The success of your small business depends upon consistent business from customers. You can not afford to miss calls from current or potential customers needing you, whether there is a legitimate reason for the person responsible for answering your phones to be busy with another call or out of the office, whether it’s a weekend or a holiday, or simply your vacation.
Many callers object to voicemail. 70% hang up when voicemail answers.
Callers want immediate service. They want to talk with a live person.
As a small business owner, you are often caught between a rock and a hard place. You need to service your clients but you must also find and respond to new clients.

Small Business Live Answering Service: Your Business’s Growth Engine
Best-Kept Secrets for Small Business Success
- First Impressions Matter. The most important contact you have with your customer is your first contact. Typically, your first contact happens when the customer calls you. Small businesses need to optimize this first contact.
- Voicemail Is A Turnoff. People don’t like voicemail. They want to talk with a live person immediately. Small businesses must avoid voicemail by having a live person answering their calls 24×7, 365 days a year.
- People Like Efficiency And Warmth. When current customers or potential customers call a small business for service, they want to feel like their needs are heard accurately and that they are important to the person recording the detail of their requests. Small businesses need to have a live person answering their phones who is friendly, attentive, and respectful of the customer’s urgency to be serviced.
- Complete, Accurate Records Can Be Mined for Future Business. It’s definitely to true that every missed call is a missed opportunity. It’s also true, and often not understood by many, that inaccurate information cost small businesses money in both the short-term and the long-term. Obviously, if you receive the wrong phone number, you can not call your customer or prospect back. The secret is that small businesses need that phone number for future contacts with that customer – and, as a small business in growth mode, you need the email address, if you elect to have Advanced Answering Service collect that information, because email addresses are gold if you ever want to send a mass email to your customer base.
