It’s getting to a stage where it is just plain ridiculous. Your website has no information, no email, no phone. Not even an About Us page, so that I could track the owner down on Facebook. Your Business Facebook page has no email, no phone, no address. So, I ask, how do I contact you?
How hard is it to make sure you have an email, phone and/or an address readily available online? I even tried the White Pages! Don’t get me started on contact us forms.
Useless contact us forms that no replies to, great. When did building barriers to business become the way to do business? If you don’t want to be a business then do get a website that has no address, no phone number and any calls that do miraculously make it through are blocked at reception. Please take the time to check your website, your email signature, your business cards, everything. And if you do have your contact details, great! Just don’t forget to pick up the phone.

Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Officer asked a young engineer fresh out of university “So what starting salary are you looking for?” The engineer replied, “In the region of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package.” The interviewer asks, “Well, what would you say to a package of five weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50 percent of salary, and a company car leased every two years, say, a red Corvette?” The engineer jumps up and says “Wow! Are you kidding?!” The interviewer replies, “Yeah, but you started it.”
