“Should I hire a Wake-Up Call Service?” It’s a legitimate question found on many professional business forums. At first glance, hiring a live person to wake you up might seem more like a luxury than a necessity. If you dive a little deeper and review all the customizations available, you’ll start to see why more and more professionals are enjoying the human wake-up experience.
Here are 10 reasons that showcase why paying someone a couple of quarters to give you a wake-up call can drastically change how you approach your career.
Snoozing a real person is tougher than snoozing your alarm app. You can snooze your digital alarm by smacking any button while you’re still half-asleep. With a live wake-up call, you’re forced to answer the phone and hold a brief conversation.
Break your snooze button addiction by having a human motivator that holds you accountable each workday. You can have your virtual assistant give you a daily wake-up call based on your schedule. If you’re really not a morning person, you can request a second wake-up call to guarantee that you’re awake.
It’s 2016, you have an alarmingly wide variety of alarm clock methods to choose from. Depending on your preference, you can choose to wake-up to your favorite song, a funny joke or a standard ringtone. You’ll see a lot of benefits from the customizable call option if you’re serious about making punctuality a priority in your life.
With a virtual assistant, you can fully customize your wake-up experience. Be creative and build a custom answer phrase you’d like a live person to wake you up with. Your virtual assistant can:
A lot of professionals that are required to travel know the anxiety that comes with dealing with everchanging wake-up routines. Whatever appointment brought you out of the office is important and you have to show up on time.
Instead of relying on a hotel desk operator, hire a virtual service that will wake you up when you’re away on business. The longer you use a service, the more relationship building opportunities you create. After a few wake-up calls, you just might get used to Sara calling you and greeting you with any messages you received while you’ve been away.
Whether you need someone to wake you up to attend the important seminar you’re speaking at or to make sure you don’t miss your red-eye flight, we’ve got you covered. Opt to have a sporadic wake-up call schedule that matches any important events on your calendar.
Make a note that the wake-up call is urgent and sensitive, and we’ll call you every minute until we personally speak with you. With this type of support, you’ll never sleep in and miss out on a game-changing event.
A 24-hour Wake-Up Call Service can support any time zone you’re in or any time zone you’ll be visiting. With each new alarm you create, your service will also want to know your intended location. This can be accomplished with a simple phone call:
“Hi, this is Mark Thomas with ABC Sales. I’m going to need my standard wake-up call tomorrow morning for 6:00 am. I’m in Seattle.”
If you’re native language isn’t English, no problem. A reputable wake-up service will have multilingual assistants that can wake you up in your preferred language.
There are some professions that require you to be alert and on time every day. Snoozing an alarm clock while half-sleeping or not hearing the buzzing noise could end up costing you a fortune.
• Olympians and Athletes
We all laughed at the Seinfeld episode when Jean-Paul described why he missed the 1992 Olympic Games because he overslept. It wasn’t the snooze button or mistaking am for pm; his ringer volume was too low. Although this was just a TV show plot, it happens.
A few real Olympians slept through their alarm clocks and nearly missed their events. British weightlifter, Jack Oliver, “had intended to be up at 6am ahead of his competition at London 2012, but an hour later was still in bed.” The Australian teenager shooter, Alethea Sedgman, had the same issue before her event, “I slept straight through my alarm. I've never done that before, I'm an idiot.”
• Pilots and Flight Attendants
There’s a lot of pilot humor out there, here at the answering service, we get a laugh out of this one. “Yes Operator, I’d like a wake-up call at 0400, and when you do… I’d also like you to tell me where I am, what time it is, what day it is, what airline I work for and my name.”
While it shows the occupational hazards of a traveling professional, it also shows how crazy you can feel when constantly going from Point A to Point B.
The great thing about having a virtual wake-up assistant is being able to sleep soundly knowing that you have someone that is going to keeping calling until you answer.
Many of our clients choose to expand on our wake-up call services by adding reminder calls as well. Your virtual assistant can call you with a reminder to finalize your sales report or advise of the deadline given by your attorney.
This optional service can replace your current mobile calendar reminder alerts. Bringing a human element to your very important appointments and tasks will give you a higher level of accountability.
Since you can customize your wake-up call message, you can have a virtual assistant call you to deliver a unique message on special days. The more you think outside of the box with creative ideas, the more a professional wake-up service can help you.
If you’re looking for that perfect gift to get your loyal customers or promising employees, gift them a VIP wake-up experience. “Our basic plan can cost as little as $0.45 per call and is a perfect way to encourage someone to continue on a professional, successful path.”
Your gift recipient will be able to fully customize their wake-up call greeting, script, etc. We also offer monthly packages so you don’t have to worry about signing up someone for a long-term commitment.
Your wake-up service will be available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. That’s right, we’re open and available to you on national holidays as well. You have constant access to us so you can make instant changes to your account.
Creating a new wake-up call or modifying an existing one requires one simple step. You can call, email or text us when you’d like to create a new wake-up alarm. We’ll ask you just a few questions.
With a wake-up service, you’re dealing with real people so there’s no downloading of software or frustration with malfunctioning self-service apps. Depending on your requests, placing a basic wake-up call order can take as little as 30 seconds.
