I was readin through the forum and I found several different conversations where people were arguing back and forth. It was funny because neither side was understandin what the other folks was sayin. It got me to wonderin how these folks was makin any money online cause you got to be speakin the language of your customer.
If you cain't converse with folks on THEIR terms, you ain't gonna make many sales! THEY are the ones with the money. THEY are the ones you are wantin to sell to. THEY are the ones who need to be understandin you. If you cain't be communicatin with your clients you ain't gonna be doin very well with your business.
It sorta reminds me of Homer Thadpucker tryin to buy hisself a computer. He called one a them high fangled computer stores on the phone and... well, let me just show you how that conversating went...
Salesperson: Superior Computers! How may I help you?
Homer: Wellsir, you can be helpin me get a computer.
Homer: No sir... may name is Homer!
Salesperson: Okay Homer, would you like a Mac?
Homer: No sir, I ain't hungry right now and we ain't even gots a McDonalds here in the holler!
Salesperson: No, I am talking about your computer.
Homer: I ain't got no computer. That's why I am callin you!
Salesperson: Okay, let me try this a little differently... would you like a computer with Windows?
Homer: Why in tarnation would I want to see inside a computer? I guess it would be okay if the computer has windows but what would I be seein in the windows?
Salesperson: Well, you would probably be seeing Wallpaper.
Homer: If there is wallpaper on the windows, how would I be seein anything. That just don't make any sense! Look, I just need a computer and some a that software stuff.
Salesperson: So you need software for Windows?
Homer: NO... I need software for my dadgum computer! I have a business what makes shine... ummm, I mean arthritis elixir... and I need the software to be able to do all kinds of stuff.
Salesperson: Okay, how about Office for Windows?
Homer: Well, I already gots me an office and it already has windows. I just need some software stuff for my new computer that is gonna be in my office.
Homer: Yes, can you recommend something for my office?
Salesperson: I just did!
Homer: You just did WHAT?
Salesperson: I just recommended Office for your computer!
Homer: LOOK... I just told you that I done had an office and all I want is a computer to go in the dadburn thing! Okay, say I want to just type up some letters or somethin like that. What would you recommend?
Salesperson: Word for Office!
Homer: A word for office would be "place of business" but I don't want to be playin this game. I am tryin to buy a computer! Let me try this once again... what would you recommend for me to keep track of my profits?
Homer: Well of COURSE we are talkin bout money. This here ain't no barter and trade business!
Salesperson: No, I mean that your computer comes bundled with Money!
Homer: Whooo weeee! NOW we are talkin! You mean to tell me that my new computer will come bundled with money?
Salesperson: Absolutely! It comes with one copy.
Homer: Well now, I can see you and I are in the same business. I have been known to be makin some copies of money ever now and then.
Salesperson: Microsoft has given us a license to copy Money.
Homer: How do I get one of them there licenses?
Salesperson: You just buy a computer from us.
Homer: Okay!!! Now we are getting somewhere cause that there is what I want to do. Now, I want you to sell me a computer!
Let me be sayin it again... if you can't communicate with your customers at their level, you ain't gonna get nowhere!
