Avoid Awkward Moments with Smarty's Accurate DataGuy awkwardly spilling coffee
March 18, 2024

March 18 marks a bit of an awkward holiday: Awkward Moments Day. It's a day that celebrates those times that make you cringe, moments that make you face-palm, and stories that wake you up at 4 in the morning thinking, "Ugh! Why did I do that?" Although these moments can be uncomfortable, it's helpful to remember that everyone has them, and if they say they don't … We know they’re lying. 

It's also helpful to remember that these embarrassing stories can help us learn and do better the next time around. While nothing we can do will ever prevent us from these awkward moments, here at Smarty, we can pass along a helpful tip that can save you embarrassment at work and in business.

Picture this - A carefully planned marketing campaign is ready to launch, targeting hundreds, if not thousands, of potential customers. The brochures are eye-catching, the message is compelling, and everyone is excited. But there's a snag. You’re dealing with inaccurate, or outdated address data and a significant portion of the mail returns undelivered. 

This results in wasted time on behalf of you and your team This snag also leads to wasted money and resources. Having someone walk up to your desk every day handing off a stack of returned mail can be embarrassing.

Similarly, picture a delivery service confidently heading out to deliver a parcel, only to find that the address is incomplete, incorrect, simply doesn't exist, or requires the delivery service to have to hunt for the correct address, if it's even there. We’ve all been on the receiving end of that scenario. 

We keep checking our porch because they said the package would be there yesterday, but it still isn't here! How annoying! how frustrating! The resulting phone calls, anxiety, and awkward apologies are best avoided.

These scenarios aren't just hypothetical. In a world where packages are sent worldwide constantly, the quality of your address data can significantly impact your business's efficiency, reputation, and bottom line. Bad address data doesn't just lead to operational inefficiencies and financial losses; it can also result in awkward and embarrassing moments for your employees and brand.

This Awkward Moments Day, let Smarty help you by ensuring crazy fast and crazy accurate address data. When we say crazy fast, we mean CRAZY FAST. Investing in reliable address validation and data management solutions can help avoid these uncomfortable situations. Not only do our solutions ensure your communications and deliveries reach their intended destinations, but they also safeguard your business from the potential awkwardness of bad data.

International Be Kind to Lawyers Day

Lawyers get a bad rap. Lawyers have been around for a long time, and when you're this old, you're bound to collect your fair share of good and bad. It's true, ask your grandpa. We've got records of people described as "lawyers" going back to ancient Greece, Rome, and the Byzantines. These first individuals were folks who were asked to speak for the accused because those under scrutiny were—understandably so—shaken up by the situation. It went from someone who was your friend and did you a favor by speaking on your behalf to someone who knew all of the laws, and you'd hire them to speak eloquently for you.
