I appreciate you getting back to me.
Just a Traveling Man
This is an old post, but I wanted to put in my two cents. My day job is in International Sales. I have traveled all over the world as part of this job. Last year, I was responsible for sales in 38 countries, and was required to travel to those countries weekly. Its not easy keeping up with your phone messages and emails, especially when traveling to Asia (big time difference) - BUT the technology does exist, and if you can commit to great customer service, you can still run your business even though you are out of the country, on a big project, or traveling.
Part of my arsenal = iPad for quick access to emails, FaceBook, and LinkedIN, iPhone for voicemails and emails AND instant messaging/twitter. Laptop for design work, presentations, documents (such as contracts). This is my portable office and keeps me in touch with the world even when visiting Mings Tombs in Nanjing!
Vendors - again this is not easy (I am a vendor and I know how hard it is) but to be successful in today's "I need to know now" business world, its essential to keeping happy customers!
'bout time someone explains to the vendors that this technology DOES exist! EVERY business is tough these days & things do happen but if you do commit to being service oriented than there are products available to help you be extremely efficient at it. But as you deal with vendors & read post on here you can see a pattern develop with the vendors who just don't give a rats ass about customer service...and they know who they are! Well I for one don't give a rats ass if you sell props, tv's or life insurance...the businesses who ultimately prosper & succeed are the ones who tend to the little things...like communication!
Thank you Dark Raven
I wanted to post a Thank You to Dark Raven Designs. Once our communication was ironed out, they did exactly what they said they were going to do. The props were delivered on time and they are absolutely amazing. Thanks again
