Keyword listening for the business that can’t hear
The best speaker is one who listens. As an intern at an Internet marketing company, LGD Interactive, I have been enlightened to the world of social media monitoring. Social media is associated with people speaking their mind, honestly, and with little inhibition. A mass of the world is dumping their thoughts and opinions joyously on just about everything. With everyone speaking, it is advantageous for a business is to listen.
Let’s break down listening so we can apply it to a business scenario. When sounds in a room reach us, our ears take the task of deciphering which sounds to listen to, and which sounds to ignore. For example your cell phone going off will be more important than if your pen fell, therefore the phone holds more value. This skill is key in listening. Without this, the barrage of sounds would be unusable and even deafening in an ironic way.
