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!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL....

I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
