Giving Thanks – For You.

I wanted to take the opportunity this week to send out a sincere “thanks” to all of our readers. Light Reading is our effort to provide useful information about lighting, and every time we see a comment on a post or a share on Facebook/Twitter, we know we’ve done something right.

Thank you for being a reader here. Remember that you can always suggest a blog topic if you’d like. I absolutely love hearing feedback from readers.

From all of us at Pegasus Lighting – Have a very happy & safe Thanksgiving!

 

Challenge: See the World in A Greener Light

Have you ever purchased a CFL? Recycled an aluminum can? Turned off the water while you brush your teeth?

We’re all familiar with basic sustainability guidelines, but when it comes to just how much of a difference one person can make, things get murky.

We’d like to start a dialogue about seeing the world in a greener light. We want to hear your ideas – even if they’re not related to lighting at all. Do you set your thermostat a few degrees lower in the winter? Are you a designer that recommends eco-friendly products to clients? Tweet your answers and ideas to #agreenerlight. Here’s one of ours:

We launched a new section of our website dedicated to the A Greener Light cause. If you’re not on Twitter, you can leave a comment there!

Here’s a thought for the day:

In the lighting industry, adoption of fluorescent and LED technologies is rapidly growing in the United States. That’s good news, considering that the U.S. is responsible for 20% of electricity used for lighting in the world – even though we only make up about 4.5% of the global population. Fluorescent and LED light sources are both great solutions for lowering energy consumption and CO2 emissions.

The “Secret Shoppers” Have Spoken

At Pegasus Lighting, we strive for a level of excellence that our president has coined “Outstanding Customer Service That You Won’t Soon Forget.” In an age where online review sites and social media networks hold customer service departments to very high standards, it’s a tall order to be unforgettable!

However, we were recently contacted by STELLAService, an independent company that rates online stores’ customer service performances.

STELLAService’s secret shoppers engaged in over a dozen interactions with our customer service representatives through phone, email, and live chat. They essentially stress-tested our customer service department. Read More

You Asked For It … New “Product Spotlight” Videos

Have you ever shopped for a (lighting) product online and thought, “I wish I could see it a little more closely,” or “Why doesn’t this picture show the mounting equipment/light bulbs/power switch/fill in the blank…

So have we.

Light Reading is more than just a cool place to read about lighting news, trends, and tips (or at least, we like to think so).

It’s an extension of Pegasus Lighting’s corporate mission to provide a positive learning experience in lighting – and part of that includes creating an easy and informative shopping experience on our main website.

About a month ago, we asked our Facebook fans if it would be helpful to start shooting videos of our products for the website. That way, even if a product has ten photos, you can watch a video accompaniment to see every single angle and feature of the light fixture. After hearing positive feedback, we have launched our first three “Product Spotlight” videos. Read More

Looking for DIY Lighting Project Help?

We are all about answering your lighting questions. It’s the reason why we have knowledgeable customer service reps answering every phone call, why we make sure our website is packed with helpful information, and why we write this blog.

It’s also why we just launched a brand-new section of our website for DIY lighting help.  “Project Know-How” will now be your one-stop-shop for blog posts, photos, videos, and FAQs to guide you through any lighting installation.

Before, all that information was scattered across various sections of the website and blog. We’re hoping this more organized page will enable you to plan, complete, and show off all your lighting projects.

Check it out, and be sure to tell us what you think!
