The newest release of GrandCentral has some great (and useful) features. I’m doubly excited becuase GrandCentral is available to me now as a Canadian. They’ve added web buttons to their line-up. Not a breakthrough feature, but one that has come to be expected. Basically, you add a button to your website or blog that visitors to click to call you (on your GrandCentral number of course).
What’s great is that you can connect with people this way OR you can send them to a voice recording. Like this:
GrandCentral gives some other examples:
- eBay auction: GrandCentral button can send callers to a voicemail with a description of the item on sale. Callers can leave a message and the GrandCentral user can decide whom to call back.
- MySpace page: profile can let people calling without sharing GrandCentral userâ€™s phone number
Time and time again, web marketers show that if you can get your vistors to interact with you (your site), like answer surveys, click a button, answer a question, you’re more likely to make sales, or whatever else your site goals are.
I’ll be adding oneto my About page on this blog, and to my info site www.quickstartvoip.com.
