Business answer service

Our receptionists take a message from your customer and send it to you by either SMS or email. SMS incurs a small fee while email is free. These messages are usually forwarded within only a few minutes of the call so you can very quickly respond to the messages that are urgent. By using our easy to use admin system or our downloadable APP you are able to change your message at any time that you want.

Toll Free Answering Service

Using the Virtual HQ toll free answering service makes good financial sense. Our packages start from as little as $29 per month and many of our smaller customers are spending as little as $80 per month. This is significantly cheaper than employing a staff member to sit there and wait for your incoming calls. Another reason why it makes good financial sense is that our costs end up being a variable cost as opposed to a fixed cost. If you use our toll free answering service a lot then you pay a moderate amount while if you don't use us that much then you don't pay very much.

Unlike many of our competitors we only employ local American staff to answer your calls. While it would be cheaper for us to have South American or Asian call centers answering those calls we believe that by having local Americans we provide you with a significantly better quality of service. No wonder many of our customers end up staying with us for a long time!

Why a toll free number makes sense in business

In the world of business, communication is key. But what happens when a customer wants to reach out with a question or concern, but hesitates because of potential call costs? This is where a toll free answering service comes in. Let's look at why such a service is beneficial to businesses of all sizes.

An 800 free answering service works with a special type of phone number, often recognized by the prefix 1-800, though there are other variations. With these numbers, customers can call a business without incurring any charges, regardless of where they are calling from. This simple feature is the first significant benefit of a toll free answering service: It breaks down barriers between a business and its customers.

Imagine being a customer and wanting to ask a question about a product or report an issue. With a toll free number, there's no second guessing. You can pick up your phone and dial without worrying about the call's cost. As a result, businesses using an 800 answering service often see increased customer engagement.

Free calls to a call answering service

But the benefits don't stop at making calls free for customers. A toll-free answering service goes a step beyond by ensuring that every call gets answered professionally and promptly. Whether the call is about a product inquiry, a technical issue, or a billing question, the toll-free call answering service ensures that a professional agent is always available to assist the customer.

A 1-800 number looks professional and increases contact with customers

For the business itself, answering services are a powerful tool for projecting a professional and established image. Whether you're running a home-based business, a start-up, or a small local store, having toll free answering can make your business appear larger and more credible. It sends out a signal that you're serious about your business and that you're ready and able to serve customers, no matter where they're located.

Moreover, a toll free answering service can lead to improved customer satisfaction. Quick and professional response to customer queries and issues can significantly enhance the customer experience. When customers know that they can reach your business easily and at no cost to them, they're more likely to be satisfied and become repeat customers.

Another considerable benefit of a toll-free number answering service is its tracking and routing capabilities. These services can track where calls are coming from, which can be useful for businesses trying to understand their customers better. They can also route calls to different departments or locations, ensuring that customers always reach the right place.

Making it easy to call you on the phone is great for marketing

Finally, 800 numbers can be a great marketing tool. They are easy to remember, especially if you opt for a vanity number – an 800 number that spells out a word related to your business. You can use your toll free number in all your advertising, making it easier for potential customers to contact you.

In conclusion, a toll-free virtual receptionist offers a multitude of benefits. It makes your business more accessible to customers, presents a professional image, enhances customer satisfaction, provides valuable insights into your customer base, and can even aid in your marketing efforts. Whether you're a small business looking to expand your reach, or an established company seeking to improve customer service, an 800 answering service can be a game-changer. So why wait? Embrace the power of a toll free answering service and unlock new levels of success for your business.
