I have my mother answering the phone for me while I'm out, it seems people are always more open to women when first talking. When she answered the phone she always gets small talk going on with potential clients, then when I get there they always compliment on how nice the person was that answerd the phone. I'm trying to find out how or if its possible to have the calls forwarded to my cell phone after X amount of rings. I've heard of others doing that, not sure if all companies do it though.
That could be a good way to save your lost sales Troy.

Troy I realy think you should consider getting someone to answer your calls. Someone maybe like a stay at home mother. Someone in the area or not. Where you pay them per day possibly.
We need to streamline all this more and more in your business and take the stress off you. You could then call in to who ever is taking your calls, during the day when you are freed up from what you are doing. Then you can decide who needs a returned call and the priority of it.
I think not having this is going to hold back your growth. Because when people are reaching out to you for your services, it's too easy for them to just call someone else. Having someone answer your phone will give you a competitive advantage.
Well, I am hoping that perhaps my wife can start doing it. She is transfering to another hospital here soon, and for the first month or two she will only be working 24hrs a week. So I will throw her into doing it for a while.
Well, Michigans minimum wage just got raised up big time. *It is going from like $5.15, to $7.40 in less than two years. *They are doing a two year phase program. *So I could see myself spending around $350 a week. *If you take that to what I think I could make extra in sales, I personally feel at this time for me, it wouldn't be worth it paying someone that much.
Well, if they were doing it out of their own home, couldn't they be contractors? And since they are working out of their own home, I would think you could pay them less than that because, where else could they do this and still stay home?
