Are Long Distance Phone Fees Busting You?



Phone Companies had a monopoly on long distance phone fees for years and we all got used to seeing a whopping monthly phone bill because of them. We kept phoning our families that lived away from us down to a minimum to avoid the cost of long distance phone fees to maintain our budgets.

Then over the last 10 years many phone companies lost their monopolies and the competition has gradually eroded the system so that long distance phone fees were reduced to pennies per minute rather than dollars.

However are you aware that you can now get long distance phone calls without fees?

I have been aware for a couple of years of Magic Jack, where you lease a converter for $60 delivered for each computer, creating a Voice Over Internet Phone (VOIP) and talk to your heart’s content without any long distance phone fees. Then once per year you send in a lease payment of $20 for each converter you use. This system also comes with its own phone number so it does not disrupt or change your landline or mobile.

Another way to avoid long distance phone fees, I just recently became aware of is through the use of the Microsoft Phone. It is called 3CX Phone. On their web page they state..”3CXPhone for Windows is free, although you need to have a VOIP provider or VOIP PBX account from a 3rd party to make and receive calls free of charge or at low cost (depending on the provider). 3CX does not provide such a service.

I have been using the Microsoft Phone now for awhile and am very impressed with it. It was easy to set up and has an option of auto dial which would be useful to businesses making back-to-back phone calls. I haven’t experienced any glitches either. Sweet.

Microsoft Phone also provides a list of VOIP providers one such provider is Skype, as many of you know is another free download. Skype Premium is being featured right now at $4.99 per month, which is half of it’s regular charge (just thought I would mention it for you go-getters).

Skype also provides free phone calls across North America at no cost. So really the long distance phone fees come now from only those people that we phone offshore. These charges can really add up so it is necessary to work your way around them.

Yes, there are peripheral costs, however, you don’t need to have long distance phone fees busting your budget anymore, right?

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?

    • Hi. Sorry for the l o n g delay in responding. Medical and all that. I suggest you obtain your WordPress through your web host if possible. Search for “White Style” for assistance in writing. I don’t think that is really necessary if you have a high school education at least and write from what you know. If you copy from the Internet your viewers will get wise to you very quickly. Subjectively, you have chosen wisely as there is a real need for this subject in our “down” times. Good Luck to you I hope it has gone well foryou.
