My office # is a land line. Probably about 50% of my customers still have landlines. Very little business from internet.
The only business I get from the net are emails from one of my property management accounts. The other two call and leave messages for scheduling but all of them have land lines in their systems. The one could call and schedule jobs as a last resort.
I would be nervous if my scheduling and office systems were down from no internet service. I don't depend on the net for either.
Old school has its advantages.
Yes, I could continue on and not just survive because I have no employees and very little overhead.
same here. My business computer isnt even hooked up to the net. Get some new biz from website but honestly could do without it. Customers still have landlines but more are cancelling them but I know my customers would find a way to reach me. Landline here too with answering machine. Only time I use my cell phone is to let the customer know when Im running early or late.
I run my company completely digital (tablet computer, emailed receipts, online booking, text notifications, ect). I do not carry a pen or paper in my work bag. This works well out here in Silicon Valley. Most customers want to work entirely through text. GPS would be the big one for me as far as getting work done. Although after years of service jobs I know my way around the bay pretty well by now.
