Behind the Secenes Aggregator and Enabler Success


DIDx, an Example of Aggregator of and Enabler for User Success

You don’t have to invent, reinvent, or create anything new, really. You don’t have to adopt the latest technologies, apps, and devices to be cool, respected and sought out for business. There is another way to do business. Make it easy for any group of people to do the things they want to do most and/or use the services that make easier for you to do the things you want to more easily.

DidXchange is an example of a platform that aggregates the world of phone numbers and enables wholesale buyers and sellers of USA and international phone numbers to conduct business with more ease, lower costs and less time.

Beginning in 1999, it changed the way telecommunications-related companies conducted business just as Uber, Facebook, Alibaba, Airbnb, Raygo, Kickstarter and Indiegogo have changed the way we go from one place to the other; the way we provide, consume, and store media; the way we buy and sell products, the way we lease offices, the way we use our smart phones while driving and the way we get funding.

Thousands of entrepreneurs, organizations and businesspeople are embracing the idea of aggregation whether to buy and sell services and products or to start up new aggregation service!

In 2015 Uber, the world's largest taxi company owns no vehicles. Facebook, the world's most popular media owner, creates no content. Alibaba, the most valuable retailer has no inventory. Airbnb the world's largest accommodation provider owns no real estate. Kickstarter and Indiegogo, the most popular crowd-funding platforms, do not own any of the projects—from cars for single moms to album production for music bands to initial sales for a new gadget--they enable to start up.

What kind of aggregation service can you start up in which you make it easy for sellers and buyers? What sector of people and/or organizations do you have the best connections with and wish to enable? Where are they physically and also virtually? What do they want most that could be provided to them more easily with an aggregation platform? Place those questions on the napkins of your next board meeting!

DidXchange is not just an aggregator that provides services to wholesale communications providers to conduct phone number business. It also has a mission to inspire anyone to learn; connect with new ideas, people and organizations; and become the next big aggregator and enabler. DidXchange, as an event media partner, recommends several conferences and exhibitions where one can gather information on topics such as “Aggregation and Enabling Users for Success” and leave inspired and spurred to action. ITEXPO, COMPTELPLUS, Enterprise Connect, CommunicAsia, and PTC are some of the technology business communications-related events that DidXchange sponsors as a media partner.

Reasons International Phone Numbers Improve Business

By Suzanne Bowen (also a TMCnet “Monetizing IP Communications” blogger)


So, you don't offer international phone numbers to your business customers? Or maybe you have convinced yourself that those call centers, channel partners, WISPs, and other telecom-related customers have a social media presence that trounces anything that owning an international phone number could accomplish?
  
The lack of international phone numbers in your CLEC or wireless phone service platform might be the missing link that could have kept your customers sticking with you! An international phone number shows potential and current clients of your customer that your customer really cares about them. Your customer wants his clients to be able to call him easily like a local call.

Negatively customer-churning business:

Your call center business customer is upset because he thinks that the last month's phone bill you sent has a mistake on it. Plus, the CEO asked if you offer international phone numbers like your competitor does, and you don't. Your account executive does his best to explain that what the customer thinks is a mistake, is actually correct, and that you do not offer international phone numbers. Your customer is offended and disappointed. He announces his absolutely firm cancellation of service and chooses your competitor who is ahead of the game.

Positively customer-retaining business:

Your call center business customer is upset because he thinks that the last month's bill you sent has a mistake on it. Your account executive shares a live view of his call logs to corroborate the bill. Then, she asks the customer if he would like to own some international phone numbers that his customers in those areas can call into for technical support and additional sales. The customer forwards your call to his CEO who is very excited about the opportunities of adding a "presence" in Australia, Belgium and Mexico. She envisions the new international phone numbers on her call center company website, business cards, email signatures and more. She even sends an email to the marketing team to start preparing a newswire press release right away announcing such.

Everyone knows that current and potential customers appreciate being able to conveniently contact their vendors quickly and at no charge to themselves. When they can dial a phone number that is local to them, say in Belgium, and reach you, who may be in Chicago, that's cool! Just ask the 1000s of wholesale members of DidXchange at the next telecommunications conference such as ComptelPlus, PTC, CommunicAsia or ITEXPO how cool this new value added business of international phone numbers can be.

Making available a number to call into that may be international to a business but local to a sector of their current and potential customers implies they care about saving them money and adding extra credibility. It makes clear that they want to make it simple and easy for them to get in touch to buy products and services, get technical or other types of customer support and maybe even become a reseller or channel partner in their regional area. International phone numbers strengthen positive communication opportunities with customers when competitors are looking for ways to reduce communications with customers.

Communications service providers that offer international phone numbers for sale to their clients will more likely retain customers. Why?

1. LOOK AS BIG AS YOU KNOW YOU ARE. - You suddenly look like a successful, growing provider. You offer not only phone numbers of the country where you are headquartered but also phone numbers of other countries, phone numbers that your customers want in order to be more available to their clients in those "other countries."

2. THE COMPETITION IS LESS LIKELY TO TAKE YOUR CUSTOMERS. - Your customers will not find very many communications service providers that do offer local phone numbers AND international phone numbers to their clients! This will set you apart from your competition. Your customers will not churn out and over to providers that cannot enable them to keep those international phone numbers.

3. YOUR CUSTOMERS WILL GAIN CLOUT. - Now, your customers will not only have a contact number of their own country, but also of any other city practically in the world that they want. Their friends, family, clients and vendors will take note with respect at their own success of being available around the world without the big expense of buying real estate.

SUMMARY:

An international phone number is not just the respected, useful thing to offer as a provider and have as an organization, but it is also an indispensable one that acts to build customer loyalty, enhance your image and theirs, and increase your sales and business. Browse the DidXchange USA and International DID phone numbers available today at http://www.didx.net/dids. End-users reading this blog post should ask their communications service providers: do you offer international phone numbers and are you a member of DidXchange?

