If you find yourself taking your business on the go or unable to use a landline because of your busy lifestyle, there’s no need to go out and get a second cell phone. Learn more about how you can make the most of your business and keep everything stable with customers, even when you are out and about.
Try Communicating Via Email
If you have a smartphone, it can be easy enough to hook up your email to it, and encourage customers to contact you that way. If you are on the go, you’ll still be able to see when new messages come in and handle them as needed. For things that are not emergencies or something that is being followed up on, this can be the easiest way of communicating with people. It also gives you the benefit of a paper trail, should you need it later.
Consider an Extra Number
Rather than trying to remain at the office to get calls, consider having a free virtual phone number, that can forward calls to your cellphone. This allows you to pick up any calls wherever you are, and no one has to know what’s going on or if you are somewhere other than the office. Having a number that doesn’t cost anything extra can save you time and money, making it easy to manage your company. You can even do the same for employees or anyone else who is out on the road or out of the office frequently.
Follow Up at the End of the Day
If there are calls or messages that are not emergencies, consider designating a time of day, sometime during the afternoon, and following up with everyone then. You might have a better chance of getting ahold of people, and it can save you the frustration of not being able to get to calls when you are busy or otherwise out of the office.
If you need to take your business on the go, know that there are several ways you can do so in this day and age. You can encourage people to get in touch with you via email and answer on your smartphone. Setting up a virtual number can help you lower the cost and have calls sent to your cell phone. Another option is to follow up at the end of the day when you are most likely to get people.
