Ever wonder about the excuses a potential customer gives you for not switching to VoIP? At V1 VoIP, our resellers have a laugh at why a company wouldn’t want to save money while increasing productivity and unifying communications. It should be a no-brainer right? So why are these small businesses not making the switch? Here are the four most common reasons our resellers say they are given:
1. They Don’t Understand the Technology
Knowing as much as we know, it’s easy to forget that to someone who isn’t in our industry VoIP can be very confusing. It is easy to say that V1 VoIP services and solutions will be less expensive and more efficient but business owners often hear a lot of legalese. Plus it almost sounds too good to be true.
2. They are Too Busy
A business should never be too busy to keep up with what their competition is doing. And their competition is adding hosted PBX services, allowing for mobile workforce, and they are saving money by doing so, which may lead to new hires or expansion.
3. Too Much Hassle
Too much change can be a bad thing and business owners often think that making the switch will be a total disruption to their company. On top of that, people are simply resistant to change. So implementing any new technology will certainly have an impact. Productivity is not going to be negatively impacted by making the switch and don’t forget that the money saved will far outweighs that initial challenge.
4. They are Just Stubborn
The phones are ringing and they hear voices when they talk into them. So if it aint broke right? Wrong. Many companies not deploying VoIP services are just plain lazy. While many amazing business owners and employees are competitive workaholics, they lack this same drive and focus to making sure their communications are optimized. Or they want to make the switch but don’t want the extra work that it might entail.
A business can save over 50% on their monthly phone bill by switching to V1 VoIP services. Don’t let you potential customers give you one of these excuses. Contact V1 VoIP today or sign up now for more reseller sales advice.
