benefits of after hours answering services

Building a strong relationship with our customers means that we are there when they need us at any hour. In today’s connected world, our customers expect 24/7 availability from the companies they do business with.

When customers feel that they need your assistance with something, they may reach out via phone, and if their call is forwarded to voicemail, 60% of them will hang up rather than leaving a message. This missed connection can force the customer to reach out to a competitor or even be a missed opportunity to engage the customer into purchasing more products or services.

Each customer that you work with can be swayed by a competitor, especially when they are more available than you are. Have you ever visited a business that happened to be closed when you were ready to make a purchase? The disappointment of finding that business closed often forces someone to visit a different business and that unavailability will often leave a lasting impression.

This is why a professional answering service can be beneficial to you, regardless of your business size or the industry you are in.
