How to conduct negotiations via the Internet
Select a program to runnegotiations. If you want to communicate only in text format, then you need to install ICQ, QIP or Skype. However, the first two are becoming less popular, as they are supplanted by more modern developments. Also use various mail programs. For example, The Bat! or Microsoft Outlook.
If you want toconducting videoconferencing, install such a client program, such as Team Viewer or Microsoft Linc. They allow you to negotiate in real time using various types of communications: audio and video communication, instant messages, the possibility of demonstrating the desktop and transferring files.
No best program will replace communication skills. To conduct successfulnegotiations observe a few simple rules.
Do not forget to choose the right time for the call. First, do not forget about the time difference. Secondly, plan to negotiate so that they do not fall at the end of the working day or for a time before a possible break.
Prepare all the necessary materials in advance. If you plan to demonstrate the screen, check that there are no unnecessary files in the required folders. It is unlikely that your interlocutor will be interested in seeing your favorite cat or dog, even if they are unusually good.
Make a plan for the upcomingnegotiations. Write down the key points, the most important questions, think through your possible answers.
If video communication is stipulated, look, whether there will be something superfluous in radius of the review of a videocamera. Check the sound settings. Do not forget your own appearance.
Get out at the appointed time. If this is not possible, be sure to notify the other person.
Maintain importantnegotiations. This will allow not only to return later to some important points, but also to assess on the part of how successfully you conducted the negotiations. This view from the outside will give an opportunity to see the mistakes and, accordingly, to improve in the difficult artnegotiations .
