Live Answering is always better!

A recent study conducted by a large telecoms company showed that the majority of business callers don't like automated message answering services. Of the people surveyed, more than 60% stated that they would hang up rather than leave a message on voicemail. If you want to get more customers you definitely need a live answering service.

One big problem with your customers hanging up when confronted with voicemail is that they are most likely to just ring the next number down the list and this is definitely going to be one of your competitors. Not only do you lose any advertising money that you have spent to get that call, but you also help your business rivals in the process.
