Doing Business in Sandton, June 2018



Welcome to the Megaplex Business Booster Newsletter as advertised in our longstanding Newsletter: "Shopping in Sandton".  This short monthly newsletter will give you quick tips that can make your business more profitable, safer and --possibly-- more fun!

Business Tip: Would a Loyalty Programme Help? (Part 3)

Last month we introduced the Lyoness Cashback Card, which you can get for free. This card will give you discounts of up to 5% at Taste of India restaurants and major chains like Checkers, Spur, and Sorbet.  In addition you get points to use for discounts on special deals.

Before looking at how you as a merchant can use the card to reward your customers, it is a good idea to look at the card from the point of view of a customer, hence to get your own!Please register free at this link.  Fill in your details and we should be notified.

There was little response to this last month.  If too few readers seem to be interested, we don't need to say more...

On-Line Business Tip: Create a Google Account

We know Google as the most popular search engine on the planet, but Google is now much more than searches.  A lot of Google’s services are available without signing up, for example Google Search, watching YouTube, Google Books, Google Finance and Google Maps.

However, an account is needed for uploading videos to YouTube and for making edits in Google Maps, and using Gmail, Google+, Google Hangouts, Blogger and others.

Apart from the above, Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia, lists the following services from Google: Activity tracking, AdWords, AdSense, Google+, Google Drive, Google Calendar, Google Hangouts, Google Wallet, Google Groups, Google News, Google Alerts, Google Sites, Picasa, and Google Photos.

Many of them require an account.  We will introduce you to various of these in subsequent newsletters.  For now, start by creating a Google account:
