Communication is something that every business demands and a high level of connectivity in this digital world is an absolute must if you want to be successful that is.
Virtual receptionists are professional receptionists that are remotely located and they are fully briefed on their clients’ businesses, ensuring that all calls are handled courteously and professionally.
Every single business needs someone at the end of a phone, should a potential customer call and such is the diversity of the provider’s services, there’s something to suit every business, regardless of size or industry.
Unanswered Business Calls
This is every company’s nightmare and the best way to avoid this occurring is to enlist the help of a call handling provider who can tailor their service to suit.
You might, for example, already have a great receptionist, but what about the times when she is absent, or what about after-hours calls? The virtual receptionist can cover for those times, ensuring that you never have the situation where calls go unanswered.
Tailored to Suit
Whatever your communication needs, a virtual receptionist provider such as www.officehq.com.au has you covered.
If, for example, you have an emergency support number that customers can call when they have a problem with a product, the virtual receptionist is on call 24/7 and can handle any volume of calls on your behalf.
Some businesses have special promotions and their phone lines become very busy at this time, and all it takes is a quick call to your virtual receptionist provider and they will handle any volume of calls for an agreed period.
Directly employing staff to answer the phone is an expensive business and using a call handling service is far more cost-effective and as the virtual receptionist is a trained professional, you can be sure of a prompt and courteous response. There are many services on offer, which include the following:
Overflow Call Handling
Emergency Response Numbers
They also offer call forwarding, where your calls can be forwarded to any landline or mobile number and this service is available at all hours and for as long as is necessary.
If your company provides a service of any kind, a virtual receptionist service can handle all or just some of your customer calls, depending on how much, or little you need covered. If you have special out of hours number for customers to call, this can be manned around the clock by a virtual receptionist who will forward the necessary information to the relevant parties.
These are simply calls you cannot afford to miss and with a virtual receptionist provider in your team, every call will be professionally handled and forwarded if necessary to the sales team. More sales enquiries mean more conversions and with so much competition out there, you simply cannot afford to miss even a single call.
Whether you own a small diner or run a domestic repair service, a virtual receptionist provider can really help and with tailored services, you only pay for what you use.
If you would like to know more about this cost-effective call handling service, most reputable providers will give you a free trial and you can see for yourself exactly what they can do for your business.

Are you ready to employ Virtual Reception Services? Or become a Virtual Receptionist yourself?
When I think Side Hustle, I think of something that you can start small, in your spare time that could turn into a real business over the years.
It’s not uncommon for working Moms or stay-at-home Moms to start something on the side that they are truly passionate about and find that it develops into something awesome. Something way bigger than originally planned. A full-on business. An empire.
A side hustle can be just that, something you do in your spare time for some spare cash.
Either way, it all starts with YOU and your passions, your interests, your strengths.
Why start a Side Hustle?
If you’re stuck in a dead-end job, bored out of your mind, you’ll be looking for something that makes your heart sing, something that suits your personality.
Or you may be in the right job right now but you feel you’re running yourself ragged for a boss and you’re looking for something for a bit of flexibility and time freedom.
Or maybe you’ve just got from maternity leave and realised you’d rather be home with your baby. You’re looking for something you can do from home.
Or you’re just plain done with the daily grind and the daily commute.
Or you might be where I was a year ago, you’ve started working on your main hustle but it’s taking longer than you expected to bring in money so you try out a few side jobs for extra cash.
Whatever your reason for starting a side hustle, you’re going to want to choose something you’ll enjoy.
So here’s where I suggest you start. First, find out your Wealth Profile.
Huh? What’s a Wealth Profile?
Glad you asked.
Do You Know Your Wealth Profile?
Roger Hamilton identified 8 Different Wealth Profiles and created the nifty Wealth Dynamics Profiling Test so that you can discover your own personal Wealth Profile.
The test works very similarly to any other Psychometric Profiling Test, except this one is to help you uncover which path to wealth would be best for you.
To put it simply, you’ll learn what type of entrepreneur you are. Once you are armed with this knowledge, you’re going to be able to make money faster because you’ll be working within your own strengths, passions and interests.
Do what you love and the money will follow.
Very briefly, here are the 8 Wealth Profiles.
Creators are best at creating. They love new ideas and starting new projects.
Stars love to shine brightly or promote something or someone.
Supporters are great team leaders.
Dealmakers are matchmakers, often matching investors and opportunities.
Traders know how to strike when the iron is hot. Timing is everything to them.
Accumulators build their wealth by building their asset base.
Lords rule quietly, behind the scenes. Their focus is on money, not people.
Mechanics create systems or franchises that work. Perfectly.
I found most of these Side Hustle ideas in this book and there are so many more.
