When your business was first starting out, it was okay for you to be the one to answer customer phone queries. As you go bigger, you slowly realize that you need a system. You need staff to do the smaller jobs so you can focus on the more important ones. But, as a small business, you also don’t have the cash flow to hire several people just to answer your phone. Your solution? VoIP.
Benefits of VoIP
You need a strong, professional first impression on your clients. A VoIP phone system gives you that. They will take you seriously if you make your company professional.
VoIP service providers target small businesses. They can offer you big company business phone system features for a fraction of the cost. You don’t need to shell out at least $10,000 for a piece of equipment. All you need is a few simple devices and a good broadband connection and you are good to go. Most VoIP systems are also DIY (do-it-yourself) so no need for a professional to install the system.
A VoIP system can make you look like a bigger company. The features that it brings enable you to run with the big boys in your industry. You are not left behind when it comes to phone technology. Perhaps one of the most important features of a VoIP to make you look (or in this case, sound) professional is the auto attendant. The auto attendant will answer your calls automatically and route them to the appropriate person or department. You can choose the voice talent that is appropriate for your business and you can even choose or customize a script.
Other features that make you stand out are conferencing, computer and app integration and routing calls to your smartphones. The nice thing about this system is you can go on vacation, stay at home or work from a coffee shop and no one will know. It will make it seem like you’ve been in business forever.
Think big when it comes to your small business. Take advantage of the advances in technology, free tools, new equipment and a VoIP system to make your business look professional, impress your customers and improve your bottom line. A loyal group of customers can give you a lifetime of business as long as you treat them professionally.
