It's in the (Face)book.

Facebook. Twitter. LinkedIn. YouTube. The list goes on and on...

Social networks and...your Business?

I really should start this with a confession, and I can't remember the last time I made a confession so here it is: I was a non-believer. What legitimate business would stoop so low to be associated with "social networks" where teeny-boppers, young adults and the occasional mothers gather in mass to trade stories and pictures from events and happenings? I apparently did not do my homework on the growing relationship between businesses and the countless social networks available today.

A social network is just that, a common place for friends and family to stay in contact and stay in the loop on what's going on in people's lives. For businesses, as is true for individuals, you want to stay in contact and keep your customers in the loop on what's going on now and in the coming days.

Millions of people are comfortable with these social networks and so these networks have become a great tool for all businesses to reach out to their customers on a common ground. It offers a great platform for customers to interact with each other as well as the business itself.

Simply Easier Payments has joined the social frontier. By making a Facebook profile, Simply Easier Payments has given other businesses and individuals a common place for the masses to interact and gain information, not only from us, but from each other.

Expecting Dedication

First of all, Happy New Year!

When you're in the business of working with people they expect your dedication and for you to meet their expectations. When you're working with people AND their money, well, you can count on those expectations to grow to unmeasurable proportions. As for your personal dedication to them, they expect to be treated like they're the only one on your list.

We couldn't agree more and we welcome your expectations.

Simply Easier Payments wants to exceed your expectations and we're starting off the New Year with our own goals. One of the things to keep in mind when you're in the business of working with people is the importance of interactions; and we want to increase our interactions with our customers.

We realize we won't meet everyone we do business with face to face, no matter how badly we would prefer that option, but what we can do is increase our interactions in other ways. The standard options of emails and phone calls are always there but Simply Easier Payments wants to take it to the next level. Therefore, we are increasing our interactions with our customers by offering numerous Webinars.

These Webinars will be an opportunity for us at Simply Easier Payments to demonstrate new features, offer insight into current features, and best of all it will be a great platform for discussions and ideas among colleagues. We want to offer these Webinars as often as once a week so keep an eye out for the email of course!

We look forward to meeting you this New Year and may 2009 be the best year yet!!
