How to Help Customers Effectively. There are many answers. Some take humanity into account.

The advice below was found while browsing a Linked-In network discussion on "How to Help Customers Effectively":

"...great strategy to ensure your message resonates with your target audience. To expand on that, it's super important to know who your buyer personas (target audience) are, and where they reside online--and offline--in order to effectively reach, communicate and engage with them to drive a call to action. Do you have a marketing communications plan in place? It's also critical to have definitive and measurable marketing goals and objectives--and part of that circles back up to knowing who and where your buyers are...and through which channels you will reach them."

It sounds like a lot of dehumanizing gibberish with "relationships" based upon success in behavioral conditioning of "target audiences" to properly respond to buzzword calls to action -- to adopt the parlance..

One of my heroes in the Bible is Nathaniel, said by the Lord to be an Israelite "in whom there is no guile." "NO GUILE": that's the best character trait for building honest relationships and truly having a heart to help customers. I doubt any human being could pass "The Turing Test" by actively engaging in trying to evaluate "buyer personas...and where they order a call to action...and through which channels you will reach them."

The next person through the doors of my store (just like all of those before and all of those yet to come) will get a "Howdy. Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to look around as much as you like. If you have questions, or need help 
with anything, I'm here to help in every way I can." 

God forbid I should ever become a creature or machine who spends a moment trying to assess the "buyer persona" of the people I meet.

New Oriental Rug from Bucks County, PA rug store Brandon Oriental Rugs is One of the First Steps in a Home Makeover by the Homeowners

Hand-knotted oriental rug selected by the homeowners from Brandon Oriental Rugs makes things look
pretty good already; but became just the first of many steps in a major home makeover.

Homeowners from Bucks County, referred to us by an interior designer, have advanced from the early stages of refurnishing their living room. Their old sofa seen above has since been removed. 

The handmade oriental rug they selected from Bucks County, PA rug store Brandon Oriental Rugs as one of the first steps in the room makeover enabled them subsequently to make decisions at a relaxed pace to advance their plans. The room was made comfortable, intimate and beautiful by their decision to introduce the traditional rug. Had they done no more, they could have been proud of their room as seen above.

But the rug inspired them with new ideas to update the living room: their main living space and site of so much that is important in the life of their family.

The images below show how things have rapidly advanced with the home's interior design. A new sofa, and some additional handmade rugs from Brandon have brought a fresh elegance to the expanded living room and adjacent spaces.

( Hand-knotted oriental rugs are time travelers. The photo of this room could have been taken in the 1960's, or yesterday. It makes virtually no difference to the rug which functions the same fifty years ago as it does today, or even fifty years from now. (Quite unlike the cameras for which there is no longer any film, or the typewriter for which there is no longer a replacement ribbon.)

Subsequent History of the Land of Oz: The wicked witch melted away. The Wizard in his balloon drifted away into the empyrean, never to be seen again. Dorothy made an affirmation, clicked her heels together, and was transported back to Kansas. Succeeding the Wizard as administrator of Oz, the sagacious Scarecrow afterward initiated an infrastructure improvement program to resurface the Yellow Brick Road with real oriental rugs. Having endured something of an ordeal in his recent travel on the road, Scarecrow justified the project as "a brilliant way to improve the surface; making the path more beautiful and comfortable." All those who have been there since say that the rugs make it look and feel like home.
