It's been a bit of a quiet week for me, as I've had my head down doing some work. But yesterday I ended up doing some running around to clients and suppliers in the pouring rain.
I stopped at Oxford St Bulimba and had to pass the beautiful Mary Ryan's bookshop.
My pace always slows as I pass this store as there are so many things to look at, flowers, prints, gifts and inside the books and coffee shop.
The main reason for stopping at Oxford St though, was to look at something that a few of my clients have been discussing with me recently.
A touch screen incorporated into the shopfront. The Ray White real estate office have one in their window. It's a great interactive tool and especially for the real estate industry which works even when the office is closed. Oxford St, full of its many restaurants is the perfect location. When people finish dinner they go window shopping at night past the many lovely stores. I've witnessed this touch screen in action and I would imagine in the mornings the glass needs a good clean from finger marks.
You can even save your preferences for properties and speak directly to the sales staff about those saved selections. A great idea and in addition to websites, blogs and all the other social media avenues, a fantastic way to keep your business working without you needing to be there all the time.
