Certainly, all good and successful businessmen recognize the importance of regular, smooth and open communication. No business strategy will ever be effective if such is not carried out with an open communication. This paradigm highlights the advantage of being prepared with calling cards.

Doing business trips is one of the responsibilities that a businessman has to take. However, for most businessmen, such responsibility also comes with perks and privileges. Because of the frequency of trips for a businessman, Calling cards are considered a must. Making local and international calls through calling cards are both economical and convenient. You can make a call anywhere you are, without having to incur unusually excessive charges and rates.

Through their calling cards, businessmen can call from their homes to their offices. They can call their clients, suppliers, customers, stockholders and partners. Inquiries and customer service are accommodated more efficiently. If the business owners or proprietors are out of town or out of the country, their subordinates can easily contact them for emergency or urgent matters. Even recruitment can already be handled by using calling cards. In fact, using calling cards can expedite almost all business transactions. In just one click, within just a few seconds, any businessman can have all the information he needs to proceed with his business operations

In three easy steps learn how to pick the right calling card for your needs. This will save you money and put you on the right track

1. Identifying Your Needs:

Destination – Where are you calling?

Duration – How long do you think your calls will be? Either less than 30 minutes or over an hour

Frequency – Is it a onetime thing where you need to make an international call, or do you frequently make international calls?

Connection Quality – do you need high connection quality, or are you simply looking for the cheapest way to place a call?

Traveling – Do you need a calling card for when you travel, or is it for use in the United States?

Business Use – Do you plan to use the card for business or personal use?

Recharge – Are you looking for a phone card that can be recharged?

2. Understanding Your Options:

- Fees

- Minute Rounding

- Access Numbers

3. Making the Selection:

Searching on the Internet or even in stores, you will find there is wide variety of cards to choose from. There are “name brand” cards from carriers like AT&T, MCI, IDT, Verizon, etc. These are often not the best options. Often name brand cards offer more expensive rates per minute because you pay a premium for the name. Calling cards offered from smaller carriers are often better alternatives to name brand cards. Large companies like AT&T have huge expenses and as a result pass along more expensive rates to their customers.

Some international calling cards are the cheapest and most convenient option to make international phone calls. One could use a computer and internet but if you and your family / friends do not live their life in front of a computer, that is not good enough. Fortunately, internet, using voice over IP technology allows the calling card companies use the same internet infrastructure to route voice traffic over long distances between two phones. Compared to using the long distance plans of a phone company, or a cell phone account, the calling card prices are almost free.
