RingCentral has partnered with Mobile Jaw and 23 other blogs to host the Ultimate Small Business Start-up Package. Starting today, and again every day until April 29th, a different blog will be offering a chance to win 12 months of free service of RingCentral Mobile (a $300 value). Each site will have their own contest with their own rules, and each site will pick their own winner. But that’s not end to the winnings. Each of the 24 winners will be entered into a draw to win one of five (5) grand prizes (valued at an additional $862, for a grand total of $1162)!
If you’re not familiar with RingCentral, you can check out their website for more information, or keep your browser pointed here at Mobile Jaw as we are working on a review of their service.
So, it breaks down like this – 24 winners (one from each of the participating sites), and then 5 grand prize winners selected randomly from the 24 winners. Here’s a breakdown of what the grand prize winners will get:
Element 1: Virtual Phone System (1 year free service from RingCentral)
When someone calls your business, having professional-grade communications is a must – there’s simply no two ways about it. RingCentral is providing all winners with a full RingCentral Mobile account for use 12 months. The rich menu of business-class features comprising RingCentral Mobile is unmatched in the industry and provides advanced functions unavailable in even the most expensive PBXs.
RingCentral’s virtual phone system for mobile professionals delivers all the power of a “big company” phone system but with no hardware to buy and nothing to maintain. It’s an ideal telecommunications solution for mobile professionals, home offices and small businesses.
