Well, I spent a couple of hours with my DVD shop owner and I started a blog for him at of course wordpress – check it out at studiodvd.wordpress.com.
His shop name is “StudioDVD”.
I understands how a blog is going to help him! I explained him the difference between a post and blog. Told him how he could use categories – action, drama and romance … includes softporn (as of now a page) too ;-0
He has learnt how to enter a post and link it to Imdb. He is really impressed about the concept of blog and wordpress! He love the ‘stats’ page.
The benefits I have – I can easily see what new movies have come. And also see the rating immediately. I don’t have to bother calling him, then ask him whether this movie is good or not … saves his time and my time and both of us are better informed. And guess what – I check out the blog on my cellphone while returning from office. and then I call him up and say bring this dvd home. And the dvd is they delivered at my home before I reach my house! 🙂 cool na?
… and another huge benefit – he has asked my sister and me to come for a dinner someday (I loved that) and yeah in terms of perks of my work – 50% discount in my dvd rental prices.
Well, I am sure blogs will permeate into indian business and the cool UIs with internet technology – Indian small shop and business entreprenuers will adopt it in a great way!
