Unique, Original Content Can Come with Great Customer Service

If you’ve ever utilized the services of a copywriter or copywriting company, you may have been a bit taken aback at the level of service you received. In fact, many of Priceless Writers’ personal clients have initiated contact like this; “I tried another copywriting service and they were terrible. Do you think you can fix this?” Not only do many clients receive terrible copy, they also receive terrible customer service, which is unacceptable. Here are some things you should expect when hiring a custom content company.

Friendly Service

Contrary to popular belief, you can receive friendly service from a unique content company. Quite frankly, if you’re not receiving it, you should probably look around and check your options. Does your freelance writer keep you up to date with what’s going on? Do they suggest methods or techniques which may help your business? These are just a few of the requirements of friendly service in a unique content company. Friendly service should not get shoved out the window simply because you’re not conducting business face to face. You are paying for a service and with that service you should be treated like a great customer, not a burden or frustration.

Guarantees and Promises

When your unique content company makes a promise or a guarantee, they should follow through every single time. When you need something done by a certain time, you should get it. Following through with guarantees and promises is not hard if your copywriter values your business. Times certainly have changed and customers have come to expect long response times for their questions, waiting for an unreasonable amount of time for products or services they’ve purchased and cold, unfriendly service. It’s refreshing to know that there are still copywriting companies that give quick answers, turn completed projects in on time and follow through with their guarantees and promises.

Going Above and Beyond

Most people who hire a custom content company online really don’t expect much, which is unfortunate. There are still copywriters who care about your work, your schedule and your deadlines. There are still freelancers who go above and beyond to make sure you are given elite customer service, and to make sure that you are satisfied. A copywriter is a valuable asset when he or she strives to make your working relationship enjoyable and satisfactory on both ends.

If you’ve struggled to find a unique content company that you are happy with and haven’t had much luck, don’t give up. There are still many out there that provide excellent customer service along with top-notch writing. Make sure you are receiving great customer service, otherwise you shouldn’t be ordering the service!

How To Prepare For The Investment Banking Interview

It seems that the investment banking industry has narrowly escaped Armaggedon and the survivors are waiving the bonus flags again. Intern classes are getting bigger and Business Week reported that Goldman Sachs has reclaimed the top spot as the most popular employer among elite MBA students again. If you are a career switcher and one among many MBA applicants dreaming of joining Goldman Sachs or another bulge bracket investment bank for the summer internship, this article is for you. Below we provide an overview of an investment banking interview and explain why it’s important to prepare in advance. This is especially true if you are a career switcher.

There are several types of questions which you are likely to be asked in your interview. They include career questions, educational questions, competency questions, fit questions, technical questions and industry questions.

While it’s difficult to predict which questions exactly you will be asked, there are four questions which will appear in any investment banking interview:
- The WMTYR (Walk me through your resume)
- The 3 Why’s (Why investment banking? Why our bank? Why (should we hire) you?

The answer to the first and the second questions may be quite similar to those you provided in your MBA admission interviews. Answer to the third question is a little bit more complicated and will require specific preparation.

The usual reason for interest in any specific investment bank include: (a) a strong platform, which means strong coverage teams, diverse offering of advisory and financial products, many interesting deals and opportunities to learn (b) a strong presence in specific markets or industries (c) and the most important, tons of wonderful and smart people with whom you talked with during your recruiting process and whom you really made a connection with. Networking is a critical component for your interview preparation but we will discuss this area in one of our
future postings.

Why (should we hire) you? To answer this question you need to reiterate your main strengths, interest in a specific bank and a great fit you feel for the bank you are interviewing with.
You should prepare for this question especially well as a bank’s approach to this question will usually be that a person who cannot sell himself cannot sell the bank’s products and banking is definitely a sales job.

Good to know Other challenging fit questions examining your understanding of the
investment banking can be:
- What does an investment banker actually do?
- What is the role of an associate in the investment banking?
The answer to the first question will usually go in the following way:
• An investment bank serves as intermediaries between their clients
who need capital in the form of debt and equity
• It provides strategic advisory services by structuring transactions
that meet clients needs and objectives
• Overall, Investment bank works with companies on the transactions
that will enhance their value. This may include accessing capital
markets to find growth or expand operations, as well as investing in another
company through merger or acquisition. Banks are not only the
matchmaker between parties involved in a transaction, but also the primary
architects of the deal.

