The percentage of first time UK callers who won’t leave a voicemail if their call isn’t answered directly*.
This is a 2014 statistic, it has probably changed. We doubt it’s for the better.
People are more phobic about their phones than ever before, the little box that started as a way of talking to others is now so much more about photos and written messages. However there are times when picking up the phone is inevitable and necessary, especially in business. And callers just want to get through, not leave a message, and worse, wait for a call back.
In our world of instant gratification, unanswered calls, telephone tag, delayed call backs and the easy opportunity to go and deal with the next company on the list is a massive challenge for businesses.
Especially small businesses, and most crucially when you’ve spent time, effort and money on branding, advertising and honing your social media. It’s money down the drain if you can’t snag that call and bag that sale.
There is an answer.
It’s a no brainer for your business.
It is surprisingly inexpensive and…
…you can try it for free, with no obligation for a week.
