Despite the challenges inherent in running a business of five or fewer employees, the majority of these microbusiness owners are quite content with how they make a living. In fact, a new survey conducted by
Club and Gallup found that 69 percent of the 868 entrepreneurs asked said that owning a business is their ideal job. Considering the U.S. is home to more than 25 million microbusinesses, it seems there are a lot of people living the dream, many of them using a cloud communications solution.
The top two concerns for these business owners are day-to-day management taking them away from serving customers and that rising taxes and fees are cutting into their budgets. As it happens, a small business phone service can help entrepreneurs get back to growing their companies while simultaneously cutting costs and easing financial strain.
Small business phone services in the cloud are maintained by the vendor. Therefore, business owners don’t have to worry about wasting valuable human resources on installing a legacy system. They can also stop worrying about technicians taking a full day to install complex hardware and then pulling out a fat bill at the end. In other words, the system saves time and money, now and in the future
Companies can save in less obvious ways as well. For instance, a cloud-based, virtual phone service means some companies may stop renting office space altogether, potentially leading to huge savings. Virtual offices and remote working are on the rise and showing no signs of slowing down, evidenced by research showing 62 percent of small businesses now allow employees to work remotely at least some of the time.
So whether you are already enjoying being your own boss or are considering joining the ranks of microbusiness owners, consider how a small business phone service might make your life easier. With everything you do, you deserve it.
