junk Mail if the recipient doesn’t have a need for the service that is on offer. 

The big dilemma that the leaflet distributors have is that they can not read the recipients mind to know who will and who will not respond to their leaflet.  Now if the distributors could read a recipients mind prior to delivering them a leaflet then that would really revolutionise their lives and businesses and cure the Junk Mail dilemma once and for all.

What are your views on Junk Mail?
