Sending SMS online is one of the quickest and easiest ways for businesses to exploit the power of SMS and can bring huge benefits. You should be mindful of the key features to look out for in a reliable SMS tool. In recent years, the use of sending Business SMS has grown at a rapid rate, primarily as it allows businesses communicate effectively and at low cost. Sending SMS via the Web as opposed to sending SMS via your mobile phone makes sense for many reasons. The key benefit is that it’s very quick, so it should be your communication tool of choice when sending SMS to groups. With most Web-based SMS applications, you can upload multiple contacts in one go (often from a csv file), type your SMS message and hit send – saving you lots of time.

Email is another effective visual form of business communication. If you find that you’re making several points in the email, consider the impact of the recipient seeing them in separate emails with unique subject lines. It will also help you keep track of separate issues as well as make it easy for the people you are sending to see them at a glance.

Remember, your communication systems are important. They will be your backbone, for without the proper Business communication skills devices, your company will suffer. Also pay close attention to how you manage phone calls and record notes about conversations. Do you have a phone program that may manage calls throughout the day? Do you have a separate voicemail number for small business messages, or do you divert calls to your private voicemail? Create email accounts for your staff, and make a decision on the main communication strategies that you might use for your team.

Finally, be human: You build a relationship by face to face contact and sharing personal experiences with another person. And if they accept you and they share experiences with you, a friendship has been born. And isn’t that what a good communicator does, reaches out, shows he or she is human, shares a painful experience with you?

How to Identify a Highly “Visual” Person

Somewhere between 40%-55% of people have there primary learning style based on visual sensory input. Some studies have revealed 40%, some 50% and others up to 55%. The important point here is that this represents on average every second person you encounter.

So … what specifically is important to them?

People that greatly depend on visual information typically place a high level of importance on what they see and what things look like. They will take notice your new glasses, new clothes or your latest hair cut. These are the people who really do form long lasting first impressions at first sight. They are very good spellers and memorize by seeing pictures. They can often maintain focus even when there are potentially distracting noises around them.

Often they learn by looking at the world through visual images and understand by making pictures of the meaning. They are often gazing over your head or off to one side; this is because they are literally looking at the pictures or movies they are creating while you are speaking.

They need to see the presenter’s body language and facial expression to fully understand the content of the discussion and tend to prefer sitting as close as possible to the presenter to avoid visual obstructions. They may learn best from visual displays including: diagrams, illustrations, PowerPoint slide shows, videos, flipcharts and hand-outs.  During a meeting or discussion, visual learners often prefer to take detailed notes to absorb the information by seeing it on paper.

The key here is to be the observer (yes … it’s your turn to go visual). If you pick up on the visual learner’s non-verbal commnication, you have the opportunity to work with it and communicate with them in a way that engages and gets win-win results.
