The Great Phone Tree of Knowledge

Who do you go to when you have a question about your small business? Would it be helpful if you could ask an expert instead of trying to figure everything out alone? Well, that was our initial goal with The Great Phone Tree of Knowledge - help small businesses solve tough questions.

We took a big red phonebooth, connected an IP-phone and used Phonebooth business VoIP services to power our first social experiment at Social Fresh Charlotte. Any conference attendee could step into the booth, pick up the phone and immediately be connected with one of our experts on call.

We are going to keep doing this at various events and functions to build a resource for small businesses to get answers. We'll continue to add to the list and let us know what you think at @phonebooth on Twitter.
