Talked to a business owner today trying to make a sale, this is what he said when I asked if he could email me information.
Uh, I’m not too computer savvy.
My first reaction, was “Uh…ok. Can you call me back?” Not that I hate being on the phone, I still think it is more important than email messages, but when you are trying to sell me something don’t make things more difficult for me. Get on a computer, at least use email. I’m not asking you to solve a scientific equation.
My worst advice, if you own a business get computer savvy. Stop living in the past. I get that the whole technology, Google Glass, and smartphone stuff can get intimidating, especially for the older generation. But really, email?? Get with the times, if you want to continue to do business GET computer savvy. Otherwise you’ll be stuck in the past with the caveman that didn’t want to use the wheel.
I’m not asking you to be “high-tech” but at least be “low-tech” and know how to be computer savvy.
