Yes, some of them.
uReach.com for voicemail, fax email. I found out about this from a long discussion on this board about a month
ago. I did a lot of internet searches on the subject.
Basic service is free you get a toll -free number, the cost for incoming
calls was not too much, and it’s a permanent number and you get many other service. I thought this would appeal especially to someone who
might be moving, and not want to lose contacts.
I also have efax which has a free basic service and also has
a very inexpensive enhanced service.
I would say get serveral free ISP’s, in case one goes
down. Put the free email address on your business cards,
Angie already seems to have a free ISP.
They are good to have even if you have a paid ISP.
I like back-up.
There are other different types of services for which I could get a month
free service per referral, but so could Angie, So if she took that service, someone here could put her down
as a referral and help her out. This is just one of those ‘refer a friend’ things, not MLM. Like I said, these are money saving tips more than money making tips. I think there is
an expanding amount of competition and services for
business need–answering services, internet faxes, etc.
More services pop up everyday. I was attempting to address the issue of someone who might not have a fax
machine, pager, etc. Also, even if you have a fax
machine, it’s good sometimes to use efax or one of the
other services that sends fax to your email, because it
saves ink! Or, if you’re out of ink cartridges, it’s a nice backup!
The other ideas were more directly related to inexpensive services
that would help in REI but that I have a financial interest in, and may not be of immediate need, so I won’t post here.
