Guess that it was bound to happen

 

…Just a habit of mine.

I keep talking about why customers are happy / But forgetting ’bout what makes them whine.

Now it seems I was doing a puff job / Just an ordinary blog couldn’t do.

But I can’t turn a blind eye to what’s bugging you.

You’ve really got to hand it to me / I praised Magnetic Products Store

And just when you thought I’d gone away / I came back and then praised them some more.

I was trying to make customers happy / that’s the thing that good salespeople do.

But I can’t turn a blind eye to what’s bugging you.

 

What AM I banging on about? Those of you too young to remember Jim Croce won’t have a clue. Okay so let me put you out of your misery. Most customers are very happy. End of! But a few are not. That is to say, they love the product they purchased, but they have some small, nagging problems that spoil an otherwise perfect customer experience.

Fortunately, MPS does not take its customers for granted. And so on their website they have an entire section devoted to Troubleshooting. For example, supposing there is a problem opening the clasp? What if it keeps getting stuck? The MPS troubleshooting section has a very good HELP Page for this.

 

Fix the clasp

What more can I say. Check out the other MPS Troubleshooting pages for problems like how to remove links from regular or expanding bracelets. Oh and one more thing:

Clasps are made for opening / and for snapping shut too

And links are now made for removing / If the bracelet is large and it doesn’t fit you.

Still I hope that you can find a bracelet that suits your style and taste

If you cannot find the one you want then this entire blog is a waste.

’cause they’re trying to keep customers happy / that’s the thing all good retailers do.

And I’m sure that MPS will have the one for you.

 

A lady twisted her ankle

That sounds like the beginning of a joke.  Interesting that… how we find other people’s suffering amusing. Or maybe I’m wide of the mark here. Maybe it’s the impersonal nature of the sentence that makes it sound like the stuff of humour.

The truth of the matter is that the lady in question was a friend of mine. So perhaps I should have said “a lady friend of mine,” instead of just “a lady.” But therein lies the dilemma. What if she’s reading this article? What if she doesn’t want me to talk about our personal matters. Like the fact that she twisted her ankle. Well, maybe that’s not so personal. How about…

neoprene-anke-wrapBut therein lies the dilemma. What if she’s reading this article? What if she doesn’t want me to talk about our personal matters. Like the fact that she twisted her ankle. Well, maybe that’s not so personal. How about how she twisted it. Yes, that is personal. In fact, it’s very personal…

So perhaps I shouldn’t talk so much about the cause. Instead, maybe I’ll focus on how to avoid it.  I don’t mean be careful about skinny dipping and running naked through the woods when you hear a police siren. (Oh sorry, I said I wouldn’t mention it.) Rather what I mean is… actually, there is no way to avoid it. But when it happens, there are ways to make it heal more quickly. Like a magnetic ankle wrap.

Anyway, I have been indiscreet enough, so I think it’s time for me to sign off. I just hope the lady in question isn’t reading this…

Gold, silver and bronze

bac-72-c-emps-bronzeWe are now well and truly in the season of summer sports. Wimbledon is over, so bring on the Rio 2016 Olympics. That means sports injuries. Not so much the break you leg kind. The more the repetitive strain injury kind. One of the best ways to deal with these – and even to reduce the risk of them in the first place – is to wear a magnetic sports bracelet or wristband.

But aside from that wouldn’t you like a taste of the gold, or at least the silver. Maybe you’d even settle for the bronze. Well Magnetic Products Store has something for everyone. For the bronze there’s the vast range of copper bracelets (bronze being eight parts copper to one part tin). But what if you’re more ambitious than that? Maybe you’d like the silver?

bacs-7-wmps-510 (1) silverWell MPS has an impressive array of silver bracelets and bangles too, like the modern-looking one on the right. They also have designs that are a nod in the direction of antiquity, like the magnificent ABHAY Gothic bracelet below.

Who can gaze upon that bangle and not think about the ancient Olympic games in classical Greece during the great Helenic period?

bac-69-as-wmps-510 silverOf course in those days, they gave out laurel wreaths rather than medals. But metal is so much longer-lasting.

But what if you a true competitor and will settle for nothing less than gold? Then you will presumably only be satisfied with something like the gold-plated bangle below.

