No matter the amount of money you spend on marketing and advertising, the customer will determine whether or not to do business with your plumbing company based on how your receptionists or dispatchers answer their call. Are your calls being answered correctly?
Why a Live Voice Matters
If a live voice is answering your business calls, you are on the right track! Callers tend to become frustrated with automated attendants or IVR options. And if your callers are sent straight to a business voicemail, they are likely to hang up immediately and call your competiton.
Why are your callers hanging up? Imagine yourself in your caller's shoes. You have a plumbing energency and need help now! Are you going to leave a voicemail or spend time in a call queue? Nope, you are going to call the next plumber who's advertisement reaches you!
