Is Nexogy Voip Right for Your Business?

With faster, more reliable internet, more and more small businesses are switching to voice over internet protocol technology for their everyday phone calls.  The primary advantages of VOIP are usually lower cost and incredible features.  Large business has used Voip for decades.  When you go to any retailer, take a look at the telephone and it will usually be a Cisco Voip phone.  Additionally, many medium businesses have been using Voip through their local telephone carrier with products like a T-1.  Switching to Voip may not be advantageous for all businesses and I will attempt to utilize my experience to suggest those who can benefit from Voip and those who cannot.

First, lets look at the traditional telephone model.  Phone companies provide a dedicated copper wire for each phone line which you would like.  Each phone line can carry one conversation at a time.  Absent a problem in the line, the call is crystal clear and extremely reliable.  The cost for each line varies by state, but is usually in the $40-$50 range.  Equipment, long distance and features can greatly increase this pricing.  Additionally taxes and fees can add 20-40% to the price.

Voip allows users to make multiple calls over one line.  Utilizing a dedicated (not all Voip dedicates bandwidth but all GOOD Voip does) portion of your internet connection, a service such as Nexogy will route calls anywhere you would like them to go.  This gets me to the first feature of Voip that will determine if it is for your business.  Do you have a need to receive and make calls when you are out of the office?  With Nexogy’s Find Me/Follow Me service, you can automatically have your office phone reach you anywhere.  On your cell phone, no problem.  On your home phone, no problem.  Need to return the call but want your office phone number to come up on the client’s caller ID; no problem.  I recently worked with a law office that works in the area of criminal defense.  Attorneys can now return calls to clients from their cellular phones without providing that number to the client.  Similarly, physicians and other medical professionals love this feature.

Thus, we have criteria number one.  If you would like to receive and make calls from your office phone without being tied to your desk, Voip may be right for you.

As stated above, landline pricing is based on the number of lines.  The equipment is based on the number of stations.  Most small businesses do not consider the equipment costs because they are paid up front.  Medium to large businesses often have a monthly fee associated with the purchase, maintenance or programming of their telecom systems.  If you are considering a new system or if you are growing and need to purchase additional equipment, it would be a great time to look at Nexogy voice over IP.  All equipment, programming and support are included for one low monthly fee with Nexogy.

Criteria Two:  If you are considering new telephone equipment, consider Nexogy Voip

The final determination regarding switching is the number of incoming calls your business takes at a given time.  If your business is growing or downsizing, it is a good time to consider switching to Nexogy.  The calculation of lines versus stations must be made on an case by case basis, but I always suggest that my clients take a look at the advantages of Nexogy if they are making changes in service.

Only an independent review of your services, equipment and needs can tell you if Nexogy is right for your business.  I would be happy to take a look at your services and provide an objective, no obligation assessment and estimate.  You can contact me at ken.1704@gmail.com or telephone 727-344-9536

Is Solavei for You?

When talking to people about Solavei, I look for two types of people.  Obviously, I love to talk to people who are excited about the opportunity to make a realistic income working from home.  More about that later, because that is the rare Solavei customer.  The most common Solavei customer is the one that has the need for 4G speed!  That is why I created the website http://www.needfor4gspeed.com  Solavei runs on the fastest, most reliable 4G network in the country and charges just $49 per month for UNLIMITED data, voice and text.   There are no contracts or commitments and you can use the iPhone, iPad or any GSM phone.  Sorry VZ guys, no LTE here.  We have a blazing 21 Mbps 4G network!

The big bonus:  When your friends ask you what service you use, you can refer them.  When 3 friends have signed up, your service is just $29 per month!  Don’t plan to refer any friends?  Think about how a company with no commitments and no advertising will keep its current customers.  Do you think http://www.needfor4gspeed.com and Solavei will be more responsive than those companies that lock you into a two year term?

If you are like I was and are tired of running into your data cap in the middle of the month, or looking for a hotspot to use your iPad because you don’t want to stream all of your data, then check out Solavei.  For about the cost of a data plan with those other guys, we give you unlimited data, voice and text!   Oh, did I mention the first month is free and there is no obligation to continue?  Check it out today at http://www.needfor4gspeed.com

Can Your Cell Phone Pay You?

In this competitive market, companies are creating new methods to get your cellular business.  Most offer free phones.  A few have taken a different approach.  http://www.needfor4gspeed.comhas created a program that uses the best nationwide 4G cellular service and pays YOU when you refer your friends and family.  All plans are for unlimited data, voice and cellular.  The starting price is just $49 per month.

How does it work?  http://www.needfor4gspeed.com works in Trios.  Each person who gets a trio of three friends to sign up, gets at least $20 per month off of his or her bill.  That is just $29 for unlimited Data, voice and internet.

