Texting - just for friends?


Do your clients text you? I find this behavior to be very odd. Texting is so informal and it is meant to be a quick form of communication. I don't like texting as a form of communication with clients; I just think it's weird.

Also, I realize that with cell phones you can call people after 5, but I think that using your brain should be a prerequisite to a phone call. For example, I am an event coordinator for Cupid.com speed dating and I actually got a phone call about the event at 2am on Saturday night/Sunday morning. Hm...maybe he was confused as to what sort of dating event this was.

Or maybe he thinks you're foxy and lookin' for love.

I send actual emails that say "thanks," and get one back that say "no problem." Or, some clients of mine will email me "what time Monday?" and I will email back "10:30." Isn't that essentially texting? I think that 15 years ago everyone thought that emails were impersonal and stated that they would never use it to conduct business...it's just the changing of the times...
