Weddings are one of the happiest times in a couples life. And couples take great pride arranging transportation for their family and friends. Here is more…

It’s a celebration of two people coming together as one.

It’s also one of the few events in our lives where we get all our friends an family get together in one place.

Sometimes it just a handful of people.

Other times it can be in the hundreds.

Here in the West the size of your wedding is not that important.

But in East it can be a totally different story.

Asian countries have a lot of cultural pressures we don’t have here.

Take Korea for example.

Korea has a cultural obsession with image – and a pressure to impress.

Psychology professors say Koreans feel compelled to achieve an image of perfection.

What has become known as “face inflation”.

Where people create a perfect image of themselves and then must live up to it.

As a result, in order to save face, couples make sure they have a completely full church at their weddings.

That’s why there’s a booming industry in Korea where Koreans can rent guests for their weddings.

And about 70% of the clients are brides who feel self conscious about having fewer guests then the groom.

That’s because in Korea the number of guests you have is taken as a sign of a family’s power.

Often, brides never tell the groom they have hired guests (and vice-versa).

So naturally the number of people who attend the wedding is quite large.

Here in the West large weddings are also quite common.

And the biggest problem with having this many people show up at your wedding is transportation from one location to the next.

From the hotel where guests are staying to the church.

From the church to the reception.

Moving a large number of people can be a quite a problem

That’s where a company like Abba Limousine Service can save the day.

With our beautiful Coach Buses, we can transport your group, no matter what size, to their destination.

One afternoon in Beverly Hills a Rolls Royce made a stop on Rodeo Drive.

A woman stepped out of the car.

And was instantly swarmed by a mob of paparazzi.

Camera flashes went off.

Voices everywhere were yelling questions like…

“When’s you next movie coming out?”

“Can you sign an autograph?”

The spectacle was amazing.

Tour Buses and cars slowed down.

Pedestrians passing by started whipping out their smart phones to take videos and snapshots of their own.

Everyone who witnessed the event thought Ellen must have been a celebrity.

Only she wasn’t.

Ellen was just an ordinary woman.

Who paid to have a celebrity experience.

The experience included a Rolls Royce, a crowd of fans, VIP treatment at stores, champagne, paparazzi and souvenir photographs.

She had hired a company that specializes in pop up crowds and paparazzi.

Their specialty is the ability to “cultivate perceptions” or what we would call the illusion of success.

In business, the perception people have of your company is everything.

Good perceptions lead to higher profits.

Bad perceptions can bring about utter ruin.

So it’s important that everything you do reflects well on you.

Especially if you have any type of corporate events that require transporting people from one location to another.

If you make everyone get there on their own you could be perceived as being cheap and uncaring.

But if you hire a beautiful coach buses you’ll be perceived much more favorably.

inter coach bus

With coach buses you can guarantee everyone will arrive all at once, on time and in comfort.

And if you want to have a pop up crowd with paparazzi waiting for them when the moment they step off of the coach bus you can do that too.

Imagine how memorable THAT would be to your group.

It would be something they would NEVER forget and re-tell to their friends about for years to come.

It’s a powerful way to take up permanent real estate in the minds of your customers!

Once the US Postal Service sent out a message to all their carriers.

The message said they were supposed to put a sheet of Bounce (yes the famous dryer sheet) in their uniform pockets.

Why?

Because the dryer sheet has the ability to keep yellow jackets away.

Interesting right?

Well after doing a little digging, we found some other things Bounce can do for you…

  • If you play golf then you can hang a sheet out of your back pocket to keep bees and wasps away
  • You can chase ants away when you lay a sheet near them
  • It also repels mice – just put them in all the areas where they lurk/enter
  • It takes the odor out of books and albums that never get looked at
  • It repels mosquitoes. Tie a sheet in your belt loop when you’re outdoors
  • Prevent musty suitcases. Place an individual sheet of Bounce inside empty luggage before storing
  • Put a Bounce sheet in your sleeping bag and tent before folding and storing them away – it keeps them smelling fresh
  • Put one in your suitcase when you put it away to prevent any musty smell from forming

For a simple dryer sheet it’s pretty useful.

