The Virtual World . . . What Don't You Know?
September 8, 2021
Hosted by Frank Helring
The definition of the word “Virtual” is existing, seen, or happening online or on a computer screen, rather than in person or in the physical world: The pandemic or in some cases now the endemic has brought upon the business community at large one of the greatest challenges in its history. For the first time ever, business other than our E-Predators i.e, Amazon, Ebay now Walmart etc has had to find a way to make relationships and resultant sales happen . . . without being physically present. The retooling of both marketing and communications has been momentous as virtual tools that were largely utilized once and awhile now have become an essential necessity and most likely will never be in the same status prior to the pandemic. The earth shattering results early on in 2020 resulted in small business not only being closed and “shut in” but more importantly “shut out” from access to their existing customer base other than by virtual means. We all ended up back in the classroom of learning “How To” continue our businesses from a position of being afar from our customers and potential customers. Along these lines of the need for education and strategies to overcome these new challenges, joining me today is Ann DeVere. Ann has been busy as a bee and reached back into her reservoir of knowledge and taken these recent changes “Head On” and created an educational platform both Virtual and Non Virtual and brought solutions forward that EVERY business out there needs to investigate. Join me today as we meet Ann and find out what she has been up to for your benefit.

BizZne$$ BuzZ is all about your business. Small business is in trouble and they have been as far back as the “rocking” that occurred in 2008. The 14.2 percent loss of many brick and mortar small businesses happened by the year 2015 (source, NFIB 2015 Report). Already being squeezed by Internet predators, like Amazon, E-Bay, etc. They are literally sucking the life out of small businesses by customer and profit “siphoning.” B2B Networking Groups and social media disappointments abound.
Small business needs a “counter” to these E-commerce tsunamis and that mechanism is the power of UNITY, RELATIONSHIP and the Law of RECIPROCITY. This is an EDGE that is a non-compete. The “perfect storm” of shut down/customer distancing, lack of capital and uncertainty are the devastating effects of COVID19 disruption.
Our mission is to provide your business the boost that it needs to recapture your personal visions, rejuvenate your operations and to bring about a platform that represents your interests.
