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!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
