The Hotline

Thursday, 23 June 2005 at 10:00 am Pacific USA Time.

As this is being posted, we are exhibiting in booth 726 at the eBay Live! Community Conference. As we have recently had a lot of clients who are completely new to selling eBay and who have required a little extra hand-holding, we tried to come up with a way to be able to keep in touch with them if they need us even though we are in our trade show booth.

Enter the As Was red hotline phone, purchased on eBay from seller telephoneoperator. It’s a real 1971 Western Electric model 500 rotary telephone, complete with red cords and evidently a very loud ring. We’ll connect our Vonage to the internet we get in our booth; this will allow our office number to ring in our booth… and it will ring loudly on a red hotline phone.

This will be at a convention, so the old-fashioned phone ringing  noise is sure to attract somebody’s interest! Plus, we will have the chance to address as many of our clients’ questions as we can without them having to wait for us to call back. I am fairly sure that nobody else on the trade show floor will have a 1971 telephone ringing.

If you are at the eBay convention, drop by our booth. If you are not at the convention and have questions about our company or services, give us a call! :) Visitors to our booth are our priority in that moment, but we’ll do our best to answer all calls that come in.
