It’s nearly the busiest shopping weekend of the year again, and the Small Business Saturday UK team have been on the Big Bus Tour, and have held ‘Inspire’ workshops to encourage entrepreneurs to start a business.

Face for Business and Small Business Saturday UK Plans

Continuing from our involvement last year (see associated blog post from last year) we are planning to open for Small Business Saturday UK, and are offering to take our client’s calls for FREE!

We are also going to re-distribute our ‘Dial Through Fraud’ guidelines which we feel all small businesses should review, as this scam can cost companies thousands of pounds each year.  Get wise and know about it, to ensure that you don’t fall into this trap!

How you can get involved with Small Business Saturday UK

You can get involved on the day and tweet about your business tagging in the Small Business Saturday UK team on @SmallBizSatUK and use the hashtag #SmallBizSatUK for a re-tweet or two!

Use their suggested tweet of ‘UK’s small businesses provide almost two thirds of private sector employment and almost half of private sector turnover’ to encourage your followers to continue to shop local or shop independently with you.

Face for Business goes the extra mile for its clients

Since attending a Small Business Saturday UK reception at Downing Street last year, our Managing Director, Andy MacGregor, felt incredibly inspired to reach out to small businesses to let them know how we can help them. He had this to say…

“Going the extra mile is what we feel makes our service offering different to our competitors. We take pride in our PAs, who are IQ and psychometrically tested, and come with an abundance of life skills and knowledge.  We feel these attributes are important factors when clients are choosing a telephone answering service, as our PAs are at the forefront of your business.”

How Face for Business can benefit smaller businesses

Using a call handling service such as Face for Business can benefit smaller businesses by providing you with a dedicated receptionist to answer your calls whilst you are unavailable. We can also help to give you a professional image, by taking your calls for you, making you appear that little bit bigger and we can also capture any new client calls that you may be afraid you’re going to miss whilst at a meeting or on the other line.

We offer a 7-day free trial, so please visit our website for more information and call us on 0845 031 3232 and let us help your small business grow!
