Here is the first in a series of sure-fire ways to sell more of your products or services to folks like me. You might want to write this down because it really is a can’t miss strategy. Do you have a pencil? Are you ready? Here it is:
You might think I am being a bit of a smarty pants here but it really can be as simple as that.
Many businesses have adopted a model of forwarding the business line to someone’s cell phone. I know I did. It seemed like a good idea at the time. “Our customers will love it” we thought. “They will be connected directly to me and I will be able to help them right away” we told ourselves. But is that the way it really works?
Whoever answers the phone wins!
I spend most days trying to reach small businesses like yours by phone and I’ve got to tell you, I reach one cell phone voice mail after another. If I am a shopper and you don’t answer your phone, I just go on to the next Google listing.
What’s the answer?
Business seems to be improving a little in my part of the world. Phones are starting to ring again. Maybe not enough to justify hiring a full time receptionist, but certainly enough to make answering the business line myself a bit of a challenge. What about an answering service? Don’t let the term throw you. Today’s answering service can do much more than scribble down a message. Think of them like a remote receptionist available 24/7. A prompt professional greeting every time.
