How Many Minutes Are You Engaging With Your Customers……………And Which VIP Have You Missed?

The fun, human side of me wants to tell you about what’s going on here in Connect-it today but, I have been advised, to keep it professional, SEO rich and relevant!  So here is relevant!

I have mentioned before our sales people are members of various networking groups.  This is a great opportunity for all business to link with others that can help you grow your business.  Because of what they are doing, currently, this is helping me make my blogs more relevant as it is a back to to what they say so they can point their networking groups to the web site.  Not a bad idea!  But, I have said all this before, so I will move on!

We all need telephone numbers to communicate. Fact.  But do you have control over when you phone rings, where it rings?  Do you know where your calls are coming from? Do you know how many calls you missed and how quickly you or your team answer the phone?

If the answer is no, you need one of our Numbers in a Box!

Why I hear you ask; because for £10 a month, you will have the same control over your inbound calls as any large corporation who spends thousands on a smart telephone system!  So, what you do you get as standard with one of our numbers all for £10 per month? (oh and a one off set up charge of £45)
