No One Buys Without Trust

March 11, 2011

In this second podcast with TMC's CEO, Rich Tehrani, we discuss Branding, Thought Leadership and Lead Gen.

When companies market, they expect the phone to ring and sales to be made. If only it were that simple. There are different kinds of Marketing - Advertising, PR, press releases, cause marketing, guerrilla, and more - most of which are designed to be Attention grabbers or Disruptive to the prospect.

Thoughts on Deploying Cloud

March 7, 2011


In this 13 minute interview with Dale Frohman of The Frohman Group , we discuss Cloud Deployment in the business.

Deployment of Cloud services is much easier in the small business space (under 100 employees), because typically this is not a complex network infrastructure. The first hurdle to Cloud Deployment is the complexity of the network environment.

Some systems just can not be moved to a cloud platform.

My EarthLink Strategy

March 4, 2011

When I analyze the four CLEC components of the new EarthLink Business, I wonder what Atlanta will do with it.

Deltacom had a huge fiber network (IFN) that essentially went under-utilized. In my experience, many employees did not know about IFN. Assets like lit buildings, collocations, colo gear, and the fiber maps are crucial to revenue generation from those hard cost assets.

Big Q: How Do I ...

March 2, 2011

So a big question I get from service providers is How Do I Sell Online? This question comes in many forms, such as (1) How Can I Sell This on my Website?; (2) How Can I be like RingCentral?; (3) How do I sell more on the web?; (4) What's that SEO thing?

Let's tackle the SEO thing first. (You can hear Rich Tehrani and I talk about SEO here).  Search engine optimization is about helping your website show up during one of the 31B searches done every month.

Why Do I Have To Give You That Info Again?

March 1, 2011

Speaking with Fonolo CEO Shai Berger and I were talking last night about Call Centers and the lousy customer satisfaction. All the M&A activity creates pockets of technology and data and apps that cannot integrate easily with other pockets of apps, systems, data.

For example, a customer calls an 800 number of a company that bought two companies - and integration is complete. Except it isn't. The company uses a couple of call centers to fulfill customer service.

The Hosted UC Script

I'm at Enterprise Connect (formerly VoiceCon) where the talk is all about CLOUD. (Surprise!) Cloud Communications from Cisco, Avaya, Shoretel (Untangling Complexity), Microsoft Lync, Sprint, IBM, Smoothstone, XO and Verizon. I didn't see a MITEL booth but at least 5 MITEL folks are speaking. Dan York is here.

Dash CS to Bandwidth.com

February 28, 2011

Image via Wikipedia

DASH Carrier Services, a provider of E-911 and other services to the ITSP sector, was acquired by Bandwidth.com. Interestingly, Bandwidth.com used to be the provider of VoIP origination and termination services for many VoIP providers, but since gaining the Google Voice contract has lost many customers due to a lack of support. To be fair, if you have one ivory whale like GV, and get another (Verizon), the rest of the pack are just minnows. Now they will get those minnows back with the purchase of DASH.

Already my phone is ringing with questions about replacements for DASH, since providers that left BW don't want to go back.

Andy thinks this means an IPO coming for Bandwidth.com.
