Food Delivery Services

I must say I am pretty impressed with the better services provided by foodpanda. The app and delivery service used to be 3 stars and have recently improved and personally, i feel their service is as good, if not better than grab delivery service.

Grab and foodpanda are two companies who have been benefitting and enjoying growth and expansion, since the pandemic.

Food Vendors

Many food vendors and shop had no choice, but to move to online platforms, in order to bring the income in and ensure that their food are sold if not sold out. Now, food delivery platforms like grab, foodpanda and deliveroo have managed to grasps this opportunity.

Food Delivery Staff

In fact, these delivery suppliers have grew the working population. People of all ages, races and gender can simply sign up to be their delivery staff.

Though hard work and lots of physical movements required, many have jumped onto this bandwagons that provide good employment for many , regardless of the pandemic situation. The hard earned money is decent, and if one is hardworking, can earn up to S$3K to S$4K per month.

Cost to Consumer for Convenience Offered

And though these online delivery services company offer the best alternative for remote ordering and clearing of food for food vendors, who if not, would have to suffer a much more wounded income, the companies charge the vendors and consumers a fee, in order to provide this convenient service.

I mean sometimes, if I cater in my transport fee, it is quite worth the while to pay some difference to benefit the convenience and hassle free service. And moreover, I get to have more time to do other stuff.

Fees & Convenience

In fact, some vendors hike up their unit prices in order to cover the fees, passing on the charges to the paying consumers.

Consumers being able to enjoy the convenience of not travelling to purchase food and receiving their orders piping hot, while they enjoy the comfort of their home or office, bears the costs,

Hence, sometimes it is quite interesting to check on different food delivery service company and see the differences in prices for the same food ordered.

Good Enhanced Service

Oh ya, this post was triggered by the good service that food panda has given. I ordered three packets of laksa and rojak, few days ago and experienced delayed order. It was about 3.45 pm and I was ok with the delay as I ordered the food for dinner. When the food arrived, I noticed that the rojak sauce spilled and messed up my laksa packs.

Though it was not a big deal, I took a picture and sent it to the cs for feedback, hoping that the future packaging would improve. So, I was surprised when I received a response from them that they regretted this incident and would give me 100% refund on my order!

Of course this would be paid by the food vendor, but it is a good feedback loop for them to pack their items properly, in order to prevent spillage when transported by the grab delivery service guys/gals.

Repeat Customers due to Good CS Provided

Yes, I was so pleasantly surprised. And of course, the following day, I ordered from them again and double the quantity ordered as I had this positive experience with them.

So, their good customer service gained them repeated customers again. For the platform as well as the food provider, as I do enjoy the laksa and rojak a lot.

I am not sure if I am biased due to the good service I received from foodpanda or not. But, I realised that foodpanda platform service fees seems to be lower than grab’s these days!

What are your thoughts on the foodpanda, grab or deliveroo service provider in your area?

WTF is Metaverse

WTF is Metaverse?

Many of you may wonder as you hear the news about the Facebook name change! Facebook has officially announced their new name to Metaverse!  What a clever s$ab@#.

But, what is Metaverse?  Facebook practically took the virtual world by storm when it took the name!!

WTF is Metaverse!

Metaverse

Metaverse is a virtual reality space in which users can interact with a computer generated environment and other users.

Meta comes from the Greek word which means with, across or after. 

Oh yes, universe, here comes metaverse, not the company.  Even before the launch of Metaverse, there have been many companies that have successfully launched their metaverse games versions like the Decentraland, Crypto Punks, Bored Ape Yacht Club, CyberKongz and etc.  They have been making and getting multimillions investments to build and launch the games on the blockchains. 

Cryptocurrencies

Now, you may be asking wtf does crypto has to do with this?  Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on how you see it, it has to do with everything!

And oh, yes, if you are into cryptocurrencies trading and investments, you would have come across many of the tokens and coins that are behind all these metaverses games.

Blockchain, Metaverses and Cryptos

You can now easily buy and sell coins via Coinhako, Coinbase or Crypto.  And if you want more details to how to use them, check out our previous write up on setting up and using cryptocurrencies app.

And if you think you are too cool for crypto and you do not want to burn yourself investing in crypto, I respect your decision totally.  Your money, your life!

The Banks and The Government

Unfortunately, while you listen to the news of crypto being hacked, how dangerous it is to buy into crypto …

Ya, I know there are always some big bad wolves out there, just be a little conscious and check out your sources.

Quietly and quickly behind the scenes, the government, the banks have been the first to build and scoop in the ground work to all these.

What! Are you serious!
Whatt!!

Don’t take my word for it, check these out.

Oh! And for you curious heads out there, you may want to check out what is NFT. Yup, you guess it right again! WTF is NFT! If it is too heavy for your read today, you may park it for later.

Universe?

So, what is the universe up to? There goes the universe! 

Uni comes from the Latin word which means one.  Universe means one world, right.

Now, with the evolution of metaverses, people can now have another life, multiple lifes in the virtual world.  The world where you can be anything you want.  The world where you can be royalty, king, the big bad boss, you think it, you can be it.

Now, this gives a wider meaning to the “what you are today, were once thoughts”!

5 Mistakes to Avoid When Creating Your Content or Offer

These are 5 Mistakes to Avoid When Creating Your Content or Offer.

Have you read some content or offer online and get pissed off with how obvious the marketer are trying to sell you the product or service?  Yes, let us see what are the top 5 mistakes you should avoid as a marketer.

  1. Forcing the products and services into customers.  Just like the old traditional network marketing method, there are still many marketers who are hardselling their products and services online.  So, please no hardselling when creating and writing your content and offer online.
  2. Inconsistency is another top mistakes that many marketers made.  Giving inconsistent information and details of your products and services can turn customers off and prevent them from signing up or buying from you.  It is important to capture customers’ trusts with consistent, relevant information.  Make it interesting for your customers.
  3. Generalism is common, do not make the same mistake.  Know your audience, who you are speaking to and cater your products and services to your customers.
  4. Make it simple and easy for customers to understand.  There are many who made the mistakes of complicating things with long, irrelevant and loads of overloaded information.  Avoid doing this.
  5. Make your brand stands out.  Many marketers are too general when creating thier products and services.  Make sure that customers know about the added advantages of getting your products and services vs your competition.  Be specific about the features and benefits of your products and services.

Be specific, let your brand stands out from your competition, make it simple for your customers to understand, be consistent and share and NOT hard sell your products and services when creating your next content or offer for your customers.

Cheers and happy content and offer creating and designing!
