Patricia Paul replied to the topic Recruitment 411 Chatter: Are printed marketing materials a thing of the past? in the forum Miscellaneous 8 years, 8 months ago
Interesting thought concerning printed marketing materials–I think you and Jeff are right that we are coming to an all electronic age but I do believe that it will take a little longer than we think. I come from a generation of sales people that have always had business cards and slicks or one sheets to leave behind after an appointment. I feel absolutely underdressed if I don’t have one of the two.
Right now-there are still many people who like to be able to have something to put their hands on to remind them of a vendor or meeting or class. But the time will come, when all of that will be electronic.
Another staple that I see the iPhone and Androids replacing-watches! Everyone always has their phone in their hand with the time right on it (even if you just flew across the US and through 3 timezones–your phone will update correctly). I love my iPhone but I’ve been wearing watches much to long to stop now. But I see it coming around the bend.
