Years back, the best definition we would have given technology will be, cars to replace donkeys and horses, telephones for ancient letter writing, and electronic ovens in place of coal pots and the likes.
Today, we boast of innumerable things that technology can do to make our lives even more beautiful than it seemed 20 years ago.
The term “Digital” is fast becoming a household name for many and the excitement of being “online” might probably surpass the refreshing taste of party jollof rice for some people.
However, as much as the digital space keeps filling up and accommodating more and more people, not all of us have tangible reasons to go digital yet.
Asides from connecting with long-time friends and faraway family members, why are you in the digital space? You might want to ask yourself.
Even as you begin to think up responses as you read, we are set to give you 5 banging reasons to go digital in a few minutes.
Building effective relationships;
What would you say about classmates and friends you made while in primary school? Bet you can’t remember a whole lot of them and won’t see some of them again. Life happens, we all move from place to place, leaving behind beloved ones.
Having the digital space on our side in this century has helped build long-lasting relationships that are as effective as possible. These days you can find anybody you want on different social media platforms.
You can also build relationships that would take your career to a different level on social platforms like LinkedIn.
Social distancing has got nothing on us, all thanks to the digital space.
Reaching a wider audience;
In today’s world where more than half of the population is online, it just takes a search on google to check out a product and order it. Taking your business online guarantees that you have a bigger audience at your disposal. Forming relationships that transcend the physical space means that your best customer doesn’t have to be someone you’ve met before.
Reaching a wider audience makes your business all the more relevant in the digital sphere of things.
Competition is a vital aspect of the commercial space. The more your competitors, the better it is for you to create and maintain a unique value that renders your product or service indispensable.
For every internship or volunteer position you require, you can be certain that you’d find in the digital space.
The wealth of opportunities that abound on the digital space keeps getting larger by the minute.
Several job opportunities you will never find out except you go online, now grace the digital space.
The number of materials available for anyone searching is innumerable. Videos, Audios, Tutorials, PDFs, Webinars, Live-streams—you’d find all you need to develop and get better if you know how to use search engines to your advantage.
No, you don’t have to remain in a traditional workplace if it means you can go digital and get wealthier in the process.
As technology evolves, more jobs are created. With the creation of jobs comes the opportunity to earn better.
One amazing thing to note about digital jobs is that you could work remotely, which means that you can have 2 or more jobs at your own comfort and not have to worry about transporting yourself from one job location to another.
As it is, no one has an excuse to remain poor, if they refuse to access the wealth of the digital space.
Which of our reasons resonates deeply with you the most? And how have you found the use of the digital space to achieve your goals this 2020?
