To-Do or not To-Do

Posted by

The never ending to-do list.  You can’t keep up with it and you can’t really delegate it all.  You have a way to do things and training someone to do the things you need done, would take more time than it would be worth.

Answer Network can’t do it all, we know you do some things better.  However, we have mastered one thing.  We are the experts at telephone answering. Answering calls is all we do.

Ever in the middle of one of your many to-do items when you get a call, a request, a need.  Then you go back to your work and can’t remember what you were in the middle of?  We get it.  You need a filter.

Meet your filter.  Answer Network works as your receptionist.  We can call you for the urgent things and just e-mail you later about the little things.  It takes 15 minutes to set up and you can change or tell us more whenever you want.

We are flexible and work around what you need.  Get started whenever you are ready and get back to your to-do list.

The Cost of a Call

Posted by

When a customer calls, you stop working and answer the call.  You stop the project or the task and take a call.  The call lasts a couple minutes, you hang up and spend a minute or two writing down the messaging or e-mailing it to the correct person.

Then what?  You spend a few minutes remembering where you were in the task or you start working on the new task from the call.  Maybe you remember something else that you were supposed to work on and you start that up.  How many valuable minutes did you just lose?

Did you know 60% of your incoming calls are less important than the task they are interrupting?  Really!  We couldn’t believe it either.

That call just took up a lot more of your time than you were expecting it to and if you are working on a deadline or schedule…well then it really became an inconvenience.

Answer Network’s answering service can let you focus on the tasks and not the calls.  Starting at $1.60/day, you can have someone else answer your calls and deliver the messages to you.

Some messages may have an urgent deadline and we can get those e-mailed, texted or even call you immediately.  But for the quick questions, let us answer them.   Let us tell the solicitors that you aren’t interested so that you can stay focused.

Stay uninterrupted for 2 weeks on us, call 1-800-769-7170.
