Communicate Your Real Intentions Instead of Checking In

first_imgYou are not checking in.You are calling your prospective client to schedule a meeting to get the opportunity you were working on back on track after they missed a commitment and went dark.You are calling to schedule a meeting to have another conversation about an opportunity you believe is available to them, and one that you failed to convince them of the last time you spoke.You are on their phone line because you want to ask them for a do over when you realize that you didn’t accomplish what you needed to when you were with them an hour and a half ago.You are calling your dream client to make sure that they have no concerns that would prevent them from moving forward with you and your proposal.Maybe you are calling because you haven’t spoken in two months and you want to make sure that they are doing well and to share a new idea with them that you believe will allow them to gain some competitive advantage.You are not touching base.You are calling to ask your dream client to meet with you so you can provide them with an insight that will help them grow their business, maybe, if it makes sense.You are calling because you are concerned that too many stakeholders have been left out of the process, and you want to make sure everyone on her team will support the initiative you are working on.You are calling to ask your prospective client to become an actual client and buy what you sell from you instead of someone else.When you say you are calling to check in or touch base, you are being dishonest, even if not the worst kind of dishonesty. You have some intention when you call, and you have something that you want. You’ve tried being so soft and beating around the bush long enough to know that it isn’t effective, it doesn’t make you a peer, and you are wasting everyone’s time.Instead, get to the point. Ask for what you want, and trade your client the value they get from agreeing to it. Communicate your real intentions. Essential Reading!

Digitalisation effecting buying trends in 2018

first_imgSmartphones and Internet have drastically changed the communication patterns of people. The voice calls are largely replaced by video calls and apps such as WhatsApp have made text messaging almost obsolete. It will not be an exaggeration to say that today Internet has become the fourth essential thing after food, clothing, and shelter. As we enter the year 2018, the consumption of Internet and smartphones is set to go on the next level, where adoption of smart gadgets will be on upswing and platforms such as Netflix will change the way we access digital content. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfShift from Feature Phones to 4G Phones: The transition from feature phones to a 4G phone will continue in the year 2018. The availability of high-speed Internet at a low cost will be the major catalyst in this transition. A few companies have already created a huge disruption in this space by offering smartphones like features at an unbelievable price. These affordable 4G phones will see large scale adoption, especially in rural India.Wi-fi Enabled Devices to replace Set-top Boxes: Another major transition will be Wi-fi enabled devices replacing the traditional set-top boxes. Amazon Fire TV Stick and Airtel TV have already taken a major step in this direction and devices like Google Chromecast are expected to replace set-top boxes soon. Similarly, the Indian consumers will move from capex model to subscription model in a big way in 2018. In the subscription model, viewers will have freedom to select their preferred content on the go. Platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video are leading this space and we will see the trend changing the TV viewing patterns of Indian viewers. Though in the nascent stage, the concept of ‘pay as you use’ is gradually picking up in India and it is set to be revolutionary in terms of how we access the digital content. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveEasy Access to Digital Services: With the advent of low-cost Internet services, the consumption of digital services will spur, especially in the rural area. As the government is giving a lot of emphasis on developing the digital infrastructure in the rural parts of the country, we will see rural population accessing online services more proactively.The agriculture and education sector will be the biggest beneficiaries of this digital wave and the consumption of digital services will multiply several times in the next one year. Smart Wearables no more Class Gadgets: While phones with 4G VoLTE capabilities will have a greater impact on the day-to- day lives of the rural population, there will be growing demand for smart wearables among the urban population. Due to the growing fitness awareness among the urban population, fitness trackers and smartwatches are set to witness exponential growth in 2018. Currently, the smart wearables are majorly limited to corporate gifting, but with the buying patterns of Indian consumers changing significantly, it will soon become a mass product, which everyone can afford to buy.SSDs to be new mean of Data Storage: With the storage requirements of users going up, the storage technology will shift from traditional hard drives to a cloud and the emerging Solid-state drive (SSD) technology. SSDs are new generation back up devices, which are more reliable, long lasting and affordable. People will adopt SSDs in a bigger way due to its utility over hard drives and cloud. Similarly, smart devices such as wireless chargers will see a huge demand in 2018.last_img read more

iOS 11 Adds PeertoPeer Payments and Siri Translation and Overhauls App Store

first_img This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now June 5, 2017 Apple’s iOS 11 will give Venmo a run for its money with person-to-person payments within Messages, the company announced at WWDC today.The App Store is also getting a makeover, as is the Control Center and Notifications menu. And Siri will be doing battle against Alexa with upgrades like on-the-fly translations and a smoother voice.The Apple Pay upgrade will be integrated with Messages as an iMessages app. You can then send funds to friends, who have three options: add it to an Apple Pay cash card, which you can use to buy apps and other Apple services; send it to someone else; or withdraw it and add it to your bank account.Cupertino also promised more apps and stickers within Messages, but most notably, Messages will be stored in the cloud. Content will be synced across devices but also optimized on the device, so only the most recent messages are cached on your device, freeing up space.Siri is growing up, with a “more natural and expressive” voice, Apple says, and an upgraded user interface. If you’re traveling, meanwhile, you can speak to Siri and ask her (or him) to translate it to one of five languages: Chinese, French, German, Italian, or Spanish.Apple says Siri will also take note of your activity across the OS, displaying things of interest in news, providing a location for an appointment or assisting in making a calendar appointment. What Siri learns about you will also sync across your Apple devices.Control Center, the menu that emerges when you swipe from the bottom, is also getting consolidated. It’s a bit more cluttered than the interface in iOS 10, but things like music, which was relegated to its own screen in iOS 10, is now together with everything else for one-swipe access. Apple also teased easier-to-manage notifications and upgrades to its Photos app.If you use Apple Maps, the company talked up the improvements for drivers. A Do Not Disturb mode will help you keep your eyes on the road. If anyone texts you during your drive, Maps can send them an automatic text, telling them you’ll call or text back when you arrive at your destination. In the case of an emergency, there is the option to allow certain people to break into your drive, even with Do Not Disturb on.Though hardware isn’t usually on the agenda at WWDC, Apple revealed a new iPad Pro, which will take advantage of some powerful multi-tasking features in iOS 11. That includes drag and drop and an easier-to-use app picker menu. The slide-over menu is still there, but you can also organize your apps at the bottom of the screen, peeling off specific apps and moving them around the screen.The new iPad Pro is shipping now, but will get iOS 11 in the fall. Developers can get their hands on a beta version of iOS 11 today; a public beta is expected next month. 3 min read This story originally appeared on PCMag Enroll Now for Freelast_img read more
