Is an Answering Machine Answering Your Business Phone Line?

The first impression matters a lot most of the time in business. This is because it is not always possible to get a second chance to make a first impression. People always make snap decisions and judgments about everything we encounter about any business. This is part of our “flight or flee” instincts. Since we were designed for self-preservation, our instincts were developed to make speedy judgments to keep animals away from eating us.

So, in business, first impressions do matter. The first impression to a potential client and customer is very important to whether they will do business with your company or not. One of your front doors to customers is your business phone line. The way you answer your business phone line can make or break a customer relationship. When it comes to having an effective telephone communication with a customer, it is better not done by answering machines. What type of answering service are you using for your business?

A real person is always better than voice mail. There is always a common complaint by all callers being answered by a computer answering system. This is because people hate to leave a message as requested by answering machines always. This is mostly done in another way when callers will have to make some mechanical choices before getting to a real person. Most callers do hang up because they are mostly confused and frustrated. This does result in a loss of a customer.

This is one more reason why it is better to be attended to by the real person. It is more stimulating for your business callers to be greeted by a real person. People always want their calls to be answered swiftly by a real person rather than a machine and to know their call is important.
