Getting Good Internet Leads Through Speak2Leads

My job involves administration and human resource in my current work but when we need to reinforce the team for sales all of us joined the sales team to increase the lead for prospective clients. We were trained early this year so we’ll be equipped not just with sales techniques and strategies but be informed of the product’s technical details as well. I’ve been exposed to that kind of job several years back when I worked for a pioneering minor Telco company. I did some customer service assistance work too aside from calling out possible clients for our DID and prepaid cards. 

I can say that selling is very different from any job I’ve taken for almost two decades as it requires a lot of patience and positive attitude. You have to be well informed so your target clients would be satisfied with the information you are giving them. You also have to be persuasive in a way to get them interested and to let you make an offer either through demo meeting or emailed proposals. But even if you did all these things you’re still unsure if you’ll get the attention of customers much less their precious time to let you have a meeting with them. 

Well with some of the companies I know they spent thousands of their company’s budgets to generate Internet leads using every possible ways and techniques to get a response from their prospective clients. It’s just normal to spend money on proven ways to get good sales but if the attempt doesn’t bring in customers then another way should be in the plan of the company to increase the sales. The life of the company depends on the volume of sales it creates on a regular basis so advertising and marketing should be dealt upon with smart planning and new strategies. 

Speak2Leads  knows the logic of excellent selling through lead response service and they offer a system that would be able to help in generating Internet leads. They provide a system that lets your sales team have an immediate conversation with the prospects right after they sent an inquiry. It allows the clients to respond faster too because the system informs the company of interested inquiries and calls the client immediately paving the way for a good conversation between the two. It’s like hitting the opportunity at the peak of interest of the prospective clients never missing the chance to have a good response from the sales which in turn will lead to a good sales conversion if the party is really interested and financially capable.

Cherry Mobile Omega HD 4GB

With the fast paced turnaround of technology these days you’ll wake up tomorrow and your precious expensive gadgets is on its way to depreciate its price.  Well it’s the trend of the times and many are crazy over the latest models of Apple and Samsung.  If you want to experience the power and best features of today’s smart phones but don’t want to spend on expensive gadgets you can set your eyes on affordable ones like My Phone and Cherry Mobile. 

Since I’ve already featured here my own My Phone A919 Duo and blogged about how I love its features I will now talk about my sister’s new phone.  She’s very particular with the brands of her gadgets and always pinning for top brands for her tablet and net book but this time she chooses Cherry Mobile Omega HD 4GB as she got good reviews from her IT colleagues in her work.  

Well I’ve used it myself after she bought it yesterday and I can say that the phone is almost the same as mine.  The only obvious difference is the size of the touch screen which is 5” aside from its camera which is higher than my 8MP.  It’s so thin and light and if you look for a nice shape of phone it’s for you.   That is if you’re feature conscious and not brand conscious.  I’ll still go for Samsung’s best phones if I have the budget but now it’s more practical to buy good quality affordable phones.

5 Money Saving Ideas for Home Business

If you are running a home based business, you are saving money already by not leasing a warehouse or office space. Transport to and from work is also not an issue. Money saved can be put into the growth of your business and boost the profit your business makes. Working from home saves you money at the outset, but there are many ways to implement further money saving ideas.



The internet provides many useful forums for free advertising. Take advantage of the social media sites to promote your business. Writing blogs or articles may also get your business noticed. Also have a go at networking. There are networking groups online, which will introduce to meetings and other likeminded people. Networking is a great way to promote your business.



A home business will need to use an accountant at the end of the financial year. Accountants charge for how long it takes them to go through all your paperwork. If you use a computer program and keep all your expenses and income up to date, the program can be forwarded to your accountant, which will make the accountant’s job much speedier. Likewise if you have all your receipts in a shoebox; discard that habit and enter everything into a computer program that your accountant uses.


Do it yourself

You probably have a wealth of talent but there is always something to learn. Instead of hiring someone to do certain tasks, why not learn how to do it yourself? This will increase your knowledge, you will have a better understanding of exactly what needs to be done and this is another skill that is now yours.


Make use of your computer

To save on postage costs, contact customers and send out informative newsletters by email. The internet is also a great way to order stock, organize any printing requirements and contact other businesses. Your computer gives you the flexibility to do these tasks at any time of the day or night.



It is wonderful that you have so much work coming in that you cannot keep up with it. To save time and allow you to concentrate on other facets of your home business, why not consider outsourcing. This can save on employee expenses, such as taxes. This is also a good opportunity to try freelance workers who should produce a quality product. You are also not tied into a contract and can outsource as frequently or as little as you require. 

Keep a detailed track of your budget and your spending. This way you can review your expenditure for each month and look at ways to further save money. It is important to install a money saving plan at the outset and stick to it. This can only be of benefit to your business. Rubber stamps are another great time saver. They are often good for up to 10,000 impressions and signature stamps can save a lot of time. Just make sure as your business takes off, you do not fall into frivolous spending of the profit made by your business. It is impossible to predict what lies ahead, so money saving ideas should be kept permanently in place.

