The Importance Of Offering Freebies To Customers

There’s an old saying that says that “the best things in life are free”. The phrase is the title of a song and a film, but more importantly, is way of looking at life in a positive way. The idiom is likely often said to connote that love, friends and happiness are all unavailable for purchase. Therefore, the things that we most often take for granted should be cherished as they mean more than any material item.

While this is true, the old “the best things in life are free” can still apply in the business world. Most business owners assume that providing anything for free is simply a waste of money. But this couldn’t be further from the truth. People love receiving things for free, don’t they? Who wouldn’t? It’s important to consider the positive impact that offering freebies can have on the people who get them.

At MeloTel, we proudly provide our customers with our incomparable VoIP-based Commercial Phone Services. With these services come a number of freebies that no other telecom provider can boast that they provide. Firstly, we offer a free Polycom Phone program which is designed to make your switch to hosted phone services both easy and cost effective. Instead of having to pay for your new telecom equipment, MeloTel provides it for you when you sign up for our services!

The free phones are available to you for as long as you are a MeloTel customer. In addition, we will cover the costs of porting your numbers to us. There are also no setup, activation or shipping charges. That’s right! Not only will MeloTel program your new phones for you, but we’ll ship them to your place of business free of charge. Our experience has shown us that providing such freebies truly makes us a people-pleasing brand!

As a MeloTel customer, receiving our freebies is an amazing benefit. However, as a business owner, you still may be wondering how offering your own customers such freebies will benefit you. Of course, it’s important to analyze the needs of your target market. For example, if your business sells products online, you may want to consider the impact that free shipping will have on your business.

In many cases, free shipping will lead to larger orders. If your customers know that they won’t have additional shipping charges, they will be more inclined to buy more items from your online store. Consider the fact that free shipping isn’t offered by all merchants. In fact, most do not generally entertain this as an marketing strategy. As a result, offering free shipping can help to easily get a one up on your competition.

People talk. And when they start talking about the fact that you company offers free shipping, more people will be heading to your company website to take advantage of it! This inevitably leads to more sales and greater profits. Not to mention, your chance of enjoying repeat business from all of your new customers significantly increases. As mentioned, people love getting things for free. Our experience has shown that this will pay off for your business in the long run.

At MeloTel, we strongly believe in the need for Canadian small businesses to enjoy the benefits of VoIP technology. This is why we specialize in helping companies transition from traditional telephone systems to our robust and feature filled cloud-based solution. We know that one of the best ways of making the transition so easy is to keep costs for our customers low. Our free phones and free shipping help out quite a bit with that!
