Lajo releases exo2mini-sb for iPod mini

Lajo has released a new version of the exo2mini-sb which features no mounting post on the back to attach a belt clip. “And because it does not have the metal implant to support SWVclip the savings from the chrome plate brass implant means a $2.50 reduction in the cost of the case and the savings are being passed onto you.” The soon to be released TwistClip allows you to wear it in both a vertical and horizontal position along with six other positions.  Exo2mini-sb costs $17.50 plus $5 shipping to anywhere in the world in 3 colors with more colors promised before the end of this week.

Does this seem to be a bad way to sell business? Releasing so many products without even giving the detail of the differences between all the products. I say this because the lajo website is not user friendly at all. There are so many things to choose but there is no page dedicated to each product telling the visitors what makes the product the one that fits their need.

Almost every item (in the product section) has a “features page”.  Some do not, however almost all do.  It gives you enough information about the product to know what the differences are.

Next to the “magnifying glass” there’s an upside down exclamation point.  Click there for features page.

I fix my statement.  His site has a feature page for some of his products.  Not all, and not even most.  :)  Oh well, that will be coming soon I’m sure.

Buy at your own risk. It has been 3 weeks since my order “shipped” and it has never arrived. Never any replies to my emails about missing order. Glad I had PayPal get my money back for me.

Colango:
Please go to lajos site and click on contact us, you will be asked to logon with your order id and e-mail address, do so, then once logged in, click on report a problem, Lajo will get back to you within a day. He’s good for it. Hong Kong Airmail is horrible, hopefully he will ship you a replacement via DHL.

Math Question of the day:

Which is larger,
the number of products that Lajo sells
or
the number of people who have ordered them and not received them

I just hired another commerical artist to help get all the feature pages up. Soon I will have a feature page for exomini cases which will give you all of the features for the 7 new cases. Now I have 5 styles of exomini cases with many colors in stock and exomini-fb and exoflpmini-fb will be released soon. Now that you have seen exo2mini-fb you know the fb stands for a flat back and a saving of $2.50 from the cases that support SWVclip cases without

Lajo is famous for being long on style, low on substance.  His 2 for 1 Easter sale (notice the irony) was misleading.  Most of his colors are still not in stock, a week after Easter, and you can’t buy 1 ice exo case, and 1 indigo color case, for example, of the same exo style.  To get 2 for 1, your second case has to be the same color!  I tried this multiple times, still with the same result.  The vast majority who want to take advatnage of a 2 for 1 deal would want a second case in a different color.  The other problem I have is that since his the majority of his products are out of stock chronically, you order thinking you’re getting a 2 for 1, but then the second product NEVER comes, so you end up paying full price for one case.  There’s no order notification that the out of stock product is in stock, and they want to charge you shipping all over again.  Even after I told them to hold my cases until they were all in stock.  So I feel that the 2 for 1 specials are very, very shady deals.  My one ice color case did arrive, though, I must report.  But it took so long that when it did, I had forgotten all about it :>

And, the website is full of vapor ware and redundant links and is truly the most confusing website I’ve ever personally visited.  Think of how many sites we’ve all visited before, and his is #1 hands down the most confusing.  You’re only as good as your reputation, and if his company had online ratings, they’d probably be near 0.5/5 stars. 

There’s always going to be people who keep him in business, but buyer be very aware.  Surely not ALL of us who bother to write in on these boards are wrong in what we claim.

Looks Good, are you mad? I ordered myself from that sale and got completely different colors of the products I chose.

And they arrived today.

I too suffered from his false advertsing, lack of customer support and shady emails that leave you scratching your head. I never did receive my order, now months ago.. I just wrote it off. I’ve heard a lot of bad things about companies in China and Lajo is one of them. Good luck peeps the con is on.

