Most switched from traditional phone providers, they know firsthand how productive and economical our system is, and they’re passionate about it. But the program is also open to anyone interested in referring businesses to our business phone solution. These tips will help you build a continuing base of referrals: Reach out to your network. You already have a network of business colleagues, vendors and industry friends (including your LinkedIn network). Tell them about the Vonage business VoIP phone system. Do your homework. Learn all you can about cloud-hosted business VoIP solutions, and become an expert. And remind your network about the qualities that set Vonage Business apart from others in the industry: savings, business features, service reliability and support. Think industry-specific. You may already know that some business categories are particularly ideal for business VoIP – insurance, law and physician practices, marketing agencies, real estate offices and many more. Consider targeting a specific industry(s) to develop your referrals. Generate conversations. There have never been more opportunities to participate in business conversations, whether it's an online discussion group or a local chamber of commerce meeting. Take advantage and offer yourself as a resource. Tell your story. Great referrals often result from talking about your own experiences and giving simple advice. If it’s genuine, you’ll seldom need to oversell to generate a quality referral. Be yourself and tell your story. A business referral is essentially a meaningful endorsement from an industry peer. The Vonage Business referral program was developed to show our appreciation for every referral. We like participants to think of the referral program as a “win-win” opportunity – easy money for you, and a better and less-expensive phone system for the businesses you refer.
