Giveaway: Win a $200 Grasshopper Credit

GrasshopperAs you know, we’re all about collaboration at the Bonfire. One of the collaborative relationships we’ve been building over the past few months is with Grasshopper, the virtual phone system designed for entrepreneurs. Grasshopper offers toll free or local numbers, unlimited extensions, call forwarding, voicemail via email, plus a whole lot more.

You can find out more about Grasshopper here:, and check out Grasshopper on Facebook, too.

When we started to chat with the great team at Grasshopper, we quickly realized that we had a lot in common and that, together, we could help a lot of entrepreneurs.

The first step of that partnership was a guest post by Alyssa on the Grasshopper blog on how to add more time to your day. Then, Allison Canty from Grasshopper guest blogged here on the Bonfire about boosting your brand awareness.

The next step of our partnership is today’s giveaway announcement.

  1. I have listed past clients with testimonials before I was a business. They are legit qoutes, but that way I appear to have strong history.

  2. Before I had a team, I always used “we” language. “We do xyz”, “Someone on our team will contact you”, etc. I love Grasshopper btw. :)

  3. At the very beginning we arranged to instead of having our email come straight from **, we expanded to have company e-mail addresses. We also have VP’s of each position for people to get in touch with, and adding testimonials to our site lets people know we are legit! Read up on Grasshopper and seems awesome—keeping my fingers crossed!! :)

  4. Anytime I mention our (my) company, I always use we or our. In fact all of our automated emails (invoice reminders, support ticket responses, etc.) are signed with Sincerely, Team. Most of our (my) clients don’t know it is just me.

  5. Like many have posted here I always refer to business as we and our. I use support ticket and several different e-amil addresses to appear as I have different departments. Last year I moved my office out of my basement into a very low rent co working office building in my town. This office offers me a true business address, and conference rooms so I dont have to meet clients in coffee shops. And a big bonus being there is I now have a large pool of different people that allow me to offer more services and support to my clients. We have even gone as far to team up with another web developer so we both can take vacation and be able to offer support to each others clients, the hard part is to remember to awnser email and phone calls with the other persons business name.

  6. I agree with the other posters…it’s always “we” and the multiple email addresses also help. But more so…it was building a very professional website that shows the breadth and depth of our services with client examples and testimonials.