I agree with some of what you write about the 2 for 1. Let me tell you what you can get from my program 2 for 1 and what will happen in the near future. Currently in a 2 for 1 (Bonus computer function) you can get any colors you want but it has to be in the same style. In the near future you will be able to mix and match. Example if you bought and exo and wanted TwistClip we would be able to direct the bonus program to recognize that and not limit it to one but to multiple styles; example exo could have a bonus for TwistClip, SWVclip, exo2, exo3, exoflp etc etc. If you program you know that this is no small feature because the system has to look at each line on the order form and then match it to the bonus items. It is easier when it is limited to order of 10 and under but our bonus are offered to resellers and distributors that may put 1000 + items on their order form. Remember I am doing this in a country were I am the outsider and I have been able to break the language barrier, find people to program and understand my business plan and build an expanding business with my own factory. My line has grow from 1 item and 2 people to 500+ items and 35 people and growing.  Now I have online customer service and online instant application for want to be resellers and distributors so that I can plug them into all of the monthly specials so they can pass them onto you the customers.  I am just getting ready for the major push of this company and the back end of it is being set up to handle it.

Once again for those that have a problem with their order go online and logon with your order id and your email and you will get a solution to your problem. Sorry if you had to suffer but I am doing my best to manage the increase interest in my business and vital pieces are being plugged in to make it a pleasant experience for you and for us.

You people who keep complaining and complaining with each comment in Lajo’s news bits.

If you have a problem, why don’t you go to his website and get it resolved with the new customer service?  It works.  Trust me on this.

If you just want to continue to whine and complain then I can’t stop you, but your looking pretty ignorant when you can obviously get the problem resolved through either Lajo’s forums or his new customer service portion of his site (brand new function which allows a MUCH easier method of dealing with problems).

So in my mind, either get it resolved through the aforementioned methods, or just stop whining.

JBF,
In all of the order confirmations, etc I have ever received form Lajo, never once was it stated that I had to visit his “Forums” to resolve issues. Every one clearly stated to respond to a stated email address with my order number and it would be resolved. I was simply following his instructions. If posting on his forums page is his preferred method of correspondence, it shoiuld be stated in his Order Confirmations. I have tried to work within the system he created, not mine. I just want new customers to be aware of these issues or else they will suffer the same fate as most of us. Some of the people in this forum have complaints months old. For you to tell them to “stop whining and use the new customer service part of his site” is ignorant and foolish. Lajo has not address their problems in months. They have sent emails, like instructed, and have had no response. Now, like a miracle, he has a new Customer Service feature in his site and we are all supposed forgive and forget. Forget it! Until I start seeing glowing posts here in these forums, I will never order from him again.

“lajo make your webpage compatible with mozilla.”

I second that.

“lajo fix your error prone site, please.”

I second that too.

The funny thing is, I have never come by a seller who has annyoed me before I even got to buy their products. Cuz what’s annoying me is that his site is so dysfunctional and mini cases are still all out of stock, been waiting for the last 6 weeks…

Since my customer service was uploaded a day ago problems are get resolved quickly. One of the most important features is that no one can post multiple complaints on the same order id and no one can request information in the online problem section. This has resulted 30 times less postings in one day. This month my customer service will have more features added to the admin side which will help that much more.

Now want to be reseller and distributors go directly to an application and once they have their password they will have an online method to communicate.

Customers go to the forum for information and soon a Q&A will be added to support that along with online customer service for info.

Problems are reported by logging on with your order id, there is no other way.

Now lets deal with your situation, if you want to get your problem resolved and you have an order id then follow the instructions, if you don

Sorry I did not mean to ignore your post.
I will have my programmer look at mozilla.
If there are problems on the site then post them in my forum under website and it will be read by my chief programmer. I want to the site to work to be fast and friendly too.

I have ordered four cases from Lajo. I have had no problems!
I would like to order more cases, but how many can 1 person have!

My personal opinion is that he is one of the best people to do business with on the internet, bar none!
It seems every week he is offering a new or more refined product.
Anybody who asks about my cases I tell them that Lajo is the one and only place to get your iPod case.

Thanks Lajo!
You are the BEST!

I love my exo3 cases, I want more. The second two took longer to arrive, but they did arrive within the 5-10 days promised. Lajo seems to spend a lot of time communicating with customers and listening.

But the website *is* lousy, and no, it doesn’t work in Netscape. I, personally, could do a lot better. But whatever. I’m tired of people trying to insinuate that his products are crummy and the customer service poor. You want bad customer service? Try Mediacom Cable.
