How Simply Sold Saves Time Using Online Printing and Pickup
June 4, 2019
This is a sponsored testimonial.
For a business owner, life can move faster than you’d like. So, waiting for a custom print order (like business cards, banners, signs, presentation booklets or the like) can seem like an excruciating waste of time. There’s always a fire to put out, a campaign to monitor, creative to be approved, etc. But if you order online and pick up in-store like Ashley Wainscott, founder and owner of Simply Sold Home Renovations in Austin, that ‘wait time’ can suddenly become a period of productivity for you.
Ashley described her business needs from Office Depot – particularly from the copy and print department for professional presentation printouts, signage and event-related items that require branding. Simply Sold has been very busy over the last six years, helping over 1,300 customers with their hands-on renovation and remodeling processes. With a relatively small firm of dedicated employees (see Ashley’s hiring techniques), it requires Ashley and her team to work quickly and efficiently.
That means don’t sit and wait for an hour or more for a custom print job to be completed.
Ashley and Simply Sold’s solution to this problem is ordering custom prints online from the Office Depot website and then picking up the printouts at their convenience in a nearby store.
“We place orders online and it’s really easy, it’s customizable. You don’t have to sit in the store while you get all this done so you can do it from your home, your office, on the go. And what’s really nice is you can come in and pick it up and review it with the store, make sure you have everything and then leave. And it’s quick and easy! It’s kind of like picking up a prescription, in sense.”
What makes this even more convenient for a busy entrepreneur juggling six balls at once is that many Office Depot print services can be ordered and picked up on the same day – so long as you order before 2pm on that day. So even though you were taught not to procrastinate growing up, it’s still possible to hit that deadline when the clock is running down. I’m not saying you should, I’m just saying you can!
Many business owners we’ve interviewed in #Workonomy have expressed the importance of delegating and not having your hand in everything that goes through your business. Letting go of that control can be incredibly hard but can yield a higher ROI – so start with something simple. Like letting Office Depot handle your copy and print needs while you work on something more important or more fun.
“Everything’s ready to go. You just pop in, get it, and pop out. It just makes life that much more convenient for you.”
