Moving Offices: What To Do To Ensure You Aren’t Missing Calls

For any small business, missing phone calls means missing out on potential customers. In many cases, when someone isn’t able to quickly reach a company, they’ll move on to a competitor, or otherwise simply won’t call again. That’s why it’s important to choose an office phone system where you’ll never risk missing a call – even if you aren’t able to answer right off.
Missed Calls Breed Mistrust
According to the 2017 Entrepreneurship Report from Drip Marketing, the most challenging aspect for small business owners is converting contacts/visitors into customers. Using Google Surveys, more than 1,000 small business owners across the U.S. were canvassed. The report suggests there is a zero percent chance that people will be interested in a company if they’re not able to contact them.

In a business-to-business (B2B) customer experience study by Walker, researchers say by 2020, customers will consider their overall experience with a company over price or product features. That’s all the more reason to ensure your office phone system is presenting a good impression.

Customers Turn to Phone Communication First
Even in an era of social media and email, many customers feel more comfortable discussing business details with a live person, over the phone. This is especially true when personal details are involved, such as banking data or other highly personal information. Phone conversations also allow questions to be asked and answered in real time. Given this fact, it’s important to present your customers with a strong and reliable office phone system by which to reach you.

Never Miss Another Call
Every small business owner is kept busy through the day with a myriad tasks. The schedule gets even more hectic when moving offices. You may think that during this time, you’ll be forced to miss a few calls before you can get set up in your new space. That’s not the case.
