Modern Vs Traditional - Which One Wins In The World Of Business?

One of the biggest challenges that many business owners face these days is whether to go down the traditional or modern route for doing business. These two different options are available in different areas of business, from creating advertising campaigns to organizing the day to day running of the company. So, which is really better? Here are some of the things you need to consider before you decide.


Advertising


Traditional advertising consisted of sending out thousands of flyers to people in your company’s local area and paying for advertising space in newspapers and magazines. However, the advertising scene has recently been revolutionized thanks to the dawn of social media. These days, there are lots of chances to get your business’s name out there to a wide audience without even paying a penny. You just need to make sure that you are on top of your social media game and producing tweets and posts that people want to share. Thanks to social media, modern forms of advertising are definitely more valuable than the traditional methods in today’s society!

Finance


Finance is another area in which traditional and modern methods are going up against each other. Previously, entrepreneurs hired accountants to make sure that their books and accounts were up to scratch. The accountant also filed the company’s taxes each year. However, thanks to the development of a lot of new financial software, more and more business leaders are now able to do this themselves. These online programs make it incredibly easy to file taxes, order business checks, and set up a payroll. In fact, it’s so convenient, you could become your own accountant! However, some entrepreneurs still prefer to liaise with an accountant so that they are 100% sure all their calculations are correct! Plus, an accountant knows all the tax loopholes that you might not be aware of!


Recruiting


Just a few years ago, companies had to place job adverts in local newspapers and hoped that job seekers saw them. However, this has completely changed over the past few years thanks to the Internet. These days, there are many websites dedicated to job postings. All you need to do is sign up, place your advert, and you can guarantee that hundreds of people will see it. Professional social media websites, like LinkedIn, are also a great way to connect directly with job seekers and freelancers whose skills you might want in your business.

Project Management


Organization has never been more easier now that we have tech on our side. Gone are the days of keeping notes and diaries in paper form - now you can organize these on your computer or tablet device! There are now many different project management and organizational apps that you can download to help you stay on top of all your work. And you will never miss a meeting or important appointment again!

Even though it may look like modern methods win traditional ones, it is important you research fully the ones that are best for you. But this is all down to your type of company!

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
