Remember when I posted a blog entry all about Globe’s awesome GCASH American Express® Virtual Pay? Did you finally get your own account? You should if you haven’t yet.
I’ve been making awesome purchases online ever since I was introduced to this wonderful method of payment. In fact, my own US iTunes account is linked to my very own GCASH American Express® Virtual Pay. That way, I can easily buy apps and music for my iPhone 5 on the App Store.
Globe launched the My Fair Share eco-bag in 2012 which supported the livelihood of women communities who produced them. The eco-bags, made from recycled and bio-degradable materials, promoted conscientious consumerism among Globe employees, subscribers, and stakeholders. “My Fair Share eco-bags not only supported fair trade and enriched the lives of marginalized communities, but it also reinforced the advocacy of caring for our environment by using less plastic,” shared Rob I.

Not only is competition stiff… sometimes, one network will opt to use dirty tactics and black propaganda to lure customers from the rival network. But do these tactics really work? From what I gather (and based on experience)… no matter how much BS you put out to hype up your own service, people aren’t fooled too easily – they actually see through all the lies and deception. Customers have finally learned to be more discerning.
I’d like to thank everyone who went out of their way and made time to attend my Globe Lifestyle Training Talk on Parenting earlier today despite the scorching temperatures lately.
I hope you guys enjoyed listening to me talk as much as I enjoyed sharing my knowledge with all of you. It was really fun!

I have another talk (the last of my 3 parenting talks for Globe) next month. I will keep you guys posted on the exact day and time. You can follow me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to know when the next talk will be… or if you just want to say hi!
It seems that Globe Tattoo has been lording it over its competitors quite consistently and convincingly as well.
According to the latest count, Globe Telecom bared broadband revenues of P2.4 billion for the fourth quarter of last year, bringing total revenues to P8.7 billion – a huge 16 percent increase that accounted for the record-breaking P82.7 billion revenues last year of the Ayala-SingTel telecom combine.
