When you own your own business, it's easy to try and take on everything yourself to save money. The only problem is, some aspects of your company tend to suffer because, let's face it – you just can't do it all. If you're acting as your own receptionist and answering your business calls, you should maybe consider NOT…and here's a few reasons why.
It kills productivity
Did you know it takes an average of 23 minutes to bounce back after being interrupted? If that's the case, you'll never get anything done!
Not a good first impression
Not only does it come off just a tad bit unprofessional, but it can also make your company appear smaller in size. When your callers reach a super friendly, professional receptionist, they instantly feel as though they can trust you.
It cost you money
It's impossible for you to be available 24/7 to answer every single call that comes in for your business. However, if you were to hire a Virtual Receptionist Service, such as OmniCall, you would have an entire team of receptionists. You would never miss another call or another potential customer.
