Guide to Making Your Business Attractive to International Clients
It is said that when one has achieved success, one’s life would be more difficult. 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. Now you are placed in a higher position where the responsibility is more than the previous one and the tasks are not that easy to do. Still, you may do well in this new position and you will continue to impress your boss and your name is nominated for promotion once again.
At some point in the hierarchy, you will be put in a position which is completely beyond your capability. Your level of competence, you will soon find out, was only up to the last position that you held. There is no demotion in corporations but sometimes people who get promoted to certain positions will soon find themselves getting less effective as compared to the positions they held before. Although this may be true, the corporation still continue to do well since there are still other employees who are still doing well in their positions and have not yet reached their level of incompetence. Running your own business is different since there is no hierarchy to speak of. If you are not able to do things well, you will expect your business to suffer. International business is one area where successful business owners should venture.
It is exciting to meet with business people from other parts of the world. What you need to do is give them the best first impression and make them see your abilities. Here are some thing you need to organize to achieve that.
Booking a jet charter company rather than making them ride a commercial flight is the first step towards making a good first impression. You might think that this is quite expensive, but this is just one of the ways by which you can ensure a good deal with your international clients. And then it will not seem so expensive after all. When choosing a hotel, make sure that your choice can enhance your relationship with them instead of hinder it. 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.
