You’ve likely heard it a million times if you’ve heard it even once. Communication is among the most important factors in a good, working relationship. Without strong communication, things are bound to break down. This is the truth whether you’re talking about personal or business relationships. As a business owner, being a good communicator is of paramount importance.
The thing is, you have so much on your plate each and every day. You can’t be expected to be available to take each and every call that comes your way, can you? Well, think about it this way. How do you feel when you call someone and leave a message, only for it to be returned several days later? Or worse, how do you feel when that message is not returned at all?
Business owners like you are very savvy people with busy schedules. It’s important to have your questions answered quickly and your tasks completed promptly. So, there’s a chance that having to leave a message at all is very annoying to you. The longer it takes to get responses from your most important business associates and colleagues, the longer it takes for your projects to be completed.
In many industries, this situation can simply lead to a loss of business. And we all know what that means – a loss of money! This is something no business owner ever wants to hear. So what are some of the things that you can do to ensure that you are always on top of your communication game? The last thing you want is to lose business because you’re not promptly answering questions and responding to important customers and clients.
Forward Your Calls. Especially if you’re a business owner on the go, you don’t want to put yourself in a position where you’re constantly missing calls. This only aggravates clients. Make it so that you can be reached no matter where you are. It would make life so easy if you only had one number that people could call and find you at all times, wouldn’t it? Keep reading!
Turn Your Voicemails Into Emails. You may not always be able to pick up your phone even if you have all of your calls forwarded to one number. Like most entrepreneurs, you’re likely on your computer a lot. Wouldn’t be amazing if each and every one of your voice mails were emailed to you? Perhaps, that would make it a lot easier to check your messages when you don’t have time to be on the phone. Keep reading!
Use Caller ID. This simple, yet effective invention is the perfect tool for screening calls and weeding out the ones that aren’t going to help you accomplish your most important tasks each day.
