I’ve discovered the most fascinating website.
It’s a joy to shop at. Their sales copy is hypnotic. Their product is heavenly. And their service is unforgettable. I’m talking about www.zchocolat.com out of France.
I first bought their product as a surprise gift for Nerissa. I did a search for chocolate and their site came up. I loved how easy the site was to navigate. Too many sites are confusing. You get there and wonder, “What do I do next?” or “Where’s the product I want?” or “How do I order, anyway?”
Not with zchocolat. Their site is a breeze. Intuitive and easy. I instantly ordered a wooden box full of homemade gourmet chocolate.
After I ordered, the company in France emailed me a confirmation. Confirmation emails are not unusual.
But zchocolat didn’t stop there.
They emailed me when the order shipped.
Then when it cleared customs.
Then when it was out for delivery.
And then when it was actually delivered and signed for by Nerissa.
I can still remember looking down at my Blackberry 7290 and seeing an email from zchocolat just moments after Nerissa received the package. This is unforgettable service.
But the company has their marketing down, as well.
About two weeks after Nerissa received her chocolate, zchocolat sent me an email suggesting I reorder, since the candy was by now gone. They included a link, which took me directly to an already completed order form. All I had to do was hit click.
And I did.
If you want to model a site, do it with www.zchocolat.com Everything they do seems right on target to me.
I just today received a printed snail mail catalog from the company (which prompted me to write this post). In it they mention being picked by Forbes as a “Forbes Favorite” and also declared “Best of the Web.”
I’m not surprised.
I just wish I could eat their product.
After losing 80 pounds, I don’t want to step off my fitness path with candy, even if it is probably the most luxurious, heavenly and best tasting on the entire planet.
But oh, am I ever tempted.
