Even though the costs associated with updating a company’s communication platform – from landline to turnkey VoIP services – lowered substantially a few years back, there are still some business owners who haven’t made this essential communication upgrade yet. How can this be possible you ask? Why in the world would any company choose to use a landline for communication purposes when there’s a much more efficient communication option now available? Good question.
And for the most part the answer is, they don’t like change. Especially when everything is seemingly going just fine. These landline using companies have most likely been using a landline for communication purposes since they launched their business. They figure if it’s not broke, then why fix it? What they don’t seem to yet realize is that as soon as they perform this communication upgrade, they’ll get instant access to quality communication services that will help them enhance their communication options, save money on communication spending, as well as increase their overall functionality.
Turning a NO Into a YES
There’s a fine line when it comes to helping a client upgrade from landline to VoIP. Anytime a potential client says they’re not interested in VoIP services, it could mean a number of different things. It could mean that they don’t have the time to learn a new communication platform. It could mean they don’t want to spend any more money on communication options (not knowing VoIP services will often save them money!). Or it could mean that they’re just simply too busy to even think about it.
So what is it exactly that needs to happen in order for these landline using company owners to take the next step in updating their communication platform? They need to be convinced that the entire process isn’t going to interfere with their everyday activities. These owners are super busy, and the thought of initiating such a large task tends to be very overwhelming. And because more likely than not VoIP technology is a topic that’s going to be new to them, they’re going to benefit greatly using the assistance of a professional VoIP reseller, as they’re able to walk them through the entire process, step by step.
It’s every professional VoIP resellers job to find out why a landline using company isn’t ready to sign up for high-tech VoIP services yet. Successful VoIP resellers know how to get the information they need.
The following are a few pieces of advice when it comes to helping a landline using company make the necessary switch to VoIP.
- Training is Essential. With any new technology comes the need to learn how to use this new technology. Thus, the proper training is essential so that the company knows how to best utilize the VoIP services they now have access to.
- Don’t Rush. Don’t make the client feel like they need to learn everything right now. There’s a lot to know when it comes to utilizing VoIP technology at its best, and taking it slowly so that they don’t feel overwhelmed is highly suggested.
- Bandwidth. Because VoIP uses the internet to connect with others, an internet connection is required. The higher the bandwidth, the faster the connection.
