I attended the most amazing conference recently – in my pajamas. I think you know where I’m going with this. Online training, virtual seminars, webinars, teleconferences – call them what you will, but learning online increases productivity for your team and your customers – and saves you time and money. As many VARs look for creative ways to save on some budget line items while beefing up others, travel is usually the first to be evaluated and many times the first to be cut. But today you can do that knowing that you won’t be sacrificing your ability to still get ahead and be successful. Think of all the training you can offer to your employees and team online. Many times, they can join a seminar that is convenient to their schedule because teleconferences are often offered at multiple times, or even available as a video download later. What types of teleconferences could you host and create that would benefit your customers? Today, live online training differs from virtual training in that there is an actual instructor (or you) leading the class or discussion. What a great way to position yourself as a leader and resource in the industry, while also providing a value-added service to your customers that not only saves you money, but saves them money as well! And all in the comfort of your pajamas if you wish!
