As the owners of the bestofnorwich we do our utmost best to go beyond people's expectations. We don't always succeed - every business has things that don't go to plan, but most of the time we get amazing feedback from our clients.
So, when I went to moderate a testimonial this evening and saw the words:
"Thanks to this site, I travelled from Cambs......"
My heart plummeted and I thought, "Oh no, what's gone wrong."
I had images of someone travelling all the way from Cambridge to Norwich only to have a bad experience. Now this is actually very unlikely, as we vet all our clients, but your mind isn't always at it's most optimistic late on a weekday evening when you're catching up on work.
Then I read on and was amazed - this is what they said:
"Thanks to this site, I travelled from Cambs to have my hair cut and coloured with Kate and I wasn't disappointed!
She was fantastic - I loved the colour and the cut. She was lovely (good dance moves) and made me feel at home.
I won't be going anywhere else - the products are fantastic too."
She then went on to say:
"I wanted to find a hairdresser who used organic products and because of the comments on this site I went to see Katie. I'd like to thank everyone for commenting as I have just found a total gem!
For the first time ever I walked out of a hairdressers loving my cut and colour! Katie just knew what would suit me and did a fantastic job. She also cut my boyfriends hair and he was happy too! It was well worth the drive and I will not be going anywhere else."
Hurray for the power of testimonials and word of mouth marketing.

And the business she was talking about? Orb Organic Hair.
