5 Ways to Make Your Work Phone Work for You

Your business phone system comes packed with features designed for productivity, which can help you to impress co-workers and customers alike. Time is money, and you can add time to your day just by using your phone more efficiently. Because Lieberman Technologies sells Allworx phones, this list focuses on the features offered by an Allworx system, but many phone systems have similar elements.

Sync Your Cell Phone Contacts with Your Allworx Desk Phone

Now, with the Allworx Verge 9000 phone, even more happens in the background to help you run your business better. When you get back to the office, your contacts on your iPhone or Android phone sync via Bluetooth with your desk phone. From there it goes into your Verge system. When Dave goes to his desk to call Mary, her contact information is already on his desk phone. He can sit down, scroll to her name, press call, and be talking through specs in the time it would take to open his email.

Improve Your LinkedIn SEO

Between the huge user-base of Facebook and the brevity of Twitter, many people see LinkedIn as social media only for job seekers. If you are looking for customers, not a job, LinkedIn is a great tool for SEO and advertising your company. In about 15 minutes a week, you will be able to use LinkedIn to build your brand, help your people show their authority in their field, and drive traffic to your web site.

Facebook Giveaway Scams: Worse than Fake News

Most of these scams instruct you to “like & share” a post in order to enter into a pool of possible winners. Maybe you’ve done it yourself, thinking, “what could it hurt?” Facebook giveaway scams exist for one reason: to get something from you. If you’re overly fond of your personal information (and you should be), avoid these “like & share” schemes.

How Do I Remove a Web Page from Google Search?

A web page that shows up in search results but doesn’t go anywhere will return a 404 error when users click that link. Most users will hit the back button and leave your site if they get a 404 error. That’s the main reason you can’t just delete a page from your site if it becomes out of date. You’ll have to remove a web page from the Google index if you want to eliminate this source of 404 errors.

Do I Need a Managed Service Provider if I Use SaaS?

Oftentimes, SaaS and Managed Services are presented as an either/or scenario. I can understand that kind of thinking since SaaS is an outsourced solution for software deployment and maintenance. To many business owners, this outsourced software doesn’t need any additional management. But businesses typically use a mix of proprietary software and SaaS, often with custom and legacy systems thrown in for good measure.

Have You Upgraded to Windows 10 Yet? Time is Running Out!

Whenever Microsoft does something like launch a new operating system, most people fall into one of two categories:  early adopters and those who wait until the eleventh hour. If you’re an early adopter, this post isn’t about you. You’ve had your free upgrade for months now, and you’ve been humming along with your copy of Windows 10 without so much as a

WordPress Experts, Nerds, and Newbs at WordCamp St. Louis

Our web design team took a road trip to a gathering of WordPress experts, advocates, fans, and professionals called WordCamp St. Louis. On any given week, we at Lieberman Technologies run the gamut from a kid with a new toy that he hasn’t figured out yet to diabolical web design genius, so WordCamp was a good thing for us.

Should You Standardize Your IT Infrastructure?

Consider for a moment the phone on your desk. More than likely, your phone is identical to the phone on the desk of your cube neighbor, which is also identical to the phone that the company president uses. The same model of phone for each employee in an organization makes good business sense, both from a budgetary and usability perspective. Standardization is

Storytelling is Good For Business

Have you ever had a teacher who was so great at teaching that you still remember things you learned in that class, sometimes decades later? Most of us have had at least one of these educational superstars, whose specific talents led us to learning, oftentimes in spite of ourselves. I’ve got a handful of favorite teachers, but one of them stands out

How to Win at Any Startup Weekend

Startup Weekend Evansville is part of a global network of events where people come and pitch a business idea on Friday night, work and sweat and learn all weekend, and Sunday night pitch the business plan. There is a panel of judges made up of local business and community leaders that pick the top three pitches. The winners get a variety of

Security Tips for Wireless Routers

If you have internet service in your home – and many American households do – chances are you’re accessing it via a Wi-Fi connection. The freedom of movement that Wi-Fi provides allows us to access the internet virtually anywhere in our homes, completely cord-free, and we generally don’t give it much thought. But Wi-Fi routers can be the source of a security
