How a father share 17 camels with his 3 sons? ~ Business Wisdom

14 Feb
A father left 17 camels as an asset for his three sons.
When the father passed away, his sons opened up the will.
The will of the father stated that the eldest son should get half of 17 camels,
The middle son should be given 1/3rd of 17 camels,
Youngest son should be given 1/9th of the 17 Camels,
As it is not possible to divide 17 into half or 17 by 3 or 17 by 9, the sons started to fight with each other.
So, they decided to go to a wise man.
What did the wise man do?
The wise man, after giving this thought, brought one camel of his own and added the same to 17. That increased the total to 18 camels.
Now, he started reading the father’s will.
So he gave 9 camels
to the eldest son.
1/3rd of 18 = 6.
So he gave 6 camels
to the middle son.
1/9th of 18 = 2.
So he gave 2 camels
to the youngest son.
Now add this up:
9 + 6 + 2 = 17 &
This leaves 1 camel,
which the wise man took back.
#MORAL: The attitude of #Negotiation & #ProblemSolving is to find the 18th camel i.e. the #CommonGround. Once a person is able to find the common ground, the issue is resolved. It is difficult at times.
However, to reach a #solution, the first step is to believe that there is a solution. If we think that there is no solution, we won’t be able to reach any!
A very interesting management lesson

有如上文提到,客户数额(Existing Customer)x 重复交易量(Repeat Order) x 交易数额(Average Spending)=营业额(Revenue) ,是一项商家们都必须明白的营销方程式。


相信你也会有相关的经验,你到某咖啡馆或发廊消费,首次光顾都会获得对方的会员卡一张。每一次的消费都会获得一个盖章。获得越多或超过10个盖章以上,就会得到 一杯免费的咖啡或免费理发一次。



这就对了,麦当劳就是要令你觉得“值得”。麦当劳将3种不同的产品组合成一个优惠价套餐来卖你,让你觉得值得而多加消费。而你决定买下套餐后,麦当劳的专员并没有停止向你销售,反而会问你,是否还要多加1令吉(Add On )来加码你的套餐呢?


当然,增加营业额的策略最好是三管齐下,如果你的客户数额 x 重复交易量x交易数额都能够各自增长10%,那么你就会有意想不到的33%增加率。加油吧!
