How to Ruin a Brand with Dress Down Fridays

 

 

Are we still doing dress down Fridays?

A few years back, I went into the  bank on Friday and it was clearly dress down day. The people in the bank were in tennis shoes, baggy jeans, too tight tees and my teller actually had on a wife beater with red skull and cross bones. The guy sitting at the loan desk had on a suit but the rest of them look like they just came in from a picnic.

I don’t bank at that bank, thats a story for another day, however I wonder what this is doing to their brand. What are they trying to say with the dress down Friday? Why do they have it? If you are dealing with my money, I want you to look like you deal with money. I think it is not good brand management. Since you have one day a week where you are relaxed, are you relaxed about my money too?

I’m wondering, are we still doing Dress Down Fridays? If so, go ahead and leave a comment about what works and what doesn’t.

Of course, that’s why I love Gwynnie Bee, no worries about how I look!

An Unlimited Wardrobe- Gwynnie Bee

 

 

Most of you hear about me talking about Gwynnie Bee and I wanted to explain how it works. I love the clothes. They are for women sizes  10-22. It works the way Netflix used to work with the DVD’s. You can have a number of outfits out at a time, so its not 5 outfits a month, its 5 outfits at a time. You can rotate as many as you want. You can buy and keep any outfit you get. You can return anything you were with the postage paid bags. The truth is, when I travel, I bring the postage paid bags and send the clothes back before I go home. That way, my suitcase is actually lighter than it was BEFORE I left. This allows me to take pictures all the time and never be seen in the same outfit. I can speak and have something different on every day, every time. It’s a wonderful deal.

3 Rules for Giving to Non Profits

I am posting this on behalf of the Non-Profits everywhere and especially the ones I support. They can not say this without people being offended. I will say it for them.

Rule 1- GIVE NEW
Give NEW UNOPENED ITEMS. People who need clothes have dignity too. No one wants your jordache jeans or your slightly worn clothes that you found when you cleaned your closet. New toys, still wrapped, not used toys. It’s healthier and cleaner for the person receiving it. Buying used items is a choice the shopper makes, when people are in need, this is not the best thing for the charity or a person. It is not the same thing as you choosing to shop at a resale store. In some cases, the non-profit is prohibited by law from taking used items. Also, please don’t bring ( or ask to bring) LEFT OVER FOOD. The best bet is to give the Non-Profit Cash so they can get what is needed, not just what YOU want to give.

Rule 2- IT’S NOT A PETTING ZOO
Do not ask to see the people who are the recipients of your charity. Dropping off your donation should not become a petting zoo or a coffee date. Refrain from saying AWWW look at the ( FILL IN THE BLANK). If you want people in need to fall to their knees and thank you, you are in it for the wrong reason. If you are concerned that the charity will not give the items to the needy, you need to find another charity to support.

Rule 3- OLDER THAN 2015 IS TOO OLD.
Do not donate old books for “education” purposes. Everyone who is in school needs an up to date book. Your math book from 1988 is just junk that the Non-profit has to PAY a staff member to throw away. And Yes, that goes for Libraries too. You need to check with them to see if they will accept it, not drop off a box of junk they now have to pay money to get rid of it.

Bonus Rule: No means NO
When they say they can not accept your “donation” (translate as junk) be gracious and get off the phone. Have a 15-minute conversation about why they should take your items when they already told you they could not accept it, is a waste of time and emotionally exhausting.

BE A BLESSING WHEN YOU GIVE.
