As a business to business telephone answering service, Message Takers has been a member of Working Breakfast in Leicester for over twelve years now. We find it’s a great way to build relationships and grow the business within the local business community. Working Breakfast is a business networking group who meet every Thursday morning before the working day begins at College Court in Leicester.
During a Working Breakfast meeting, every member has their opportunity to give a one-minute presentation in order to generate leads and referrals from others around the table. The agenda also allows for one member within the group to make a ten-minute presentation on a rotational basis and today it was our turn to do so.
Whilst many members of the group know Message Takers well and we’ve also had the opportunity to share advice with them, today we wanted to go back to basics and we used the ten-minutes to introduce our service. We talked about our time in business and introduced members to our one-month trial. We explained how those that take on the trial continue to use the services that we provide, including our additional back office support alongside the telephone answering.
It was a good chance to talk members through processes and explain that whilst we take messages for clients, we can also act as a receptionist and simply transfer the calls they want straight though to them.
We shared some testimonials, which included one of our very first clients who joined us in 1997 and still uses the service today. Another testimonial came from a client who’s daughter was three when she took on our service to allow her to spend more time with her young family, she retains our services to this day and her daughter is now sixteen. It’s lovely to explain these successes to others, but also felt like a proud moment for us to reflect on our successes simply by remembering these instances.
There are a number of members who use our services and when we spoke about the way we work, explaining that when we answer the phone on behalf of a company, our attitude is that we work form them. This was greatly enhanced by our knowledge of some of their clients that call into Message Takers and members around the table echoed this as we gave our presentation.
