According to CNET News, by 2013, mobile phones could easily surpass PCs as the way most people search the Web. Research firm Gartner indicates that Web-enabled phones will shoot past 1.82 billion units by 2013. As reported by Business Week magazine, "More than half the people surveyed recently by Zogby International said they would use a tablet device such as the iPad for working outside the office."
Given the ease of making business connections through the iPhone, many are already beginning to do so. And InsideUp is making it even easier to instantly connect with service providers that a business is in the market for. Asad Haroon, CEO of InsideUp, explains, "We are exposing our service to a device which is heavily used by businesses. You can submit a request wherever you are - and small business owners are constantly on the go. You simply submit your request on your iPhone and get matched to vendors who will then contact you. The whole process can take place while mobile."
Haroon points out that the immediacy of such a system makes it simple and cost-effective for businesses to receive ready-access to service providers. It allows companies to respond the moment a potential customer submits a request, which makes this a valuable tool for both small and large business owners.
He adds that it's also an invaluable time-saver for businesses that don't want to go through the ordeal of researching each provider to find the one that best matches their needs and budget. "When you submit a request on the iPhone or iPad, you will be instantly matched with vendors that fit your criteria, and you will receive custom quotes from multiple providers," said Haroon, adding, "The way businesses connect is rapidly changing, and InsideUp is constantly seeking new ways to help businesses stay competitive and push their companies forward."
This solution also has the potential to greatly increase conversion rates. According to an MIT study, the chances of qualifying a lead that is called within five minutes decrease 21 times after just 30 minutes have passed.
The key to making that crucial immediate contact lies in eliminating or reducing any processes that can eat into those critical first minutes. By following a few simple steps outlined in the instruction document, marketers will be able to receive InsideUp leads directly to their Salesforce account. The leads will be posted using a standard Salesforce field, such as name, company, title, industry, phone number, etc. Category-specific questions and answers will then be posted to the "Description" field.
