How To Maximize The Benefits Of Your Business Phone

As we pointed out in our last blog, the telephone has gone through many changes over the decades. One thing has remained true. It is undoubtedly one of the most effective ways to communicate with others. Perhaps, this is why the telephone continues to reinvent itself. It certainly isn’t going anywhere. The phone just keeps getting better!

As a business owner, use of the phone is mandatory. This powerful device can streamline operations, enhance customer service and drive growth. But in what ways can you maximize the benefits of your business phone?

Use mobile apps to stay productive on the go.

Don’t assume that by “business phone”, we’re talking about the phone you use in your office. Today, your business phone line can be forwarded to any device of your choosing via Single Number Reach. What that means is any time your business number is dialed, you will have your chosen devices ringing simultaneously. In other words, you’ll never miss an important call again!

Of course, that smartphone you carry every with you can be used as a business tool in many other ways. There are many apps that are designed for business. Slack, Trello and Zoom enable you to stay connected with your team and manage tasks from anywhere. You can attend virtual meetings, coordinate projects and keep up with emails, all from your smartphone.

Use SMS marketing to message your client base.

Last week, we blogged about how SMS marketing can help you text your way to success. That smartphone of yours gives you a quick and convenient way to connect with your customers. By implementing an SMS marketing approach with the help of Melo Text, you can grow your mobile audience, engage clients and increase sales.

At the heart of an SMS marketing campaign is the ability to text bulk SMS messages to your subscribers. You can even send your subscribers automated messages on a preset schedule. Automatically text out a message one day, 7 days or 30 days after they subscribe!

Utilize VoIP to save money.

Are you still using a traditional landline system? Get with it man! It’s 2024. Making the switch to Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is going to save your business a ton of dough. VoIP uses your internet connection to make calls. Because of this, making a phone call – even a long distance one – isn’t much different than sending an email in the cost department. Don’t think savings is the only benefit of using a VoIP system. The features are off the charts!

VoIP technology gives you such features as call forwarding, voicemail-to-email and video conferencing. In addition, the flexibility and scalability of VoIP systems makes them perfect for growing businesses.
