This past weekend while many of us were still suffering from stomachaches due to eating just a tad too much turkey, stuffing and apple pie, SMBs otherwise known as small to medium-sized businesses looking for a way to enhance their communication systems including business VoIP were on the prowl.
Searching for the latest and greatest promotions taking place on the second annual Small Business Saturday, a day first coined by American Express (News - Alert) that now officially marks the time period in which consumers are strongly advised to buy an array of products and services from smaller sized companies, Nextiva is proud to “aid small businesses each day by providing them with affordable and reliable communications solutions for their employees. We encourage you to shop at the small businesses in your area this Saturday and support this nationwide effort,” according to a recent blog post.
The blog went on to outline a myriad of ways in which you can help SMBs to not only ramp up revenue and profit but receive an early holiday present in the form of sales. If you didn’t participate this year in the not-to-miss once a year event, consider these options next year:
· Go to www.shopsmall.com to locate the small businesses in your area and then either visit them in person or check out their personal sites
· Spread the word about Small Business Saturday via social media or just by talking to loved ones, friends and colleagues. Also, share what you find with the world! Did you just get a deal of a lifetime and want others to benefit from the same promotion? Tell everyone and anyone you know about the advantages your company has seen by leveraging this offering and the news will quickly make its way all over the place
· If you run a small firm, entice your current customer base as well as bring in new prospective consumers by blasting out promotional e-mails and social posts to help you drive traffic.
Whether you choose to take place in Small Business Saturday or not, it certainly seems as if Nextiva, a company deeply rooted in the SMB industry, is doing something right. Earlier this month, it was recently highlighted as the Platinum Level Choice Partner by Polycom (News - Alert) Inc.
Ultimately selected for its unparalleled level of expertise, experience and performance, Polycom firmly believes that its customers can benefit significantly when leveraging solutions from the Arizona-based business VoIP provider that will enable them to meet customers’ demands nowadays as well as those in the not so distant future. The Polycom Choice Partner program was developed with the goal of rewarding companies within the unified communications industry who go above and beyond expectations to serve a wide customer base. Platinum status is only given to organizations that show measurable success in addition to continuously build upon a high level of credibility in the market.
“We applaud Nextiva’s rapid expansion and commitment to best-in-class customer service,” commented Gary Testa, Polycom vice president of Global Service Providers, in a statement. “Nextiva has achieved Platinum status in less than a year, a testament to the company’s commitment to delivering UC&C solutions that power greater productivity and increase engagement.”
