What's in the brain?
Monday. 2.1.16 6:41 pm
Sometimes words coming out from people's mouth never failed to amaze me.
I sometimes don't understand what is running in their head.
At 0730 morning, I received a message from my friend asking me about a health product's delivery to his home country. To cut the story short, I have informed him that the product is sold in my country as RMXXX. I didn't tell him the wholesale price because firstly I have not had the reply from supplier and secondly I was asking him to find out if there is a market. According to another business person, his home country is rather saturated with things. Even this business person is from the same country as my friend, she is opting out her own country. My friend said that RMXXX is expensive and to include the delivery price, the price may go up to USD100 per product which is too expensive for the locals. I agree. And he is willing to compete on price if the profit margin is huge.
What drives me mad at wee morning is the accusation of that product is manufactured cheaply and sold at premium price. It's the tone of communication I no longer can tolerate even though I want to do business.
First and foremost. Prices for everything are hiking up, they never go down. Therefore, resources are getting more expensive especially natural resources especially when you want 'organic.'
Second. Even if the resources are cheap, labour and skill are no longer cheap anymore. If business people can tell us time is money, imagine the time and labour put into manufacturing the product? So we are also paying for people's time.
Third. People should rephrase their sentences properly before conveying to the other end. I dislike people accusing me in the first sentence that I have referred or selling inferior products. Don't ever say like this:
"Why is your source selling XX at such an expensive price? I can get the same item for 3 times cheaper."
Darling, is it so hard to rephrase to something like this?
"I have found the same product at a cheaper price. May I know why such big difference in the prices?"
The only difference is the price and quality.
I learnt that if you want good quality be ready to pay the price. Ask yourself what do you do when your life partner denigrate you? What happens when you buy an inferior quality that does not last long? Why don't you get a cheaper quality of life partner too?
So at 0830, I asked my friend what he was looking for. Price or quality? And he said price. No wonder he said "What if the bottling is just RM10 and I could sell it for USD 20?" Darling, what kind of food quality are you selling to people?
I won't even dare to eat especially if it's labeled as health products!
If my post is similar to your experience, I would suggest you not to jump on the gun that whoever the seller is trying to cheat you. There are still good people out there who want to do business honestly and ethically like myself.
I am only selling and referring products that of genuine quality tested by me. Pricing? Of course it's premium price for the quality and skill.
Still not convince? Simple, would you tell your boss that you will work for free? If not, why do you negotiate for your pay? Because you know you deserve that price. The same goes to products.
Thank you capitalism for putting a price tag on everything. =)
