Make Yourself Available With Phone Forwarding and Voice Mail System

Being able to meet customer needs, remain available and provide good customer service is key

Okay, how many times has this happened to you? You sit down in need of a service, say a carpet cleaner, and you open up the yellow pages. You find six businesses that appear to offer what you need, and you begin dialing numbers. The first three aren’t answering, the next two greet you with a standard answering machine that you fear will never be heard, and finally on the last try, you get to actually speak to a person and ask questions. Frustrating isn’t it?

Now ask yourself this: do customers feel the same frustration when they call your business? Are you appropriately equipped to handle incoming calls, no matter what time of day or where you might be? If this is at all a concern, then it’s time to consider new options.

When a potential customer has sat down with a phone book, they’re already presold on buying a service or product, they’re just trying to find the right place from which to purchase. Are you ready for their business?

If you want to be approachable and available for such inquiries, then consider the following:

  • Have a toll-free forwarding number so you can stand out right from the get go. Potential customers are going to use a toll-free forwarding number more readily than a regular one. Why? Because they automatically see a toll-free number as an asset. It’s a benefit from the start for the customer, who won’t have to worry about your availability, no matter where they’re going to be.
  • Consider a vanity number. Vanity phone numbers not only set your company apart from other competitors, but a catchy vanity phone number is one that can easily be remembered. It’s a number that can be shared with other potential customers, and it helps your product or service stay at the forefront of potential customer’s minds.
  • Arrange for a better phone service. If you’re not able to attend to the callers need in a timely way, or you aren’t sending out a professional image through your phone service, then consider a voice system that does the job. A qualified phone voice system can help you appear more professional, even if you work out of your basement. You will emit a level of sophistication, and you offer your customers a simplified way to communicate.

Other benefits of a voice system include:

  • Increased visibility
  • The same level of technology and communication capabilities of larger companies, but affordable for smaller businesses

Take a moment to consider whether your potential and current customers are reaching you as easily and professionally as possible. If there’s any doubt, do something about it today.

Toll-Free Numbers Serve As Effective Marketing Tool

phone-38127_640

Small businesses can better market products and services with a toll-free phone number

Just about every small business owner has specific goals in mind when it comes to marketing products or services. Ultimately, all of those goals will have something to do with getting more customers, raising company awareness, and having a bigger profit at the end of the month.

If any of these goals fit your business objective, then obtaining a toll-free phone number will help you meet those goals.

A toll free phone number, which can start with 800, 866, 877 or 888, is usually used nationwide, which means the caller can initiate a toll free call anywhere in America without being charged. The toll-free number owner (an individual or business owner) pays for the call, not the caller.

This service can be a great marketing tool, because if there is any interest generated about your business and the services or products you provide, it is much more enticing for a potential caller to be able to make an inquiry at no cost.

This also gives you a potential client list that knows no bounds. You can provide customer service for your clientele from any place in the country. They can call to ask questions, place orders or clarify details, no matter where they happen to be, and for free. And sometimes a toll-free phone plan can be more cost-effective than any other long distance plan or calling card.

Toll-free numbers are particularly appealing to customers who travel frequently and will need to conduct frequent business calls with your home office. Toll-free phone numbers can also be a bonus for small business owners who have associates or family members that need to keep in contact with the office from the road. It allows for easy access, no matter where they are.

Marketing your business always requires a strategy. When you’re mapping out your plan, make sure that having a toll-free number is a part of it.

Happy Memorial Day

The original meaning of Memorial Day is fading little by little, and for some people it is becoming just a day off.  But do you know what is the real meaning of Memorial day?

First some history: Memorial day. formerly known as Decoration Day, was at first the celebration for the Union and Confederate soldiers who died during the civil war. During the 20th century, this celebration was extended to honor all Americans who have died in military service.

At UWTMobile, we provide affordable international communication to many customers in the army, so they can call  their family from all over the world while they serve their country.  This Weekend is the opportunity to celebrate those who serve and died for the United States of America.
