They’re everywhere!

Something happened this summer, Apple released their new iPhone 4, I didn’t think much of it at first. Then we decided to switch contracts from Verizon to AT&T. We all just got our new iPhone 4’s and I was seriously skeptical. I wasn’t sure I wanted to get one to be honest. I feared it would get broken or be another toy I would tire of quickly and it is far to expensive to justify that.

However, something surprising has happened, I got mine at the end of July, a month and half before anyone else did on our plan. Not being much of a phone person I was particularly leery but was talked into the purchase because if I did not like the phone I could pass it to one of my coworkers when they got to go get their phones next month. (Sometimes being the boss is good!) Time came to order their phones in and I found I was still using my phone consistently because of all the various apps and the convenience of being able to know any time an email came in regardless of where I was.

I have gone from being a skeptic to a believer and would highly recommend this phone to others. I still may not overly be a phone person but with all the applications available this phone endears itself to its owners. I know I am not the only one to feel this way either, you see these phones every where you go. As a matter of fact I notice more when peoples’ phones aren’t an iPhone.

So, I hear many of you wondering how this ties into your business? These phones make it a world easier to have contact to your customers at your finger tips. I can make it to where every time your contact form is filled out it can send you a text! You can immediately follow up on leads. When an order is placed, that can be texted to you as well. You can check your email or even have your phone notify you when you receive an email. Even better you can view your websites google analytics from your phone to monitor traffic, or tweet/post your little heart out with these babies. For those of you taking my advise to blog on your website, you can write and upload blogs from your iPhone with amazing efficiency. It is fantastic, even for video blogging! It is no wonder everyone is under this spell.