5 Advantages of Using Cloud Storage for Your Business

You have probably heard a lot about Cloud storage in recent months, but you might not have started using it for your business yet. The truth is, however, that you can actually reap a lot of benefits by utilizing Cloud storage. Since there are plenty of affordable Cloud servers out there that offer affordable storage options, you should consider investing in one of these services so that you can reap these benefits and more.


Protect Yourself From Computer Issues

Even the newest of computers can be moody sometimes, and you never know when a computer might crash completely. This can be disastrous if all of your important files go with it, but you don't have to worry about this being an issue if you have all of your company's essential files stored on a Cloud server. Then, you will be able to quickly and easily download the files to another computer in your office when you need to.


Prepare for Disasters

Unfortunately, you never know when a flood, fire or other natural disaster might strike your office and take all of your computers with it, and you could find yourself in a mess if you depend on in-house storage and back-up options. If you store all of your company's files on a Cloud server along with on your computers and hard drives, you can access them if something happens to your office. Although you might still be left with a lot of things to worry about, losing all of your essential files won't be one of them.


Work from Home or While Traveling

You can't spend all of your time at the office, but this doesn't mean that you might not want to access some of your files while you are away from your desk. If you use Cloud storage, you can quickly and easily pull up all of your work-related files from anywhere in the world. This means that you can quickly get a bit of work done while you are relaxing at home, or you can feel free to travel without having to worry about missing out on any of your important work. It can also be very beneficial if you happen to forget to bring your files with you or if you don't feel like lugging around heavy paperwork.


Work With Colleagues and Business Partners

Sharing files and folders with people who are far away has always been a bit aggravating, but it can be easier than ever before if you use Cloud storage. With a Cloud storage option, you can share the log in information with business partners and colleagues so that you can collaborate with them from anywhere in the world. This also makes it easy to hire employees from all over instead of just in your local area. This potentially means you can run a large-scale business from your home office, using facilities such as Servcorp's serviced offices in Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne when you need to conduct face to face meetings.


Share Files With Clients

Depending on the line of work that you are in, you might need to share files with your clients every now and then. With Cloud storage, this is easy.

Better Printing Results

When we moved our office location to another business district area I thought that we’ll be away from the convenience of having easy to access shops that provide us office supplies and printing requirements. We often has urgent requirements for calling cards, brochures, banners and other marketing materials so it’s imperative that the shop is near our office for fast output results. 

I’m glad that I found an exact shop that offers the same services and has a store also that has the supplies we need for emergency requirements. We canvassed for some of our business card and brochure needs and they gave us a quote equal to our former supplier. It’s good knowing that even if we transferred to a higher level of business district we still have access to affordable shops that can provide us our needs for marketing materials. 

Now I’m looking for one who has web2print tools because I learned that with it they can do better printing outputs and lower costs too. If the tools can enhance printing business I was hoping that with them I can have our company’s brochures printed in the best way possible and with lower price as well.

Shopping for Nice High School Rings

High school is a period in my life that I will always remember because it has one of the best memories of friendship, school achievements and my youthful dreams. Up until now I was able to keep my friends in constant communication especially my best friend who never leaves my side up to this day. Those are the days as they call it and they’re worth remembering for. When I watch graduation ceremonies in secondary schools memories keep coming through and I can’t help looking back where my dreams started. 

Oh I just love beautiful memories of my childhood and teenage years and it kept me inspired until I finished college and started working. I wish I have one of those class rings which some students find it necessary to own one to make their school memories lasting. Well maybe it’s not too late for my daughters to have one when the time will come that they graduate from high school. I’m searching for nice ones to give as my gift to them for being good in endeavoring to make their own dreams come true.

Advantages of Hybrid Cars

Due to the rising awareness of environmental problems caused by pollution and the rising cost of fuel, car owners are looking for alternative solutions to save money. Cars are almost a basic need for most families, being a means of transportation to go to work or school.

People are now switching to hybrid cars. It is their choice to be more responsible for the environment. They also know it’s the most practical choice in the long run because it’s economical – it doesn’t run on fuel or gasoline.

Hybrid cars can be electric hybrid ones or water hybrid ones. As the name suggests, electric hybrid cars are those that can both run on gasoline and electricity. Water hybrid vehicles on the other hand are those that can run on hydrogen and gasoline. Water, in this case is not the actual fuel, but the hydrogen extracted from water through electrolysis.

The two advantages you can clearly see when buying hybrid cars are 1) it  saves gas and 2) it is environmentally friendly. But you should also take note that there are tax incentives for hybrid car owners.

Due to world political pressures around the world to reduce greenhouse emissions, President Bush signed an agreement in 2005 to provide huge tax relief to hybrid car buyers. The tax incentive varies by model and are based on two factors

1. How fuel efficient the hybrid car is compared to a conventional car in 2002 with the same weight class.
2. How much gasoline the hybrid car can save in its lifetime compared with an equivalent conventional car
