“We want to know more about your business and we’d like to see if you’d be a good fit to work with our Dallas branch,” said the HR Director of an international company headquartered in Philly.

Our phone conversation continued with me saying, “Wonderful – let’s talk about your needs. But first I always want to know how you made the decision to call our organization. I’m sure your internet search netted you many options.”

“You want to know the truth?” she asked. “Sure,” I said, laughing and curious.

“Ok – I could find your phone number!”

“That IS funny,” I replied. “You didn’t look at our testimonials, our blog, the books I’ve written?”

“No… you have no idea how hard some companies make a buyer search for the simplest data! You made it easy to knock on your door.”

How hard do YOU make it for your prospects, colleagues, and partners to find you? Even though a majority of messaging is handled via technology, The Phone, and The Phone Call to your mobile or your international headquarters in Dubai need to be easy to locate.

The relevance to you: Review your own material. How well do you communicate the basic information? How easy is it to find you, connect with you, and hire you? Don’t forget the obvious in the midst of conveying the complex.

I got that job. My phone number is easy to find. (Hint – upper left corner, top of home page and every page. 972.490.8676.)
