The wonderful warm and sunny summertime gives your business a long list of opportunities to grow. Because of the wonderful weather, there is a myriad of outdoor events where your business can be represented. By sponsoring a festival, barbeque or sporting event, you put yourself in a great position to meet new people. And, these days, a huge part of a company’s success is relationship building.
Last month, the Canadian POS Blog offered up some ways for you to take your business on the road with you this summer. In today’s blog, we’d like to highlight some of the steps you may need in order to successfully conduct business while on the go.
Become a digital nomad.
According to the U.K.’s Business Matters magazine, “digital nomads are people that work remotely from any place in the world that has a good Internet connection. Digital nomads use telecommunication technologies such as mobile phones, laptops, cloud computing, and VOIP to conduct business in coffee shops, libraries, co-working spaces, hostels, or hotels.”
If you’re unfamiliar with VoIP, we suggest you taking a look at a recent blog from our friends over at MeloTel. Cloud-hosted telephone services enable you to use your business telephone number to make and take calls from pretty much any device you choose. VoIP has helped business owners all over North America to take their companies to levels that were once thought impossible.
Grow your knowledge base.
When you take your business on the road, you give yourself the opportunity to meet like-minded business people who can help to enrich your outlook on your industry. You’re never too old or too smart to learn new information. As Vistaprint explains, attending outdoor events as a business owner gives you opportunity to share knowledge, check out the competition, get inspired and build your professional network.
In addition, says their website, “you can learn from customer feedback. Make the most of this chance to find out which products your customers love most, but also where you could improve to better satisfy their needs.”
Get equipped with the right tools.
Don’t assume that because you’re not working within the four walls that make up your place of business, you can’t make sales. Accepting payments while on the road has never been easier! With the revolutionary Poynt Smart Terminal, you have the opportunity to accept credit card and debit card transactions wherever you are.
The Poynt Smart Terminal is known as the world’s first smart terminal and is a wonderful wireless solution for any company that wishes to accept payments in remote locations. “Poynt lets you accept payment anywhere, with the security and convenience you should expect in your payment solution,” explains their website.
The terminal accepts all of today’s and tomorrow’s payment types and can easily email receipts, refund transactions and settle with the tap of a button. In addition, with the free smartphone app, you can do all this from anywhere. It’s like a remote control for your business!
