Today is the last day of winter. At least, that’s what we’re told. Given the below zero temperatures expected this week in the City of Toronto where MeloTel is headquartered, we’re thinking we still have a little more winter left to endure. Nevertheless, warmer days are bound to be upon us sooner than later. And for many entrepreneurs, that means it will soon be time to travel!
In today’s world, there are many entrepreneurs who much prefer the road to the confines of the traditional business office. They attend trade shows and conferences and thoroughly enjoy getting opportunities to meet new people in person. As you can imagine, a travelling businessperson certainly has to be a people person. You’re not going to grow your customer base if you have a shy and standoffish personality.
At MeloTel, we’ve long championed the use of VoIP-based telephone systems because they greatly expand one’s ability to easily communicate with people all over the world. However, we’re well aware that nothing beats the face-to-face meeting as a means to grow a new relationship. Travelling businesspeople greatly benefit from their opportunities to network in person.
“Practically speaking, entrepreneurs can use traveling as a networking tool,” writes Drew Hendricks on Forbes.com, “It allows you to build relationships with people around the world, which can come in handy when starting a new venture. Beneath the surface, it also helps strengthen networking skills by forcing you out of your comfort zone and to interact with people you otherwise wouldn’t talk to.”
Which business owner isn’t, right? However, for business owners that prefer to stay put, their customer bases can only grow so large. Of course, for many business types, that works just fine, as their specific intents are to serve the people of their nearby communities. However, if you run a company that offers products and services that can be utilized worldwide, it’s advantageous to meet people who live in distant areas.
By meeting people who you would never have met had you never hit the road, you significantly increase your chances of growing your customer base. These days, most people put less stock into how close a business operates to their homes and more emphasis on how strong their customer experiences with a business are.
Many entrepreneurs fear that they’ll actually be hurting their businesses by rarely being in their home offices. Obviously, missing important phone calls is no way to impress the members of a customer base. This is why, for entrepreneurs on-the-go, MeloTel’s Single Number Reach feature is an absolute business saver!
This awesome innovation enables you to forward your business number to up to five different devices of your choice. They all ring at the same time when the number is called. That way, when you’re on the road, you can use your smartphone or even your hotel’s phone line to communicate with your clients. With Single Number Reach, you’ll never miss another important call again!
