How to avoid losing business opportunities while you’re on holiday

| |

Going on holiday is an essential part of life. For many UK business owners, though, worrying about missed opportunities can make it stressful!

This is especially so if you:

  • Don’t have a staff member available to answer calls
  • Won’t be able to be contacted by phone while you’re away
  • Don’t want anything interrupting your much-needed R&R

After all, you never know when a new client or customer may call. And, if no one is available to answer, they may simply take their business elsewhere.

Use virtual receptionists to answer calls while you’re away

Whether for a day, a week or a month, using a short-term call answering service can provide you with peace of mind.

There’s no need to install software or plod through complicated set-up procedures. With a virtual reception service, you only need to provide your business name, a short description of what you do and where you’d like messages sent. 

Then, whenever you’d like to turn the service on, simply use your telephone keypad to forward your calls and within seconds you’ll have a team of receptionists ready to answer your phone. 

You can rest easy knowing you’re not losing out on business opportunities and make the most of exploring new places, spending time with loved ones or recharging your batteries.

Keep in mind, it’s also the perfect solution if your in-house receptionist is going on holiday. There’s no need for calls to be missed when you’re without a dedicated staff member available to answer the phone.

Choosing the right short-term answering service

It’s important to choose a call answering service that fits your business needs and is simple to set up. Especially if you’ve left it to the week before you go away.

When choosing a temporary answering service provider, here are the essentials to look for:

  1. Professional receptionists based in the UK
  2. 24/7 availability
  3. No lock-in contract
  4. Ability to set up in minutes
  5. Fast speed of answering
  6. Emails and/or SMS messages with call details
  7. Vast experience

It may also be important to you to have business critical calls transferred to yourself or a team member. Or appointments scheduled for you so that your calendar is full upon your return.

With ReceptionHQ, you get all of the above. And our team of virtual receptionists can be answering your calls in next to no time! Make the most of your holiday, knowing your business is in good hands.
