Did you know by something as simple as missing calls, just how many potential business opportunities you could be missing out on? This is especially true for non office based companies such as builders and entrepreneurs. For these types of businesses, it can be extremely difficult to answer the phone whilst working.Even if you can answer the call, how effective will you be without easy access to your calendar and any other important information you need for the call and further meetings? Will you remember to log down those mental notes and appointments? It may not be worth the risk and you would be better off financially if you hired a Virtual Assistant to answer your calls.
According to BT, 85% of missed calls, will not call back later. As an example, if you need a particular service quickly and the first company you call doesn’t answer, it’s likely you will phone the next company you have found on the list.Even using an answering machine may not completely solve the problem, as 75% of people will not leave a voicemail and just move onto the next.
At PS Virtual, we offer a call answering service, as well as accompanying administration tasks. It is understandable that small business owners and sole traders do not want to pay for a service that they think they can complete themselves. However, working with a Virtual Assistant ensures that you are not missing business opportunities and have more free time to actually carry out the work and know that all those potential business opportunities will still be waiting for you to focus on at the end of your day.
At PS Virtual, our experienced PAs can give your business a fully staffed and professional appearance. If you’re in this situation, it’s certainly something to consider if you wish to be more organised and increase your revenue. Contact us here for more information. We would be delighted to hear from you.
