Dave McBride on Outlier Magazine – Mango Voice Phones Podcast

Mango Voice Phones Podcast

Mango Voice’s co-founder and CEO, Dave Mcbride, was interviewed by Outlier Magazine in episode 401 of the Outlier podcast. In this interview with Ever Gonzales, he covers the secrets to his success and how Mango Voice is different than other VoIP phone system solutions on this Mango Voice Phones Podcast.

The Outlier podcast features interviews with entrepreneurs and “disruptors” in their respective industries who are taking a different approach to business. These business minded founders and individuals are breaking the status quo and changing the world. This Mango Voice Phones Podcast is no different. They take their conversation from personal to business covering all the ins and outs of the business.

 

“There is nothing better than coming home after a long day at the office and having children get excited to see me.” – Dave McBride

 

Dave McBride got his start as an entrepreneur mowing lawns. His early years encompassed several small startups. He later found himself in the world of technology. After starting an internet service provider company, Dave found that many of his clients didn’t have a basic phone system to serve their respective operations. Since McBride had all the resources and technology to customize a business phone system for his clients, he did just that. From there, Mango Voice was born.

McBride also covers other key elements to his success by discussing barriers to his success, operations challenges and how he has overcome these obstacles. Dave has always carried with him a desire to keep his customers happy and show them he is listening to their requests. This has greatly contributed to the success of Mango Voice by allowing them to create a customized solution that truly sets them apart in the industry of business phone systems.

Mango Voice has always been clearly separated from other VoIP phone systems by providing a much more simple solution to phone systems. Mango Voice not only provides a simple solution, but it also boasts the best features in the industry. This phone system is scalable, affordable, feature-rich and easy to use.

Are you still using a business landline for your phone?

Land Line Business Phone

Are you still using a business landline for your phone?

Anyone out there still using a business landline for their phone? If so you should know that you are paying 30% more a month for your dial tone with half the benefit. VoIP Business phone services are the future and if you are not using it you should be unless you have a terrible internet connection or an outdated network 🙁 ! Mango Voice offers over 100 features with no limitations at an affordable price.

Imagine a business phone system that guarantees your customers, patients or clients would be greeted perfectly every time, and always got a chance to speak with someone. What would that do for your business? Do you currently have reports telling you how many calls you are missing on a daily basis? If not Mango Voice can help you with that.

Imagine no more busy signals or straight to voicemail’s when all of your business landlines are busy. Mango Voice features unlimited lines on a cloud-based phone system, free long distance and customized greetings along with an online self-management portal that is simple to use. You can also forward calls to your cell phone using find me follow me. Find me follow me allows a caller to call directly into your office phone first, then, if you are not at your desk after a set amount of seconds/rings the call will then forward automatically to your cell phone which equals more answered calls which means more closed business and happier customers.

There is a 15% chance of earning their business unless you get back to them in under 5 minutes.  However, even within 5 minutes, there’s an 80% chance that customer has already pulled up 5 other competitors of yours on their cell phone.
Has anyone called a business landline recently and was greeted with a busy signal or was sent straight to voicemail? I know I have and I thought, “hmm did I call the right number?” or “has the number been disconnected?” The truth is, if your customers are getting busy signals or voicemail’s without the opportunity to speak to someone there is a 15% chance of earning their business unless you get back to them in under 5 minutes. However, even within 5 minutes, there’s an 80% chance that customer has already pulled up 5 other competitors of yours on their cell phone.

Another example, I just signed up a customer who was still using landlines, they were paying $70 a month per line for 5 phone lines including a fax, and they used 10 phones at their office. I was able to cut their monthly bill by 43%. They were paying $396….now they’re paying $225. Plus, instead of just having 5 lines, they now have unlimited lines, free long distance and over 50 other enterprise features to help them grow their business! 

 

If a VoIP business phone service has been on your radar now is the time to invest in your new Mango Voice VoIP phone system. My name is Jonathan Karren and I would love the opportunity to be a part of making your business great!

Top 3 Mistakes Businesses Make With VOIP Business Phone Service

voip business phone service

Get a better VOIP business phone service with Mango Voie

Business owners make mistakes. A lot. Some of the most costly mistakes end up being those corners cut in customer service. The most popular way people communicate with a business is by phone. If those phones are slow to connect, have terrible quality or if they drop calls… your customers will not be happy. VOIP business phone service is a step in the right direction, but even still, business owners make mistakes when choosing the right service for their business. Here are the top 3 most costly mistakes business owners make with their VOIP business phone service.

