Ready For Now?

new internet meets old businessThere’ll be a time soon when mobile devices, cellphones, iPads, etc. will use new cloud-based apps to do everything from turn-by-turn navigation, voice-actuated texting, networked CRM, and much, much more. Bandwidth and connectivity are moving towards the same kind of utility as energy: increasingly less costly, more widely available and (pardon the pun) fueling innovation, business and relationship online.

Businesses seeking to stay abreast of this shift, as well as embrace and employ it, must either incorporate it in-house with employees who are engaging with this technology, or use the services of outside consultants fluent in it and able to help integrate these systems into the workplace.

Tell Your Story

There’s a story behind your product or service. Tell it.

Once, I worked as a Termite Inspector (no, I didn’t inspect termites, just houses) and the owner of the company had worked in that industry for someone else for several years before striking out on his own. Besides the usual reasons for doing so, like “self-determination” and more opportunity, he’d told me how mercenary and self-serving his former employer was towards customers. He didn’t speak fondly of those days in the trenches spent learning the trade.

So when starting his own business, he vowed to put his customers first. His business philosophy didn’t come from sales training or a graduate school MBA program, but from putting boots on the ground.
His advertisements say “full refund if not 100% satisfied” and he tells his customers the story how and why he came to value them. They can relate and so give him their business.
