What Strategy Will Be Used?

Podcast with Jon Arnold on Hosted UC

Renewals and Retention

November 15, 2010

As an Agent are you actively working to retain your customers? Are you working on renewals for contracts ending? If not, commissions will end and the account will be taken over by a corporate salesperson.

"When a MetTel account falls into "Renewal Status" or month-to-month rates/terms, unless an Agent can show an active/current role in trying to "renew" a term on the client, MetTel's internal renewal group will begin to do so, which will forfeit the Agent's commission."

Rural ILEC Strategy

November 12, 2010

You have probably read about the unemployment rate. I would love to know how many jobs that the ILEC's have shed in the last 3 years. 75,000? Probably more.

My Take on Stocks

November 10, 2010

So "BroadSoft Inc.(BSFT) shares climbed 43% after the voice-enabling software company reported third-quarter earnings that exceeded estimates," according to MarketWatch. Total revenue increased 22% year-to-year to $22.3 million; up 13% from the second quarter of 2010. License revenue increased 27% year-to-year to $12.9 million; up 22% growth from Q2 2010.

The Buzz around Hosted UC is certainly up, driven by such companies as Polycom and its PR machine.

If Only the Presenters Improved

I organize a few events. I present at a few conferences. And I attend about 15 each year. I rarely sit through a whole presentation. Why?

Ask Gives Up (and other news)

November 9, 2010

A bunch of stuff from my twitter feed, which produces all those useless facts in my head (and distracts me all day).

Ask.com gives up on search [RRW] they will just do Q&A (for now).

Twilio raises $12 million to let you call from web apps to phones. [venturebeat] Twilio is a 2x sponosr of StartupCamp Communications.

Big Challenge Selling Hosted PBX

November 9, 2010

On LinkedIn (in the Hosted PBX group), the question was asked, "What's the biggest challenge you face selling your solution to end users and/or channel partners?" Here are some of the answers.

Can the end user trust the service delivery of the provider? This is a big question because there have been some failures in VoIP delivery over the years. VoIP has taken somewhat of a reputation hit.

TV, IPTV and OTT

November 8, 2010

I am hearing so much about cable TV subscriber losses and over-the-top video and cord cutters that I have to weigh in. Rich Tehrani and Gary Kim make some points in their latest blogs, but here's my opinion.

Surveying 2,000 people about cable TV is insignificant. NCTA members pass 127.8 million homes, so 2000 is a pin drop.

What's With Clearwire?

November 7, 2010


What's up with Clearwire? It started out as a McGraw deal with big investors: Top 5 cable companies, Sprint, Intel and Google. (Did you know that Telesphere's CEO Clark Peterson was President of Clearwire and one of Clearwire's founders?)

Clearwire has about 100 MHz of spectrum pretty much nationwide. That's a huge asset.
