Submitted by Dan Faraldo in Industry News, MeloTel Features, MeloTel News

Okay, seriously – who doesn’t have a smartphone these days? In 2019, you’d have a pretty difficult time finding anyone without one of these handheld devices. Sure, there may be a few people here and there who haven’t caught up with the times. But if you’re a small business owner, you practically can’t live without a smartphone!

In today’s world, people expect to be able to get in touch with you all the time. And with so many competitors out there, you can’t risk losing your customers because you’re hard to get in touch with. As we’re sure you’re aware, your smartphone enables you to stay in touch with customers, colleagues and co-workers in a myriad of ways. Emails, text messages, messaging apps and of course, phone calls – your smartphone is capable of allowing you to use them all.

Used wisely, mobile devices help you to grow your business.

Because smartphones are able to do so much more than operate as telephones, they enable you to keep on top of all things related to your business. In addition to making and taking calls, you can use your smartphone to surf the internet, update your social media accounts, conduct your banking and record voice notes – just a list a few of its popular uses.

“What are the top ways small business owners use mobile devices for business?” asks Rieva Lesonsky on SmallBizDaily.com, “By far and away, communicating with customers and/or scheduling appointments top the list, used by 55.5 percent of small business owners. About 30 percent use their mobile devices to create notes or to-do lists; 29 percent use them to manage or monitor social media; and 24 percent use them for banking.”

Use your smartphone as your business phone.

Allow us to clarify. You can use your smartphone as your business phone without giving out your cell phone number. Many entrepreneurs find themselves distracted in their personal lives because they have so many business calls coming in to their cell phones. However, with VoIP technology, you can have your business phone forwarded to your cell phone number.

“There once was a time when business owners had to be confined to the four walls that made up their offices in order to do their jobs,” note our good friends at Canadian POS, “Conducting business in 2019, however, looks a lot different. Especially with the assistance of VoIP technology, entrepreneurs can now make and take phone calls in remote locations no differently than if they were in their offices. Clearly, smartphones make you a lot easier to get in touch with.”
