Iowa City, IA (PRWEB) March 29, 2006
TMONE , an Iowa Direct Marketing firm announced that it has acquired its 250,000th competitive telecom subscriber for providers in the LEC (local exchange carrier), ISP (internet service provider) and VoIP (voice over internet protocol) space. The companies’ superior VoIP marketing solution along with a proprietary VoIP marketing database enabled TMONE to cross the 250,000 subscriber threshold one quarter ahead of earlier forecasts.
TMONE has been specializing in the telecom vertical since its inception in 2002 and recently expanded its contact center division to a 300 seat, 27,000 square foot facility formerly managed by the Mass Markets division of telecom giant MCI, now Verizon Business.
Specializing in B2B (business to business) & B2C (business to consumer) sales and marketing for the VoIP space has been a focus of the company and a catalyst for ongoing success. Maneuvering to enter the public marketplace at the appropriate time, TMONE’s traction within its niche has ensured TMONE is top of mind when it comes to VoIP Marketing. The company acquires new customers utilizing multiple marketing channels and advertising methods. Obtaining the quarter million mark is a proud accomplishment for the Iowa start up that supports the current draft of the Communications Opportunity, Promotions, and Enhancement Act of 2006.
With VoIP penetration growing by the minute, the race between VoBB’s (voice over broadband) providers and MSO’s (multiple service operators) has picked up speed. VoIP, also branded as digital phone service utilizes high speed internet connections to bring the inexpensive and feature laden service into homes and businesses.
The challenge for providers of VoIP service is how to acquire new subscribers in a manner that makes financial sense and also provides the volume of subscribers needed to achieve critical mass and carve out a profitable name in the industry. “TMONE continues to provide the industry with financially accountable customer acquisition that saves clients as much as 66% over other sources" states Anthony Marlowe, CEO "We are proud to have obtained a quarter million subscribers for our clients at a fraction of the cost it has taken some industry notables. Vonage’s 1.5 million subscriber lines does not impress us, anyone can buy a million subs with a billion dollars.”
TMONE, who helped Vonage get to a million customers and currently acquires customers for some of the industries more prominent VoBB providers such as Packet8, does not plan on slowing down. "We obtained 250,000 subscribers primarily operating out of a 4000 square foot facility. Now, with 27,000 square feet we have the capacity to swing the market in any our client’s favor and the ability to catch industry subscriber leaders" states Marlowe “Our solution has been tailored for VoIP acquisition and the results speak for themselves. The reality of VoIP sales is that close ratios increase when there is a sales professional readily avaliable and easily accessible via phone or via multi-media interaction. TMONE is a premier provider of both”
