How To Best Utilize Your Cell Phone To Forward Your Business

Who doesn’t have a cell phone these days? Although the vast majority of us are using what we commonly now call smartphones, mobile devices of all kinds are the norm. Whether through messaging apps, social media accounts or good old-fashioned telephone calls, cell phones are today’s top choices for communicating with others all over the world.

Naturally, it’s important for you to use a cell phone to conduct your business. It enables you to keep in touch with co-workers, colleagues and clients in ways there were unheard of a few short decades ago. But are you fully utilizing your cell phone to forward your business?

Conduct your business on-the-go.

One of the most obvious advantages of using cell phones to conduct business is that they allow you do to so while out of your office. Especially if you’re using a call forwarding service to forward your business phone number to your cell phone, you’ll be able to stay on top of all of your business needs while you’re away from your place of work. This words wonders in the world of customer satisfaction.

“The more flexible you are, the greater the chances you can show clients your business is the one to go with,” says Julia Forneris on Chron.com, “For example, if you’re away from the office, clients can still communicate with you. Scheduling meetings becomes easier because you’re not tied to a computer or desk. You can even conduct a teleconference via cell phone while you’re on the go or traveling. Cell phones increase your ability to multitask.”

Step up your delivery service.

Cell phones have helped businesses that offer delivery services to come a long way. Gone are the days when delivery personnel could no longer locate their destinations. There are a variety of apps that provide GPS services, but also the ability to call a customer while on the road helps to alleviate frustrations that may come with potentially late deliveries.

On Chron.com, Ian Linton discusses this in greater detail. “Delivery drivers need to remain in contact so they can update the sales or customer service team on completed deliveries or advise them of any problems,” he writes, “For example, if a traffic problem looks likely to delay an urgent delivery, the driver can advise the customer or the sales team at the office.”
