Paulina says; I wonder if Ghana's about to see a big PR/marketing drive from Voltic Ghana as their competitors up-their-game[see past post]????
Whatever the appointment of Philip Redman as General Manager means --as Fela Kuti [I think] said, -water doesn't have enemies.....and we all love good clean water -don't we???
Still.........I wonder if these bottle water companies in Ghana make provisions to collect said plastic bottles back ----
Anywaysss, Ghana Rising will be watching what this appointment means for the *clean* bottle water industry in Ghana...
Will this be the beginning's of a water war? I guess, we'll have to wait and see... For more info visit: http://www.volticghana.com/
P.s I've had to fight for the contact info as it pertains to Voltic Water Ghana -this morning!!! To be honest, I tend to leave stories where I can't find contact information!!!!
The thing is...........I'm no longer shocked when I can't find contact details for businesses in Ghana ---as most businesses are below par, lacking imagination and are content to sell only to their family and friends (sooo ordinary, soo true). But for a mega [professional] company like Voltic Water Ghana, or is it Voltic Natural Mineral Water, or Voltic Water Limited, or Water Voltic or whatever -to not have it website (its under construction) or its *real/official* Facebook fan page not pop-up first in any search engine --is unacceptable. Thus, I'm guessing that's why Philip Redman has been promoted to General Manager ------well, he has his work cut out!!!!!
Still ----if he reads my aforementioned comments -----he'll know to start with their website and FB page.
Note, I stumbled across two other Voltic Facebook fan pages before I came across their real authentic FB fan page -can you imagine??????????
If I was a customer looking to buy **real*** fresh bottled water in Ghana -I would have given up and gone to their competitor or like Accra's most fashionable are now doing, --shipping in artisan water --you know the ones...................
Anyway, they better be grateful that ***Kwasia-for-Ghana-number-one*** has enlightened the world with their real contact details.... Maybe they can start by sending my daddy [EL, Accra] a batch of their best (laughter)...