Number 1 : Your VOIP Business Phone Service Doesn’t Do That…

All VOIP business phone services are not created equally! Just because you signed up for a VOIP phone system, doesn’t mean you will get all of the great features that your company needs to run efficiently. There is an endless list of features that your VOIP business phone service is capable of having. Some of our favorite Mango Voice VOIP business phone service features include:

  • iOS and Android App for your Mobile Phone
  • Simple User Interface
  • Drag and Drop
  • Redundancy
  • Increased Up Time
  • Cloud-Based Phone System
  • Multiple Locations
  • API Integration
  • On-site Training
  • CRM Integration
  • No Maintenance Fees
  • Find Me / Follow Me Call Forwarding
  • Unlimited Minutes For Business
  • Reports & Analytics
  • Visual Dial Plan Editor
  • Auto Attendant
  • Voicemail to Email
  • Call Parking
  • Conference Rooms
  • Call Queues
  • Fax to Email
  • Call Recording
  • Schedule Based Call Routing
  • Music On Hold
  • Advertisement Tracking
  • Local Presence
  • Intercom Paging
  • Ring Groups
  • ….. And more in development!

Are you seeing this list? It’s huge! We can’t ever pick just one or two favorite features. Each one makes the business run so much smoother. Now, let’s visit another VOIP business phone service company and see what features they have…. Hm… Oh, nope. They don’t have that one, or the next one, or even the one after that! This is why going with the wrong VOIP business phone service without all the great features is one of the biggest mistakes a business owner can make.

I can already hear the critics… “But what does it matter if they don’t have fax to email? I have a fax machine!” To this, I simply say, “Oh dear.” Life in the technology age is really so much better. Relying on outdated technology is another big, huge, mistake. But this kind of thinking is what brings us to the second biggest, most costly mistakes a business owner can make.

  • Take away for Number 1: Research features! Make sure you know what features you want and need in a VOIP business phone service.

Number 2 : The other guys say you have to do WHAT to set up your new phone system?

Setting up your new cloud-based phone system with the wrong company can be pretty complicated. Ya, they come with instructions, but so does all that fun furniture at the Ikea stores. It’s just not right now similar the instructions for building a sofa can compare to getting your new VOIP business phone system up and running with the wrong phone provider. VOIP business phones service is not the same at each company you work with. As we demonstrated with the long list of features that Mango Voice offers its’ customers, the setup process can be much different with other companies, too.

Mango Voice realized that getting your VOIP business phone service set up doesn’t have to be complicated. We don’t include a 50-page instruction manual with your phones. Although I’m sure if you wanted one from the phone manufacturer, we could find one for you. We only send a simple sheet with 4 steps on it to get your phones set up and an easy to understand diagram to show you what to plug in.

Getting started with Mango Voice has four simple steps:

  1. Contact Your Onboarding Specialist.You’ll have a dedicated specialist that has extensive knowledge of the system ask you a few quick questions to ensure we get the right phone sent to your business. Your VOIP business phone service is then programmed before it is shipped out to your location. In some cases, we can overnight phones and have you fully set up within a day.
  2. Connect Your Phones.When you get the phones, you’ll need to attach the cord to the handset and plugin the device to a power sourcTheTeh next step is to plug the ethernet (internet) cable into the phone. Really, it’s that easy.
  3. Training.Our long list of features is very impressive, but it takes a little familiarity for them to become second nature with a new VoIP business phone service. We offer training over the phone, in person or via video conference. We also provide training videos. We can also take care of transferring your existing phone numbers over into our system so you don’t have to re-print all of your marketing materials. We’ll take care of you!
  4. Pick up your phone, it’s ringing!After a few simple steps, your cloud-based phone system is ready to use. Don’t be surprised if your phone starts ringing right away! Getting up and running is a simple and easy process with Mango Voice. See… it’s simple.
  • Take away for Number 2: Phone set up really can be simple! Make sure your VOIP business phone system is easy to set up.

Number 3 : Are you spending all day on the phone… with technical support?

