The Power of the Phone Call
There is no denying we’ve plunged into a high-touch, digital age. But amidst the emails, text messages, and chat boxes, one medium of communication reigns supreme: the phone call.
65% of people prefer to contact a business by phone.
The power of interpersonal communication is alive and well in our high-tech world. Nearly twice as many people opt for the telephone over an online form. In choosing to dial your number, a potential client has made the decision to see how you can help them.
74% of callers are likely to choose another business after a poor phone experience.
Missed calls are missed opportunities. If you don’t answer when clients come to call, odds are, they’ll hang up without leaving a message. How many potential clients have you lost to voicemail? Offer a warm, professional voice to your callers and leave a lasting first impression.
30% of those said they’re likely to leave a bad review.
Word of mouth referrals prove to be the most effective form of advertisement and come without cost. By creating an exceptional client experience from the first touch, you’re laying the groundwork for a trusting, loyal relationship. Give your clients a reason to recommend your practice from the moment you say “hello.”
80% of callers say a good phone experience makes them a repeat customer.
