Business Communications - The Right Way To Play Well With Others

March 17, 2016
An exceptional business writing skill is very important in any type of business. Clients frequently base the company's credibility on the quality of their communications in business. These people tend to have negative view of businesses that disseminate written materials with errors or businesses that use vague phrases and misspell names.

E-mail is often the first communication that one has with a potential client or business associate. It is still very true that first impressions are the most important. If you had a meeting with someone whose clothes were dirty and torn, had messy hair and provided you with inaccurate product information, you probably wouldn't end up doing business with them. Yet, every day, this same "unkemptness" appears in radios for business.

First, make sure you're on steady footing with the What of what you send out. I've discovered that writing to cut through the clutter boils down to two words: BE THEMATIC. I start by asking myself Why am I writing this letter (or whatever)? Then, Who's reading it? And so on. By the time I'm finished, I've put every word, sentence, and paragraph through the wringer. I've examined their right to exist and their proper place communications in business the landscape of the page.

Phone Greeting. You do not need to answer your telephone each time it rings. Your telephone can be a great asset to your team. Set your voice message so it announces your business name and hours of operation. This will let callers know when you are in the office. Do not let family or friends answer your business comms with a "Hi" or "What's up".

Firstly get your computer and internet access. Now, surely to make money you must have something to sell. No products of your own to sell? Not to worry about that as well. There are numerous affiliate programs by publishers and developers and business owners wanting to get people like you and I to sell for them. In that way commissions are earned and thus benefits both parties. So, one fast start to communication technology your internet business is to get yourself a list of reliable affiliate programs to benefit from. No, do not worry if you cannot understand the technical aspect of the set up, read on, surf more, search more and the internet never fails to deliver what you are looking for.

Make it hard to throw away. At least, to throw away immediately. That's why I love to send postcards. Most of my clients, for example, live outside of Kentucky, my home state. So, I figure they'll at least remember the Kentucky Derby postcard I send them.