Audio Podcasts Efficiency





Audio Podcasts Make Efficient Use of Business, Social and Personal Time

Queues, waiting, and/or being almost totally occupied...that describes everyone's business, personal and social life. In line for grocery or other retail checkout, in line for repair of smartphone or other equipment, in the midst of short and long drives, or just got a few minutes to fill...that describes our thoughts when we realize, "Hey, I could fill this time with something useful, entertaining, educational or inspiring." Watch videos, play games, talk to the person next to you or listen to audio. Audio is the topic of this blog post and specifically, it is about why and how audio podcasts meet the need to "fill the time" with something worthwhile.

DidXchange shares interviews in the form of audio podcasts, available at www.didx.net/podcast and https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/didx-podcasts/id322949120?mt=2 (in chronological order) with the world's most interesting entrepreneurs, technical developers, serialpreneurs and experts in telecommunications, connected cars, open software development, public relations, marketing, arts, and sustainability. They include two time Nokia phone competition winner Bernd Wiegmann, Andres Acero from Vocati Communications, David Mandelstam of Sangoma, Leila Modarres of DeviceAnywhere, Parks Associates' Jennifer Kent, Conexiant's Greg Giagnocavo, IPsmarx's Ludymar Reveron, Raco Wireless's John Horn, CrowdVoice's Esra'a Al Shafei, a conversation with open source podcasting developer Alberto Betella on "Scent over Internet," Toogethr's Martin Voorzanger, Kamailio's Daniel-Constantin Mierla, Tee-M's Beatle sounds, Linux Foundation's Rudolf Streif, the BBC's Mark Friend, Wireless Guru Brough Turner, and Asterisk and Digium's Mark Spencer.

Case for Audio Podcasts

Facial expression and body language are missing from audio podcasts, but how difficult is it to drive, clean house, and to complete other routine but important processes while watching videos for entertainment, education, relaxation or business? Besides, bluetooth and other handsfree enablers help us to listen to our favorite music and audio podcasts and even conduct highly lucrative business such as telemarketing (a bit annoying but productive) with great convenience. Video is awesome, but it does not mix very well with wet hands, hands on a steering wheel or hands holding items to be purchased. Audio, for many, is a lifesaver. Besides, we all want to be remembered as people who enjoy life and who use our time wisely without harming ourselves or others.

How often have we wanted to get more done at one time without losing quality? Audio seems to work better than video for multi-tasking. Sometimes we just do not need to or have time to dedicate 100 % of our time to some daily work, social and personal task. An audio podcast is effective enough to learn, inspire, motivate and maybe even get a few laughs.

Some of the most interesting statements made by our star-studded cast of audio podcast interviewees:

"There are two types to market to: the Godfather sophisticated type and the other the Austin Power's younger generation feel." - Sarah Dawood and Neil Christy of Cafe Headlion

"Connected cars technology is also driven by the auto manufacturers themselves as they seek to build a closer relationship with their customers to meet the requirement for connectivity and, of course, drive some additional revenue stream." - Machina Research Director Matt Hatton

Steve Cayona of Techistan magazine asked fring's Jake Levant, "How is fring different from Truphone?"

"We don't need to know the future. The essence of Mobile Monday is releasing the power of people... where they take their corporate hats off when they are meeting with peers." Mobile Monday's CEO Jari Tammisto

Summary

Video, text and audio are effective means of communication, learning, entertainment and more in our business, social and personal lives. The case for audio podcasts, one component of audio successes, is that it makes excellent use of time when we are able to multi-task such as taking care of mundane office work, when we are bored such as while waiting in a queue, and when we want to keep ourselves safe such as while driving or jogging.

Telecoms and Voip Companies Empower People and Organizations with Phone Numbers of USA's Big Cities

First, if you are a wholesale telecommunications-related company or you are a wholesale company who provides telecommunications as part of services, this blog is for you. If you are not, ask your telecom or your IP communications company if they are a member of DIDX. If they say, "Yes," you can buy phone numbers from them from all over the USA and 59 other countries from them. If they are not a member and are not interested in providing this service to you, contact MyDivert, G2Talk, CallwithusNomado Telecom sprl, or Virtual Phone Line.

On to one of the best opportunities that vendors have brought to 20,000 + who are now using DIDX to buy and sell phone numbers wholesale:

718040 and 718665 are the DIDX vendor IDs of telecom operators who are now offering DIDs (also known as phone numbers in every day terms) from some of USA's biggest, most popular cities at excellent rates. They have a high quality vendor rating of 5.

For example, Atlanta, Georgia and San Diego, California are two of those cities and among the top USA cities to do business in according to Inc.com. New York City area are Chicago two cities available that have some of the largest numbers of immigrants who need local phone numbers in the USA and perhaps even local phone numbers from homeland. People in your immigrant customer's homeland will dial the local number of your customer to reach them.

Log in to your DIDX account now, click BUY DID, browse the USA DID areas including the area codes listed below and look for those under DIDX vendor IDs 718040 and 718665. The DID phone numbers from these vendors have a zero set up fee and then less than $1 per month. This is a very low fee to buy USA DID. Add your commission and share the DID areas through the free DIDX API. Your clients, instead of traveling to visit family, customers, and other people abroad or and spending money on real estate there for local presence ...

Enable them USA and international phone numbers at low rates per month.

See the following cities that are available with the great deal we are sharing. If you, the reader, are a consumer or enterprise, ask your telephone service provider if they are members of DIDX so you can take advantage now. Please keep in mind, DIDX is a wholesale platform, so any prices you see are BEFORE retail mark-up.
