What’s the best time for marketing calls?

Telemarketing can be an extremely efficient way to increase sales, but it is a method that comes with a whole host of its own, specific challenges. Unlike with things like print ads, generally emails, and even text messages, timing is absolutely crucial. With other techniques, people can come to your content as and when they are looking for it: when they open a newspaper, switch on the TV or the radio, scroll through their Twitter feeds, or check their phones. But when you’re placing a phone call, you have to have some level of confidence that there will be somebody at the other end of the line with the ability, willingness, and time to answer the phone and have a conversation at that moment. Telemarketing also comes with its own laws, and businesses who choose to ignore or flout these regulations put themselves at risk of incurring fines of £500,000 from Ofcom and the Information Commissioner’s Office, telemarketing’s regulating bodies. Make sure you know the telemarketing rules, and avoid fines.

One woman’s quest for a healthy work / life balance and how it could impact you

Everybody in the working world is constantly walking a tight-rope, teetering between leaning too far into their personal life and getting entirely sucked in to your work. Nobody wants to neglect the people and things that they love, but we are also desperate not to sacrifice professional efficiency and performance – in part to even be able to support the people and things we love.

People have different ways of ensuring they are striking this balance in the best way possible. Some carve out particular days on which they shut down all work communication, others have rules about how many extra hours they’ll spend in the office each week, or have morning rituals with their friends or family before dedicating their day to work.

Common conference call mistakes to avoid

Conference calls remain one of the most popular and most powerful communication tools available, and their place as a staple part of most businesses’ coherence and communication has been largely unchallenged. A big part of this is doubtless the ease of accessibility which they provide. You don’t need WiFi, you don’t need a camera or any other specialist technology, you don’t need to be in any specific location – all you need is a telephone, be it landline or handheld.

Can remote working really work?

Recently, we have all heard – with varying levels of excitement – about the possibility of remote working. This means the opportunity for people to carry out certain parts of their work, or a particular set of hours, or even all of their job, away from an office. That means people can work from home, from coffee shops, from hot desks, or even from across the globe.

How can that really be possible? Obviously, technological developments are a crucial factor. Thanks to instant messaging services, and the availability of genuinely free, reliable conference calls through providers like WHYPAY?.

How to set up a free conference call

By now, most people have heard of the wonders of free conference calling. Many questions have been rattling around, like how a conference call can really be free, how to find the ones that are free, whether a company can make money from offering free conference calls, who free conference calls are useful to (answer: everyone. Students, teachers, prayer groups, bands, sportspeople, and many more have all found great, innovative, and helpful ways to make the most of these services), and why anybody would pay for a conference call if you can actually get them for free.

Who is paying for your free conference calls?

A lot of people’s immediate reaction to being offered something for free is disbelieving skepticism. The assumption is that there must be a catch, a condition, a hidden cost. Sometimes, these sage cynics are right; a lot of conference call services claiming to be free do end up costing you money. Sometimes it’s in sign-up fees, sometimes they charge you for what they term ‘extras’, but which they know are almost always essentials, and sometimes it’s only free if you have a very small number of participants or a very small number of minutes. Wherever the charges are hidden, it’s causing a lot of confusion and mistrust in an industry which is trying desperately to clean up its image.

How secure is free conference calling?

Very often, people hear the word ‘free’ and become immediately wary. There is, of course, the knee-jerk reaction that there’s no such thing as a free lunch. In this increasingly cynical, avaricious, money-centric world filled with false promises and loopholes, it’s an understandable reaction. Still, having even given WHPAY?’s website or blog a cursory glance, you would, by now, know that although we can make no promises about lunch, there is such a thing as a genuinely free conference call.
