A DVD shop blog!

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!

  1. vinu,

    thats an example of web2.0 samaritanism ( not sure thats spelt right, in fact not even sure that word exists)..

    keep it up…

    if ever you stand for elections in your city, you are surely assured of one vote now !


  2. Have you heard of Clixflix.com ? Its an online DVD Rental Club and services the whole of Mumbai. The cool thing is you can build a complete queue of movies and theyll send them to you 1 or 2 at a time.

  3. Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations? eceacddbbade
