3 Reasons Not To Rely on your answerphone
If you’re a small business owner, ensuring you’re available to answer calls from prospects and customers is important. After all, if a call goes unanswered you can end up missing out on valuable leads and even sales.
Perhaps you rely on your answerphone to step in when you’re unavailable. After all, people are bound to leave a message aren’t they?
But what happens if they don’t?
Or what happens if they get fed up hearing an engaged tone and hang up before you’ve even had the chance to ask them to leave a message?
Whilst your answerphone is going to capture a lot of callers, are you missing out on enough potential business for you to seek out an alternative?
If so a free switchboard service could be the solution you are looking for.
Here are three reasons why:
- Your callers will NOT hear an engaged tone. Instead their call will be answered by the virtual switchboard that will play your personalised welcome message. And if you can’t tend to the call immediately, they can wait on the line listening to music.
- If a caller hangs up, as long as their number is not withheld, you will receive a text message and an email address detailing their phone number. This is a really valuable benefit that provides you with the information you need to call back. You could say it means you may never miss a call again.
- It’s free. Virtual switchboards cost nothing to use and are quick and easy to set up. In addition, they have a wide range of functionality that can add value to your business now.
Is it time you stopped relying on your answerphone?
