4 Reasons To Make Your Smartphone Your Business Partner

Submitted by Dan Faraldo in Customer Service, Industry News, MeloTel Features, Social Media

In our last blog, we explained why it’s smart to use your smartphone to conduct business. In today’s blog, we’ll expand on that theme by offering you four reasons to make your smartphone your business partner:

1. It helps you to manage your banking.

Once upon a time, receiving a cheque meant having to take a trip to the bank. That time is gone. Today, a cheque can simply be photographed using your online banking app. The photo counts as your deposit. The recently-released feature has made it easier than ever to keep your bank accounts full. Don’t miss out on this very handy smartphone use.

According to Connect Americas, “downloading a banking app from the bank where you have your checking accounts will help you track your deposits and withdrawals; you can set up alerts that will notify you when a customer makes a deposit and the amount deposited. Likewise, some banks allow gadgets that enable you to turn your smartphone into a debit or credit card paying tool.”

2. It enables you to send product photos to clients.

Smartphones help to make shopping so much easier. When you head out to the mall, you can easily snap pics of any product you see, send it to a friend or family member and ask for an opinion. This is an especially handy idea when you’re shopping for gifts. Why can’t this idea be implemented as a business practice? Want to show a potential client your latest innovation? Take a picture and text it while you’re on the phone with him/her!

“Got a customer calling or emailing you asking about a new product?” asks Simon Anquetil on Business2Community.com, “Take a snapshot of it with your camera and email them a visual while you’re still on the phone to increase your chances of making an instant sale.”

3. It lets you stay on top of your social media accounts.

We can’t even begin to guess how many times we’ve heralded the benefits of social media on the MeloTel Blog. We update our Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts on a very regular basis. Why? Everyone is using social media, that’s why! There’s no reason to not download the app of every social media account you have open in your company’s name and keep them updated. It’s a great way to advertise your brand and provide customer service.

4. It allows you take your business on the road.

In 2019, no one has to be confined to the four walls of their offices in order to conduct business. Your smartphone lets you take your business on the road with you. And with the help of MeloTel’s amazing Single Number Reach feature, doing business on the go has never been easier!
