VoIP Perks for the Lone Wolf

Over the past few decades, VoIP has evolved from being predominantly used for residential landline service, to providing communications for small businesses and large scale enterprises alike. As technology and demand has changed, so has the structure of VoIP. One area that has been overlooked is that of providing communications services for a solo entrepreneur. If you’re a lone wolf in the business world, what can VoIP do for you?

VoIP is extremely flexible and scalable. Regardless of the size of your organization, VoIP can work for you.

Phone Communications
Freelancers and solo entrepreneurs use their mobile phones to conduct most business transactions. Because of this, the idea of using VoIP seems complicated or unnecessary. By discounting VoIP phone service, you’re missing out on business specific features that could be extremely helpful. A few of these include the ability to put a call on hold, send digital faxes, route incoming calls, and get your voicemail transcribed and sent to your email inbox. Although these are just a few of the features that come with most VoIP service plans, they give you an idea of what you’re missing out on.

Look Bigger
The outward appearance your company presents to customers is not determined by the size of your company. A one person operation can provide impressive services and a professional looking website with minimal effort. It’s all a matter of details. Some of these small details can be added with the help of VoIP. For instance, you can use a mobile phone as a business phone and have your outgoing caller ID appear with your company name. When customers call, it appears as if you’re located within an office.

Work Remotely
Not only can you use VoIP with your mobile phone, you can design a system that allows you to conduct business with one single phone number on multiple devices. Find Me Follow Me and Simultaneous Ring are two VoIP features that allow incoming calls to get routed to several different devices. If someone calls your business line, it can ring on your mobile phone, home office phone, tablet, or laptop, in a specified sequence, or all at once. Either way, you’ll never miss a call.

These are just a few of the ways in which VoIP can help a lone wolf in business. To learn more about what VoIP can do for you, visit our Learning Center for an expanded list of available VoIP Features.