Don’t take our word for it, here is what a few of our customers have said on Google Reviews...

Great company to do business with. We used them for our homecoming group. The driver was professional and very dependable. He went out of his way to make sure everyone was comfortable and all would have a great experience which they did. Thanks Sam for making this special night special!

Here’s another…

I have used ABBA for corporate transportation on many occasions for my upper management team members coming from all over the world. We are 2+ hour drive from Houston and ABBA Limos has always been professional, punctual and always exceeded expectations of all of our travelers.
We have been using ABBA for the past 4 years and never had any sort of issue for any reason…which is why we will continue to use them for many years to come.

So next time you have a group in Houston you need to move from one place to another…

…be sure and call Abba Limousine Service so we can send one of our magic shuttle buses to pick you up and transport you and your group in style and comfort!

If you’ve never hired a shuttle bus  to move your group to a new venue…

…you’re kind of asking asking for trouble.

Especially when it comes to corporate events.

Whether you need to move your employees or your customers to a new location, the actual experience of being transported will reflect back on you.

Calling for a bunch of taxi’s may sound easy, but it has it’s drawbacks.

Like not knowing if the driver really is trustworthy.

Take for example the story of this woman who said…

“I took a taxi ride with my friends. As we were getting out, I paid the taxi driver. With a grin, he drove away fast. It turns out my friend had already paid”

Or this one..

“I rode in the cab on the way back to my dorm from the airport. The taxi driver was on the phone and not really paying attention. I paid him and got out of the cab, but he drove away before I could get my luggage out of the trunk”

Or how about this…

“I called a taxi after a night of partying. When it arrived, I realized I had no cash, so I told the driver I’d quickly grab some from an ATM. He made me leave my phone with him as collateral in case I was pulling a prank. He drove off the moment I turned my back”

See what I mean?

Everyone who has ever been in taxi has a story to tell about them.

And the last thing you want is to risk exposing any of your customers to that kind of experience.

That’s why hiring a shuttle bus makes much more sense.

Check out these advantages

  • You can schedule and pre-pay for a shuttle bus service so you don’t have to worry about it.
  • You don’t have to reimburse your group for taxi fees
  • You don’t have to inconvenience your group by making them pay

When it comes to having a great night out fun with your friends two things are important.

The place you go to.

And how you get there.

Lets talk about places first.

If you want a night that rivals what happened in the movie “The Hangover”, picking the right place can make all the difference.

So going to your regular hangout is a no go.

Instead you have to find someplace really cool.

A place totally different than you’re used to.

Maybe a place like the “Chillout”.

Chillout Bar

The Chillout is the Middle East’s first ice lounge.

Pretty much everything in that restaurant is sculpted out of ice.

You will sit on either on an ice bench or an ice chair.

Eat at an ice table.

Eat off of an ice plate.

And drink from an ice glass served from a bar made of ice.

The $17 cover charge gets you one drink and the rental of a hooded parka, woolen gloves and insulated shoes.

If the thought of this place is too chilling even on a scorching hot Houston summer day, maybe you’d like Red Sea Star Bar better.

Red-sea-star-bar

Submerged under 20 feet of water, The Red Sea Star Bar is the world’s very first underwater bar and restaurant.

Every table has two windows.

One on the side and one above.

The views are amazing with your attention getting torn between the sea creatures and colorful coral garden outside…

… and the marine inspired furnishings like the jellyfish stools and anemone lighting fixtures.

And if that’s not strange enough for you and your gang, then how about heading over to the “Skeleton Bar”?

skeleton-bar

Designed by Hans Rudi Giger who worked as a designer on the Alien movies, the Skeleton Bar in Swtizerland has got to be one of the wierdest designs ever for a bar.

Ok I admit it.

We don’t have anything quite like those bars here in Houston.

How awesome would it be if we did?

Now the thing about Houston is it’s a huge city.

