In our last blog, we highlighted the fact that today’s smartphones are widely used as business-boosting tools. Not only do they allow you to make and take calls from a variety of remote locations, they also enable you to receive and send emails, surf the internet and even accept payments via the VirtualMerchant Mobile service offered by Canadian POS Corporation.
But what else can you do to use your cell phone to grow your company?
Use it as a sales-boosting tool.
Because of your ability to access the internet using your smartphone, you can easily research the various businesses you intend on working with. You can also login to your own email accounts to locate customer information to ensure that you are well prepared for your phone calls. By having your cell phone double as an internet surfing tool and a traditional telephone, you will be better prepared to both service your customers and increase your sales numbers.
“Cell phones are an important business tool for sales representatives,” insists Ian Linton on Chron.com, “Before a sales call, they can access customer records via an Internet connection to check the customer’s recent purchasing history and identify any potential problems. They also can contact colleagues during a meeting to get information that the customer needs before placing an order. After the meeting, sales representatives can phone or email orders using smart phones and get information on availability and delivery.”
Turn your business from a local to an international entity.
Do you service customers in Canada exclusively? Or do you offer your products and services to a worldwide audience? Cell phones, of course, give you the ability to contact people from all over the world. This has been made easier with calling apps that enable you to utilize the internet via Wi-Fi connections versus eating up your calling minutes provided by your wireless phone service provider.
“Cell phones enable you to be in contact with clients across the globe,” writes Julia Forneris on Chron.com, “If you have a telephone meeting with someone in Europe, the time difference is not as much of an issue with cell phones. You can communicate from home on your work cell phone rather than in the office during off hours. Also, if traveling internationally, you can still maintain contact with home because you are reachable on the same number and phone.”
