We live in a very digital age and so the days of having to meet staff and clients face-to-face are long gone and we now use modern technology to provide us with our communication needs. Many people still continue to be old school and so they prefer the more personal approach where you meet someone in person and you discuss business with them then. This is not conducive to modern business practices however and this is certainly not a constructive use of your time and energy. There have been many important deals done via digital and remote communication and it will continue to be this way into the future.
You could use Enterprise Audio to provide you with all of your audio visual and video conferencing needs and you connect to get to see the faces of customers and staff face-to-face using the technology that we currently have at our disposal. This just isn’t the only way to communicate with customers and staff and the following are just some of the top ways to communicate remotely.
- Pick up the phone – It seems pretty obvious but because many of us are spoilt for choice when it comes to alternative communication methods that we forget about the one thing that we’ve been using for generations. The voice call might be made on a smartphone but we do make a phone call nevertheless and this can connect us with anyone, anywhere in the country. It may be such a simple method and yet it is effective only want to communicate our thoughts and ideas to someone else.
- Using social media – If your business doesn’t currently have a social media presence then you’re missing out on something truly wonderful when it comes to communicating with not only your staff with your prospective customers as well. There are so many social media platforms to choose from and all of them are free to use. It offers you the perfect opportunity to communicate with people and to get answers in real time either by face time or by a message.
- Chat to them live – This is when audio visual and video conferencing becomes very invaluable because you can talk to people in real time and this allows the conversation to be a lot more productive and it takes away a lot of the ambiguity. You can see each other face-to-face and you can figure out the facial expressions with regards to whether they are happy or not also that you are making. You can also have team chats where everyone can be involved and if there are those that are too busy at that time, they can continue on with their work while still listening in.
Customer and employee communication never really has to suffer because of the many outlets and we have to be able to communicate with each other nowadays. You can use the above three methods as well as many others to actively engage with people no matter where they are in the country or indeed the world.
