Q&A: Talking to Sharath Bhat – a freelance advertising writer who
handles web content for AIRDA (Part II)
Sharath Bhat is a freelance advertising writer from Bangalore. He is interested in Creativity & Innovation, Content Management & Blogging, Technology & Computers. He is also fascinated by the limitless expanse of the internet, where you can share ideas across time zones – in a world without boundaries.
Sharath also handles the content for AIRDA’s websites and other components of our online presence. We’re chatting with him here, purely on the basis of the number of interviews he has done for the Q&A column on our website.
Talking to Sharath Bhat, for the second segment of this interview >
A: What customers find reassuring among AIRDA resorts is the 10-day cooling period – allowing them the breathing space to review a purchase decision. This of course comes with the option of changing your mind, with some very valid reasons.
I’ve also been told by customers that they like the idea of a common Code of Ethics shared by AIRDA member resorts. AIRDA’s Code of Ethics aims to protect the interests of the consumer on the one hand, and the developer on the other – the two sides of a coin that together drive the industry’s value proposition.
A: Prime season bookings seem to be a common concern among customers. From what I can see, this is tricky - everyone wants a slice of the most desirable vacation seasons in the year. While common logic would say “first come, first served,” I guess it’s important for the resort to provide guidelines on how you can obtain the slot you’re looking for - with a little bit of advance planning. Maybe it takes more than advance planning, but some sort of guideline would certainly help in this case.
A: Let me try and list these out as pointers, because they are not really major issues, but useful things to put on your consider list >
At the end of the day, I guess there’s merit in listening to the customer’s side of the story. He can be the prime source for information, inspiration and an insight into a world that is fast changing - in terms needs and aspirations.
That in simple words is our looking glass for the future.
