Why Call Answering is the way to go for start-ups

Starting a business is a brilliant, exciting, busy, nerve-jangling time. It’s also the best time to start as you mean to go on, especially if you want to run your business and not the other way around.

It requires skills and planning to keep some time for you and yours, breaks and holidays. These things are truly vital if the business is going to have the best chance of success and leave you in good shape.

Don’t believe in the alleged ‘badge of honour’ of working 60 plus hours a week to ‘make it’! Careful planning, wise, easy-to-manage delegation can vastly reduce time that could be put to better use as you focus on growth and establishment. Business telephone calls are a great starting point.

Our Call Answering Service is an entry level, affordable message-taking service that frees up time, relieves the stress of taking calls at busy or inopportune times, and helps present a professional image to your callers. To boot, a call answered by a human rather than voicemail, can mean the difference between losing the gig and gaining the business. Unanswered calls put people off, and they move on to the next one down in the google search.

And, as your start-up grows, and as you hone your delegation skills, there will be so much more you can shift from your plate to ours, but that’s another story…

So, how to get started? It might require you to pick up the phone (01733 865007), or send us an email (hello@virtualpa.co.uk), or find us on socials (Facebook, Insta and Twitter).