One thing that business owners do not have time for… long technical support calls. You’ve done it before, called into a technical support line. Waited. Pressed 1 for English. Pressed 0 for an operator. Pressed 1 to confirm that you wanted to speak with an operator. Pressed 1 to confirm that you wanted to speak with the operator in English. The operator comes on the line and asks how they can help only to pass you on to another department that has another wait. Waiting. Waiting.

The thing about all this waiting is that it wouldn’t be too frustrating if it was worth the wait, right? But then when you finally get someone on the line, they seem to question everything you are asking… like they were just hired… and then they have to put you on another hold because they have to go ask if they still service the phone you are calling from…. sound familiar?

Ok, look. We get it. Technical support can be complicated, especially in complex situations. This is another advantage to using Mango Voice and their VOIP Business phone services. We have support personnel readily available for your company. We do have resources online and videos, but when you call Mango Voice, you’re going to get a knowledgeable support person that knows your company and can easily answer your questions. We recognize you don’t have time to sit on frustrating support calls, so we do our best to be as easy to work with and as easy to understand as possible.

It’s time for a change.

Have you ever heard the saying, “Innovate or die”? It’s especially true for businesses and technology. But don’t take our word for it. In Business Insider’s article they outline why it is critical for business owners to innovate and embrace the changing technologies:

We should be most concerned about companies that are currently successful that do not have innovation ingrained in the fabric of their businesses. They are the ones that need to avoid the FDH (fat, dumb, and happy) syndrome, try new things and not rest on their laurels. They have to risk failure to continue to achieve great success. They should know that survival today requires more than treading water, and that many of the companies that were once great are now gone or on their way out largely because they stopped innovating. In fact, according to Forbes, the average lifespan of a successful S&P 500 Company was 67 years in the 1920’s. Today it is 15 years. More companies need to innovate to improve these declining numbers.

http://www.businessinsider.com/innovate-or-die-a-mantra-for-every-business-2013-7

We understand that technology is hard to keep up with. We’re focused on it all day, every day, so understanding comes a little easier to those of us in this industry. That feeling of discomfort with change may be uncomfortable for a moment, but when your revenues start increasing and your customers cheer in excitement because they are reaching you more often, and faster, then business owners realize what a great step it is to invest in updated phone service technology.

We really can help!

Lack of understanding doesn’t need to hold you back. We can simplify this complex topic which really isn’t as complex as most people think. Let’s take, well, Mango Voice as an example. When you work with Mango Voice, we have the best team around. You’ll work with a call specialist that will assess the needs of your business, take down all the details and find the right customized system for your company or small business. After that assessment, your boss’s jaw will drop when you tell them just how affordable this enterprise-grade phone solution is. We package up your phones in a box, you receive them, plug them in and start answering calls. It’s that easy.

Mistakes happen. Some of the best lessons come from making the occasional mistake. But if we can help save you from making the mistake of choosing the wrong VOIP business phone service, then let us help! We love working with businesses in a variety of industries. We’ve helped dentists, lawyers, technology companies, schools and even government agencies all upgrade to the best VOIP business phone service around. We’d love to work with you.

Introducing Mango Voice 3.0 – A More Efficient Cloud-Based Phone System

Mango Voice is simply rocking the business world with its’ most efficient cloud-based phone system yet. Our latest update, nicknamed “Mango Voice 3.0” is boasting stellar speeds, more efficient data balancing, and more redundancy. This latest update looks to solve common problems that most people find when working with a cloud-based phone system. Businesses can’t afford downtime, dropped calls, poor call quality or any data loss. Our already impeccable system has now been packed with a powerhouse of features to ensure any of these poor call patterns won’t happen to a Mango Voice client.

Mango Voice provides simple phone systems with little to no headache to set up. Now, that sounds fantastic. Get even more piece of mind knowing that Mango Voice is staying on top of the game by integrating all of the latest technology into our best yet cloud-based phone system. We’ll cover some of the cool features our latest update brings to the table. Don’t worry, you won’t be tested on any of the technical stuff.

 

Seamless Redundancy, A Cloud-Based Phone System Feature

Redundancy is a great feature for your phone server, NOT in your business phone conversations. Ok, so the kind of redundancy we’re actually referring to isn’t the act of repeating yourself over and over again on the phone, but rather packing your small business phone system with a powerhouse of goods. Seamless redundancy, in terms of your phone servers that power up your cloud-based phone system, is the ability to copy your information from one server to another server.

