The Future of Sales Communications is Now Here

Aug 17, 2007
Imagine, for a moment, that you have a futuristic machine. This machine allows you to sit at your desk in your home or office, push a button, and, magically, you appear in front of your prospects, clients, employees and business contacts, regardless of where they are located in the world!

You did not have to get in your car and drive, burning up $3.00 per gallon of gas; you did not have to take off your shoes to get on an airplane, where you are lucky to get a bag of peanuts to eat, all the while knowing that you did not pay "peanuts" for the pleasure; and you did not have to stay overnight in a strange hotel away from your family and friends. Sounds almost too good to be true, doesn't it?

Believe it or not, this machine already exists. Not only does it already exist, but you probably have one sitting on your desk right now.

That's right, with your humble computer, you can visit with your prospects, clients, employees and business contacts, thanks to a web based Video Conferencing solution.

Using a web based Video Conferencing solution allows you to work with all major operating systems - Windows, Mac & Linux, providing all parties the ability to effectively communicate via the Internet, without the need to download, install or configure software.

Some online conferencing solutions also include powerful collaboration tools such as desktop/application sharing and PowerPoint presentations (without the necessity to upload any files).

If you are selling goods or services, web based Video Conferencing can improve your bottom line by boosting sales and lowering costs. Here are five reasons why this is so:

1. Online Video Conferencing allows you to meet with more prospective clients

Web based Video Conferencing cuts down on your time, expense and lost productivity and allows you the opportunity to meet with more clients than you ever could by trying to visit with them all physically.

2. Online Video Conferencing allows your prospects to put a face with the voice over the phone

Think of what you could achieve if your prospects and clients could see you by simply opening their browser and entering a few mouse clicks and keystrokes! People prefer to deal with people, rather than faceless voices. Web based Video Conferencing allows you to project your warmth and sincerity and enhance whatever selling skills you already possess.

3. Online Video Conferencing allows you to get together with more decision makers

Many purchasing decisions require the input of more than one person, and web based Video Conferencing allows you to get all the decision makers together in one meeting regardless of where they are in the world, allowing you to shorten the time necessary to close complex transactions involving the input of several parties.

4. Online Video Conferencing allows you to expand your territory

No longer are you constrained by how far you are able to drive in a day. With web based Video Conferencing you can expand your customer base to the entire world, without leaving the comfort of your office or home.

5. Online Video Conferencing allows you to offer better after-sales service

Web based Video Conferencing opens up great service opportunities. Your technicians can "visit" your clients online. Some systems even allow a person in one office to remotely "take over" and operate a computer in another office, giving your prospects one more reason to want to buy from you.

Once you try your hand at it, you will probably be able to add a few more points to this list by devising new ways to improve sales and customer service using web based Video Conferencing. Yes, with web based Video Conferencing, not only is the future of sales communications now here, but it also looks very bright!
