Actually I hardly ever answer the phone, it goes to voicemail most of the time. In the spring I make more of an effort to answer. I just answer "Hi this is HOOLIE"

I save their numbers in my phone and greet them by name....I think it makes the customer feel special.

I have the same issue. My mowing is a side business and I use my cell phone as my business phone. I have found that if I don't know who is calling I just answer Hello. If it is one of my customers I know because I have them stored in the phone

Yes Sir'.......Many people do not think of the little things, or maybe they take it for granted since they already have their buisness