To understand how redundancy works best, we’ll use an example of one way we used to balance phone calls through our system setup that utilizes two servers. Server A and Server B lined up to manage your calls. Should anything happen to Server A, like maybe it’s getting too busy and slowing down, Server B should have a synced copy of information so that it can kick in and handle the extra load. That’s one way to look at redundancy. Two redundant servers with the same information.

The Problem:

Server A acts as the “hot” or “active” server most of the time. The this is set up, it makes essentially every server is an “A” server with live communications between many servers spread out across the US. Your business can connect to any one without skipping a beat. There are a couple of drawbacks to this setup.

  1. Downtime is a little more possible if any data communication loss occurs between the servers.
  2. This design does not include completely seamless redundancy.
  3. Transferring data is not as fast.

 

The problem with this redundancy technique between two servers is that there are only two points of success. Should both servers get bogged down, downtime is more possible. There are also issues with this setup because it exposes any weakness in the communication between the two servers. If you have a slow internet connection or any data loss between Server A and Server B, then they may not sync up exactly. This is where problems abide.

Introducing A Better Cloud-Based Phone System With Mango Voice 3.0

Mango Voice knows how to handle its data. But now, we are handling it with even more efficiency than ever. We’ve beefed up our cloud-based phone system with the latest and greatest technology. We’ve updated our system to integrate dynamic router negotiation with our phone servers. Remember old Server A and Server B? Gone. We now have a figurative wheel of phone servers, integrating together instantaneously in a circle of data. Information gets spun around the wheel so that there is higher redundancy between each data point, no more data loss and a significant reduction in any downtime. Instead of just two points of data, we now have multiple servers passing information.

Mango Voice 3.0’s new cloud-based phone system is zippy. It’s not your grandma’s phone switchboard. Bringing information into the cloud, we are able to manipulate the data faster. Mango Voice can now manage data and ensure the greatest call quality for your small business. Mango Voice doesn’t overcomplicate a good thing. Our phones are still simplified out of the box and ready to plug right in. While all this technology talk may sound complicated, all you have to do is unbox and plug it in. We really do give you a simplified business phone system.

Mango Voice 3.0 Cloud-Based Phone System

 

Advantages of the new Mango Voice 3.0:

  1. Less downtime.Downtime can hurt call volumes and terminate calls prematurely. With this phone system in place, calls are routed to an available phone server and passed through available systems quickly. This prevents downtime and ensures calls are successful.
  2. No syncing issues.Syncing between two servers that aren’t always in full communication was the weak link in the A and B server scenario. Here, there are no syncing issues because the data is being passed through the loop all the time, immediately.
  3. Dynamic router negotiation.The phone system has a router with dynamic programming allowing it to find the best route for the information to pass through to your network. This makes setup even more of a breeze.
  4. Truly cloud-based.Servers that are based in “the cloud” are on a network that enables lightning-fast speeds and quick transfer of data. Cloud-based systems are also easy to access from any physical location at any time.
  5. Seamless redundancy. Seamless redundancy is the instantaneous communication between all phone servers at the same time. This prevents data loss and ensures all systems are up to date.

Load Balancing – The Key To Saving Data

So while our new system sounds amazing, and it is, the key to making it faster and more efficient is the way we load balance your data. Have you ever done a load of laundry and then walked away only to hear a loud “thud, thud, thud,” that intensifies as your clothes start spinning faster in the cycle? An off-balanced load of laundry is just as annoying as poorly balanced data in a server. It’s not efficient.

mango-voice-load-balancing

With our circle of redundancy, we are also able to load balance the data as we receive it. What this means is during those busy call times, we are able to distribute the congestion evenly across multiple points to ensure no calls drop, there is no loss in speed and everything operates as it should.

This system is truly cloud-based. By load balancing through dynamic router negotiation, there are no more syncing issues or loss of data. Our routers can adjust to handle increased call volume by analyzing how each piece is altering the data. It then is programmed to hand it off in the same way it was received. This structure also works with your systems firewalls so that we don’t have to alter anything inside of your security features to have it work effectively with the router. Having multiple data points dramatically reduces downtime.

Phones. Made Simple.

