I love Facebook for a bunch of different reasons.
I love it because I can connect with friends and family who live so far from Manila.
I also love it because I can find things that might interest me that are close to home…this is actually true for all of social media. I remember when I first joined twitter. My whole world opened up and I suddenly felt so much smarter because all I had to do was search a topic with a hashtag and I could find a ton of current pieces or opinions on that particular topic to read up on.
So the beauty of Facebook works like this: if your friend “likes” a page, and you subscribe to that person’s updates, you will see what she “likes.” So, when my teacher friend (who used to work at the kids’ school previously) “liked” Neat Nanny, I was intrigued.
When I visited their Facebook page, I browsed the pics and saw that Diane, (the mompreneur behind the brand) put some thought into the designs. I liked the different happy colors and the simple patterns that she incorporated into the clean and yes, in fact, NEAT designs for the Nannies who will don her uniforms.
I like the fact that the uniforms are not so expensive. I feel like when I do buy uniforms I buy and then the helpers are not really happy with what I choose. I find if I involve them by letting them choose the style, they are usually much more apt to wear it, and feel good in it. We all know that we feel better in something when we really like it.
Diane can also put together different kits based on your yaya’s needs. You just have to ask and she can ship it directly to your door. I appreciate the thought and process that a mompreneur follows. She is usually very practical, creating a business that comes from her own need or the needs of her children. And because SHE has that need, she knows that other moms have the same needs as well.
After my girls wore their uniforms, I asked for their feedback. They both really liked the colors and said that they would like me to order more. Perfect! Win-Win. Everyone’s happy and everyone looks “Neat.”