It gets better!  When those three friends refer three friends each, you get $20 for each of those trios.  That means you are actually earning $30 per month instead of paying $100 as you used to.

How difficult is it to get a trio?  I can only share my example.  My first referral was a family member that was already using a pre-paid service.  My second was another family member, who then printed some flyers and took them to work.  She got two trios almost immediately as she works in a large factory.  My third sign up was obtained online just yesterday.  I created a website for him and he has gotten 43 visitors in one day.  He will have two trios by Monday.  Today I went to the bank and the banker asked me to download the online app so he could demonstrate.  He was so impressed with the speed of my download that we had a discussion about the service.  He took the website information and will probably sign up for himself and his two children (a trio!)

It is that simple.  I will never pay for cell service again and will earn money every month.  You too can staImagert earning today at http://www.needfor4gspeed.com

I am a Mobster . . . And You Should Be Too!

Being so excited about an idea that you feel you must write about it is a great feeling.  I have to thank the folks at localshops1.com who recently started “Cash Mobs.”  You can find them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/235806689844940/  You too can be a Mobster and I encourage you to do so.

Here is the idea, groups of citizens covertly plan online. They then descend upon a local business or two or three.  They shower that business with purchases, pledging to spend at least $10.00 per person.  The idea is to introduce customers to local shops and help out the local economy.  People buy things they would buy anyway or spend a few bucks they man not have otherwise.

Here is how Localshops1.com describes the events:

1. Shoppers and business owners nominate local businesses. 2. We coordinate meeting time and place, and gather the troops!
3. Everyone meets at the designated time and place, and together we invade one of the nominated businesses. 4. Participants are encouraged to wear red and spend $10 at the business.

You can also nominate your favorite local business for a visit from the Mob.  To find out more, email me at ken@idealsp.com or check us out on Facebook  https://www.facebook.com/SmallBusinessSaturday/app_183558821725512#!/pages/Ideal-Solutions-Provider/136703729697444  I hope to keep posting the events.

5 Free Ways to Get Your Business Noticed Online

Ken Davidson http://www.needfor4gspeed.com
There are so many ways to get your business noticed online today but these five are my favorites to share.  Some are the obvious and some are not so much.

5.  Google Places-the most important listing you can have.  If your customers cannot find you, they cannot come to your store or website.  If you have a brick and mortar location, take advantage of that local and mobile (Think Android) traffic.  Also, consider using all other Google services for more exposure.  For instance, this article will be published on Blogger.com because that is Google’s blog site.  If you have a Verizon business telephone line, you have Google Apps premium for business for free.

4.  Bing.  Bing is probably one of the most overlooked search engines to submit to.  Bing is used in many mobile directories as well as a lot of mapsites.  As Windows Phones become more popular, Bing will become more popular. Other directories also use Bing as a database just as they do Google.

3.  DMOZ.org  This is old school, back in the day, this was the place where all the search engines got their information.  I still recommend posting your site here.  Not sure if it helps the way it used to, but its free and does not take long.

2.  YP.com, Superpages.com, 411.com  Check your listing and make sure it is correct.  Just today I noticed a restaurant in my neighborhood with an outdated listing on all of these sites.  A good phone company or agent should take care of this for you but you still need to check it.

1.  American Express Yourbuzz. (discontinued, unfortunately)  I cannot stress enough how important this site is.  Your buzz provides a control panel to see how you are doing on each major search engine. It is free even if you are not a cardmember.  It points the most minor discrepancies.  I did not notice that some of my listings were Tampa, FL and others were Tampa, Florida until Yourbuzz pointed it out.  There are also invaluable tips, blogs and other useful tools here.

There are many, many more tools which I recommend.  I chose these 5 because, if you do not have the time to do anything else, take two hours one day and utilize these resources.  Feel free to email me at ken.1704@gmail.com with any questions.  I look forward to your feedback!

The Ideal Way to Mix it Up

Brian Whittington, CEO of Ideal Solutions Provider Business Telephone and Internet wanted to ring in the new year in style while thanking those who worked with us in 2011.  What better way to Mix it Up than to invite our staff, some Verizon employees, and our business partners to Martini Lounge at International Plaza in Tampa?  Garry Hopkins, CEO of National Comnet Services even flew in from Virginia Beach to join the fun.
Brian Whittington explained, “we are so excited about the prospects for 2012 that we wanted to create some buzz.  We have some new business partners that we wanted to introduce to our staff and other key allies. We have some existing business partners that we wanted to thank for being there in 2011 and assure that we are moving forward in a strong manner.  We hope to do this again in the near future.