And with a population close to 2.2 million people, you better believe we have some cool places to party.

And when you find a place like that, you want to get there in style.

That’s why our Party Bus in Houston Texas will help make your night a “Hangover” worthy event.

Your party can get started when you leave your house not when you get there.

You’ll have room for up to 30 friends.

Hummer int

A killer sound system and light show.

(shhh…we even have a dance pole).

Ice cold drinks.

A driver who will take care of everything so that all you and your friends need to do is have fun.

So next time you want to celebrate something.

Forget the house party.

Forget the average boring wateringholes.

Hop on the our party bus and let us take you to the funkiest places you can find in Houston.

On February 2010 something simply remarkable happened.

Two women – Aga & Iza – originally from Poland, met by chance in the United States.

Barely knowing each other, these two women made a decision most people would never even consider.

They decided to drop everything, take their entire life savings and travel the world together.

2.5 years, 33 countries and 209 different beds later, they had set foot on all seven continents.

And the whole adventure was captured on their blog.

Through both the written word and the lens of a camera. It the complete Odyssey of two girls (who call themselves the Hot Toddies) that took them…

“From jungle treks to cave exploration; from eating local delicacies to biting live fat larvae; it’s the good, it’s the bad, it’s the scary and unfamiliar, it’s the embarrassing and yet incredibly rewarding side of living our nomadic lives of world domination”

Now this kind of adventure the The Hot Toddies’ experienced may not be something you may ever be able to do.

But.

Inside you lives the Spirit of Adventure.

A Spirit that just wants to bust loose and escape all those job commitments, family responsibilities, and boring life-sucking parts of your life.

To be able to jump out and experience amazing new sights & sounds you never have before.

At least for a little while.

You may not be able to escape for 2.5 years.

Or even a week.

But you COULD escape for a night. limo-services-bachelor-party-2

A night where you and your girlfriends all get together and experience some of the craziest, wildest, hottest spots this town has to offer.

A night where one of our Party Buses brings you to any or all of these exotic spots in style.

A night where you can have an adventure that rivals anything that happened to the guys on the movie “The Hangover”. ESC INT

Imagine…

Getting into a Party Bus with room up to 30 girls.

With a dance pole.

Killer sound system and light show.

Ice cold drinks.

A driver who will take care of everything so that all you and your girlfriends need to do is have fun.

It’s all there waiting for you.

All you have to do is grab it.

So…

…this Saturday night.

Are you going to sit in front of the TV again watching other people live exciting lives?

Or would you rather jump on our party Bus and have a night you’ll talk about for years?

Go on.

Kick that regular life of yours to the curb for a night and go out on an exciting Abba Limousine Party Bus adventure instead!

Can a limousine service help increase the productivity of your employees?

Check it out.

A study funded by Make Their Day, an employee motivation firm, surveyed 1,200 U.S. employees from a broad cross-section of industries.

What they found was…

– 83% of people said recognition for what they did at work was more fulfilling than any rewards or gifts;

– 76% found peer praise very or extremely motivating;

– 88% found praise from managers very or extremely motivating;

– 90% said a “fun work environment” was very or extremely motivating.

The researchers concluded…

“Workers of all ages, especially the rising Millennial population, are motivated by real-time feedback, fun, engaging work environments, and status-based recognition over tangible rewards.”

In other words, people are more motivated by recognition than by money.

And a motivated employee is a much more productive.

They’re a lot happier with significantly less sick time.

And ultimately they earn your company more money.

How you make your employees feel has a direct impact on your bottom line.

And no one knows this better than San Joaquin Gardens, a continuing care retirement community in Fresno, Calif.

Once they started giving out candy bars and $100 bills, employee turnover dropped 6%.

They were surprised at how little it took to increase the morale of their employees.

The company names an Employee of the Month from among staff who have been nominated by residents or residents’ family members. Every nominee earns a candy bar. The one who becomes Employee of the Month is given a prime parking spot for a month and an extra $100. Once a year, the monthly winners vie for the Star of the Year award, which reaps the victor $500 and a limousine ride to a black-tie banquet.

