Are you as excited as we are? You do know what time of year it is, right? Of course you do! Christmas is coming! And no matter what type of holiday you celebrate, the holiday season is definitely one worth enjoying. This is especially true for business owners who go all out to secure themselves more business during the busy holiday rush. Sometimes, it’s important to roll out an entirely new advertising campaign for the final two months of the year.
And then again, sometimes all that is necessary are those small little “touches of awesome” that you add to your business. For example, you could simply decorate your office to get your staff into the holiday spirit. Decorating your storefront will inspire the same type of wonderment for your customers. However, have you ever considered decorating your phones? Now, we don’t mean wrapping tinsel around your phone receivers! We’re talking decorations of a different kind.
When customers call your company, it’s important that they receive warm and friendly voices on the other ends of the line. But naturally, there won’t always be live voices waiting there to greet them. At MeloTel, our experience has taught us a lot about how important it is to have a welcoming voice greeting that is recorded in a professional manner. This holiday season, you may want to consider sprucing up your outgoing messages to better celebrate the time of year. Here are four ways to do just that.
1. Special Holiday Hours. Here’s one change to your outgoing messages that is incredibly important. If you own a store that plans on extending its hours, it will be imperative for you to communicate those hours to your customers. Ensuring that your greetings highlight those new hours should be able to get customers out to your store during times that they may have otherwise thought you were closed.
2. Promotions and Offers. There will be a lot of shopping going on in the weeks to come. People will be spending a lot of money. But that means that, more than ever, shoppers will be looking for ways to save money. If your business can help them to save money during their holiday shopping excursions, it will likely help you to make that much more money. Communicate your promotions and offers through your new holiday greeting.
3. Offer Holiday Wishes. Well, that’s what celebrating the holidays is all about, isn’t it? Spreading cheer and well wishes to everyone you meet is a big part of what it means to acknowledge the holiday season. Your new phone greeting can be as simple as wishing your callers the happiest of holidays or as elaborate as singing your favourite holiday jingle. Make your business stand out with the greeting that you decide upon.
4. Give Thanks. Showing your appreciation for the support given to your business by its customers is one of the best ways to own a company that is appreciated. Here’s hoping you’ve had an excellent year. Let your customers know how much their support has helped for your business to thrive in 2014 and wish them all the best in 2015. Your expression of gratitude is not likely to go unnoticed.
