Telephone Answering Solutions That Work
Small business owners and start-ups have it tough. Because you are trying to get the most value out of every dollar that you spend you usually end up running your business with minimal staff. What this generally means is that you the owner are trying to wear a lot of different hats. One minute you might be out quoting a customer while the next you are carrying out the work. All the while you are trying to take all of those incoming telephone calls.
There has got to be an easier option! Well with a virtual receptionist service from Cloud Phone Answering you can have the best of both worlds.Our services cost significantly less than the cost of having a full time staff member and we also provide you with the flexibility to expand your use of our service virtually instantly. We give you the flexibility that your small business needs.
It really is quite clever in the way that it works. When you sign up for a service we allocate you a telephone number in a state of your choice. You can then either use that telephone number as your business number or you can divert your calls to the number. You then decide how you want your callers to be greeted and tell us what you would like us to say. You can change this greeting as often as you like. After that you tell us how you want us to get your messages to you. The majority of people these days get messages by email although you still have the option of SMS.
Once it's all set up you can sleep easy that your incoming telephone calls are being answered promptly and professionally. And our service is not going to break the bank. We have packages to suit anything from a small to a heavy user of our services. Our average customer spends around $100 per month all up. Not bad for the peace of mind that you get.
Professional Answering Service
You will be in good company when you sign up for one of our professional answering services. Our customers include attorney's, CPA's, entrepreneurs, IT consultants, architects, eCommerce stores plus a whole load more. Regardless of the type of business that you operate, you will receive the same first class level of service from our team of star virtual receptionists.
Whenever we answer the phone on your behalf we will answer with a message that has been agreed with you. For example if your business name is "Larry the accountant's CPA practice", we could answer with good morning/good afternoon, Larry the accountant's CPA practice this is Mary speaking, how may I help you. Our receptionist would then be able to either transfer the call through to Larry or one of his capable staff or potentially take a message that can be forwarded through to you by email or SMS.
Virtual Receptionists To Help Your Business
Our virtual receptionists don't have to just answer your incoming calls. They can also assist with giving out information to your customers (under your guidance) or gathering information in web forms. It may be that you have a new marketing campaign for a new product going on and you want to make all of your callers aware of these new products. Our virtual receptionists can potentially direct your callers to a web page, alert them of the new product or carry out a quick survey to gather more information. The possibilities are endless.
Flexibility When You Need It
Nothing is linear in business. One week sales can be booming while the next week everyone is sitting looking at the door. Because of this, it can be really difficult for small business holders to budget their staffing levels and ensure that they have an appropriate number of people available at all times. To solve this problem, why not bolster your internal team with a couple of virtual assistants. Our assistants only get paid when they are working so if there are no enquiries coming through then you don't need to pay them. It makes really good business sense!
