Struggling with Working & Answering Your Phone? We’ll Answer Your Calls for You

Wednesday, May 27th, 2020

Phone being answered

Keep doing what you do best, and leave the rest to us.

You don’t have to work and answer your phone.

You don’t have to switch your phone to silent every time you’re in a meeting or on a job, and you definitely shouldn’t be relying on your voicemail to run your business. Most people wont leave a message and instead call one of your competitors.

A ringing phone can be a nuissance, it can sound unprofessional when you’re with customers, and it’s distracting if you’re focused on working. However, you know all too well that the next call you receive could be a sale and an opportunity to move your business forward. Every call matters.

Don’t miss a call, get every call answered while you’re busy and focused on doing what you do best!

We’ll never sound impersonal like a call centre – in fact we pride ourselves on sounding just like an extension of your own workforce. Our small team will get to know your products, services, and callers – your callers will even get to know your new virtual team too!

8 great reasons to use our telephone answering service:

1. We’ll answer every call with your own personalised business greeting.

2. We’ll form a database of your frequent callers and important clients, when they call we’ll give them the recognition and warmth of service they deserve – just as you would.

3. Your business will sound well established, callers will assume you have your own receptionist!

4. We can book in appointments on your behalf.

5. We can take orders and process payments.

6. We can deal with general enquiries and provide answers to your most frequently asked questions.

7. You’re always in control of when we answer your calls and when you’re free and would like to answer them yourself. We’ll help you maintain a healthy work life balance.

8. We can answer your calls during office hours, extended hours, or even 24/7 if you need it!

…and we could go on and on and on!

Our service is fully tailored to the needs of your business. Our staff and services can adapt as your business grows or changes, and we’ll always do everything we can to support you through any challenges you might face – however unexpected.

rising hot air balloons

Is your business starting to pick up, are you experiencing more enquiries, more emails, more orders and more strain? It’s a great problem to have right?! But you might be struggling to juggle it all with a reduced workforce, or even alone, you might be trying to manage your business from home and the demands of balancing professionalism with family life.

It’s great news that your business is picking up, so lets keep it that way! As interest and sales are building, you might find yourself in desperate need of an extra pair of hands but unable to justify the cost.

We can supply you with a virtual land-line number so that you no longer have to give out your mobile number (which looks more professional and protects your privacy).
