We've all heard it said that the one constant in life is change. Dropping this bit of philosophy into conversations over the years usually elicits a head shake from the listener which assures you that you are right and provides a momentary feeling of personal satisfaction. It's one thing to be a pseudo philosopher and quite another to live out the truth of your wisdom. All of us, it seems, are learning first hand what it looks and feels like to be in the middle of the constant of change.
As we examine our own business in comparison to what it looked like over the past several years, the change is dramatic. On the positive side, we anticipated a lot of the shift coming and made plans that are now paying dividends. On the negative side, some things got bad so quickly we wonder how we could have seen them coming. Because we provide a service that every business in the world needs and uses every day, we have the opportunity to speak with business owners in every industry including manufacturing, health care, real estate, automotive, finance and marketing. Not surprisingly, those who are optimistic seem to be embracing the opportunity that change presents.
Are you embracing the change? We decided that we will and hope you and your business will do the same. While some revenue streams are dying a slow death, we are seeing opportunities to grow our business with new solutions that help our business customers. Some of these solutions don't appear anything like what we offered a few years ago and some don't even look like Telecommunications. But they do offer solutions to help your business survive and perhaps thrive during this current environment of change and uncertainty.
When the dust settles, and it always has, consumers will want to do business with companies who have perservered during the hard times. As an example, the experience and wisdom of a stock broker or financial planner who weathered the market plunge of 1986 provides a level of comfort that a new broker cannot match.
In order to survive and thrive, we all need customers; and more of them are looking for you on the Internet. We can help them find you through a new relationship we have forged with Network Solutions, one of the pioneers in shaping the Internet business. Local Search Visibility gets your company listed with more than 100 online local search engines like Google, Yahoo! and the Yellow Pages for less tan $400 per year.
Meanwhile, on the traditional Telecommunications front, carriers are providing you more choices than ever before. We recently replaced two very old phone systems with a brand new IP capable PBX and reworked the monthly service. The net effect was an overall SAVINGS on the monthly expense with increased bandwidth and state of the art technology on the desk of every employee. These companies embraced change and are better prepared to survive and thrive.
Deciding to join them is the first step. Embrace The Change!
Welcome to the newly designed Universal Telecommunications website. Our desire is to provide our customers and potential customers with a simple to use resource for the latest telecommunications strategies. The key word is simple. The technology has to work and make your business more productive. Just because it is new and cool doesn't mean you have to adopt it today.
Our economy went through a financial crisis in which a lot of people signed contracts for products or services they didn't understand. Don't let the same thing happen to your telecommunications. Ask questions and if you don't get good answers, move on. There is very little that CANNOT be done with technology today, so the proper solution is out there for you.
Keep it simple. Ask questions. Good advice in any economy.
