Why Should Your Business Outsource Your Scheduling Needs?

Outsource Your SchedulingYou are a savvy business owner that constantly tries to economize and strategize the inner workings of your successful company. So why would you care to outsource the scheduling of your appointments and consultations? Read on and learn why we are the smart business decision to help you outsource your scheduling needs.

Not only are we a successful 30-year-old business telephone answering service that provides virtual receptionists 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but we are also a team of virtual assistants and schedulers that can make your business run more efficiently and smoothly. Want to know how? We thought you’d never ask!

Right now, we are speaking to those small business owners and mobile office entrepreneurs that cannot afford or see the need in hiring a full-time receptionist to answer their business telephone lines. You may have a problem with relinquishing control and trusting a support staff to handle your calling customer inquiries.

As a business owner, you need to realize that your talents and time will be better spent in the running and handling of your company as opposed to being your own receptionist. We here at A Courteous Communications telephone answering service are here to tell you that yes, you can afford to invest in our 24 hour call center services and you can trust our 24 hour telephone answering service with the success and growth of your business.

With telephone rate plans as low as 35 cents per minute or 78 cents per call, you are able to justify the investment in retaining a virtual receptionist. Say we knew that the next caller that phoned into your business was a new customer seeking out your services, let’s take a moment to view your average sale capture in the example below.

Say you are a car detailing company that charges $75 for an average mobile car cleaning and detailing service. Let’s say that a new customer found your website and called your offices on a Saturday at 9:00 am. Of course, since you are your own receptionist, it is up to you to be on call and have the responsibility of answering your business lines at any time of day. What if you have a family tradition of morning breakfasts with no interruptions? What if you had a late Friday night and slept through your alarm? What if you are taking a shower or are otherwise unavailable to answer that ringing potential customer’s call? It’s a heartbreaking fact, but you will most likely lose that customer and not only will you lose that particular service job; you will have lost the opportunity to turn them into loyal customers that bring in monthly business revenue to your struggling new business.

If you had a reliable virtual receptionist and virtual scheduler here at A Courteous Communications working on your team, not only would we answer all of your calls in two rings or less, but we will take it a step further and schedule that car cleaning service for you. So, in this instance and example, you would have paid anywhere from $2.00 – $4.00 for that one call and have seen a return on your investment of $71.00 to $73.00. Making money while you sleep or attend to other business tasks has never been easier.
