HD Voice: Ooma Keeps the Promotions Coming
By Stefania Viscusi, Assignment Desk Editor
VoIP provider Ooma is once again offering customers the chance to receive a gift by spreading the word about their offerings.
The “Refer a Friend” promotion, which was a success in the past for the company, has been brought back and customers will receive a $25 Amazon gift card for each person that signs up for Ooma using their referral code.
In addition, those newly signed on customers will also be receiving $50 off the Ooma Telo – the device that makes it possible to have free, clear and reliable local and long distance U.S. calling using VoIP technology.
Once customers log into the “Refer a Friend” page in My Ooma, they can generate up to 3 referral codes to be shared with friends – so customers can potentially earn up to $75 to use at Amazon.com (News - Alert) if their friends make the move to Ooma. Check out all the program details HERE.
Just last week, the company also brought back their popular Twitter “TeloFriend” contest, which awarded one lucky customer, who tweeted about the cost savings they’ve realized using Ooma, with a free download of the company’s mobile HD Voice App.
During a recent video interview with TMC (News - Alert) CEO Rich Tehrani, Dennis Peng, vice president of product management at Ooma highlighted the importance of voice quality, particularly with calls being made over the Internet, and discussed the technologies Ooma is employing to ensure customers have high quality conversations.
According to Peng, the company’s Pure Voice technology offers a way to “dramatically improve the reliability of calls made over the Internet” by detecting packet loss on the Internet connection and then compensating for that loss.
