If you have read any of the other posts on this blog, then you probably know quite a bit about virtual receptionists already. You probably know about the money that you can save from hiring a virtual receptionist instead of a traditional receptionist. You probably know about the ways in which a virtual receptionist keeps your business up to date in the digital world. You probably know about the guaranteed professionalism that comes with hiring a virtual receptionist service like Gabbyville. If you have not read the other posts, then you can check them out, but take our word for it, virtual receptionists offer so many benefits to businesses that you would have to be crazy not to have one. That’s because hiring a virtual receptionist lets you do what is important.
If you could map out just how much time you spend on the phone each day, you would probably be surprised. For many business owners and operators, being away from the phone would just be a complete nightmare. You have the chance of missing important calls that could be potential customers that might go off to another competing business. Or that call might be an important client or business partner and missing the call could mean losing a contract or seeming unprofessional. At the same time, that same phone that is so important can also be a real burden. Many of those calls from customers or even the important ones from business partners or clients could probably be handled by someone other than you. So many of those calls are mundane details about hours or prices, or they are calls that need a response, but the timing of the response is not necessarily important. That’s where the virtual receptionist comes in. Literally all of these problems are solved with a virtual receptionist. A virtual receptionist can take those mundane calls and give the important and relevant information, so you never have to worry about customers moving on to a competing business. A virtual receptionist can take those important calls too, and they can make sure the message gets to you, or if the call is too important to wait, then a virtual receptionist can transfer that call directly to you. All of this means that you have time to do what you really should be doing. That early map of how much time you spend doing different parts of your job is no longer comprised primarily of answering phone calls and talking on the phone. Instead, with a virtual receptionist, you will find that you are getting more done and have more time to do the important work you should be doing.
A virtual receptionist also means that you are not tied to that phone. That means you can get out of the office. You can go to job sites, you can get to important meetings, and most importantly you can get away from work from time to time. You can do all of this because your virtual receptionist has things covered, and they can make sure you are still connected even when you are away from the office. They do that by forwarding your calls to your cell phone. They can also forward messages to you, and they can forward them through a variety of ways that best fits your preferences. If you want messages sent to you through text, then they can do that for you. They can send voicemails to your phone. They can even send you audio recordings of messages to your email. With a virtual receptionist, you can get away without having to worry about everything getting away from you.
Finally, virtual receptionists help you do all of those important things you will be doing with all of your extra time, and they help you do them better. Because your virtual receptionist is a digital experience, you will have all of the benefits of a more technologically savvy office. Your virtual receptionist can organize your schedule and text you updates when you have something important coming up. They can set a video conferencing call for you with people in all different parts of the world. There really is so much that a virtual receptionist can help you do and so many more things that they can help you do even better.
