I wasn't sure what she meant when she asked " are you the one?". I havent quite made the celebrity club yet(Not even sure I want to) so I still get tickled when I'm "recognised" but she didnt recognise me it was the "Afrobeat tshirt " I wore that gave me away. "My name is Tomi rotimi"I replied still not sure what that meant. then she did something that I wasnt expecting....she put her hands around me in a tight embrace " I love your work!" I relaxed a bit...I know sizzle,joygirl,multipanel and Michelle are practically household names now but me? Nobody really knows me and most dont even know my name.So when one or two people make the connection between 'Xclamations" and "tomi rotimi" its a pleasant....very pleasant surprise.
" So I guess you are a customer then" I said chuckling
" Oh yes" she said and proceeded to tell me all about her "xclamations experience"
In her own words:
"I got a copy of a magazine and saw your advert.The design featured was lovely but then there are so many nice designs out there.What struck me was the fact that you had an online store! I said to myself ok this is new and decieded to check it out. The website was amazing and I browsed through for about two hours before attempting to make purchases. Believe me I was scared! I said a little prayer before clicking " buy now" and it was done. I had paid for 7 designs at about 11pm and I could now only hope I had not been naive to think it was that easy. I said to myself I hope someone calls me.
The next day at about 1pm, I saw three missed calls from a strange number followed by a text message from the same number.It was from xclamations.The young lady called to confirm my order as well as the delivery address I has provided. I was so happy and happier still when I recieved my buys.They were all lovely and all fitted perfectly. I was so happy with them and even more proud of xclamations".
Moments like that simply give me the motivation to carry on.I am committed to selling convenience to my customers and it is rewarding when your work is appreciated and surpasses expectations. Many more customers are buying from our online store and so far sooooooooo good. So if you see me on the street someday let me know what we do matters to you.Gracias.
