Face it, you can see who you’re dealing with at Apollo

Apollo Blinds is only successful because of our network of brilliant people. Which is why we are as keen as mustard to ensure everyone sees these shining stars.

We’ve just uploaded more photographs of Apollo peeps onto the individual store pages on our website and it now features, stars such as Gemma in Stirling, Kwasi in Watford or Christine in Leeds Cookridge.

Having these pictures online enables customers to see who they will be dealing with and this is vitally important because it does influence whether people who find Apollo Blinds online then pick up the phone to make an appointment or visit a showroom to see the stunning array of blinds, awnings and shutters.

We are seeing results that indicate this approach is working big time. Our Apollo teams are reporting that new customers talk to them as if they’ve known them for a long time and they can only put this down to is the fact that customers have seen their picture and feel they know them.

And it’s this simple reason which is helping our Apollo teams set themselves apart from local competition.

The internet is proving that being the face of a business is good for business.

Apollo now has 70 Ken Dodds

Friday, August 27th, 2010

Homeowners who have arranged a free no-obligation home visit from Apollo Blinds will be forgiven for thinking that Ken Dodd has turned up on their doorstep, complete with tickling sticks.

As well as showcasing our stunning collections of window blinds, shutters and awnings, our franchise owners will also be carrying our new range of ostrich feather dusters on home appointments.

Our consultants aren’t on a mission to tickle the orders out of prospective customers – although that would be an interesting new sales technique. They will be showcasing the ostrich feather dusters to show customers how to keep their blinds dust-free and in tip-top condition for years to come.

It’s all very well having stunning blinds in any window which help to make homes beautiful, but we want to make sure they stay beautiful – which is why after sales is so important to us. As well as offering a minimum two-year guarantee on collections, offering ostrich feather dusters is another way Apollo Blinds franchise owners stand out from the crowd and leave customers tickled pink.
