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. And the reason for this is that you have done exceptionally well in your previous position since you had the capability to do it and so you can easily complete the tasks. 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. You realize that the limit of your competence is only up to the last 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. However, the corporation still continues to function because those people who have not yet reached their levels of incompetence continue to do well in their jobs. There is no such success problem for a person running his own business since there is no hierarchy to speak of. You success if you do well and you suffer if you don’t. 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. 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.
Do not make your international guests take a commercial flight but rather book jet charter companies if you are asking them to come over. This sounds expensive but it is your ticket to making a good deal. It will then seem not expensive at all if you end up with a good business deal. If you are choosing accommodation, choose a great hotel which will impress them so that it can help in building up your relationship with them. When making arrangements make sure that it is something that your guests would do if they were doing it themselves and knew the place well enough.
If you have having these business guests, then at least make a research of what kind of people they are. You should remember that there are those who would like more activities and other would like more quiet.
