7 Ways Toll Free Recorded Messages Can Make More Money For You
In case you thought you knew all there was to know about recorded messages and what they can do for you, check out the following to be sure.
Are you using your own toll-free number? Statistics show that callers are three times more likely to call a toll-free number than a local number, and with your own number you are secure in knowing you won’t lose your prospect to someone else.
Do you have Automatic Number Identification and Reverse Directory Lookup? This feature tracks the telephone numbers of prospects who listen to your ads, regardless of whether they leave a message or not.
Can your system handle multiple callers? Multiple callers should be able to listen to your scripts at the same time, so you don’t have to worry about prospects ever getting a busy signal.
Do you have on-line statistical analysis reporting? Can you access detailed and updated reports of the activity on your hotline through your website? Or, if you’re not “on-line” can you order these same reports by phone, fax or e-mail?
Do you have message notification? A system that can message you by either email or text message as soon as you receive a call, so you can respond to your leads while they’re still hot.
Are you using a Find Me Transfer? Increase your flexibility with a hotline that can be set up so callers are automatically transferred to you by simply pressing ‘0′.
Do you use professionally recorded scripts? These are a good way to give your professional image a boost and make sure the right message is consistently delivered to your prospects every time.
Are you using transcription services? You can save yourself a lot of time by having messages professionally transcribed and emailed to you every week day morning.
Are you missing out on a number of prospects that still would rather call a toll free number than go to a website? Even if it’s a small percentage, that one prospect could be the golden nugget you’ve been waiting for.
Kind of makes you go “Hmmmm, why am I not using this kind of system?
