Lyceum commented on the following stories on BizSugar
John: I think a loyalty program should be plain and simple, give it to the customers in a short and sweet way. I do have a problem with the wording in the following sentence: "Small business should always go above and beyond the call of duty to keep them happy." I don't think the business has a duty to keep the customer happy. It is a matter of voluntarily trade between two parties. Maybe the expression "call of duty" has a different meaning in this instance. Do you have examples of successful loyalty programs?"
Mike More: Is this service similar to BlogAds? I am a serious blogger. I have been blogging since May 2002, but I don't use my own domain name for EGO blog. It is well established on Blogger's Blogspot hub. I started a new site [under construction] in April 2009, with my own domain (www.EgoSoleTrader.com). "You can't be serious about blogging without your own domain name." Please explain this rule: "Domain should be < $9/year! try Name.com. also check for PromoCodes before you buy :)" "
Dragos: Great list of traits! I am striving to become a highly successful blogger. I have been blogging since May 2002. I will link to your post in my next post on EGO blog. I haven't updated it since January 1, so I am struggling with "4. Persistence" at the moment! ;)"
Zane: Thanks for pointing this out! Every executive manager, business leader, etc. should read your post! Have you read "Read This First: The Executive's Guide to New Media-from Blogs to Social Networks" by Ron Ploof? It is on my buying & reading list..."
Yonatan Maisel: I don't agree with your #3 point on altruism. I am not sacrificing any higher value by spreading my tips, advice and pieces of the "puzzle." I am doing it as a rational selfish individual and a social media enthusiast. My time is "weighted in gold," or in my case, silver. I will write another comment with an excerpt from my post, Sponsor and Support EGO Blog < http://egoist.blogspot.com/2009/02/sponsor-and-support-ego-blog.html >, in order for you to understand my take on the "milk" and "cow" trade. You are welcome to buy the milk and the cow if you are acting according to the trader principle and trade value for value."
