"You never get a second chance to make a good first impression."

Ask yourself:  What’s a phone call worth to your corporate image, brand equity, and profitability?  Do your front-line employees complement your sophisticated, state-of-the-art phone system?

Poor customer service and bad telephone manners chase prospective clients and customers away, destroys customer satisfaction, damages your reputation and credibility, and hurts your bottom line.  Negative word-of-mouth advertising spreads like wildfire and can be extremely detrimental to your business.

A phone call often represents the first impression of your business and determines how you’re perceived within the marketplace.  The way you answer the phone sets the tone for the conversation.  Greeting callers with a cheerful smile translates into an enthusiastic voice that permeates positive energy to exude a warm welcome.  Conversely, a dull, monotone “I can’t wait to five-o-clock” tone travels like a bolt of lightening, painfully. 

Good business begins with proper manners and appropriate etiquette.  The ability to demonstrate good manners, cultivate relationships, build customer loyalty, and deliver superior customer service is essential to your business growth and profitability.  People do business with people they trust and who mirror their value system.
