Have you consumed Himalayan Pink Salt, citing health benefits due to 84 minerals in them?

Guess what, if you reside in India, here’s an interesting video by Business Insider on this

Key Highlights

→ The salt which you may have purchased for $3-$10 per kg only costs $40 per ton as a raw material 🤯
That’s a 1000x multiplier in pricing from bulk to retail

→ The salt has far more interesting uses than just eating

→ Pakistan is registering a GI tag for the product where India has been importing it in bulk and labeling it as made in India.

→ The mines in Pakistan have multi-billion tons of salt and only few hundred million tons have been excavated so far!

A quick tech tip here, but maybe I should stop writing this in the age of Short Videos!

Mac has this handy feature of scan a paper signature and insert it directly with a transparent background in any doc using it’s inbuilt Preview app.

For Microsoft’s Windows users, it’s a difficult task, juggling with installing external apps like Adobe Acrobat reader etc.

Even then inserting an image isn’t as easy as writing on a paper and scanning it because Adobe isn’t providing background removal to make it transparent

So here’s the tip

Go to a site like https://www.remove.bg/ and upload your sign paper photo and then let it magically make it a transparent image which you can use in Adobe to insert in PDF files

That’s it. What trick or tool you use for this purpose. Let me know in comments

Adding a series of blog posts on actions that make a company customer friendly

Small little actions that increase trust with consumers

Many of the leading brands have gift cards. and vouchers as part of their offerings to drive sales.

And if you have bought a GC (Gift Card) or voucher you would know the pain when it expires

Here’s what Amazon does when a Gift Card is expiring, it sends multiple notifications to remind

Not 0, not 1, Multiple spaced reminders to make sure you don’t lose your hard-earned money.

That’s why they can claim their mission to be the world’s most customer-centric company.

Wish others in the space learn and do this keeping their profit first motive aside.

Which other company/brand have seen do it perfectly like this?
