Alternative Personal Notes

I am a HUGE fan of the per­sonal, hand­writ­ten note.  I believe that the time taken for any note that is hand­writ­ten shows the recip­i­ent how impor­tant they are.  While my opin­ion hasn’t changed, I have found a ser­vice that I may use to replace some of my typed and hand­writ­ten notes.

How Do Your Customers FEEL?

I read a great book last week.  I know it is great when I read the first few chap­ters and then pull out a pen and begin under­lin­ing entire sec­tions.  This book took almost an entire pen!  There were so many great ideas, I decided to share many of them with you over the next few weeks.  This arti­cle dis­cusses cus­tomers and how they feel about you.  » Read more about How Do Your Cus­tomers FEEL? »

Branding - Who Are You?

David Knoble, CPA, PLLC

David Kno­ble, CPA, PLLC

A brand is cer­tainly who you are, but do you know who you are?  As a busi­ness of course!  It is easy to come up with a busi­ness strat­egy to gain more mar­ket share, gen­er­ate more cus­tomers, make more money, etc.  But how much of any of these strate­gies do you actu­ally pub­lish for the pub­lic to see?  My guess is ‘none’.  Here we dis­cuss a lit­tle about try­ing to fig­ure out who you are and how to brand that con­cept for the pub­lic.  » Read more about Brand­ing — Who Are You? »

OpenOffice Mail Merge Wizard Prints Blank Pages??

OpenOf­fice is a soft­ware pack­age for the new busi­ness because it is free!  It also reads and writes Microsoft© Office doc­u­ments.  How­ever, some­times a lit­tle bug is harder to solve.  Here we have found the solu­tion to remov­ing the blank page that prints in-between each let­ter when cre­at­ing form let­ters with the Mail Merge Wiz­ard.  After com­plet­ing a mail merge using the wiz­ard found in the Tools -> Mail Merge Wiz­ard menu, you have a doc­u­ment con­tain­ing each let­ter.  On screen the let­ters look like they are one page after another.  Using the print pre­view, how­ever, gives a more dis­tress­ing sight — a blank page in between each let­ter.  Here’s the fix to remove them.  » Read more about OpenOf­fice Mail Merge Wiz­ard Prints Blank Pages?? »

Using LinkedIn for Networking

LinkedIn Icon

LinkedIn con­tin­ues to be the new craze of social net­work­ing, but with a unique twist.  LinkedIn is the first to require approval before some­one can link to your pro­file.  Addi­tion­ally, your pro­file includes your edu­ca­tion, work his­tory, ref­er­ences, links to your web site — in short a com­plete resume about who you are.  The ques­tion is:  how do you use LinkedIn to really begin net­work­ing?  » Read more about Using LinkedIn for Networking »

Charlotte, NC Networking Opportunities

As a mem­ber of the LinkedIn com­mu­nity and of the Char­lotte Busi­ness Pro­fes­sion­als group on LinkedIn, I wanted to tell you about a great Char­lotte area net­work­ing group that has been enhanced once again.  The Char­lotte Busi­ness Pro­fes­sion­als have cre­ated a web site that com­ple­ments and con­nects to LinkedIn.  More impor­tantly, the goal is … → Read More: Char­lotte, NC Net­work­ing Opportunities

Networking Strategies

Net­works are strings of wires that con­nect com­put­ers to talk.  Net­work­ing is face-to-face com­mu­ni­ca­tion that con­nects peo­ple.  The key dif­fer­ence is that while there is more com­mu­ni­ca­tion being done on net­works and the inter­net than ever before, Net­working is still a face-to-face busi­ness. Sure, leads can be devel­oped online and you can even gen­er­ate prospects from the inter­net, but true cus­tomer gen­er­a­tion is done in a meet­ing where peo­ple can read body­lan­guage and trade information.

Cus­tomer Fly­pa­per is a new blog I found that has tremen­dous infor­ma­tion on net­work­ing and cus­tomer skills.  If your busi­ness depends on peo­ple, as does mine, you need to spend time look­ing at this blog.  » Read more about Net­work­ing Strategies »
