Your company’s incoming calls lay the foundation for your future success.
That’s why it’s so important to make sure that they are handled professionally and quickly every time. By working with an answering service, your company can reap multiple benefits that can easily outweigh the initial costs.
Here are four reasons why small business can benefit from an answering service:
1. Answering services can save you money.
Yep – you read that right! While virtual answering services aren’t free, they don’t cost as much as a secretary. A professional secretary comes with a full time salary and benefits – which can be a strain on your bottom line as you’re growing. In contrast, an answering service can do the same job for significantly less. In addition, you’ll boost your bottom line since you’ll be able to take all of those calls you would have missed.
2. Answering services make a great first impression.
The first experience that your new customer has with your company should be a good (or great!) one. Since secretaries on site aren’t always a viable option, and employees are often too busy to give callers the attention they need, an answering service is often your best option. Your answering service virtual receptionist can make a great first impression for your company, and create the positive and meaningful interaction that can lead to repeat business.
3. Answering services help you embrace mobility.
When you’re building a small business, there are lots of times when you need to be away from your desk and out of the office. Meetings with new and potential clients, local referral groups, vendor visits and more can pull you away, and missing important calls. Instead of missing calls when you’re out taking care of business, your answering service can help cover the phones. You’ll be free to do what you need to get done, and your callers will be treated with attention and care.
4. Answering services can give you and your staff the gift of time.
You and your staff need to spend your time on where it counts most – delivering your product or service in the best way possible. It’s hard to do that when you personally need to answer the phones. An answering service can reduce the time you spend on calls, so you and your staff can have more time to build the business.
