Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

My sister gave me a gift subscription of Men's Health Magazine. That was very nice of her. However, I soon received a cookbook in the mail, with instructions that I had 21 days to look at it, and then I had to either pay or return the book. It's a good thing I called their customer service. They had me signed up for all sorts of things that my sister never signed me up for, and that I never heard of. The customer service person, named "Candy", told me that I had to return the book, or they would demand payment. (I did not want the book, and I think I would be legally within my rights to throw the thing away, but it wouldn't be worth the fight.) In the end, they stole my time (in talking with them, mailing the book back), but not so much money, since they sent me a postage-paid return label. I only had to pay for the box and the gas. Still, yucky experience...I will absolutely encourage my sister NOT to continue the Men's Health subscription.
