Guide to Making Your Business Attractive to International Clients
Some people say that success can really make your life harder than it used to be. There is a certain theory called the Peter Principle which came from Dr Laurence Peter that states that every employee is bound to be promote if he does well in his job, but his new position will be something he is not really suited for. This is because in your previous position you can easily complete the tasks that were given to you and you have the capability to do the job. Then you are promoted to a position that gives you more responsibility and tasks which are not that easy. The new job may be more difficult but there are employees who can still excel in this and you will soon find them promoted to a higher level.
At some point in the hierarchy, you will be put in a position which is completely beyond your capability. And then you realize that you were only competent up to the previous job you had. We see here that through regular promotions, since there are no demotions in corporations, an employee can lose his effectiveness in his new role as compared to his old position. Since not all employees reach their level of incompetence at the same time, there will still be others making good and continue to make the corporation prosper. This happens only in a hierarchical type of organization but if you run your own business, you will not experience this kind of problems. In your own business, success and failure are only dependent on what you do; do well and you succeed, and do badly and you fail. Successful business owners should try their hand in venturing in international business.
Meeting business people from other parts of the world is something really exciting. First impression is very important so make sure you do good and make them recognize your abilities. To achieve that, here are some thing you need to do.
Booking a jet charter company rather than making them ride a commercial flight is the first step towards making a good first impression. It is expensive yet it is one good way of impressing them so that it will end up with a good business deal. It will then seem not expensive at all if you end up with a good business deal. Your choice of a hotel for them is also important and it should be something that will impress them and enhance your relationship rather then discourage them and hinder the relationship. Give them something that they would do for themselves if they were the ones to do it in a place familiar to them.
You need to research the kind of business guests you will be having. Some people prefer to be in the thick of things while other want a more quiet place where they can relax at the end of the day.
