Online Ordering Appliances

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Buying on the internet is a wonder.

If you’ve regularly followed news of online trends you’ve likely encountered criticism of online reviews.

It’s been reported they’re faked. Evidence of negative reviews from competitors have spawned an entire industry in reputation management.

If a bad review contains pictures of damage, such as to an appliance, that lends credibility. And I found a few while researching a product.

In more than a few negative ones, cosmetic complaints were by far the milder issues experienced. With no personal assessment purchase is essentially on faith.

Several were directed to the delivery process.

For example, in this wonderful world of instant communication, a prearranged time for a refrigerator delivery changed merely by text message which, regardless of how close to the original schedule it was sent, was missed. Then, no one was there to receive it.

Others expected the refrigerator delivered to the kitchen.

Apparently this doesn’t jibe with the policy of some companies. They might not unpackage the item nor enter the premises if it fails to fit through the entrance.

This leaves one with a large box in front of the house, in an unverified condition (i.e. the extent of damage is unknown).

And last but not least, return policy.

A dealer may offer a (substantial) discount to accept the delivery. (Umm…no thanks!)

Or they may require repackaging the refrigerator as a condition to return it.

Imagine having to pack a refrigerator on your front porch piecing Styrofoam padding together and reconstructing the box.

I’ve not done exhaustive investigation in this area, but what I found so far is these delivery companies are contractors. Third party involvement can add a certain “je ne sais quoi.”

What constitutes a proper delivery in my opinion:

  • Arrives within the timeframe expected
  • Item is unpacked by delivery person(s)
  • Transported to premises in desired location
  • Quick, no delicate maneuvering
  • Inspection allowed prior to acceptance

Delivery is not an easy job and delivery persons may be constrained by company policy, but if a service is offered it should be comprehensive and treat customer satisfaction as the ultimate goal.

Providers of a product as a source or middleperson, generate goodwill at the very least from a proper delivery. If selling through a channel like Amazon, be aware of the third party phenomenon.

It seems experience is varied by state as much as by vendor. Best recommendation is to search “[provider] appliance delivery reviews” and draw your own conclusions. Include local stores in the search.

Obviously it pays to know as much as possible in advance about the return policy and I hope this article has helped.

Special Teams Can Help Score


If you use/depend on SEO to maintain and boost and boost traffic to your website you are quite aware of the dynamic nature of search engine results. Page 1 presence can disappear unexpectedly if you haven't kept up with change in ranking criteria. This can sometimes also mean previously valid methods become invalid.

I treated this topic some time ago in a post titled "Penguins, Pandas and Bears, Oh My!" and by all observations, a number still struggle significantly with the same issues.

Certain constants have persisted through the algorithm updates: quality content, backlinks to authoritative sites, optimal website performance and organization, and (a relatively recent addition) consistent social media presence. A couple of these methods must also be delicately balanced.


Given such rigorous challenges, you have to admire those who choose to play in this arena.

One gentleman by the name of Julian Goldie has made an easy-to-digest video on enabling page 1 ranking on Google.

SEO specialists are part of the broad range of opportunities the digital economy provides. The suggestion to hire assistants for generating content provides opportunities in contribution and advising on finding them.

SEO is an evolving art/science, resembling and following technological innovation. It's interesting how developments will proceed.

Whether you are a "do-it-yourself-er" or an educator/advisor, there are guides and videos that show how to improve site visibility.  They can build your business in more than one way.

Plan Your Site In Top Results

So, SEO isn't dead, thanks to our old friends Time and Money.

Finding your audience and building a following takes time. Depending on a number of factors it could take an excessive amount of time.

If you pay for placement at the top of the search engines, you can easily find yourself paying $1, $2, $5 or even more per click for the top keyword phrases.

Time spent on SEO can have a quicker ROI potential (by researching right terms) and cost effectiveness (zero cost via tactics learned). But you have to know what you're doing and be aware of what's currently working, otherwise results may be worse than none at all.