A typical answer to the question about the role of an associate will
go like this :
• Analyzing industry and company data related to the transaction
• Building excel models to valuate companies
• Joining strategic meetings
• Performing due diligence meetings with the clients
• Creating, editing client presentations
• Monitoring, paying close attention to documentation associated with
the deal (prospectus, internal memos)
• Managing relationship with an analyst
The most important attributes that an associate should have are:
quantitative skills, the ability to learn quickly, discipline, a strong work ethic, the ability to
work in teams, detail orientation and dependability.

While answering competency and behavioral questions you should be structured and succinct. Banks like well organized and structured thinking and will quickly dismiss candidates who ramble or cannot distinguish important points from the less important ones. We recommend creating 3 bullet points for each of your answers and putting them on the paper in advance. Practice your answers with friends and be sure that your story is consistent and flows well before the interview.

The technical part

The technical part of the interview will test your familiarity with the accounting and financial terms. This will definitely require thorough preparation even if you study at one of the top MBA programs . First of all you will need to be familiar with the financial statements and their analysis. The profit and loss statement, the balance sheet and cash flow statements are all fair game in the interview.
Secondly, you will need to have a basic understanding of the company’s valuation methods. You should be very familiar with terms such as cost of capital, cash flow discounting, multiples, accretion and dilution, LBO, CAPM, WACC and Beta.

You also may be asked how M&A and IPOs work and even be given a case study on a business situation. It is strongly recommended that you start b-school having at least a basic understanding of accounting and finance.

You will be asked about financial news and trends, current articles related to investment banking, discussions of the economic environment and economic trends, trends in M&A and definitely about specific deals.

To be prepared for this part of the interview it’s advisable to start reading financial and economic newspapers and journals. The Wall Street Journal, FT and Economist are good sources to gain relevant knowledge.

A couple of additional hints:

Step by Step Guide to Starting Your Own Cleaning Business

Are you thinking of starting your own cleaning business?

Here is a great starting point:

Step by step instructions to getting set up for success!

First and foremost, you have to decide what area of cleaning you would like to do. Do you have an interest in doing residential or commercial cleaning? With residential cleaning, you will be working in your clients home. With commercial, you will work in office buildings, apartments, restaurants, construction sites, etc. Residential is usually done during the day and commercial is done after hours. Decide what is most appealing to you. You can even do both. It is best to start out small and, once you get the experience, you can move on to offering many different services.

Set yourself apart from others. If you offer residential house cleaning and you have a lot of competition in your area, you may want to offer a “special touch” to your cleaning services. For example, offer bed turnovers, laundry service (if that is your thing), and dish washing. Never compromise your prices to try to get ahead of the competition!

Now that you know what you are interested in and what sort of business you want to set up, you can get started on the business side of it.

First step in setting up your business is deciding on a business name. You need to set up a business name before you can get a license or go any further. Your name should be catchy. You want your potential clients to go straight to yours. Having a name that ties you to the community works best, in my opinion. For example, if you live in Westtown, you can call your business, “Westtown’s Elite Cleaning Services”. Just make sure no one else took that name first. Try to get creative as well.

Now that you have a name, you can get licensed. Contact your local government office to see what sort of business license you will need in your state. Many will just need to register with the state and will not need a license, but it varies. After you check with your state, try your local, township office. Sometimes, they want to know about your business as well and you may need approval. Just make sure all ground is covered so you don’t run into any surprises. I actually went to a township meeting this month and they discussed another individual wanting to start a business selling cars on eBay. He said the cars would be in a garage and never seen by neighbors, but he still needed to get approval. This surprised me. I never thought about township approval. You also need to check on sales tax. Some services are being charged sales tax. Check to see if you need to collect sales tax from your customers.

