Communicating Like Children
As business owners we must constantly strive to make our customers happy and
at times even attempt to alter their mood. If we could tap in to the ability little
children seem to be born with it would certainly help. Little Children seem to
have the innate ability to make us feel good. What is it about these little
bundles of joy that can alter a mood or bring about a smile? Is it their
innocence, their simple direct communication, or does it have something to do
with the fact that they are so trusting? Whatever it is, it works!
If child like innocence is the
key most of us are long since past the time where we can tap into that virtue.
It seems the most likely reason that little children can put us in a pleasant
mood is the fact that they are so trusting and direct. Do we trust our customers
as much as a small child trusts most adults? We probably don’t, but why not?
These are people that help us build our businesses, feed our families and plan
for our futures. A cynical society has taught us to be skeptical, even of those
who are on our side.
What about direct communication? This seems to be
what we all strive for; some even go to seminars to learn how to communicate
more directly. No one communicates more directly than a small child. Now I am
not suggesting that we all revert to monosyllabic sentences, but if we took a
little time to learn from our tiny counterparts we would see that direct
communication is not hard to accomplish.
Marketing our website is a
prime example of where direct communication can be put to use. With people from
diverse geographic areas and even diverse languages visiting our websites it is
even more important that our communication be direct and concise. The simplest
way to accomplish this is to avoid hype, exaggeration, and anything that could
be construed as misleading. Add to that a trust that our customers are
reasonable people that want to be informed about our products and services and
we are well on our way to achieving youthful communication.
Tiny USB Drives
We all seem to use flash drives to
move data from one device to another. How often could you have used a flash
drive but didn't have one with you?
CustomUSB offers a
product called Gigs 2 Go, a small "Tear-and Share" flash drive pack. The credit
card sized flash drive pack is an easy way to keep a flash drive handy at all
times. Each pack has four drives molded together.
There are different
size four packs like the 4GB (1GB each), 32GB (8GB each) and the 64GB
(16GB each) pack. The package is made up of 100% recycled paper pulp and
will fit in your wallet.
When you need portable memory you tear off
a drive and use it like any other flash drive. Once you have loaded your files
you can even label the drive by writing directly on the paper pulp exterior.
The drives claim to be rugged, shock proof and water proof. And no cap is
needed on the drive. They can even be customized with your own logo and your
data can be preloaded on to each drive.

Isn't it funny how about half of the time advice starts with someone
saying never, always or don't.
