Companies are constantly fighting for the top spot online and spend thousands of pounds on marketing their business, but are they missing a trick?
Think about how Google works…most consumers will turn to Google when looking for a new product/service. Getting on page one of Google is hard enough let alone getting your listing to sit at the top.
Have you considered how your opening hours effect search particularly on weekends when your competitors are likely to be closed? Try it. Google will automatically list the most relevant service local to you complete with the company’s contact details, a link to their website and where to find them on Google Maps. This listing also includes an Open/Close status. So, if your competitors are closed but you are listed as open, naturally the prospect will call you over them.
You don’t have to physically change anything, you don’t have to open the office and you don’t even have to answer these calls yourself! From as little as £10 per week, Pocket Receptionist can handle these calls for you, take a message, transfer calls to you, handle many enquiries on your behalf and even make appointments, process orders, make bookings and take payments!
Many consumers work during the week and prefer to handle their personal affairs on a Saturday when they have more time. Making yourself contactable on a Saturday will encourage more calls and in turn, more business – it’s a no brainer!
