Convey a Big Business Presence with a Virtual Receptionist
The number of small businesses in the U.S. has increased 49 percent since 1982 according to the Small Business Administration (SBA)¹. Among these small businesses are single-person operations and service professionals: like plumbers, freelancers, independent consultants, salespeople, computer programmers, website developers—and a wide range of others. Such a wide range that a new term has emerged to refer to these independent professionals: gig workers. The gig economy has received much attention recently due to the rapid growth of independent services like Lyft and Airbnb.
While the variety among these gig workers is wide, there’s one thing that many have in common: the need to convey a big business presence, especially when consumers are attempting to reach out to connect with them by phone. That’s where a virtual phone assistant can provide big benefits. Think of it as an e-receptionist.
What does a plumber do when they’re on a job site and another potential client calls?
When a website developer is intent on a project and the phone rings, how can they avoid being distracted?
For these and many other lone, or small business professionals, virtual receptionists provide a convenient, and cost-effective option. Whether your business is large or small, we’re confident that you could benefit from a virtual receptionist system.