Of course, if mental games and intellectual competition are more your scene, then you might be interested in taking a survey on your game-playing habits, or check out this new game being developed, and it’s associated page on Facebook.

Indeed, the ancient Greeks used to love sport and mathematics. After all, mathematics is the sport of the mind, and sport is the mathematics of the body. But whatever your preference, remember what they say: It isn’t the winning, but the taking part!

Range wars

Guess who has the biggest range of magnetic bracelets in the world? I’ll put you out of your misery right away. The answer is Magnetic Products Store. And not only magnetic therapy bracelets. They also have magnetic necklaces, anklets, wraps, supports and sports magnets for athletes and golfers.

Swarovski royal blueFor example they have over a hundred different titanium magnetic bracelets, ranging from double strength, jet black titanium, 4-in-1 Bio elements bracelets and, of course,  titanium bracelets with those wonderful Swarowski elements.

They also have nearly fifty different copper magnetic bracelets including bangles, links bracelets, expanding bracelets and of course copper bracelets for arthritis. They also have a wonderful gemstone collection and some beautiful stainless steel bracelets.

Tarim white crystalsThe real question is, why don’t we see more magnetic bracelets on the high street? After all, there must be a market for such beautiful products. Ah yes, there certainly is. But taking it to the high street is expensive and limiting. Even one shop involves heavy start-up costs and one shop only makes the bracelets available in one area. In contrast, the internet makes those same bracelets available everywhere.

Remember that even in the online world, not everything is equal. Some magnetic bracelets are better than others. Some lines are better than others. And some vendors are better than others. Magnetic Products Store is very much top-of-the-range in terms of both quality and variety.

But what do YOU think?

My crusade for energy pendants

Energy pendants

I am on a crusade for energy pendants and I make no apologies for it. I have been in love with them for some time and so far I haven’t fallen out of love.

I don’t really know when it started. I just sort of discovered them. And I have been in love with them ever since.

They are available from magnetic products store at very reasonable prices.

 

Links removal tool from magnetic bracelets

So here’s the deal, you order a magnetic bracelet online, it arrives a few days later, you try it on and – oh bugger! it’s too big! It’s floppy and it keeps sliding over your hand and onto the floor. You were careful not to buy one that was too small, because you didn’t want it to cut off your blood circulation and now your stuck with one that’s too big instead!

That means I’m gonna have to send it back! you think.That means I’m gonna have to wait another few days!

Worse still, you think you’re going to have to pay extra…

Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!

Expanding Cobra bracelet

Expanding Cobra bracelet

At least, if you bought it from Magnetic Products Store. Because MPS includes a FREE links removal tool with every links bracelet they sell! And, of course, Magnetic Products Store provides clear instructions – with pictures – on how to use the tool, making removal of surplus links a doddle. (That means making it easy to you Yanks, Aussies and Kiwis out there!)

Of course, the problem of the wrong size bracelet only applies to links bracelets. If you buy one of the MPS range of expanding bracelets, it slips over the hand and snaps back into place over the wrist, fittings many different wrist circumferences. And, of course, it also has no fiddle or tricky clasp to contend with. I’m tempted to paraphrase Tolkien and say: One bracelet to fit them all.

Oh bugger! Oh Bilbo Bugger! I’ve just said it!

Can a bracelet get rid of arthritic pains?

brtd-23-wmpsPhrased like that in sounds like somebody is setting up the magnetic industry for a fall – or at least a challenge. After all mainstream medicine refuses to recognize it.  But some doctors are hesitantly acknowledging that magnetic bracelets may have some therapeutic effect after all – at least to the extent that they reduce pain. It is quite possible that more individual doctors would be ready to speak out in favour magnetic and copper jewellery for the treatment of chronic ailments were it not for the fact that in doing so they risk being ostracised – and worse – by their fellow physicians.

hp-5-ampsWhere then, does this leave the patient? The answer is pretty much in limbo as they have to decide for themselves whether to believe the  narrow-minded doctors or the evidence of various limited studies that suggest magnetic bracelets and other jewellery can and does reduce the pain that chronic sufferers endure. The learned medicine men – and I don’t mean the Indians – are quick to counter that it is all due to the placebo effect and the purveyors of these products are just cowboys.  But the fact is that many of these studies are double-blind and that pretty much puts the kibosh on the arguments of the doubters.
