The search for time has begun – How do you find time to make plans for 2018 during January?
A new year brings new resolutions and many will be eager to contact you this month from new business contacts to existing clients and customers, and then there’s the sales people with the aim of getting that little bit closer to making a deal with you too. This surge in contact will mean your phone could be ringing off the hook during January, leaving you very little time to do anything other than answer it.
In business we certainly recognise the importance of answering a ringing phone, because we know it could be a valued customer or important business contact. When you are a small business owner without the staff to handle telephone calls on your behalf, there’s very little choice but to pick up the ringing phone. However, it’s extremely frustrating when you find yourself listening to an automated sales message or responding to a scripted seller who’s asking how you are today.
So, the telephone could cause delays in your planning processes for 2018, because it becomes almost impossible to allot time without interruptions to make plans. Maybe some temporary assistance would benefit you this month, as Message Takers could handle telephone calls on your behalf. We offer an extremely affordable telephone answering service where we could handle all of your unwanted calls and ensure those you need to speak to get through to you. The great news is that unwanted sales calls are disregarded by our small team of telephonists as part of our telephone answering service. You not only benefit from the time saved in answering those calls, but you won’t be paying for us to handle them, because they won’t result in a transfer or message.
Message Takers works from your instructions and would either transfer the relevant calls you want to receive directly through to you or take detailed messages which include the caller’s contact details. It’s a confidential service where we answer your calls in your business name, which can give a great illusion of business growth. Essentially, the adoption of our service during January will give you time to make plans.
Telephone answering services with Message Takers can be set up very quickly, i.e. we could be answering calls on your behalf within a few hours of your call. It’s simple to set up and the first step you take is calling us on 01858 439000. We’d need to collect a few details from you and have an initial discussion about how you’d like us to handle calls. We’d ask you to confirm a few details via email and then get you set up.
