When you are your business everything centres round you! When I make this statement I’m talking about sole traders or registered businesses that are run by one person. From handyman to financial advisor or podiatrist to the accountant, many business models provide a preferable standard of working and living to those with the skills. Also, many franchise opportunities offer a profitable business to those who wish to work by themselves for themselves.
There are many benefits associated with working alone, because you are (in the main) in control of your working hours and the customers you chose to work with. You are also free of the responsibilities that come with employing staff and you can maintain your standards without relying on others to meet your expectations.
However, when everything falls to you, there are times when it becomes difficult to work alone. One major difficulty is that you cannot be in more than one place at a time. This can lead to compromise or neglect in certain areas. One area that we are very familiar with is telephone answering. Are you fortunate enough to be able to take a call from a customer each and every time they need you? Or do you have to turn to family members or your voicemail when you are in meetings?
I won’t go into huge detail about short falls in leaving customers in the hands of your voicemail as this is territory we have visited and covered on a number of previous occasions within my blogs. However, as business people we do know that this isn’t the best solutions. What you may not know is that there is support available for telephone answering here at Message Takers.
Adopting our telephone answering services comes without the responsibilities and costs associated with employing staff, but it certainly adds professionals to your team. This allows you the freedom to go into meetings or simply be unavailable, but in business terms your business is open and your telephone is being answered in a professional manner. Message Takers can also handle enquiries on your behalf, process customer orders and book appointments too. To find out more about a very straightforward and simple set up message taking, call handling and office administration service call me on 01858 439000.