Once you are licensed, it is time to set up the paperwork part of your business. You will need a cleaning service agreement (businesses are using agreements instead of contracts since contracts have received a bad name) for your clients to sign with a list of your policies and procedures as well as your client’s needs. You will need a cleaning checklist to record what you did during each cleaning. Those are the most important and “necessary” forms you will need. Sound overwhelming? You can purchase these online already premade or make them yourself. I would recommend purchasing them unless you are pretty good with research and design. You want these to look professional. These are your customers first experience with you.

Alright, now you have a business name, license and the paperwork. You are getting closer…

Next you need insurance. Insurance is a MUST. There are so many things you can run into and you should be protected. You may think you can get away with it, but, Murphy’s Law, something will happen when you are not prepared. Your clients trust you with their property. If you should break something, especially something expensive, you are responsible. If you don’t want to pay for a $1000 item out of pocket, get insurance. For commercial businesses, you will, more than likely, be required to have it in order to get clients. Most will not hire without insurance and a particular amount of insurance. You will mainly only need liability insurance, but be sure you talk to the carriers about the best coverage. Make sure you shop around for your quotes. Call your local carriers first. Some other places of interest may be Low Quotes. They will give you quotes from lots of companies. If you do a search for liability insurance for small businesses, you will find a lot of companies.

Next is bonding. Bonding is there to protect you and your company against theft. The way bonding works is if your client accuses you or an employee of theft, the police are involved. They will do a criminal investigation. If they find you or your employee guilty, the bond pays out and you then repay the bond. Some clients want you to be covered and people will get it as a marketing tool. It is up to you if you want to purchase it. You can ask who is carrying your insurance if they offer bonding and add it on to your policy.

Okay, you are bonded, licensed, insured and physically ready to start. Now you need to get clients…

Marketing is the trickiest, most frustrating and time-consuming part of this business. Once you get some clients, the ball will start rolling more by word-of-mouth, but for now, you need to advertise…

Flyers are the cheapest and are best for getting just your area. Now, you can’t put them in people’s mailboxes without going through the post office…it is illegal. But, you can put them on people’s doors and cars. Basically, put them anywhere you go which has a bulletin board (supermarket, post office, supply stores, etc). One great way to gain commercial clientele is to compile a list from the phone book of businesses and fax your flyer to them. You will be surprised at how much feedback you will receive. Other than that, get listed as much as you can on the internet. There are many local websites which will list you for free. Do a search as if you were looking for a cleaning professional in your area and see what comes up. Any directories that come up, get listed there, even if you have to pay for it. Remember, you have to spend money to make money!

Another good advertising technique is the community newspaper. It is cheap, about $10/week and everyone gets one for free.

After that we go up in price. Getting in the yellow pages is expensive and you can only get in at the right time of the year when they are publishing their new book. Call for rates.

When you are ready, get a website. Once you have a website submitted to the search engines, you will start to come up with the search results. For example, if you live in Seattle and someone is searching for a cleaner in Seattle, your site will come up. This will be very beneficial since most people will search while they are at work. Home Business Forms can make you a professional website for a low price. Visit the website packages page for more information.

Alright, now you are advertised and you should be getting that first call any day now…but what are you going to get asked and are you ready to answer questions?

They are going to first ask what your rates are. Do you know what you want to charge? Keep it simple. I see people charging flat rates to all these extras. Don’t confuse your potential clients and don’t make it seem more difficult. This will turn them away. Be straight to the point. Have all you want to offer and rates written out and ready for their call. You will be determining the time you will be spending there by # of bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage and type of cleaning. It is typically done per hour. Most charge anywhere from $20-$30 per hour. Typically, ovens, fridges, laundry, etc is not included. Make sure you know what you will and will not be doing. Larger commercial buildings are generally done by square footage. The amount per square foot varies greatly. If you want a better idea of the going rate in your area, call other companies and see what they charge. Stay competitive with their rates. You don’t want to go lower thinking that will gain more clients. It doesn’t usually work out that way. Charge what you feel you are worth and your clients will feel you are worth it too.

Next they will ask you if you are licensed, insured and bonded. Hopefully, you can say YES and give them piece of mind.
