As a small business owner, we are always looking for ways to cut costs and separate our personal life from our business life. Our current business turns a year old this month and we are finally finding that balance. It tends to run into each other more often then we like. So I have set a goal for myself to find more efficient and practical ways to perfect the balance (if that is even possible).
One of my issues is our phone situation. Currently, we each have our personal mobile phones and an office phone. The office phone is primarily used for customer service for our online store. Our clients, manufacturers and business contacts reach us on our mobile phones and they do that whenever they need to. Most of the time, they are calling from phone numbers that are not saved in my phone; therefore, I answer it – even when it should be my “personal time.”
I found a solution! I’m going to invest in an additional mobile phone for business purposes only. With it being tax time, we might as well spend our dollars as wisely as possible. Adding an additional line to our current mobile plan is not cost effective. Walmart Family Mobile offers the best plan for the price (hands down). By that, I mean the price is almost unbelievable!
Walmart Family Mobile offers unlimited talk, text and data for only $29.88/month (for the first line which includes up to 500MB of 4G LTE data. That’s extremely affordable! Once you have one line, you can add additional lines at a lower cost. This is such a great deal, we could easily add a second phone for my fiance to have his own business line.
I’m into technology and gadgets so a nice phone is a must for me. When I saw the ZTE ZMAX, I knew I would love it. It has a large screen, runs Android and is lightweight. Taking one look at this phone, one might think it’s a $700 phone – nope! This ZTE ZMAX is regular $199.88 but is currently on rollback for only $179! You will also need a Walmart Family Mobile starter pack which is only $25! Once you have those two things, you are good to go!
I love that I can install all of the business apps that allow me to manage our business on-the-go. I can manage our financials, check emails, handle customer service, fulfill orders – you name and I can probably do it. This phone is amazing. Walmart Family Mobile is a great way to save money at tax time with a business expense. Plus, it’s solving a year long problem!
If you are interested in grabbing an amazing deal with Walmart Family Mobile, you can find the phone and starter kit in the electronics department down the “no contract” phone aisle and, in some stores, you might find them on display in the middle aisle.
