Top 5 Reasons to Hire a Virtual Assistant to Answer Your Calls

Virtual Assistants is the old Answering Services of years ago coming back with new and improved equipment, technology, skill-sets, and geographic boundaries. In the 80’s when I had several businesses running at one time, I needed the services of a classic Answering Service and mail receiving location as all of the businesses were taking orders, answering constant phone calls, receiving supplies, and these people took orders for us by phone, also taking orders and charging them using my merchant account. Over the 10 years that I used their services before moving one of the businesses into a retail location, I loved it! I am delighted to see they are BACK although under a new name, etc. It just takes time finding the perfect fit where timing, etc. come together without incident.

This gives us many answers to questions about conducting business in various parts of the world! The people I have talked with and/or hired, have been absolutely excellent! I am so glad the services are BACK, and hopefully, here to stay!

I preach consistency. I consistently preach consistency.

It is the one method you can use to make your blog, your newsletter, your social media and even your events better than those of your competitors.

Your company might use events for building awareness, or generating leads, or researching the market. Events can be great for reinforcing the brand and maintaining good ties with clients.

I’ve seen organizations execute events sharply, delivering on the promise of education, networking or plain old fun. I’ve served as event planner for years with different groups, in addition to taking in my fair share of seminars, conferences, receptions and happy hours.

Events are challenging. They require intense focus on the guests and management of a thousand details.

The way to outmaneuver the many competing events is through consistency.

That can include, but is not limited to …
