A Few foreign visitors put shoe repairs or key cutting at the top of their shopping list so, to answer your question, I spoke to someone with first-hand tourist trade experience: Anya Hindmarch, founder of the eponymous handbag fashion leader, who has shops in Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Bond Street, Pont Street and Sloane Street (and many overseas). She gave me plenty of tips on how to give great service to international shoppers. "Let every customer shop the way that they want," Anya told me.
A Although you probably think that the closure plan is a close secret, don't be surprised if many of your colleagues are expecting the news. Even so, the reality will come as a big shock. It's important to break the news in the right way and at the right time. Once the closure has been decided, make the announcement as soon as you can.
Q I’m having to wind down my firm and lay off the team – have you got any advice on breaking the news to employees, as well as what to offer or do extra? I’m thinking of setting up some seminars on finding new work to soften the blow, but could that be met with anger? A Although you probably think that the closure plan is a close secret, don’t be surprised if many of your colleagues are expecting the news. Even so, the reality will come as a big shock.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
