Benefits of Chronological Order
Posted May 19, 2010on:
If you have a task to accomplish, how are you supposed to go about it? What are you to do first, second, third, and so on? How will you know when you have reached the end?
If you are trying to describe a process, or give instructions to someone, or describe the development of events or a product, how do you help your audience see the order of occurrence?
The answer to these questions is organization. The information must be organized so that your customers will understand the correct sequence of steps, from first to last.
To do that, you need chronological order.
A benefit of chronological order is that it shows how things happen over time. It untangles a riddle by assembling the facts into a coherent whole on a timeline.
This powerful organizing principle guides your customers, so they know what to do first, initially, while, finally, in turn, immediately, later, after, before, subsequently … and so on. Now that you have given them the magic key, an organizational order that indicates when they are to do something, they can actually use your product, service, process, or idea.
Satisfied customers, in turn, help to drive sales and grow your company.
When you develop your customer-experience strategy, don’t overlook the benefits offered by chronological order in your communications.
