Your home business is not a regular 9-5 job, and connectivity to your business should be consistent. Birthday parties or laptop problems should not wreak havoc on your busines; hence, the case for Smartphones.
A smartphone is an advanced mobile phone that does more than just calling--it keeps you connected to the world by connecting to the web as well. Most of these Smartphones have an operating system inbuilt that makes them work as mini-computers. Some of the popular examples of Smartphones are iPhone, Blackberry and Nokia E71. Of late, these advanced cell phones have been changing the way businesses are run. Here are the reasons why:
You're Never Out of Reach
Smart phones allow you to check mails all the time. They enable synchronization between your mail accounts like Outlook, Gmail, etc., and notify you of any new messages. So, travelling will no longer be your "Away" time on your account. You are accessible and productive always. Only you, as a home business owner, realize the importance of replying to your potential customer on time. Smartphones offer you this service at only slightly higher rates than the Internet at your home.
Advertising on Fingertips
You do not have to sit at your desk and open your Facebook account to advertise your latest product. Smartphones gives you the freedom to browse whenever and wherever you like. Therefore, whether it is updating your status on Twitter or telling the whole world about your win on Facebook, Smartphones does it for you effortlessly.
Cell phones like Blackberry have very advanced configurations that assure superior connectivity. Though the wireless charges are more expensive on the Smartphones, it would not fail you during an important chat or an important mail. While travelling, your data and connectivity is much safer on a Smartphone than a laptop.
Pocket Size Power
You can forget the huge laptop and the accompanying equipments to keep your laptop running while you are outdoors. Smartphones are small and very easy to carry. They are only slightly larger than normal cell phones, and you can carry them in your pocket. Therefore, the hunt for a comfortable seat on the crowded train can rest for awhile. Just use the scroll button on your Smartphone while standing in the crowd and get back to work.
Also, one can consider the other in-built cell-phone benefits that come with the Smartphone. You have access to your contacts, calendar and other personal information quicker than a laptop. You can even take photographs and share with customers and your staff faster with your Smartphones than a laptop (which would require synchronization with your cell phone first).
Considering the immense benefits that Smartphone offers, using one for your home business is advisable. It brings in the connectivity and comfort that eventually translates to a relaxed you.
