    Hello Fellow Blackhatters:

    I was just curious to see how many minutes/hours you spend on the phone daily conducting business or what have you?

    Business phone calls? Less than 10 minutes a day.

    I've set up my business and lifestyle so that I can be as mobile as possible, which boils down to reducing the opportunity for phone calls, whether it be sales or support.

    Phone usage and length will vary for every individual's position.

    In my opinion, if you're conducting business, it's always best to meet up in person.
    Keep phone talk short. It should serve as the bridge to the in-person meeting.

    I usually talk to my grandmother everyday for about 30 minutes. Other than that I spend about two hours on the phone with my brother because we are both in IM, same niche and for the most part the same methods. We talk a lot of strategy.

    It's hard to say, sometimes, less than 10 minutes, sometimes, more than 1 hour.
