Do You Lead an e-Life?
Posted on May 17th 2014
Not sure? What are you doing on line? Do you date, apply for a job, stay in touch with your friends and family, shop, bank, gossip, have arguments… vent? If you do, you are living an e-life. This convenient lifestyle comes with e-friends, e-business partners, e-customers, e-family and everything else that “e” has to offer.
Is your e-mail contact information stored on a neatly developed spreadsheet, including a contact name, company name and a title? If you are half as bad as most of the small businesses nowadays, your e-life contacts are lost somewhere between your cell phone, e-mail inbox (received once upon a time), old printed files and the good old rolodex.
If this sounds familiar, you are in big trouble. You are about to make the “e-rror” of the century. E-communication is taking over your business just like it took over our lives. Developing and organizing your customer e-database will organize your e-life.
Put aside some time in your day to gather and organize your e-contacts. Sort them into easy to find categories and have it handy. Remember, everything about to happen to your e-life in years to come will depend on how fast and "e-fficient" you are.
