Dreading Making That Call-Don’t-SlyDial Instead

I love technology.  Technology has made my life so much easier.  I am a Business Development Manager for a National title insurance company in Phoenix Arizona.  I remember the days when I would have to actually, physically walk in to a real estate office to meet new real estate agents.  Not anymore.  Technology has made that method of growing my business as antiquated as the 2 martini lunch.  Now, I use technology, facebook, twitter, blogs to meet new real estate agents.  Sorry front desk lady you can’t keep me out anymore, I snuck in the back door!

As a real estate agent, technology is your friend-at least it better be, you would look really awkward carrying around a 12 pound brick car phone or a physical book with all the homes for sale in the Phoenix metro area.  Because you provide a service, most of your job revolves around communication.  Communication with your client, cross sale agent, lender, appraiser, home inspector, title company and on and on.  It is the first and second on the list above that can prove to be the most time consuming, annoying and possibly even abusive. “Why isn’t my house sold yet?”  “I saw on your facebook that you went out of town-why isn’t my house sold yet?”  “I want to see 85 homes, 40 on the east side and 45 on the west side” Grrrrr, there are just some calls you, I, you, we all, don’t want to make.  Wouldn’t it be great if you could call that “unique client” back-without calling them?  Wouldn’t it be great to explain the weeks market or showing activity on your client’s home without it turning into a 30 minute call?  Well technology has made your life a little easier.  Now you can call that client, other agent, even your significant other without calling them at all!  It’s called SlyDial. And it’s FREE! Yea….

SlyDial is exactly as it sounds, a way to call someone on the Sly or the DL (that’s the Down Low) for the Ebonics challenged.  “SlyDial is a voice messaging service that connects you DIRECTLY to someones voicemail”.

Slydial has found some  perfect situations where “Sly” is certainly warranted:

“SlyDialing is as simple as this

  1. Dial 267-SLYDIAL (267-759-3425) from any landline or mobile phone.
  2. At the voice prompt, enter the U.S. mobile phone number of the person you want to slydial.
  3. You will be directly connected to their voicemail. Leave them a voicemail, sit back and relax.”

Pretty cool huh.  Couple things you should be aware of, 1st-you can’t slydial yourself-sorry. 2nd-you cannot call from a blocked number. 3rd-you will need to listen to a short advertisement.

SlyDial also has apps for the iPhone, Blackberry, Android and Windows phones.  Check out the SlyDial service, I am sure you will find it to be most beneficial to your business time.

SlyDial now has a business service (currently in Beta) that allows you to send voicemail messages directly to a group of people like customers or sales people.  In addition, you can avoid the advertising messages when using SlyDial by opting for their premium service.  .10 per call, $2.95 per month or $29.95 per year.  Guess which one I use?

Oh yea, one last thing.  Get ready for the call back with “I didn’t even hear my phone ring!” You probably don’t want to say, “that’s because I SlyDialed you! ha ha ha ha” .  Nooooo that probably would not be very Sly at all, would it?
