(PRWEB) July 24, 2013 -- Saving money and growing money is the name of the game for small businesses. Every little bit counts for new business owners, which is why over-spending on things like phone service is unacceptable. Luckily, there’s VoIP.
VoIP is a booming technology that’s been around since 1995. VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol, which is just a fancy way of saying “Internet calling”. VoIP calls use the Internet to send and receive calls instead of old fashion analog landlines.
Internet calling saves small businesses thousands of dollars a year in reduced phone bills. VoIP also allows more free features, which helps small companies grow their profits.
In honor of small businesses everywhere, My VoIP Provider is here to reveal the top 5 ways that VoIP helps small businesses save their money and expand their profits.
1. Unlimited Nationwide Calling
One of the best benefits of Internet calling is that nearly all VoIP providers offer unlimited nationwide calling. Calls sent through the Internet are inherently cheaper than business landline technology because Internet calls circumvent the restrictions of copper wires that zigzag around the country. Unlimited calling means more freedom to call customers, business partners, and distributors.
2. IP Faxing
Even small businesses need faxing capabilities. However, traditional fax machines are a huge investment for start-ups that can’t spare the extra cash for a clunky piece of machinery. That’s why makes IP faxing such a useful tool. IP faxing uses the Internet to send and receive faxes, which cuts down on the monthly phone bill. Plus, IP faxing allows users to use their email to send faxes, so small business employees can use their computers, laptops, or smartphones to send out and receive faxes. This way, small businesses save money on supplies and bills but still stay connected as they grow their business’s profits.
3. Find Me Follow Me
Business VoIP plans often come with a load of included features, like caller ID, call blocking, 3-way calling, and conference calling. One really important feature is Find Me Follow Me. With Find Me Follow Me, small business owners can set up an order of phone devices that will ring if no one’s around in the office. If no one picks up the office phone, that call is directed to the next programmed number, such as a cell phone or a home number. This means that small business owners never miss any important sales calls.
4. Virtual Numbers
A business is only as good as its reputation, which is why virtual numbers are such a great marketing tool. Small businesses can buy a virtual number and arrange the numbers and area code of their choosing. For instance, a small print store can buy a virtual number to read 1800-BUY PRINTS. This makes it easier for customers to remember the number, which increases sales and profits.
5. Unlimited International Calling
Just because it’s a small business doesn’t mean it can’t go global. VoIP makes it easy for companies with international contacts to stay better connected. Many VoIP providers offer unlimited international calling, if not calls for pennies a minute. This is perfect for small businesses with international distributors and clients.
Small businesses everywhere can use a little extra change at the end of the month, which is why changing over to VoIP phone service is such a great investment. From unlimited calling, to IP faxing, to abundant free features, VoIP makes it easy for small businesses to grow their profits in 2013.
