Why would you use a call answering service when you may only miss one or two calls a day? 
You should ask yourself, “Why doesn’t your business use call answer services?” 
Let me explain… 
You are taking advantage of every single conversation. You’re also losing out on valuable opportunities to grow your business. Business communication rarely hinges on a single phone call, but there’s also no second chance at a first impression. 
When callers get your voicemail, they often decide to hang up and dial one of your competitors instead. This means lost sales opportunities and a revenue boost for your competition. 
Unanswered Calls: The Silent Threat to Your Business Growth 
Imagine a potential client's first interaction with your business ends before it even begins—lost in the abyss of unanswered calls. This scenario is not just a missed opportunity; it's a narrative repeated across countless businesses, eroding trust and stifling growth. In a world where every customer interaction can differentiate between a loyal client and a lost opportunity, ensuring every call is answered is not just good practice—it's essential for survival. 
We want to tell you the story of the “Untold Story of Missed Calls” 
The Overlooked Frontline: 
Your phone line is the frontline of your business. When calls go unanswered, it's not just a missed connection; it's a potential client feeling overlooked and undervalued. It could be the busy mom who needed to schedule a last-minute appointment, the anxious homeowner dealing with an emergency repair, or the eager first-time customer ready to place an order. These are not just calls; they are people seeking a solution you promised to provide. 
The Ripple Effect: 
The consequences of a missed call ripple far beyond a single lost sale. Consider the potential lifetime value of a customer, the word-of-mouth recommendations they might have provided, and the positive online reviews they could have shared. Each unanswered call can compound into a significant financial and reputational loss. 
Have you ever thought about the hidden culprits behind missed calls? 
Overwhelmed Staff: 
In the heart of a bustling small business, your staff are heroes juggling tasks. Yet even heroes have their limits. Each missed call is a story of a team stretched too thin, struggling to balance customer service with their other responsibilities. 
Technological Shortcomings: 
The modern business battlefield has technological wonders and pitfalls. An outdated phone system can quickly become a business's Achilles' heel, unable to keep pace with the world's demands where customers expect instantaneity and accessibility. 
What is the Cost of Silence? 
A Reputation at Risk - A missed call leaves more than an empty line; it plants the seeds of doubt, watering the perception of a business that doesn't value its customers. This perception can quickly become the prevailing narrative in the digital age, as disgruntled customers turn to online platforms to voice their frustration. The stark reality is that online reviews often hold more sway than advertisements, with a single negative experience having the potential to deter countless prospective customers.

After reading that case study, consider the Financial and reputational loss of a missed call. 
One call doesn't sound like a lot. But have you thought about the financial loss? 
One (1) call daily is five (5) calls weekly, and around 20 calls monthly. If your service costs £70.00 per customer on average, that would be £1400.00 per month and £16,800.00 per year, and in five years, you would have lost a staggering £84,000.00 in revenue.
