How to Turn Free Calls into Paid Calls That Make You Money
A lot of things are offered free on the internet. There’s free content, free software, free music, free videos, and whatnot. In phone marketing, there are free calls that some businesses offer to attract potential customers to their business. When a customer wants to ask questions, most businesses are more than willing to provide answers and give customers free access to make a quick call. Some companies even offer free calls 24/7 as part of their tech support service. Either way, these free calls, which uses valuable time and manpower, cost money.
We know that your goal is to always offer value, but there comes a point where free services can affect your bottom line. When you constantly give away services for free, whether it’s personal advice, psychic readings or tech support, you diminish the value of your service. People simply don’t value something when they get it for free. They simply lose the drive to pay for it even if they can afford to do so.
I’m not suggesting that you charge your customers an unreasonable amount of money to make up for all those free calls. What I’m saying is you can charge a small amount of money per minute or per call. The going rate is $2.99 per minute with some lines exceeding $4.99 per minute. The goal is not to make money at once but slowly build up your revenue one call at a time. People who need your service will most likely be willing to pay for it.
