Sexy chatting on skype
After I got off the phone to my client it occurred to me that something very important had just happened. I could have kicked myself at all the wasted hours.
So when the blog got turned off I ended up with nothing. I had previously built a website for them and we were discussing a new blog that they were desperate to get me on board with. I had content plans, product ideas and website design drafts to show them.
Maybe it is a Gen-Y thing but given a choice between a phone call and a text message, I’d much rather send a quick SMS. Nor the people who want to collaborate with you on big new projects.
And given a choice between an SMS and an email I’d rather send the email. Sure, it’s nice for us to stay in our pyjamas all day and talk to our clients and potential clients by email instead of meeting up for a coffee. Or the people who might want to buy your expensive product.
And I can’t help but wonder whether part of the missing ingredient for a lot of us is the human connection. Hopefully by now you’ll be thinking that maybe creating a face to face connection is a good idea. It was a huge step for me as I’d built up a lot of brand equity as the Blog Tyrant and was pretty concerned that the “buzz” on my blog would die off after I opened up. Blog Tyrant was going really well for me but when Glen asked me to join the Viper Chill team I knew that things would really take off.
It’s a simple fact of business that you can get a lot more done when you team up with people who believe in and want to achieve the same things as you.
