Far from Easy Space

February 20, 2010

Hi everyone, sorry for the bit of downtime we’re experiencing lately. You may not be able to access our blog from the usual web address, or send us emails. We’re in the process of changing Domain Name Provider. In the meantime, you can email us via the contact page on our blog.

Our domain has always been with Easyspace but when faced with a renewal bill 9x that of 123-reg, we decided to change suppliers. We use 123-reg a lot anyway, to register our customer’s domains. This is mainly because of their full access, easy-to-use control panel, but they’re also pretty cheap.

So, back to Easyspace. Unfortunately I had let the Domain renewal expire by 2 days (I know, I know!), so I had to call and let them know I wanted to change Domain Name Provider. They said I’d need to renew it with them for a further year before I could transfer away (at 4x the cost 123-reg charge). The only other option I had was to let it lapse (30-60 days, then back in public domain for sale). Now, that’s not really an option, is it! This doesn’t seem like a fair rule to me, more like holding my domain to ransom.

For a final kick in the teeth, Easyspace charge a £15 admin fee for transferring the domain away. I’m astounded they are allowed to do this! They don’t even have to do anything! The gaining Registrar and I do the work. I was a dissatisfied (now former) customer and let the guy on the phone know. His reply ‘Sorry, but I don’t make the rules’. I understand that, but I’m sure someone, somewhere, in Easyspace is interested to know that they’ve lost a customer due to price.

Anyway, I paid up, not happy… but happy to be leaving Easyspace. It just seems strange to me that when I call to say I’m leaving, after 5 years, due to price… rather than offer me a loyalty discount and attempt to keep my custom, they simply charge me £15. The last £15 I will ever pay them.

Beware Orange Elephants

Swansea BID

February 18, 2010

Swansea Business Improvement District or BID, is a co-operative of businesses that together fund improvements to the city centre. The BID allows businesses in the city centre to identify key issues that impact on their trading and start projects to tackle them. 2010 is a crucial year as October brings businesses the opportunity to cast their supporting vote for Swansea BID. More information on Swansea BID can be found on their website.

We were asked to rebrand the existing BID logo. Russell Greenslade, BID Manager, instructed us to design a logo that was
• Vibrant
• Energetic
• Fresh
• New
• Approachable
• & Attainable

The logo below is the cornerstone for the rebrand.
Keep an eye out for the new Website coming soon.

Scheduled Downtime

January 13, 2010

Sorry guys but we will be closed between the 20th and 27th of January,
open again on the 28th January.

If you are interested in any of this months offers, please let us know asap.
If you decide you want to go ahead while we’re away – do not worry – we’ll be back before the offers end.

If you need something printed urgently while we are away – look online at www.printing.com for a list of alternative stores and online prices.
Although please be aware that other stores will not have direct access to previously printed files.

Remember to check that you have enough business cards and letterheads etc.
We wouldn’t want you running short during this time! (Especially when we have a great deal on business cards).

We are available for a week or so yet, so do get in touch regarding any ideas you may have.

One of the best things about eBay is the customer service. I’m not kidding! When ‘normal’ people sell stuff on eBay, they treat the buyer as they would like to be treated themselves. Communication is personal and the seller will try very hard to make sure the buyer leaves them good feedback.

OK, it doesn’t ALWAYS happen like this. People aren’t always geared up to give the best service. Their systems aren’t as efficient as ours are in business and that can let them down. But we can still learn a lot from genuine eBay sellers, applying their level of customer service to our ability to deliver the product.

We’ve been elected to the Printing.com Passive Marketing Committee in 2010.
It’s very exciting. We need to find out what YOU think so we can stay on the right track.

We welcome your thoughts on everything from our Buying Guides and ‘Ideas’ Magazine, to our Monthly Offers.
What would you like next Months offer to be?

Give us a call and let us know what you think.
Or if you’re shy, you can email us or leave a reply on this page.
