Hi all, I wonder how you manage customer phone calls if you are a one person or small operation without having somebody dedicated to answering phone calls while you are out on the job. Are your customers ( potential ones in particular ) happy to leave messages on your answering machine or do you get a lot of 'hang-ups' and no message because people hate talking to answering machines? Are your customers happy with calling your mobile/cell phone? Or is that a real turn off resulting in potential customer loss? How do you manage? What is the best phone setup given that employing a person to answer phones is not an option? I'm currently considering using a paging system so that customers do get a human at the other end and are therefore more likely to leave me a message. What are your experiences and how do you solve your communication needs? Thanks!
