V1 VoIP Services Can Benefit Your Business

V1 VoIP resellers offer services and solutions that benefit businesses like flexibility and scalabilityIn the world of business communications, VoIP has been a revolutionary technology, revitalizing the way we interact that needed to update with the changing world. VoIP uses your existing internet connection to power your phone calls in place of traditional analogue phone systems. When a V1 VoIP reseller offers a business V1 VoIP services and solutions, the benefits for the business are substantial. By utilizing V1 VoIP services and solutions, a business becomes enabled to take advantage of these benefits by making the switch to VoIP from analogue phone systems.

Here V1 VoIP explains the benefits of utilizing our services and solutions:

The Bottom Line
Historically, traditional phone systems have come with the cost of line rental for the physical phone lines that are used to provide you with the service. V1 VoIP doesn’t rely on phone lines because it is powered using your existing internet connection. At the most basic level, all you need is a phone and an internet connection to get started with making and receiving calls. Depending on the size of your business, one or more phones lines may have been required to provide the desired service. After that, the physical system itself would have needed installing with costs for the hardware and installation work itself. With V1 VoIP, setup costs are greatly decreased.

Flexibility
Today’s business environment has changed so much from only a few decades ago and that change requires flexibility. Remote working, periods out of office, and mobile technology have fundamentally changed how business is done on a day to day basis. Communication is of fundamental importance in business, so the changing environment has altered the requirements organisations have for their communications service.

V1 VoIP services offer complete flexibility to the business user because configuring your communications can be done online, generally through an administrative control panel. Do you want to redirect calls to your mobile while you are out of office for the afternoon? You can do it in seconds. Need to reassign phone numbers to other employees? You can easily take care of it yourself. Want to get your voicemails from your mobile and your landline in one place? No problem.

Scalability
Hopefully, your business is going to be a success which requires growth, and growth means needing more phones for your expanding team. V1 VoIP allows businesses to easily scale their communications. The capacity of traditional analogue phone systems for phone numbers and users was reliant on the physical hardware of the system. If the number of phones that you needed jumped above what your hardware was capable of, you either had to upgrade your existing system, or install a new one. Never mind the expense of this undertaking, it almost assuredly meant that new members to your team would be without a direct phone number for a period of time.

With V1 VoIP services, as long as your internet connection is powerful enough to support additional users, all you have to do is get the additional phones you need, with no systems installations required. This is because your phone system, known as an IP PBX is hosted in the cloud. There is plenty of other hard work to be done. Getting the necessary phone numbers and handsets set up for people so that they can do their job should be easy. With VoIP, it really is easy.

As a business, you should expect more from the services your landline communications are offering.

Wholesale V1 VoIP Services for White Label Resellers

Wholesale v1 voip sersvices and solutions for white label resellers and voip service providers Wholesale VoIP services with V1 VoIP are a way of entering into the lucrative telecom market without having to bear the enormous cost of infrastructure rollout. Wholesale VoIP is simply like any other type of wholesale arrangement, with a reseller, service provider or Internet entrepreneur purchasing services on a wholesale basis and then reselling them through their own brand.

Reselling Voice over IP services can be as easy or complicated as you want to make it. Almost any type of service, including international and domestic calling, direct inward dial (DID) numbers, fax service, and much more, can be acquired wholesale for subsequent resale. The simplest way to get into the business via a wholesaler is by purchasing wholesale calling card services, which can simply be resold under your own brand, either online or physically.

The telecom market is highly dynamic and represents a lucrative opportunity, and every day, new entrepreneurs move into this market. Wholesale services can be obtained through several sources with only a small investment, either directly from the provider (Reseller) or through a marketplaces.

The greatest advantage is that by going into this business on this basis, it is not necessary to shoulder the burden of up-front capital expenditures, which for the carriers, can be very costly. Buying the services wholesale and reselling them retail allows you to bypass all that, and get into business with a very low up-front investment. Traditional telecom businesses must endure high levels of capital expenditures to build out physical points of presence, but the wholesale option bypasses this requirement, allowing the retailer to instead focus on marketing and building the business.

V1 Shows How to List Your VoIP Number in Local Directories

V1 VoIP shows you how to get your VoIP phone number listed in local directories directoryGetting your business listed in the 411 directory is a vital part of the business building process. You may heard that in order to get a 411 business listing you had to have a dedicated business phone line because VoIP wouldn’t work. That’s a myth! Here V1 VoIP explains how you can get your VoIP number listed in local directories so customers can find you.

Having your phone number listed as a business is so important. A key factor for getting a 411 listing is in driving customer sales for your business. Don’t ever let a customer call Directory Assistance to find your company and find a dead end because it wasn’t listed. Below, V1 shows you the steps for listing a VoIP number in some of the biggest online phone books.

411: Call “Directory Assistance” and explain your current situation. This may not work but it’s worth the attempt. The 411 directory reports to numerous other services such as White Pages.

Google: Add up 100 listings on “Google My Business,” each complete with a physical address, phone number and photo/video. To confirm your listing, though, you must wait for a phone call or postcard, which can take weeks. Secure VoIP numbers with local area codes to avoid signup problems. Doing so on similar search engines, such as Bing or Yahoo, follows relatively the same procedure.

List Yourself – This is a free 411 listing service and once you submit your business information it offers several options for you to validate your business phone number. Once your number is validated then your information is sent to the directory assistance databases used by all of the major carriers.

Verizon Business – There are four main Verizon offices with each servicing several states. You will need to call and say that you want to get a “foreign listing”. You will need to provide them your name, company name and business phone number. The cost varies in each state and if you’re located in California it costs a $30 set up fee and $3.25 per month.

Wireless Listings: You can now get your business cell phone number listed in the 411 and the print directories no matter which wireless carrier you use. There is a monthly fee for this service and you can also select which Verizon print directories you want your number to appear on.

Yellow Pages: Locate the “Listing Management Center” once logged in and enter your business’ virtual phone number. Either fill in or correct the rest of your profile, clicking “Finalize” to complete the request.

Yelp: Create a free account and “unlock” or add your business to the website. You will need to enter a series of credentials before the site asks you to locate and verify your business. This means that following registration, Yelp will give you a call and recite a confirmation code. Keep this code safe moving forward.

Keep in mind that because this is a free service it may take you several attempts to get your number successfully submitted and listed. It will not only legitimize your company but also help potential customers find you. Don’t let a non listing cost you business credit and potential sales for your company.
