Welcome to the penultimate Chat with Nat of the year and Happy Holidays! As we mentioned last week, Chat is coming to you a little bit earlier than usual as we know many of you are hustling, bustling, and trying to get out of the office quickly (or already have done so, lucky lucky). So before you go, let's get to a fast wrap-up of the past couple of days. Here's Chat with Nat: Another Nat Chat + Holiday 25¢ DIDs.
In Case You Missed It
In this week’s installment of Talking with Tapolci, Jason Tapolci had a true Chat with Nat as he sat down with the woman herself and discussed her role at VoIP Innovations as Marketing Communications Manager. In this vlog, she shares her insights on creating a marketing strategy and identifying your target audience through buyer personas. You won't want to miss Episode 4 - Identifying Your Market. But in case you did miss it, we have it posted below for your convenience!

We have a gift for you—from now until January 31, 2016, we are offering 25¢ DIDs with no porting or activation fees!! As an existing customer of VoIP Innovations, you can port numbers from other carriers into VoIP Innovations for free and the activation fees will be waived. Remember that we have Standard and Project (more than 50 numbers) Porting Specialists who are ready to assist you with any porting needs. New or existing customers can also purchase the 25¢ DIDs under the new Tier 25 in the BackOffice. If you’re not a customer yet, you can always test out a Free Trial of our services first and the promotion will be available to you there, too!
Are you traveling over the holidays? You might as well kick back and listen to our eBook, Originating Profit: Overcoming the Challenges of VoIP Entrepreneurship, during your journey! It's been turned into an audio book, so for those of you who prefer to hear your books as opposed to reading them, this is for you!
The next ITEXPO East will be held at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, January 25 -28 (Exhibits January 26 – 28). We will be showcasing our new DID Wizard. Soon, you’ll find out about the ease and functionality of ordering DIDs and more! Also, our System Engineer, Joe Aponick will be speaking about VoIP fraud. We’ll be at Booth 615 ready to visit with you, chat, and of course, hand out some fun swag. We hope to see you there! In the meantime, get yourself a FREE ExpoPlus Pass so you don’t miss out on the action!

The philanthropy that is near and dear to our hearts is Make-A-Wish. Along with our parent company ABG Capital, we were honored to present Make-A-Wish Greater PA and WV a check for almost $14,000. This money, gathered through various fundraising efforts and employee donations throughout the year, is enough to grant the wishes of three kids! One of our local radio stations, Wish 99.7, filmed the check donation presentation and you can watch it here.
