Business VoIP- Phones for Small & Medium Businesses
Start a voip business – what do you need?
There are several things you need to consider if you are planning how to start a VoIP business or add to your existing services.
A VoIP business can be lucrative, whether you are providing it exclusively or as a bolt on to other telephony or IT services.
VoIP can give you a recurrent income stream. Not only do you bill monthly, but once companies have it, many find they can’t live without.
But exactly how do you set up a VoIP business? As leading VoIP reseller experts we have put together an easy 4 point plan to help you set up.
1) Do Your Research
The first thing you need to do is understand what the benefits of VoIP are. Not only will this help you pinpoint a market to target but you will be able to sell much more effectively and authentically.
Our blog on things a VoIP reseller needs to know is a good place to start.
Establish how VoIP can benefit a potential client, how secure it is and how it can dovetail into existing technology.
Other than that, you can pretty much leave the technical nitty gritty to us. By partnering with a VoIP reseller like VIPVoIP, you can rest assured that we will deal with all the technical details for you. All you have to do is sell!
2) Decide Your VoIP Service Offering
Another essential part of establishing how to set up a VoIP business is to decide what exactly you want to offer people.
Do you want to offer a full end to end IT and telephone consulting service?
Or, is there quite a lot of competition in your local area doing that? If so, you might be better targeting companies who already have an existing IT service, be that in house or external. These companies might just want the telephony service.
Perhaps you want to wrap the VoIP services in with general telephony and sales advice consultancy. Many businesses struggle to deal with a sudden upturn in demand or need a robust business continuity plan. Are you the person to guide them through the processes involved and offer VoIP as a solution?
3) Add The Value
When planning how to start a VoIP business, as with any business, a crucial step is to consider your added value.
Most entrepreneurs know the more value you can add, the more sales you make.
It might be that your added value is something tangible or technological. Apps, dedicated marketing hotlines, geo-located phone numbers, and emergency phone lines are all added extras that you could consider offering.
Or you might decide to make your added value service driven. For example, better SLAs, a bespoke service, or price driven competitiveness.
Do your research on what else is on the market in your area and find your niche.
4) Choose a VoIP Reseller Provider
Unless you want to do all the grunt work yourself, choosing a VoIP reseller provider is an important step in planning your VoIP business.
Pick one that helps you deliver your core services and your added value.
