Yes, our website is ‘getphix.com’, and we do not sell weed.
It might sound absurd to some that I’m even clarifying this, but scrolling through @getphix’s Instagram followers was even more absurd for me.
When I first began working in the company, the over-800 Instagram followers had me impressed. Such a significant figure for a practically new start-up? Definitely impressive.
Then I started scrolling through those followers, and it was obvious that some of them had only become followers because they had a completely different idea about what we did.
I jumped onto Google to check what it had to say about us. Typing ‘phix’ in the search bar, my colleagues and I were pleasantly surprised to see our website as the seventh suggestion on the first page itself. After all, being one of Google’s top 10 suggestions is no small achievement, especially for a young start-up.
The only damper on our spirits was the small fact that the first six suggestions were all about vaping and weed.
And that was the last push I needed to get in front of my laptop and furiously clack away at my keyboard, because this message needs to get out there – and it needs to get out now.
Whether you’re one of our few kick-seeking Instagram followers or just the innocent reader who chanced upon this article, you need to know this: MARIJUANA IS ILLEGAL; PHIX SG IS NOT.
The way we Phix you up is genuinely intended to and targeted at simplifying and bettering your lives in a 100% legal, fast and easy way.
Welcome to our humble abode, where we help connect customers and service providers offering over 300 services. With one-half of our aim being to serve as a safe haven to providers, Phix proudly hosts a wide range of both white and blue-collar services, from housecleaning to tutoring.
New services are constantly being added, and this way, we complete the second half of our aim by providing our customers on-demand, custom-made quick fixes.
Phix has always been about the community. I can tell you first-hand how true that is; the efforts we take on a daily basis to communicate with as many existing and potential members of the Phix family as possible are never-ending.
We move forward with the goal of constantly trying to reach out to as many people as we can so that we can help them to the best of our abilities. You could be a freelancer looking for an avenue to make more income, or a customer needing a service; our doors are always wide open for you.
Legal, safe, simple, even healthy: these are not the words used to describe weed, but Phix SG. It still boggles me that a provision this good can simply be downloaded on a phone in a matter of mere seconds.
With that, my passionate speech-making has come to an end, and I would like to thank you for your attention. Once again, we are Phix SG, and we do not sell weed.
