Do You Utilize the Right Technology?
Does your office seem to be a PC store? Are there VoIP telephones, PCs, PCs, huge screens and extravagant mice? Do you have an iPhone and a Blackberry? Consistently practically all that we do now elaborate technology. Choosing the right technology to take care of my business isn’t simple all of the time. Have you settled on some unacceptable decision? Have you given a client video gathering access when you were wearing a shirt with a less complimenting logo on the front?
Advancing your utilization of technology is an every thing of you needs to deal with as a person. For example I have discovered that I have a horrible momentary memory so on the off chance that I accept a call while I’m driving, there’s a decent opportunity that anything that I told someone on the telephone will be neglected or skipped. Assuming that you call me while I’m driving and request to set up an arrangement next Tuesday odds are great I will not be there.
I’ve figured out how to be fairly specific in noting calls while I’m driving thus. At the point when I truly do accept the call and the guest requests something I can’t do while driving, I request an email follow-up so I will not neglect. This technique comes from my companion R.Bob Adams. I’ve likewise discovered that it is smarter to allow someone to move to voice message and get back to them from a spot where I’m ready to help them. A large number of my clients have sorted out whether or not it’s a short thing to message me. When they realize I will get back to, they wouldn’t fret. Try not to take cover behind technology, it turns into an impediment rather than an instrument when you do.
In all actuality while we’re driving not too far off there’s tiny we can accomplish for somebody. In a most ideal situation we can respond to a straightforward inquiry. In a most dire outcome imaginable we can offer a wrong response since we have no admittance to information. You could plan an arrangement and neglect or make some other commitment that you will not make sure to satisfy. You could go with a choice in view of information you review, that wasn’t 100 percent exact when you reviewed it, allowing cash to go to the table. For each situation the occasion lead to a not exactly ideal result for your client, chief or representative.
Today it is exceptionally simple to under use or over use technology. Simply glance around at everything you can get for nothing. With an iPhone or Blackberry you can get email, instant messages, voice message, arrangement timetables and pictures pretty much anyplace, whenever. You can likewise download Skype free of charge and individuals can spring up on your PC whenever they like. There is likewise texting that can go between your PC and your cell and shared schedules that anybody can see on the Web.
While choosing the technology you will utilize ordinary, it is critical to comprehend what you do. On the off chance that you don’t have a concentration and you do everything, you will have an extremely difficult time choosing the right technology to fill your heart with joy better. In the event that this is you, I would recommend perusing something like “Thus, Presently What?” and track down your concentration. Have you at any point seen somebody with a few cells? Is this truly fundamental? For some perhaps.
On the off chance that you are an essayist, you most likely need some kind of voice recording instrument or simple to utilize notice cushion on your wireless. This way you can record thoughts surprisingly you. I utilize my “undertakings list” to add thoughts. On the off chance that you are a salesman, you’ll require some kind of schedule and a few specialized techniques, for example, email, phone and message informing. Everybody needs to choose a technology that works for themselves and be mindful of abusing technology.
Since time is the main thing we can’t supplant or make a greater amount of, technology turns into a basic device in making our time more useful. A call telling a client you’re running five minutes late could save the gathering. A call telling the seller you’re running five minutes late could inspire them to remain behind and save you an excursion to their workplaces the following morning. All that we do with technology is tied in with saving time. Indeed, even this article is tied in with saving time. This article is a solitary place where I can communicate thoughts, and a solitary place where anybody can peruse these thoughts.
Simply ponder how we imparted before the Web. To convey a bulletin to each of my clients that implied I needed to compose it, print it and mail it. I know since we did it that way for more than 10 years. Presently I can post to my blog or website and send a connection out over email in no time. The test presently is to ensure I don’t over-burden my clients and wind up burning through of both within recent memory, or prompt them to block out.
As you go out into the world this week, adhere to your concentration and utilize all of the technology accessible to you as well as could be expected, without allowing the technology to dominate. Toward the day’s end your clients are relying upon you, and you are liable for the time being spent well, not your technology.
