Sasha Talks Tech
startup stories, trends and digital lifestyle hacks
When it comes to choosing your tech, you may feel as if you know what you want. But do you really? Do you know exactly what you should be using, what’s best for your business, which pieces will suit you personally? It’s easy to look at the latest launches and decide that, yes, that’s exactly what you need. But how much of that is marketing, and how much is really you knowing what you want? If you’re not starting to question yourself, and feel unsure of what is really the best tech solution for your needs, then you’ve come to the right place. Because we’re going to talk through the top tips on how to decide what's right for you.
Know What You Need
First of all, you’re going to know exactly what you need. This may sound easy, but it can often be the hardest part of all. Forget about the key pieces of tech on the market. And forget about what you can get from the pieces you already use. You need to be thinking about exactly what you need. Get out a piece of paper and write down the things you need from a cell phone, or the business activities and process you need to do. With this activity, you should start to figure out what pieces of tech you need to get everything done.
Work Out The Brands You Like
Next, you’re going to want to think about branding. Because every brand of tech has their own thing going on. Maybe you’re a diehard Apple fan, and you’re only ever going to be interested in the iPhone and other ‘i’ products? Well, have you tried any of the other major tech brands? If not, maybe you need to look into your alternative options and really discover the best brand for your needs.
Consider The Cost
Another key consideration you should look to make is cost. Because it’s going to be essential that you’re able to afford whatever it is that you’re looking to get. Some brands and pieces of tech are always going to cost more than others. So you should think about comparing the cost of the options you have, and shop around to find the best deals too.
Get A Personal Recommendation
Get A Personal Recommendation
At this point, you may find that you’re just really unsure of what you want to go with? Then you could benefit from getting an expert opinion. Whether you use a tool like the laptop finder or head into a tech store and speak to the sales experts on what they think is best for you, you should be able to get a personal recommendation. This can often make it easier to make your decision.
Give it A Go
But before you do make that decision, be sure to give everything a try. You need to make sure that you’re 100% happy with the tech you choose. So go into stores, even if you’re planning on buying online, and play around with the pieces to make sure that they’re definitely what you want.
