If you run a business, you need high-quality, dependable employees who you can rely on to get the job done. It’s not easy finding good help, especially with niche positions that require specific skills. When you have a position open, you could let the talent come to you – or you can actively seek it out through recruiting.
The space that you spend 8 (or more) hours of the day should inspire you to do your best while making you feel mentally calm and alert. Yet how many of us have settled for less than the ideal when it comes to our office, cubicle, or open workspace?
Written content is a tried-and-true way to help your target audience get to know your brand. But when seeing is believing, video content can enhance your ability to convince potential customers even more.
We’ve all been there: struggling with an automated service to the point of severe frustration until this option comes up—speak to a representative. Whether trying to sort something out online or over an automated phone call, everything tends to become easier when we speak to another human being. When we get in touch with an actual representative either over a call or video conference, we gain the luxury of explaining ourselves, our problems, and our concerns in a way that only works with face-to-face communication.
A decision-making meeting is exactly what it sounds like: the purpose of the meeting is to come out with a decision after thoughtful discussion. There is more than one way for a decision to be made. The leader of the meeting might be the ultimate decision-maker regardless of what others in the room think. There might be a vote taken and the majority rules. Another method, consensus decision-making, involves getting members of the group to agree to support a decision in the best interest of the whole.
There was once a time when being far apart was an inconvenience to business. In order to work with someone, you’d have to travel long distances or pay a lot of money for long-distance phone calls. It could be such a drag that many people avoided it altogether and focused just on local business, limiting their potential for growth.
When it comes to different forms of media, your title is everything. It is the first thing people will see and it determines whether or not they will explore your article, video, or in this case, webinar, further. Even if you’ve got something interesting or highly important to say, a dull title is likely to repel customer interest. Luckily, you can turn this all around by learning to create engaging webinar titles that will grab and hold public attention effortlessly.
Meetings are an opportunity for individuals to come together as a team for group discussion, decision-making, and debriefing. They’re far from easy: disagreements and confusion can occur, and some meetings can be long and tedious. Whether the meeting is in-person or virtual, it is up to the meeting leader or facilitator to make it as pleasant as possible for attendees, which will in turn make meeting participants more effective at achieving goals.
Virtual assistants are new breed of secretaries that are changing the way people do business. Most of them are contractors or freelancers who do work as needed or for a set number of part-time hours each week. They’re helping entrepreneurs, business owners and independent consultants get hours of their workweek back and make their businesses more efficient. Videoconferencing has made hiring and managing virtual assistants extremely easy.
When you have important information to relay to a classroom, in a meeting, to your boss, or your customers, you want to do it in such a way that it grabs the attention of your audience. This can already be difficult when holding a presentation in person, but what about when holding a webinar?
