What do I mean by using professional email? I mean use the email that introduces your company. e.g. 1 ‘ Mapambo Gemstone’ your email should be; # firstname.lastname@example.org
e.g. 2 # email@example.com
# firstname.lastname@example.org The e.g 2 is not professional email in the international business.
You can use yahoo.com or gmail.com for personal use but not for company website or business cards, or brochures or flyers. Email which has the company name that introduces the company, is very crucial in this “information age”.
Remember here I am trying to list down the thing required to maximize your sales at Arusha Gem Fair. In our time it is important to have a website that help advertizing your business across the globe. The advantage of the website is that, anytime and anywhere, someone can visit the website and see what gemstones you have in stock or on sales. That is during the show and after the show.
The use of social networks such as “WhatsApp” is important because it costs you nothing more than the internet access and smartphone or laptop. You can make millions of dollars by using “WhatsApp, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter and Wechat”.
In the gem business, you must have business cards. This wil help a customer to get access to the company contacts at ease, such as phone numbers, email address, company website. This will be good in the international business and make you professional.
Use mobile phone number not landline number The advantage of mobile phone is accessible especially after office hours, customers can reach you at any particular hour of the day from any part of the world. While the landline can be use for fax and other usage during office hours. Remember mobile phone should be on air 24/7.