We know you have a choice when it comes to VOIP Phone Systems for business. Mango Voice prides itself on giving you all the big brand features with a small company touch. When you contact Mango Voice, you talk to real people. We want each of our clients to feel valued and taken care of. Our cloud-based phone systems deliver efficiency and great quality.

Look, if it was so easy to turn a dime, everyone would be a business owner. Truth is, making money can be complicated. The business phone system part doesn’t need to be! There are a lot of acronyms to memorize (or pretend like you know), forms to fill out, and bills to pay. I’m sure you’ve seen PBX, ISP, VoIP… what do all these business phone system acronyms mean?  Don’t over complicate things with complex solutions and rooms full of servers. Sometimes it helps to gain a little perspective. Take a step back and evaluate things from a different angle. Let’s discuss 4 simple steps to simplify your business and get ahead of the game.

The Evolution of the Business Phone System

I still remember my first job years back and the scary server room. It buzzed and emitted heat. We employed a part-time technician to oversee our phone servers and he performed miracles that still have me dumbfounded. And yet those phones still glitched out, went down, had moments of terrible quality and at times the caller id (ya, remember that?) wouldn’t work so I felt totally blind as the secretary.

The new business phone systems are on another level. No more server rooms and part-time magician/technicians. Now those talented people are making features in the cloud and we’re all enjoying them instantly with no downtime and effortless calling. And the quality? It’s amazing. And if I’m chewing too loud to catch the last few digits of that very important number? I have that call recorded. It’s everything. Let’s discuss some of the key features that you can’t live without and why the new business phone systems are what you need in your life.

Business owners, take notes. We’ll look at making communicating with your customers easy, more efficient and that only increases the black numbers on your tax forms. We’ll not only cover some of the confusing details in the business phone system world, but we’ll also try to help explain some general tips to making business life a little easier.

Here are 4 Steps to Simplify Your Business:

  1. Streamline your communication systems.
  2. Consolidate services.
  3. Keep relationships that return value.
  4. Utilize new technology – stay up to date!

 

Streamline Your Communication Systems

If you aren’t communicating with your customers or clients, you probably aren’t doing business. Luckily, communicating in our modern world couldn’t be any easier. In fact, with VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) business phone systems from Mango Voice, you can have an entirely customizable business phone system in place tomorrow. Not kidding. It’s plug and play. Not only is it super easy to set up, as in take the phone out of the box and plug it in, but you can also utilize cutting edge technology with a very user-friendly interface.

Part of streamlining your communication systems also means updating some of your old practices. Instead of having your business phone ring and ring and ring with no answer, your phone number can now ring to your cell phone. It can also ring to your assistant’s cell phone. Better yet, the business phone system that Mango Voice has to make all this happen is drag and drop.

Features like “Drag and Drop” make using Mango Voice so easy. This image shows one example of just how easy it can be to set up and auto attendant for an example business phone system.

Another example of streamlining communication: Fax. Yes, we know you “business types” still use it. Yes, we know it uses a phone line. But did you know that we have an awesome solution for that, too? Fax to email. No messy papers cluttering your office! You can still play nice with the companies, affiliates, clients and customers that love to fax and we won’t tell them how easy we’ve made if for you to fax correspondence to them while you are sipping your coffee with your feet up.

Consolidate Your Services

Which really just means that you don’t want to go to twelve different places when you can go to 4 and get the same stuff. Once you find a reliable ISP (here we go with acronyms, don’t say I didn’t warn you. This one is “Internet Service Provider” in case you haven’t memorized it and aced the quiz yet), there are many services that you can utilize from that one connection. You no longer need a separate phone line. Consolidating to one line means less wire to run and more functionality. Remember that fax line we just talked about? That’s right! You really don’t need it! There are many services that operate “in the cloud”. Instead of keeping discs or buying expensive software, now companies sell subscriptions to their cloud-based software or services through cloud servers. There aren’t server farms actually located in the heavens but people have founds ways to consolidate services and the savings there can be heavenly. Instead of having several personal servers, they all got together to form a business to host professional servers for others to utilize. This means less downtime, more security, and better service. It’s a win for everyone.

