Time is all we really have in this life, and it if were up to most of us, we’d add a few hours to each day. Sometimes, 24 hours doesn’t seem like enough. You have so much to do for your business, your family needs your time, you have hobbies you’d like to enjoy and there are so many other things that you have to do.
Everything takes up time and it can be difficult when you feel like you have to commit a large amount of your 168 hours per week to your business. Some business owners work 80+ hours every week, but there’s a better way. Here’s how you can gain 1-3 hours back or even more, every single day.
The Phone Won’t Stop Ringing!
You know it’s good for business. You know it’s because of your most recent marketing efforts. You know its potential sales and new customers, but the phone simply won’t stop ringing!
How are you supposed to get through the long to-do list on your desk if you have to stop every few minutes to answer the phone? Then, there’s that caller with what seems like an endless number of questions and problems. It may seem like you’ll never get anything done.
Are You Giving Each Caller Great Customer Service?
If you are so sick of the phone ringing that you have been tempted to leave it off the hook, throw it against the wall or simply turn it off for a week, you are probably not providing the best possible customer service. Your job may not be to answer the phone, but when it rings and nobody else gets it, you have to snap into action.
There’s a better way that doesn’t’ involve working an 4 extra hours every day just because you spent all day on the phone with customers.
Hiring a Virtual Receptionist Team
How do you make the phone stop ringing without killing your business? How do you get work done in the allotted 6 to 8 hours each day that you should be working? How do you build your business, never miss another phone call and gain 3 or more hours back in every single day?
Simple. Hire a Virtual Receptionist Team!
A team of virtual receptionists will make your phone go silent, but your appointment schedule or order queue fill up. They will take 95% of phone-related tasks off your hands, leaving you to handle only the most important phone calls.
If you want to capture a few more hours in every day, avoid the distraction of a ringing phone and grow your business, you need a team of virtual receptionist. They will take your orders, schedule your appointments, handle general customer service questions, make follow up calls and, yes, they will handle that caller with an endless number of questions.
No longer will you have to look at the clock as a customer talks your ear off. No longer will you need to feel like you wasted the entire day on the phone. Instead, you can get your work done, go home early, spend time with your family and watch your business soar.
What will it Cost?
You may be thinking there’s no way a team of virtual receptionists giving you so much time back can be affordable. However, hiring a virtual receptionist service is far more affordable than just one traditional receptionist. In addition, they will cover your phones for more than 8 hours a day, they never take breaks and they never miss a call.
Since you will be hiring a team, you get full coverage, even when one virtual receptionist is on a break. This means more sales opportunities, happier customers and never worrying again because you missed a call. Along with all these benefits, your virtual receptionist team will provide far better customer service, as they are trained to handle callers all day long.
The cost for this service can be as little as $100 a month. It depends on how much coverage you need and the call volume you expect. However, even with a high call volume, you may only need to spend about $500 to $1,000 per month, which is about one-third the cost of a full time traditional receptionist.
If you’re sick of losing time and you find yourself highly annoyed whenever the phone rings, hire a team of virtual receptionists. Imagine working only a 40 hour week and having two full days off on weekends. This is really possible with a virtual receptionist team.
