Fixing your leaky bucket with your PHONE!
Thanks for stopping by!
As The EC’s trusted provider for all things telecoms for a good few years now, we have a few solutions to offer you today. To make your life easier, what would you like to know more about? Hint: We have free trials for both!
I think it’s fair to say that for most businesses, keeping your bucket leakproof is easier said than done, especially when you’ve got a million things to do and never enough time to do it. That said, the leads and enquiries your business picks up via your phone should NEVER result in a leak in your bucket – but poor call handling is probably the largest hole in most buckets today.
Marketing campaigns can be costly! Which is why you need to be making sure that every call you get from a campaign you’re paying for, whether online or offline, is tracked so that you know what’s working, what isn’t, and what areas to be pushing your pennies into.
Even better… having a phone system tailored to your business with integrations into your CRM and tools will ensure that once those leads hang up, you have everything you need to follow up with them, secure the sale and provide excellent customer service.
Optimising your marketing
The EC are fantastic at marketing, we all know that. But even the EC knows that not everything they send out works. How do they know that? They track it.. Online marketing is easy to measure but how do you track how your marketing is performing when the prospect picks up the phone and calls you? That’s where call tracking comes in.
How does call tracking work?
It's really simple. It can be set up in three easy steps and only takes minutes:
1. Choose a set of new telephone numbers.
2. Point the new numbers at your existing phone number using our online dashboard. Don’t worry, nothing changes on your existing phone lines, you’ll still receive calls from your existing customers on your normal business number.
3. Now you give every advert, every bit of marketing, a unique telephone number. For example, one number for your business cards, one for your website, one for an advert in the new local newspaper and so on…..
And you’re done! Everything else stays the same. You continue to receive calls on your existing phone as normal and you answer it in the same way.
But now there’s one important difference. You can log into our online dashboard at any time and instantly see how many calls you’ve received on any of your tracking numbers. If you’ve just spent several hundreds of pounds on an advert in your local newspaper, doesn’t it make sense to find out how many leads that advert has generated? This information is priceless!

The Invoco cloud phone system
The terminology can be confusing: Cloud Phone System, Virtual PBX, Hosted Telephony, IP PBX, VoIP…what does it all mean? First and foremost, it’s a phone system, plain and simple. But with some extras. Ok, a lot of extras. The Invoco phone system is the only phone system in the UK which has been designed specifically to serve the needs of the EC community and to help smart business owners Get and Keep Customers.
An Invoco Hosted PBX consists of:
An Internet Connection
This can be a standard fibre broadband connection or a leased line. No more analogue or ISDN lines required.
IP phones are just like the normal business phones you’re used to, they just plug into your internet connection. They don’t all have to be in the same location either, they can be located wherever you have an Internet connection (ideal for our current hybrid-working world).
‘Half my advertising works and half doesn’t, but I just don’t know which is which!’
It used to be a well worn saying: ‘Half my advertising works and half doesn’t, but I just don’t know which is which and in 1933 when this quote was first used, it was valid.
But times have moved on and it is now a phrase that can only be used by lazy, ignorant business owners. For the rest of us, we can get a pretty good handle on most, if not all, of our advertising with a little tool called Tracking Numbers…
