My opinion about face to face contacts is solely based on my personal experience, based on my background in Insurance where a physical meeting between agent and client was required for the signing of documents.
And the fact that I primarily deal with Insurance Agents, Realtors and Mortgage people, all of which are “High-touch“ rather than “High-tech” businesses.
However, that being said, as I have transitioned away from Insurance, I also have developed quite a few strong contacts utilizing the phone.
If I were a prolific blogger/writer, I’m sure that I would also develop quality contacts in that manner also.
That’s the great thing about the time we are living in now, there are many options available to everyone.
People will naturally gravitate to marketing using their personal strong suit, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t dip our toes in the water and try other avenues.
Who knows, maybe this time next year, I’ll also be saying that blogging and writing is the way to go.
Thanks for your comments, as I’ve said before, the reason I joined this site was to learn from people like you!
