For this holiday season, why not give (and get) the gift of a Vocalocity referral? If you know of a new business or an established organization that could benefit from hosted phone service, simply refer them to Vocalocity using our easy referral form.

Not a Customer? Not a Problem

The best part? You don’t even need to be a Vocalocity account holder to refer! That’s right – let’s say you’re an employee at an office that uses Vocalocity. Your friend tells you he’s opening a business, but is trying to decide between multiple service providers. You recommend Vocalocity based on your use of Virtual Receptionist, Company Call Recording, Paperless Fax or any of our other features, and your friend gives us a try with five phone extensions. After he’s used Vocalocity for three months, we’ll reward you with $500 in the form of a check sent to your house! It’s that simple.

How Do I Get My Money?

When the referred business likes our no-contract service and continues to use us for three months, we’ll give you a token of our appreciation by sending you money in the form of a check or an account credit. Again, the referred business needs to be an active and paying customer for 90 days before Vocalocity processes award payouts. If you have a question about the status of your referral award, just give us a call and we’ll be happy to check when your referral signed up.

What Are You Waiting For?

To refer, just visit www.vonagebusiness.com/referrals and fill out the form on the left. If you’re not an account holder, give us a call at 1-855-236-0106 to submit your referral to a member of our team.

Is your marketing budget tight, but you’re still looking for ways to attract new customers without breaking the bank?

We like to help our small business customers find savvy ways to save while growing their business, which is why we’re so excited that Instagram now offers profiles on the web! If you’re not a smartphone or tablet owner, you may not have heard of Instagram but it is a free, cloud-based social photo sharing application that allows users to upload photos from their phone to an app.

See the example photos below as an idea of how you can be using Instagram to promote your business. Just take a photo of a something relevant, give it a helpful caption, and either share it by itself or connect other social accounts for maximum social exposure.

         

Free Promotion Ideas for Small Business

Many small businesses use Instagram to take photos of their services, specials or features and promote them for free via the mobile app. Now, with the web profile, business owners can easily promote different aspects of their business and have them be highly visible on the web. Link to Instagram photos in your blog, your website, or share on your other social media profiles.

  • Restaurants: Upload photos of the menu board, food photography, or photos of special events or sports nights. By adding a geographical hashtag like #atlanta or adding a sports team like #falcons to your photo of the football game on your restaurant’s big screen TV, you can help regulars and potential customers find you based on their interests.
  • Retail and e-Commerce: Add photos of new shipments, clearance items or window displays. Especially for the holiday season, taking photos of gifts and accessories is a great way to tell your followers about new apparel or retail items that would make great presents.
  • Travel Agents: Post photos of exotic locations, upcoming destinations and special offers. When you hashtag #getaway or #tropics during a particularly bleak January, you could find snowbound customers who are looking for a last-minute getaway or a spring break deal.
  • Traditional Offices: Do you offer services instead of goods? Why not create a page for your team that highlights your company’s charitable activities, team-building events, office activities or community participation? You can also provide sneak previews of upcoming product launches and websites to keep customers and prospects engaged.

NOTE: Hashtags don’t seem to work on the web version yet, but the mobile and tablet versions are 100% supported.

How do you use cloud apps and technology to promote your business? Have you gotten new customers via Instagram or social media?