Finding services that are cloud-based saves money, time and provides an ease of use for more users. Mango Voice is proud to offer a business phone system that is cloud-based so we can do all of the above and then some to save you, the business owner, time and money. We can offer a huge list of features and include it with every single customer’s service and it’s no extra cost. You get all the functionality that you can dream of, customize and tailor to fit your unique business flow all because our software is up and ready to go when you are. This also means that all those lame technical glitches that you may have experienced with business phone systems in the past are non-existent. Support is stellar, no downtime, what more could you need?

Keep Relationships That Return Value

Number 3; keep relationships that return value. One thing that Mango Voice prides itself on is providing an excellent product but an even more excellent experience. We’ve thought of every problem and found the solution. Because of that, the relationship that we have with each of our clients and customers is very synchronous. We work well together. We’re also big thinkers but we’re not bound down by large corporate bullies so we can actually do what we say we’re going to do when we say we’re going to do it. It’s just good business.  By doing business with companies like ours, your business will profit not only because you’ll be making more money, but because we can’t help but spread the seeds of success to everyone we work with.

So to put it simply, we deliver an excellent product, so you can deliver excellent service. Communication is key to delivering the best customer service, especially when you are doing business over the phone. With VoIP services like Mango Voice and all the customizable features that are included, you can truly meet your potential in optimal communication with your customer base.

Utilize New Technology – Stay Up To Date

Last but not least, let’s talk tech. I know, its hard to stay on top of all the new technology. Despite the ever-changing industry, it is wise to stay up to date on all the tech trends. The newer technology is more intuitive than ever and doesn’t take quite that much effort to adjust to.  Then add all of the new features that come with it and you won’t even have to think about business phone systems, it will just be second nature.

Let’s say, for example, your business has a heavy focus on sales. You have a small sales team with 3-4 sales people that you’d like to share incoming calls with. With other business phone systems, you may start to encounter trouble right from the word go. But with Features like “Call Queues” with Mango Voice, this is actually no problem at all. You can set your team up to “round robin” with the phones, have the system ring the sales person with the least amount of talk time first, start with the sales person that has had the fewest calls or assign a specific ring order based on your custom specifications. Now your sales team will get calls fairly and you don’t have to worry about how to break up phone calls.

Running a business can be difficult, but answering your phones doesn’t have to be. Be smart, let us help you make the most of your communication time with your over-the-phone customers. Setup is painless, it won’t break your budget and the list of features will make the transition worth it! Every business owner needs the right business phone system to save them time and deliver the best service.

How Your Phone System Can Increase Your Marketing Effectiveness By 400%

Increase your Marketing effectiveness by 400%

Case Study – Home Remodeling Company

Infinity by Marvin Dealer has been in the home remodeling business for 30 years. They have used varied marketing techniques including call center selling teams with sophisticated dialers and other phone systems to increase their dialing effectiveness. In a recent meeting with their call center agents, they noticed a heightened level of enthusiasm and energy because their appointment set rate (the rate at which they can successfully schedule an appointment) had increased tremendously! A review of their processes and systems, revealed an amazing and unique contributor to the changes in sales team dynamics.

You see, in recent weeks, management subscribed to Mango Voice’s Local Presence service. Mango Voice Local Presence service enables a company to dynamically change their caller ID to a local area code instead of showing a 1-800 number when a call center agent calls a customer. This small, inexpensive yet dynamic change has yielded incredible results!

The first measurable difference was a dramatic increase in the contact rate (the percentage of customer answering their phone). Infinity by Marvin Dealer saw their contact rate go from 10% to 40% immediately! In other words, customers were more likely to answer the phone when a local number appeared on their caller ID.

The company also noticed a significant difference in customer attitudes on the phone. They found that when customers answered a call from a local number, they were less guarded and more friendly. Customers were more receptive and agents were able to have more positive interactions with customers. Agent productivity increased through positive energy and greater enthusiasm, which contributed to more sales opportunities and future contacts.

The local presence service provided by Mango Voice gave the company greater credibility and increased their immediate value to the customer. In addition, customers did not question the agent as to the location of the company or the company’s ability to serve their needs. These two factors led to a 400 % increase in the number of appointment set by agents. The return call rate from customers who missed the initial contact call also increased to a rate nearly 3.5 times greater than previous return call rates. This means that customers were more likely to call a local number back when the call was missed.

Local Presence service by Mango Voice was a critical tool for increased revenues and sales opportunities for Infinity by Marvin Dealer and it will work for your business too!
