Are spam calls clogging your lines? You know, the calls from those pesky web development outfits, or office supply stores, or whoever it may be. Yeah, those ones. The ones you get just as you’re about to dial out to a hot prospect who’s expecting your call. Try as you might, you just can’t seem to get the voice on the other end to stop talking! You quickly press the disconnect button. Click!
Not only are these calls annoying, but they also cost you an average of $1 per call. That might not feel like much, but it definitely adds up.
It seems like you get tons of these calls a week, selling tons of things that your business doesn’t need or want. Don’t THEY understand that you don’t want to speak to them? You begin to wonder why you can’t just put your business numbers on the national Do Not Call list – as you did with your personal phones long ago.
You could…if you were using your cell phone for both your business line and your personal calls. Maybe you could get away with it, after all, a shocking 25% of business have done just that.
Bad idea – most of those businesses on the DNC list do use their cell phones for both business and pleasure, so they do qualify.
Besides, even if you could get away with it, once your number is on the list, you could still get calls for up to 31 days (as that is how often outbound calling outfits must check the registry). That’s a whole month of being pestered. Plus, you would need to register every phone individually. Talk about a lot of extra work.
It’s then that you wish for a better way.
Fortunately, that better way exists in the form of call blocking – and it’s available through a number of methods. You may be able to pay your phone provider a monthly fee to block calls from certain numbers.
Or, you could do it the easy way through Convirza’s Spam Guard. Spam Guard comes with our call tracking and call analytics capabilities to form a powerful combination of tools that give businesses an unfair advantage.
Call tracking traces every call back to the ad or marketing piece that caused your prospect to call in the first place. Call analytics then dissects each call and performs call scoring to separate leads by quality, while alerting you to every missed opportunity within minutes.
Spam Guard is our virtual bulldog – only it never eats, never sleeps, and never gets tired. We process millions of calls every month, allowing us to identify spam callers. Spam Guard blocks all incoming calls from those numbers, so they never even ring through to your phones.
When you’ve had enough of those telemarketers, and other unwanted phone solicitations, then you’ll want to try call tracking with Spam Guard. Check, it’s that easy. All of your inbound lines are covered, so your employees can work and not be bothered by over-zealous merchants anymore.
