Coffee Shop Talk with My American Friend and Hawkers - Baby Day Care Business, Ah Beng's Marketing Strategy
After reading Bananaz post, Don't Mess With Retired Husband, I remembered this funny coffee shop talk with my friends many years back.....
John : Hey Pete, this area sure has many baby day care centres. How come the authorities allow these people to use normal residential houses for day care business and playschool.
Pete : Hah, here everything also can! lol!
Ah Lian (coffee shop owner) : Actually I also thought about setting up baby day care centre. My friend who is one of the owner made quite a tidy sum of money leh! Hey John and Pete, you want to become my business partner?
Ah Beng (Chicken Rice stall owner) : Woit, count me in also. I want to put in my share!
Ah Lian : Aiya, Ah Beng, you only know how to sell chicken rice.....errrr sometime also know how to look for 'chicken', what can you contribute to this baby day care business?
Ah Beng : Cheh, don't say liddat (like that) lah! I can help you to do marketing mah. I have very good marketing plan and strategy leh!
Pete : Wah, Ah Beng talking about marketing strategy! ha ha ha!
John : Hey Beng, what is your strategy? Can you share your idea?
Ah Beng : Sure lah! You know ah, in baby care business, it is a number game. The more babies we have in our centre, then the more money we make lah.
Ah Lian : That I also know lah! How to make sure more babies enrol with us?
Ah Beng : Easy, every night, whenever I am free liao, I will visit every shops, pharmacies and hypermarket in this area. Then I will poke all their condom packets with needle. Then we will a baby boom in this area. Business will also boom lah!
Ah Lian : Boom your head lah! Talking nonsense! ha ha ha!
