There is no doubt that the impact of technology on people’s lives has been more than extraordinary. Not even techno gurus could have seen it coming. For example, IBM scoffed at Bill Gates’ idea about developing personal computers, as did Steve Jobs’ cohorts – insisting that no one would ever want a computer. It is stunning when you think about it. Because today, not only do more households than ever have computers, but they walk around with them as cell phones and numerous other devices, as well.
The benefits of technology are so far reaching that it is not possible to capsulize them adequately. Businesses today rely so heavily on them that a company can be shut down for hours, days and even for the duration from a simple failure in technology.
When it comes to attracting business, marketers have been using the Internet for decades to accomplish all manner of marketing techniques. It is also successfully used to engage prospects and keep clients interested. However, while those methods work very well – savvy marketers and business owners know that it is a blend of techniques that grows and maintains business success.
For example, successful companies do not expect to earn all of their revenue simply by having an online presence. In fact, many of the more prominent firms started out or mainly get their business from traditional sources. Even Internet businesses rely upon social interaction, even if a lot of it is online. In order for these businesses to take their companies to the next level, they need to incorporate traditional business acumen, advertising, and marketing. With each level of business growth comes a new marketing requirement.
One of the most effective ways to grow business is by enhancing essential personal relationships. Beyond social networks, people need to get together in person to make their relationships really relevant. Just as with online dating romance, two people need to get together eventually – or the whole thing is a sham.
Realizing how challenging it can be to arrange meetings at either a client’s business or your own – a great way to get together is in a meeting space that is calm, well designed and always accessible. Just like a first date – you want to make the environment conducive to get the results you want — a worthwhile experience that can form trust for the future.
