Do you know anyone who doesn’t own a smartphone? We’d be surprised if you could name even one who isn’t a senior citizen. The Androids and iPhones of the world were extremely popular long before the coronavirus pandemic. However, because of the current state of affairs, smartphone use is more important than ever – especially for business owners.
Do you use your smartphone to conduct business? Here are four reasons you should:
Perhaps, the most obvious reason to use your smartphone for business purposes is because it travels everywhere you do. In today’s fast-paced world, it’s quite common for an entrepreneur to have many different work locations. By sticking to the archaic method of only doing business on a landline-based business phone, you force your callers to have to leave messages for you when you’re out of the office.
In today’s world, waiting for call backs isn’t a very welcome activity. People expect immediacy. When you can be reached on your smartphone, it means that your clients, colleagues and co-workers have round-the-clock access to you. Of course, you don’t necessarily need to be available 24/7. However, the fewer calls that go to voicemail, the better the reputation of your brand.
Of course, smartphones aren’t only used for making and taking calls. In fact, some people forget that these devices are phones at all! Androids and iPhones are commonly used to watch videos, take photos and surf the internet. Certainly, your business can take advantage of the fact that smartphones provide such easy access to the world.
Need to learn how to conduct a webinar? You can look up videos online using your phone. Do you have to send photos of your products to a client? Simply snap them with your device and shoot off an email with the photo as an attachment. Looking for a particular part or model of an item integral to your business? Surf the net on your phone and you’re bound to find it!
Once upon a time, businesses required big and hunky filing cabinets to store all of their pertinent information about clients, suppliers and products. Those days are gone. While you’re certainly welcome to maintain traditional filing systems, most smartphones have the ability to store a ton of information for you.
Documents, photos, videos, call recordings – you name it. Your smartphone is a little world of its own that – depending on its storage space – can store every important file you need to run your business.
There’s an app for everything, isn’t there? And thanks to the cloud softphone by MeloTel app, you can use your smartphone to make and take calls without using a single second of your cell phone minute plan! By downloading the free app, you can conduct business over the phone using your business extension. That means you don’t have to give your cell phone number out in order to use your cell phone for calling.
Cloud softphone by MeloTel is completely free, as long as you’ve already subscribed to our Commercial Phone Services. For more information, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-888-MELOTEL.
