The Importance of an Answering Service for Your Business
Since our staff is ready to answer calls 24 hours a day, it leaves more time to focus on the other aspects of running your business, without the distraction of a ringing phone. All of your calls will be answered, even on holidays, increasing your client reach by extending the business hours.
Did you know that more than 50% of people hang up when their call goes to voicemail? A live answering service allows you to receive calls that would otherwise be lost to a computerized voicemail. Plus, our trained staff knows your business, giving clients a sense of all that your business has to offer. When people engage with a human, rather than with an automated system, they feel more important. Your business is taking time to speak to them individually rather than leaving them to a robot. Plus, an answering service saves your business money by eliminating the need to hire a full-time employee.
Professional First Impressions are Essential
A good first impression is important. It very well could be the deciding factor whether a potential customer or patient will use your services or decide to look elsewhere. People can develop a snap judgment of any business within mere seconds. When a friendly and trained professional answers a phone call, your potential client will feel satisfied with the business. If the first interaction with a client goes well, they are more likely to continue supporting the business.
Some customers judge a business based on the tone of voice, greeting, helpfulness, confidence, credibility, and responsiveness of that first phone call. Our experienced agents focus on pleasing your repeat and potential clients with individualized and polished information. An answering service will not leave the customer on hold, discouraging them from supporting your business.
