Business is still about building relationships and always will be. One of the purposes of technology should be to “enhance” relationships and not “replace” them. I’m concerned that a new generation has been raised in an environment where face-to-face has been replaced. I see my teenage kids have fewer reasons to “get out” to be with friends because they can just hop online and there are hundreds of “so-called” friends. I am sure my 15 year old daughter has hundreds of facebook friends and yet I’ve only seen less than a dozen ever cross the threshold of my front door. It’s affecting business now too. Less is being done face-to-face and technology is being created to “replace” people – who needs a sales team if you can sell on the internet to the whole world? I believe that true success will come to those that build and nurture relationships. Nerchur is technology that “enhances” relationships.
Writing this post reminded me of a great commercial.
