How a call answering service will benefit your small business

When a customer – or potential customer – calls a business, it’s because their query is too urgent for email or other channels of communication. Or, it might be because they are looking for a more personal response. Either way, if someone calls your business, you will want to ensure their query is dealt with promptly, to the best of your ability.

When you’re running a small business, you might be so busy juggling all your other commitments that you don’t always have a free hand for answering the phone. This puts you at risk of alienating customers and leaving them feeling undervalued. Often, this will lead to them taking business elsewhere.

So, you’re left with a conundrum. How do you ensure the invaluable lead generation and customer service resource of the telephone isn’t neglected, whilst maintaining all your other responsibilities as a business owner? The solution – have someone else do it.

Now, you could hire someone specifically to deal with call answering for your business. However, taking on a new member of staff is expensive. Not only are there wages to consider, but also the set up cost of a new employee, the time it will take you to get them up to speed. There’s considerations of sick leave and holiday to be made. All of this comes after you’ve hired your new employee, which in itself is a mammoth task.

Or, and this is where we come in, you could utilise a call answering service.
