smartphone

It is very likely that right now you are reading this article on your mobile phone, or that, hopefully not, you are consulting your whatsapp at the same time you read this on your computer.

Smartphones have taken over our lives in a way that neither Steve Jobs could have foreseen (well, surely he does ...).

Each time the statistics are more explicit in this subject, showing data as interesting as those offered by the latest survey on Equipment and use of information technologies in homes published by the INE. This shows how 96.4% of Spaniards have a mobile phone and 77.1% of Internet users access the Internet through their smartphone.

It is obvious that smartphones have been a great advance in the business world, facilitating not only communication between people, but their own administrative efforts.

There are different applications to manage and even enhance the network business. Let's see some of them:

Instant messaging

Instant messaging has made SMS and MMS revolutionaries obsolete. It allows sending and receiving messages through the internet, making it possible to have a conversation with a person anywhere in the
world in real time. It also allows, according to the application, to share images, documents, videos and audio recordings. This has undoubtedly revolutionized the world of P2P (Person to Person) connections.

These app's allow you to be connected in real time with people related to your business, as long as they have them installed as well.
In addition, the option of creating groups and lists of diffusion will facilitate the task of keeping your group informed of news, news, etc.

WhatsApp was the first instant messaging application that reached smartphones and quickly became popular among users. It has more than 800 million users worldwide. It allows to manage groups with a limit of 50 people.

As a novelty, it also allows calls to be made through VoIP, although to do so you must have Internet service, either mobile or through a WIFI connection; without this service the application can not be used.

A weak point of this application is in terms of what security and privacy of the information is concerned, leaving the data of the users unprotected.

Unlike WhatsApp, Telegram is cloud-based and heavily encrypted (no one can see your messages). Therefore, you can access your conversations from several devices at once, including tablets and computers.

It also allows you to share an unlimited number of photos, videos and files (doc, zip, mp3, etc) of up to 1.5 GB. This data is stored in the history privately and can be searched through any word or phrase.

The groups have a limit of 200 people. You can mention a user or add a hastag # mention.

The security and privacy of the messages is stronger. Whenever the other user accepts the invitation, a separate chat session is opened, whose messages are transmitted by an encryption key and decoded in end-to-end devices. The keys are renewed when the conversation is finished and the messages vanish when they are read at a certain time.

In October 2014, the "touch and release" mode was included for the images with the possibility of self-destruction.

Social networks

Social networks are other of the great phenomena of the 21st century.

It is the most used social network, but we must pay attention to some points.

Your MLM business is not that different from any other business worldwide. You are a businessman and you have to look like it. So, pay close attention to what you publish and how you publish it.

A very useful tool are the lists (you will find it on the right side of the Facebook page). With this tool you can get the information you publish only see who you decide, for example your network, and avoid, for example, to see photos of your private life.

In this way, when you add a person to your business, you have to assign it to the list that you have created for it.

Also organize your photos so that only the group of person you want can see it.

It is a powerful tool to be informed and to promote your business.

The most complicated thing you will find in this social network is that you have to know how to correctly use the 140 characters.

The speed with which you can promote yourself makes twitter a very useful tool.

Many businesses have even started using it as a customer service.