Now that’s a pretty good start.

Here are some other ideas that companies are using…

A “celebrity for the day” contest where the winning employee gets the full celeb treatment, complete with limousine service, paparazzi, and glamour photos.

Linoln town car

A Limo Lottery, where the winning employee gets dropped off to work and picked up again by a limo for a week.

These are all great ideas but the point to remember is this.

A limousine is all about grace, beauty and style.

In a world of jeans and yoga pants, grace, style and beauty are a rare occurrence.

And things that are rare tend to be very valuable.

So it is with limousines.

But they are best used to compliment the main prize rather than being the prize itself.

Kind of like the icing on the cake instead of the cake itself.

The main prize should be something of high perceived value.

Like tickets to a sold out rock concert.

Traveling there by limousine just takes the whole experience to an entirely new level.

How?

Because half the fun of the concert will be the journey to the event.

They don’t have to drive their car and fight traffic to get to there.

Or pay for parking.

Or walk 6 blocks away to save on parking fees.

Nope.

Instead they can enjoy a completely stress free ride with cold champagne on ice to the concert.

And a comfortable trip back home without having to deal with the mass exodus of cars and people after it’s over.

In fact, the longer they are stuck in traffic, the more time they get to spend enjoying themselves in the back of the limousine.

You just cannot lose when you make a limousine ride part of whatever main prize your offer.

Even if it’s a trip to Hawaii or Disneyland.

Nobody wants to ask their friends for a ride to the airport.

So a limo ride both to the airport and then back home again ALWAYS makes an impression!

Try it with your employees see for yourself how much they love it.

And if you’re in Texas be sure to call ABBA Limousine Service in Houston cause we know how make your employees feel like royalty.

There once was a mighty torrent of water flowing at the bottom of a deep mountain chasm.

At the top of the chasm, a tree had fallen forming a bridge uniting the two sides.

However the fallen tree was so narrow two squirrels would not have been able to pass by each other.

Now one morning two goats came to cross the tree bridge at the same time, one from each end.

The goats met at half way mark but neither would budge to let the other go by.

Instead they struggled with each other trying to push the other back until…

…both ended up falling into the roaring torrent below.

This story illustrates perfectly what happens when two evenly matched opponents meet each other.

Neither one tends wins and it usually ends up in a tie.

The same is true for you and your competitors.

You are all reaching for the same target audience.

Going after the same market-share.

But because you and your competitors tend to market more or less the same way…

…you are evenly matched so neither of you gain any ground.

Until, that is, you begin to do things differently.

Take for example how you find new clients.

You can either spend all your time, energy and money advertising and marketing to attract new clients.

Or.

You can tap into companies who already HAVE your ideal clients.

I’m talking about companies that share the same type of client but in a non competitive way.

Like how landscapers and house painters both have homeowners as their customer – but they don’t compete.

They each can refer clients to each other and both will substantially gain in the joint venture.

The opportunities for you to establish joint ventures are numerous.

However.

If you are looking to gain a more affluent client base you need to consider the companies that already have them.

There is none better than those of limousine company.

busy businesswoman with laptop l

Those who can afford a limousine service can easily afford to spend money on your business.

Tapping into this affluent client base has the ability to change forever the profitability of your business.

And have your competitors scratching their heads wondering how you get such high end clients.

Now not all small businesses are suited for joint ventures with limousine companies.

Fast food restaurants, thrift stores and used car dealerships are some examples that come to mind.

But if your company has the potential to serve the affluent then approaching a limousine service will be worth the effort.

Just keep in mind that when you do approach them, you will need to bring something  valuable to the table.

You need to think about things from their point of view – what’s in it for them?

You need to think about how your company can do even more for them than they do for you.

Because once you have that answered, your joint venture will become completely irresistible.

And allow you to tap into the kind of clients you could only dream about.

If you’re in Texas, remember that ABBA Limousine Service in Houston serves some of the most affluent clients in the country.
