You are a business entrepreneur of the 21st century. You have a great, state-of-the-art mobile phone and laptop that provides you access to the world wide web whenever you want and need it. Your voicemail and computer at home or office will take care of receiving mails and calls when you are not around. When you go back to your home and office, you listen to these voicemails and scan through your emails. Quite a good set-up, yes. However, how long does it take you to scan through a number of emails and phone calls before you actually get to those that will help your business grow?
Have you ever experienced missing an important email or call because your competent secretary was on leave or it was after-hours? Did you have to linger in the office and wait for that important phone call? Waiting - such a waste of valuable time for the budding and growing entrepreneur, right? Why don’t you get a voice-based virtual assistant?
Here’s what you get when you avail a voice-based virtual assistant:
Get those voicemails transcribed
Do you have time to listen to 10 voicemails? Probably yes, while you are preparing yourself a late dinner after your business meeting and learn that you missed an important information to mark up your product price during your meeting. How about a virtual assistant transcribes your voicemails and send it to your phone or email just as you receive them? Imagine receiving 12 voicemails, 10 of which are from telemarketers. The virtual assistant will definitely help you to be more productive!
Organize your Calendar
Did you ever experience calling a client and postponing the meeting because you have a bigger one coming up? Spare yourself the trouble and get a virtual assistant to do the juggling act for your schedules. The virtual assistant can call the potential customer for you and arrange the next meeting for you. All you have to do is conveniently check your schedule for the day.
Get the business information you need with one call
So you’re on your way to a business appointment and you forgot or need to verify some important information prior. You stop your car at the side of the road and check it. You also may have tried calling a friend or someone at home and instructing them on how to open the computer and get the information for you. This will work if they are always there to help you. What if they are not? What if you only have yourself? Get a virtual assistant!
Receive calls and answer emails for you when you are away on a trip or holiday
You have enjoyed the handy auto-responder of email service providers. However, they can only be customised to tell that you are away and that you cannot answer, further telling when you will be back. This, or from time-to-time, check your emails while you are away. Not a pretty picture, right?
Managing a growing business will require more of your time. However, this does not mean that you need to be 24 hours a day, 7 days a week up on your toes to get that big break and continue to do so. Get a voice-based virtual assistant and get the most out of your office hours, and after hours! Ready? Contact us and be more productive!
