I have been doing some google adwords like many of you, and have been underwhelmed with the results.

I have done some search engine optimization to show up for some key words that I THOUGHT were important to show up as an option to sell phone systems in my market. Imagine my surprise when I started to look at the Overture results for my "keywords". The tool has been down for awhile, but is up as a few days ago.

Here were all results from Jan '07 (The most recent results) that show up for the most common telecom terms. I kept only words searched over a thousand times nationwide to eliminate fluff.

The link to that tool is <a href="https://inventory.overture.com/d/searchinventory/suggestion/">here</a>.

Find the system you service and tell me if it doesn't change your opinion about where the market is heading.....

I also was shown this link here recently that was an eyeopener. Do yourself a favor and <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljbI-363A2Q">check it out.</a> Times are changing, rapidly, and it is becoming apparent to me that I need to keep some of this in mind as I plan future marketing methods/campaigns to avoid flushing money down the toilet.

It would also appear it is in my best interest to start embracing some new skillsets.

I'm just glad Trixbox isn't on that list smile

Asterisk gets spot #18 laugh

I think what isn't reflected in the search listings is that the larger franchises already have market penetration and probably have people just directly type in their site.

For instance, if I wanted to buy a ford truck, I wouldn't go to google and type in "Ford Truck", i'd just type in www.ford.com expecting there to be a ford website. If there wasn't, then i'd google. I think that isn't accounted for here.

However, in response to your video link, all I can say is that in the year 2049 we will have to either take the red pill, or take the blue pill, and see how far the rabbit hole goes laugh

I just came from the Internet Telephony conference in L.A. 2 weeks ago. There was one thing that was mentioned that really stuck with me. They aren't having conferences to discuss class 5 switches. It's coming whether us copper slingers like it or not. When the equipment you work on day in and day out is refered to as "legacy", it is time to pay attention.

Good information....*XYZ* is well up on the list.

Emmitt, I hear what you are saying......BUT.....the people calling TDM systems "legacy" are the ones putting on the conference......the Internet Telephony crowd.

Anything more than just a dozen months old is "legacy" to them.

My two shekels.

Time marches on from cranking up the batteries on a phone to spinning a dial to pushing buttons. Technology moves forward and if we don't work with it we will work against it. I like what is coming down the pipe. I work mainly with Toshiba and their systems can go full ip or can intergrate ip and digital from large to small systems

So what exactly is your point? All that shows is that the marketing dollars of the likes of Cisco and their ilk are working and people are asking for information.

All I can say is I have never had a customer request an IP solution.

That list is probably pretty accurate see what systems people need the most help with and what doesn't work thats why there are very few TDM systems listed they run like a rock and are user friendly no need to Google it.

Good point KLD, and I have to remember that I am in rural eastern Washington. Most corn and potato farmers don't need voip? Traditional(I prfer traditional to legacy) systems aren't going away tomorrow. But i have several customers who want it, and if we are going to continue to do business with them we need a solution in our bag.

Emmitt, here in eastern Kansas it is the same. A few banks, hospitals, the like, have branches, the VoIP IT guys use it ..... but not for the real lines....just tie lines.

Same here. I have only had one customer even talk about VoIP, and that was because the IT guy tried to shove it down his throat. Didn't work. But IF (that is a BIG IF) I ever need it I have several avenues to handle it. But study it and be prepared is not a bad thing. Jump in with both feet as my first line of product? NO WAY !!!!

Have a good day. wink

of course, since the VoIP guys are also the internet guys, makes sense they would have the larger result for search words.

try the same kind of searching for dogs, then breeds, etc.


it's all tip and ring
