I recently started a group on Linked In. The group is The Video Voice. I am inviting everyone interested in video communication. That's right! I know the technology has been around and getting better. But truly I am just getting started using it to connect with prospects, clients, family and friends.
It clearly adds a new dimension. I am enjoying it. The only issue is getting use to seeing myself on camera. What a great looking guy I am - don't laugh.
I am surprised with the response so far. Some people seem ready for it and,...well some people don't see it yet. That's the way it is with most things. Some may remember when the first cell phones reached the market. A few had them, a few could afford them and believe they were user friendly. The magic word is "few." Things are more equitable with video communication technology. Just about everyone can afford to use it.
If you take a look at the cell phones just about everyone you know has a cell phone. Some have more than one. The technology has only advanced - it's even SMART.
I dare say that video communication will catch the same fire. The only question is are you going to be ahead of the curve or behind it. Now is the time to become an early adopter. The benefits may be well worth. But, it's entirely up to you.
